Being an ardent foodie, my evenings in childhood were solely dedicated to finding new places to spend my pocket money… mostly street food in Chembur.

When I grew up, my horizons broadened (Territories of Mumbai) and I strode all over the city to experience what I had been missing out on – more of Mumbai street food.

So, here I am presenting my list of the best of the best of Mumbai I have tried.

1. Vada Pav (Anand, Vile Parle)

If Mumbai was a food item, it would be vada pav. This is probably why there is a conflict of love when it comes to picking that one place to have a vada pav. But Anand to Mumbai is what Sanju’s Corner is to Chembur.

There are at least 50,000 vada pav stalls in Mumbai and the competition between them will put IIT Bombay’s cut-off list to shame.

Located outside Mithibai college, Anand’s stall is that perfect romantic setting for a quick hot spicy date (of course I meant with food).

Where: Opposite Mithibai College, Gulmohar Road 1, Vile Parle West, Mumbai

Open: 8 AM to 11:30 PM

Burn: ₹200 (for two)

5. Pav Bhaji (Sardar’s, Tardeo, Amar Juice Centre)

I love butter and can have dollops and dollops of it. If you like your pav bhaji like the way I like it, head over to Sardar Refreshments in Tardeo.

Fluffy utterly butterly pav with even more butterly bhaji… ummm just the kind of food you will crave on your cheat day. The wait is long but it is totally worth it!

Culminate the beautiful high-calorie rendezvous with chocolate mousse and caramel custard and lead yourself into eternal bliss.

Where: Tardeo Road Junction, Opposite Bus Depot, Tardeo, Mumbai

Open: 12 PM to 2 AM

Burn: ₹250 (for two)

These 5 were my favourite. Which are your favourite food places in Mumbai?
