From Jini Dosa To Cheese Pani Puri: 20 *Must-Have* Foods In Mumbai


Mumbai is a city that people from all across the country fondly call home. It’s our happy place, a city that never sleeps. If you’re a Mumbaikar, you’d totally relate when I say that we’re all - always in a hurry to be somewhere. But if there’s something that makes home so unique it is that people of so many different ethnicities live together in harmony. And when there’s so much cultural diversity, there’s bound to be a burst of flavours around. 
Mumbaikars thrive on street food, food that’s easy to eat and tasty (although far from nutritious). I’m talking vada pav, panipuri and other finger lickin’ delicacies that are unique to aamchi Mumbai. If you’re new to the city and you’re looking for absolutely delectable food - here’s a list of the best street food you can have.

The Best Street Food In Mumbai

Before we proceed let me warn you that this is a city obsessed with bread (pav). We really love good, soft bread. A lot of the street foods that you get in Mumbai are served on a bed of soft, buttery bun!

Vada Pav

You don’t have to be a Mumbaikar to understand our obsession with vada pav. Deep-fried besan coated masala aloo on a bed of soft pav, drizzled in teekha and meetha chutney. Salivating? Me too! You can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anytime in between to satisfy those mid-day cravings. 
Where: Any chai wala or vada pav wala make great vada pav 
How much: Approximately 10-20 Rupees

Kanda Bhajiya

A nice garam chai and some kanda bhajiya is the perfect monsoon snack. Sit by your window or by the ocean and munch on this deliciousness! If you’re fond of bread, you can also have bhajiya pav. You won’t regret the calories, trust me.

Pav Bhaji

Pav bhaji is basically mixed vegetables mashed into a pulp, drenched in butter and if you’d like - a generous drizzle of cheese. Served with butter pav and cooked on a flat-griddle pan, this is one dish you don’t want to miss. It’s served at almost every fast-food Indian restaurant and even on the streets.
Where: The best places to have pav bhaji in Mumbai are Juhu Beach, Amar Juice Centre in Vile Parle and Sardar Pav Bhaji in Tardeo
How much: Approximately Rs. 150-200

Kheema Pav

Kheema pav is basically minced meat served on a bed of buttery, soft bread. As a city obsessed with bread, absolutely everything served to us on a warm bun is comforting. The Kheema Pav is delicious as a meal or even a snack in between, you absolutely must try one served at Prithvi Cafe in Juhu.

How much: Approximately Rs 250

Misal Pav

Technically a dish from Pune, the misal pav was a hot favourite in college. Partial to the misal served in my college, the place has some of the yummiest misal I’ve ever eaten. If you do happen to visit Mithibai college, try to get into the N.M college canteen and order yourself a plate of misal pav. And if you’re fond of samosa’s, I would also recommend you try the samosa - sambhar! 
Where: N.M College Canteen
How much: Approximately Rs. 50
