Pondicherry, lovingly referred to as Pondy, is more of a French mirage in India. Only difference being that it is very much real. Cobbled lanes, quaint cafes, ancient churches, French music that streams from restaurants―this place has everything for anyone craving for a French connection.
Wafts of freshly-baked croissants, crepes, pastries, breads, baguettes and more ride the wind here—Pondicherry is just the place to fall in love with French cuisine. While Tamil specialties in the restaurants here are worth digging into, foodies cannot resist the lure of French cuisine.
