Did you just ask, “What’s for breakfast” in Mumbai? I am pretty sure you just meant vada pav with cutting chai. That is what runs in the bloodstreams of the Mumbaikars. It is an easy brekkie option that you can have on the go because this city truly never stops. There is a vendor in Thane that sells some of the greatest Tandoori Vada Pav. So much so that it is even a favourite of Maharashtra’s CM Eknath Shinde. He loves to relish this one and maybe next time you might run into CM and enjoy a plate of Tandoori Vada Pav with him. 

This Vada Pav Stall In Thane Has CM Eknath Shinde As A Customer!

Thane’s Ashtavinayak Katta has been doing rounds on the Internet after CM Eknath Shinde was spotted enjoying a plate of the delicious Tandoori Vada Pav. What is so great about this? Well, Ashtavinayak Katta has given a twist to the basic vada pav and put a tandoori twist to it. Firstly they grill the vada and sprinkle a BBQ sauce. Then assemble their great loaded vada pav with veggies, sauces, cheese, and more. 

What adds more flavour to it is that Ashtavinayak Katta grills it again! Finally, they slather a chutney and top it off with chura. No wonder Eknath Shinde loves this stall! It is known to prepare a batch of 50 to 60 vada pavs together. It is so popular that they have a waiting time and costs at just ₹50. Have you ever been to this popular stall in Thane or are intrigued to visit now?
