Mumbai street food wouldn’t be Mumbai street food if it weren’t for chaat. Our love for Pani Puri is unparalleled, but if we were to think of one underdog in the chaat scene, it would undoubtedly be Papdi Chaat. Unlike other chaat variants, you could add absolutely anything to this dish and it would still taste sublime. But primarily, papdi chaat comprises a mix of crushed papdi, a boatload of chutneys, a spicy potato mixture, and a generous amount of sev on top. And if you are in the mood, a splash of dahi just takes the dish to another level altogether. But where does one go to try out this creation in the city? We took it upon ourselves to find the best papdi chat in Mumbai and came up with some pretty great results.

3. Delhi Highway

The other city in India that is known for being the best place for chaat lovers is the capital city of Delhi. I mean, the North Indians do know how to make a mean papdi chaat. But don’t worry; you don’t have to go all the way to Delhi to sample some. Delhi Highway in Marol brings the original essence of Delhi chaat to their version of papdi chaat. With two options to choose from, we say go for the Bhalla Papdi Chaat, which brings together the best of chaat along with soft, pillowy dahi bhallas.

Because chaat mainly falls under the umbrella of street food, the majority of people tend to stay away from it. Hygiene is the main concern. And if that’s the reason why you stare at papdi chaat longingly from a distance, then Ram & Shyam will become your go-to spot. Wondering why? It’s because they make all their chaats using mineral water!
