Here are the top 10 places to eat street food in Mumbai you will find some lip-smacking food at cheap rates. These places will stay evergreen and you must try these at least once in your life.
1. Anand Vada Pav – Vile Parle
The freshly prepared vada pavs and the sweet scent of the dosas and Frankies are bound to get anyone’s mouth-watering. We tried out Mithibai College’s Anand Stall in Vile Parle and we decided to share the experience with you. Over 40 years old, this street food joint started off as little stalls preparing vada pav and sandwiches for the young crowd, but coming up with new and exciting dishes every few months, they are one of the most popular street food joints in the city. A gem in the Vile Parle universe. We tried Anand’s Butter Vada Pav lathered with loads of butter and chutneys at ₹20. Another favourite would be the Grilled Cheese Schezwan Vada Pav that was tasteful with schezwan, cheese and grilled to perfection for ₹60.

2. Sardar Refreshments/Sardar Pav Bhaji – Tardeo
A restaurant definitely deserves to be in the iconic list if its owner, Sardar Ahmed, is the founder of pav bhaji. About 52 years back, Sardar Ahmed blessed us with a food item called ‘Pav Bhaji’. Sardar’s piping-hot butter pav bhaji is a treat to the taste buds, and when we say butter we mean abundance of it. The pav bhaji here, generously garnished with dollops of creamy Amul butter, is quite pocket-friendly.
Address: Tardeo Road Junction, Opposite Bus Depot, Tardeo, Mumbai
Approx Cost: ₹110 for the Amul Pav Bhaji

One that the food is delicious and the second being that is is cheap. We always like something that is fast, crunchy, delicious and in our budget and Raju Sandwich is the right place!
7. Vadapav Aunty
Well, it wasn’t originally known as Aunty Vadapav, but this lady here made it her very own! She has been running this Vada Pav stall in Chembur for more than 35 years. She is very popular because, over the years, the taste and the quality of this vada-pav are intact. Vada Pav is served alongside spicy green chutney and red peanut chutney. This delicious combination is the favourite fast food in the city!
8. Subhas Sandwich
Back in college, Subhas sandwich was our go-to place. The Subhas sandwich store is located between Poddar and Ruia College. They serve some great sandwiches and I personally love their chocolate sandwich. And trust me Subhas uncle is so nice that he would just put in extra chocolate or cheese if you even request once. It is the best place to have a sandwich and I personally recommend this. The prices start from ₹ 60 and beyond.
9. Pure Milk Centre
Pure Milk Centre in Ghatkopar serves all things yummy and they are the most popular stop for dosas in Ghatkopar. They are the most famous places to have dosas as they serve 100 variety of Dosas.
