Mumbai is a city which is full of flavors. This multi-cuisine city has fancy restaurants with delectable menus but let’s be honest these restaurants sometimes can be really expensive for your pockets. That’s the time these two magical words come to rescue – Street Food. Amchi Mumbai is known for its local food and variety. So if you are visiting Mumbai for the first time this list will surely help you.
1) PAV BHAJI @ SARDAR’S
One of the most famous dishes in Mumbai is Pav Bhaji. Hot, spicy, flavourful thick gravy served with crunchy onions and the slice of lime, coupled with butter-dripping and just-off-the-tawa pavs. Sardar Pav Bhaji serves arguably the best Pav Bhaji in Mumbai.
2) VADA PAV @ ASHOK VADA PAV – DADAR
For over 35 years now, has been known for its lip smacking vada pavs. What makes this place a super-hit is the quality of their VadaPav has been the same all these years. This popular joint has been mentioned in various food magazines and celebrities such as Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff and Sushmita Sen often visit the place to enjoy vada pavs.
3) PANI PURI @ ELCO PANI PURI CENTRE
If listening to these two words makes your mouth water then Elco Pani Puri Centre is the place to cool down your taste buds. Having started out as a small joint, Elco is now a two-level eatery that still serves some tempting street food.
4) CHICKEN TIKKA ROLLS @ BADEMIYA
A glorified open-air kitchen on wheels, Bademiya serves the best chicken dishes in Mumbai. If you are in Mumbai this place is a must visit especially for non-veg. eaters. My personal recommendation is chicken tawa with roomali roti.
5) FALOODA @ BADSHAH COLD DRINKS
Enough about food let’s talk about some deserts. If you craving Falooda then Badshaah is the place to be! Offering a huge variety in Falooda, you will surely get confused as to which one to have. My personal recommendation is Royal Falooda, which is filled with lots of dry fruits.
So, these are the places which you must visit if you want to try local food in Mumbai. If you are visiting Mumbai then book your own apartment at Lalco Residency. Here you will enjoy the service and amenities of 5-star hotels for less than you think! Book now and save 40% on comparable hotels.
