Food is a joy everyone loves to experience; and all cities have certain food places that are spread all over the city, are unique only to that city and are loved by the locals. They also make a traveler want to come back to them again and again, and tend to form an association with their memories of the city. The difference between a food chain and a restaurant, apart from the definitions, is that food chains usually tend to be more fairly priced and offer the same taste spread over a city, hence become more accessible. Some of the most well-known food chains in the world like Dominos, McDonalds and Subway have become iconic names associated with cuisines from different places. Some of the most loved food chains in Pune are listed below and we recommend you to check them out!
