Street Food of Pune

####I am trying to update it continuously

In Pune, it is possible to get street food of any state (except a few exceptions). The name of the stuff may be the same but the taste will be entirely different.

There are some small outlets as well as push carts which are very popular and one has to nearly queue up no matter what time of the day it is. Some of them are not very popular but on the way to become one in times to come. Here are some places which are very good in taste.

1. Vaijnath Tea, Opp Fire Station, Vallbh Nagar, PCMC (stall)

2. Srinath Snacks, Opp Fire Station, Vallbh Nagar, PCMC (stall)

Serves piping hot Vada Pav and the stuff taken out from the frying wok disappears in a minute. The freshness is the key.

5. Venkateshwara Idli Dosa (push cart)

Native of Hyderabad serves Excellent Idli, Vada, Dosa, Utappa etc. What is different… white chutney which is made up of ground nuts, red chutney which is firy and Sambhar which is not sweet. Excellent take away packing which one will not expect from a push cart.

6. Dangi Pattis (small shop)

Located near Vaital Baba Chowk (near Audi Showroom on Senapati Bapat road); this shop sells only bread-potato pattis, It is always crowded and if you are in time then only expect to get it.
Big bread folded in half and stuffed with boiled and mashed potatoes mixed with garam masala, coriander and ginger; dipped in gram flower batter and deep fried.
Served on piece of newspaper; Pattis is always piping hot and the stuff vanish from the tray in no time.

If you can’t understand Marathi language here is the translation of what is mentioned in the picture above.
