3. Hungry Head
Maggi Maggi Maggi! Hungry Head in Powai reminds you of the jingle we all loved as kids with a menu that has all things Maggi in it! Everything here is a must try for a Maggi-lover. We tried the Maggi Sizzler which is a sizzler with exotic vegetables and Shashlik sauce & LOTS of maggi with it! They’ve also launched the new menu and the Maggi Biryani has to be the hero here! The Biryani Maggi has a touch of indian spices and that gives an amazing biryani flavor and it consists of various vegetables and finally topped with some coriander and cheese.
