Here are some of my favorite street food joints in Mumbai
Vada Pav at Anand next to Mithibai College
Vada pav is the most popular street food of Maharashtra. It is practically available in every nook and corner and enjoyed by the rich and poor alike. It is nothing but patties made of mashed potato, garlic, chillies and coriander. Vada pav is then coated with chickpea flour paste and fried golden and then laid in a “humble pav”, with coriander chutney and sprinkled with garlic and chilli powder. If in Mumbai, you should try the vada pav at Anand next to Mithibai college or the ones available outside Dadar station. You could try this speciality in your neighbourhood street as well and there will not be much of a difference in taste.
Kheema Pav at Paramount Mahim
Kheema Pav is one of the more popular breakfast items found in most Mughlai restaurants. It is quite tasty and affordable on the purse. Most of the restaurants in prominent Muslim localities such as Mahim or Mohammad Ali road would have this dish on their menu.
Chicken tikka rolls at Bademiya
The famous chicken tikka rolls of Bademiya will bring back tasty memories. This place is right behind the grand Taj Mahal hotel. You get kebabs, skewers of meat as well as a variety of other dishes.
Tandoori and prawn fry at Jai Jawan
After a tiring day of shopping on Hill road, you will see a long queue of people in front of Jai Jawan. Some of Jai Jawan’s specialities include Tandoori Chicken, Punjabi Prawns Masala, and Punjabi Prawn Fry.
Pav Bhaji and Pani Puri at Elco Arcade
Pav Bhaji is another street food that is specially loved by people of all age groups. You can find pav bhaji stalls at most places. In the case of pani puri, the vendor will put a thumb into a crisp fried sphere, fill it with potato, chickpeas, onions and sprouted lentils. The vendor will then fill it with a sweet-and-sour mix of tamarind and jaggery along with a liquid blend of coriander, mint and garam masala. The Pav Bhaji and Pani Puri at Elco Arcarde is a must have on every foodies list.
