One of the iconic and legendary restaurants, an Irani hotel, in Pune located on F C Road is a landmark in its own right. It has seen generations on Punekars sit on its chairs sipping tea and having bun maska. It has retained its old world charm of wooden chairs, tables, cupboards even mirrors. The chairs are nowhere to be seen these days, probably only to be found in Irani joints in Mumbai. Although they do not have any cushioning, its feels different to be sitting in them. I had my first breakfast in Pune in April 2005 at this place when I landed in Pune for the first time on my job posting. After that experience, I kept going back alone and in groups for breakfast, lunch, snacks, tea, dinner, desserts etc. This place is legendary for its non-vegetarian food but vegetarian fare is also good. For breakfast, try bun maska + tea, omelette, bhurji. For lunch/dinner, I found Veg Diwani Handi, Veg Bhuna to be amazing. But when had with Roomali roti, it tastes even better. I have even had roomali rotis dry without any accompaniments. The dal fry is also good and tastes best with the crisp fried brown onions in it. For desserts, please try the caramel pudding and bread pudding. Both are just mouth-watering and I bet you will not find this taste anywhere else. All this leads to a gastronomical experience of its own kind. You have to come here many times to taste their fare, let the taste linger in your mouth and you will feel the same as I am.
