The Ultimate LBB Guide To The Top 15 Yummiest Fries In Pune
Elephant & Co.'s Bacon & Cheese Fries
A classic combo, Elephant & Co.’s bacon and cheese fries come topped with molten cheddar cheese and – of course – crispy bacon bits. They also serve plain fries, masala fries (our other favourite), and cheese fries – all served with a side of cocktail sauce. Pair them with other food, a cold beer, or as-is; they’re super on their own, too.
Burger11's Masala Fries
Burger11 may be famous for their crazy delicious burgers, but don’t discount their masala fries. Served in a generous portion fit for two, these fries are seasoned with Burger11’s secret spice mix and pack just the right amount of punch. You can add them to your meal to make it a combo, or order them a la carte – either way, don’t miss out on them. Burger11 offers only home-delivery and they even deliver until 4 am.
The Bar Stock Exchange's XXX Fries
The Bar Stock Exchange’s XXX fries make for a great bar snack. These thin, crisp fries are served in a trio of flavours, tossed in different seasonings – plain salted, cheese, and piri piri – and served with a cheese dip.
The Daily All Day's Devil Fries
Devil fries at The Daily comes loaded with a Mediterranean-flavoured chicken mince, and a creamy cheese sauce – ideal comfort food! We also love their truffle oil fries and hear that their sweet potato fries are also worth a try.
Murphies' House Fries
Murphies’ house fries are ‘waffle fries’ – i.e. they look like jaali wafers we used to eat as kids, (but are thicker and softer than wafers). Lightly seasoned (and crisp), they come with a choice of dips – ‘rum drum’ (which is the best pairing), spicy mango, mint mayo, peri peri, sour cream, and saffron. They also serve Cajun fries, seasoned (masala) fries, fries on cheese, Murphies’ ‘special fries’, and even the option of poutine (veg or chicken). We wouldn’t expect anything less from this potato lovers’ haven, and they sure don’t disappoint.
The French Window Patisserie's Pulled Pork Poutine
Poutine is a Canadian-origin dish, consisting of French fries topped with cheese curd and gravy. The French Window’s poutine is available in both veg and non-veg options, but we like their pulled pork version best of all. It’s a rich dish, so don’t underestimate how filling it actually is.
Mahlzeit's 'Special' Fries'
L'Dorado Food Truck's Disco Fries
The Bombay Fries' Chilli Cheese Fries
UFO Fries & Corn's Alien Fries
UFO Fries’ signature ‘alien fries’ are peri-peri seasoned crisp potato batons, topped with a generous helping of sweet chilli sauce, jalapeño sauce, white cheese, and topped with a couple of pickled jalapeño slices. UFO Fries is a vegetarian fast-food joint, and their selection of French fries is quite extensive – not to mention, diverse, and very reasonably priced. They have five outlets in Pune; at FC Road, Viman Nagar, Kothrud, and Hinjewadi.
