Submarines or subs is a personal favourite for many. In the beginning, Dinemore was one of the very few establishments to serve it. Today, many places are serving this and some have put their own twist to it too. So here we list down where to find good and affordable submarines.
As mentioned in the beginning, Dinemore is one of the earliest places to serve submarines. The brand created likeness and craving to the famous shrimp submarine. Even though many have come after, Dinemore subs are still considered the best; replacing their taste and flavour isn’t easy.
The portions are huge, the prices are incredibly affordable, and what is good about it, is the consistent quality. The Shrimp Sub is still in demand but isn’t available in most outlets. The price range of submarines starts from Rs 550 onward.
