Mumbai has always been on top of their game when it comes to quirky dishes. Coming to celebrate World Taco Day, Mumbai has wonderfully prepared their own taste of the famous Mexican dish. With introducing ice cream tacos, to going with thepla tacos, there’s a twist in every story. Here are 5 varieties of tacos that have been introduced by Mumbai and loved by all –
1. Thepla Tacos, Chaayos
When a Delhi-based start-up launched its brand known as Chaayos, they swore to give the public the best varieties of chai (tea). But what’s a good chai if you don’t have something great to munch on at the same time. Thus was born the special ‘Thepla Tacos’.Swearing to create innovative and creative snacks for their customers, Chaayos introduced their Thepla Tacos. Basically, the traditional thepla is used as the base for the taco and different types of vegetarian and non-vegetarian stuffing is used to make the yummy creation.
