6 must have breakfast foods in Pune
6 must have breakfast foods in Pune, is the blog for everyone who wants to taste the authentic,traditional and tasty breakfast dishes in ‘amache Puneri Pune’.
Pune is 2nd largest city in Maharashtra,India and is known by many names be it “Oxford of the east “,the “two wheeler city”,Peshwa city etc etc.It is that city of India where family traditions are still followed and enjoyed and it has rich cultural heritage attached to it.
The most important thing for which Pune is famous for is actually its people which we call Puneri and their idiosyncrasies. People of Pune are unique in their own way and have opinion on each and every thing. They are very inclined towards art, beauty, music, exercise, nature and most importantly food. They are the biggest foodies and enjoy their food culture a lot.There are many punekars who meet at the same tea stall or the same tapri(small kiosk shop) or the same food joint for almost 20 years and still don’t get bored with any of it.
I am not an exception either and above all I am a big foodie myself who loves to indulge in good food and like describing it to my friends. I have taken that DHARA OIL advertisement saying..”hum kamate kyu hai…khane ke liye” very seriously so here are my top 6 must have breakfast foods in Pune when you are in my beautiful and cool city.
6 must have breakfast foods in Pune – No 1:Nothing like south indian idli,dosa,upma and wada
When it comes to south Indian food the only and only name comes to my mind is Vaishali (http://www.vaishalihotel.in/ …no its not because I have always eaten there and it stands on the most happening streets of Fergusson College road or F C road which also happens to be my college but the quality, ambiance, food service and on top of it its management is really cool.
Roopali (and Wadeshwar (http://www.wadeshwar.com/Restaurant/default.aspx) also are other South Indian options on the same road……but nothing beats the Sambar made in Vaishali…try it yourself.
6 must have breakfast foods in Pune – No 2: Puneri Misal
Punekars love to have their Sunday brunches at the famous Misal joins like Bedekar(http://www.bedekarmisal.com/), Kata kirr, Ramnath or Shrikrishna. We punekars love to debate over politics while having our tangy tasty missal and we don’t mind even if we have to wait in queues to get inside because more the time more the conversations.
Misal joints are flocked with students, and is a budget friendly option which is affordable to most of the people.

Punekars who love the British style of breakfast consisting of eggs and bread have amazing options like café Good luck (https://www.zomato.com/pune/cafe-goodluck-deccan-gymkhana),where you can savour on Bun maska chai.

6 must have breakfast foods in Pune- No 4:Appa chi khichadi and Badshahi
This Appa chi khichadi joint is perhaps one of the oldest in Pune and has an area where hardly 10 people can sit at a time but the taste of the sabudana khichadi and the raita of cucumber served with it is a hit amongst punekars.
‘KHI-KHA ‘the short form of ‘khicadi kakadi’ and can only and only be done by a Punekar.We love to give our own short names to places as we don’t believe in wasting our energies in nonsense talks…again a trait of a Punekars. We recognize places with short forms like ABC, FC Road, JM Road, LBS Road, SB road etc.Do also try this place if you want to have a feel of a old style Puneri restaurant with wooden benches.
Badshahi is another old and unique restaurant on Tilak road where you can have ‘batata wada’ which is different from other wada joints as the filling is white and its served with spiced curd.
