Devour delicious fish fry for Rs. 10 only at this street-side heaven on St. John Baptist Road, Bandra run by Flory Gomes.
Head to Bandra, the queen of suburbs, that’s known as much for its upscale restaurants as its street food. But this is one Bandra food-stall that is truly of the blink-and-you-miss-it variety. So don’t blink because you don’t want to miss out on it.
Tucked away on St. John Baptist Road, on your way from Nutcracker to Taj Mahal Tea House, is Parry Wines. Right adjacent to it, stands Flory Gomes with her mouth-watering preparations. Two humble tables joined together make for her display space. But what’s on offer is king. Mandeli Fry (Rs. 10, sold in threes), Bangda Fry (Rs. 40), Chicken Cutlet (Rs. 40 per piece) and Prawn Cutlet (Rs.40 per piece). The cutlets are a deep fried potato patty stuffed with chicken or prawn mince and caramelized onions. Take our word, they can calm even the wildest hunger pangs. In case you’re on a non-fried food trip, go for the chakna (boiled chickpeas and other tidbits).
Flory has been running this place for the past 12 years, starting at 7 pm and intending to shut at 11 pm. However, most of the days she sells out much before that and has to shuttle between her home and the stall for refills. But with her around, your evening party scene is sorted out. A stop at Parry Wines and her stall is all you need!
