5 Ways in which A Foodie from Pune is different from that of Mumbai

Food of Pune and Mumbai

 

Pune vs. Mumbai!

This has always been a sparked debate for the residents of the both the respective cities. And when it comes to the food options they serve, Pune seems to be a little reserved, accounting to a comparatively smaller area than Mumbai. While you can explore a lot of cuisines spread throughout the sprawling city of Mumbai and its suburbs, you are left to choose between a fewer number food joints in Pune that offer local food at their best, making the complicated puzzle of WHERE TO DINE a simpler one.

And so, here are the 5 ways in which a foodie from Pune if different from that of Mumbai.

 

1. Quick snacks and street food

Vaishali

 

Most of the Mumbaikars thrive on local street food due to the busy pace of life. They’re always in search of quick snacks that can keep their tummies satiated for a considerable amount of time. Samosa with Chola at Guru Kripa, Sion or Masala Papad at Kalbadevi are meant to be the most righteous choices since the Mumbaikars who are always willing to opt for anything more than a Vada Pav. In Pune, we always have a large crowd outside Vaishali on FC road waiting for a table and for a good reason! You get the best Sev Puri Dahi Puri, Sabudana vada, and Dosas that can literally make you drool over their buttery taste!

 

2. Late Night Meals

What is better than satisfying your late-night hunger pangs with some delicious food? For the Mumbaikars, Bademiya’s rolls, Colaba continues to be the savior for nocturnal foodies. And what’s in Pune? Amriteshwar at Nal stop signal serves freshly made kaande Pohe, sabudana khichadi, idlis and chai right at the break of dawn, urging you to stay up late at night every day.

 

3. Main course meals

Mumbai has got a great diversity of food chains offering pure vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian cuisines. For example, the White Biryani at Noor Mohammadi, Bhendi Bazaar or Butter Chicken at Noorani Café, Tardeo are well known for savoring the gourmet senses in the foodie of a Mumbaikar. But, to compete with this, Pune has got Tiranga Non-Veg’s Gawthi Chicken Curry with a perfect blend of hot spices and soft Jowar Bhakris straight from the tava! Besides Tiranga, Arthur’s Theme serves continental food like classic French sauces, with that ‘cosy-Pune feel’ that will win you over. So, exotic food is not a no-no in Pune and it is no behind than any city!

 

4. Desserts

A meal without a dessert is a meal hardly consumed, hence Dessert is surely the best part of the meal. While there are no exceptions to Badshah Falooda center in Crawford market, or ice cream sandwiches at K. Rustom, Churchgate, Pune has Sujata Mastani for its unimaginably creamy hybrid ice cream milkshakes, a one-stop destination for handmade ice creams and faloodas with multiple outlets throughout the city. And so, Puneites can ditch their calories only under a single roof!

 

5. Cafes

Good friendships start from a good cup of coffee. If you are a Mumbaikar, you might want to walk in Kala Ghoda café or The Hardrock Café or even Leopald Café within the vicinity of the city. But Puneites is a little bit lucky in this regard as the exclusive Coffee House, located in the heart of the city, is not only a cafeteria but also serves a variety of mouth-watering snacks like Pav Bhajis, Dosas, Idlis, Uttapams, Indian food, Chinese food, Mexican food and lovely, thick milkshakes with an undisputed hospitality.

A  place that you would want to go again and again!

 

Summary

This article explains us about the trivia how a Pune Foodie is different from a Mumbai foodie. The different food options that these two cities have to offer are briefly compared in this write-up. Pune is comparatively a smaller city with less number of suburban areas, hence the less number of food joint options in the city. But each of these outlets has a unique way of serving multiple cuisines under one roof making them stand out from the Mumbai joints. Puneites crave more for Maharashtrian food rather than accumulating a taste for other cuisines whereas you can find a wide diversity of consumers in Mumbai who demands a variety of cuisines hence the high number of food outlets in the city.
