Pondicherry is also more commonly known as Pondy, and is a very popular tourist destination located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Upon visiting this place you will notice that there is a lot of French influence in Pondicherry in the buildings, churches, and the cuisine has a French touch.
White Town and Baker's street are two such prominent places where you can get to eat real authentic French pastries, brioches, and baguettes and these are the places where at one point in time these were well known as established French settlements.
You should not be surprised to see many dishes which have been blended or married with French dishes or if you see and get to taste some French dishes with a little bit of local twists and seasonings.
Apart from the French dishes you can also opt in for some authentic and traditional Tamil, Malayalam and Telugu cuisines which are easily available in Pondicherry. This city is very expressive when it comes to expressing the love for life and food in this lovely and enchanting city.
