Baner-Pashan Link Road (BPLR) has become a hub of great eateries and having tried a few of them, I have found them to be good and unique at their offerings.

I happened to read the article on a Punekar's favourite dishes to eat during the monsoon season and was a tad disappointed about not finding Biryani on the list. But then again, there's no season to enjoy some steaming, scrumptious Biryani, no? I could blabber on about how flavourful the dish is, how it feeds our souls... was probably Jesus's favourite food etc. But that's not what you're here for. So, getting right to the point, here are some of the places that serve the good stuff in Pune.

I first visited Pune in 1989, hunting for a place in the BCS program of Fergusson College. I walked from Lakshmi Road (where I was staying) to FC, and beyond and back every day. In those days, I can honestly say the University of Pune was pretty much the end of buzzing social life. Areas beyond that were developing and settling.
