In the Venn diagram of places frequented by both college-goers and thrifty adults, this place would occupy a clear central position. Wynkk is one of the most budget-friendly bars in Pune, and that is common news to anybody that has stuck around for long enough.

This unassuming little cafe is our very own beach heaven nestled in the lanes of Viman Nagar. Not only is the food known for being immensely pocket-friendly, it's also known for offering lip-smacking flavours packed in each bite. For the next time you and I are free to visit, we urge you to give their delicious masala fry Pomphret a try.
