7 Street Foods that we are missing right now

 Do you remember those golden days when you used to go out for fancy dinners or chaat rendezvous on the streets? When food hopping was a real thing. Chole bhature, vada pav, Frankie, sandwich aloo tikki, misal pav, pani puri and so many drool-worthy others were always available! Well, we have gone more than 21 days without them, and don't know how much longer it's going to be. 

 

Here is an appreciation post to all the unsung street food of India we are missing so much right now.

    Vada Pav

    Vada Pav

    Fast Food, Bandra

    That feeling when you wait for your favourite vada pav wala to place a pippin hot vada in a chutney slathered pav with signature red, garlic powder chutney and serve it to you with fried green chillies, cannot be fully expressed in words. That instant hit of spices with light notes of sweet. Vada Pav is indeed one of the best snacks to have in Mumbai.

    Momos

    Momos

    Fast Food, Bandra

    It is difficult to not truly, madly and deeply fall in love with Momos. Little dumplings filled to the brim with all kinds of flavours and served with the most delicious of chutneys. There are those melt-in-your-mouth cheesy ones, the crunchy on the outside and succulent from the inside ones, those transparent ones and so many others. We all miss gobbling them one by one!

    Chaat

    Chaat

    Fast Food, Bandra

    Chaats are mini pegs of happiness we treat ourselves to, from time to time. Consider the sheer beauty in the plate: the mix of textures, colours and flavours. Hot and cold, sour, sweet and spicy, crispy and soft. A sev puri sometimes becomes a mid-day meal, a samosa chaat after a hard day at work works wonders and bhel is like that nibble we all love. Chaat is what we used to eat for light snacks with friends

    Sandwich

    Sandwich

    Fast Food, Bandra

    Sandwiches are more of a comfort food than just a street snack. There’s a lot that can happen between two slices of bread. Though we can still prepare the basic ones at home right now, however, those cheesy grill ones, that bahubali sandwich, Mexican paninis and particular flavours from our favourite vendors are giving us major cravings.

    Pani Puri

    Pani Puri

    Fast Food, Bandra

    There is something utterly satisfying and delicious when a crunchy puri filled with sweet and spicy pani bursts like a bubble of flavour in your mouth. When it comes to pani puri, we all have our own way of gobbling them and even call them with different names. What Pani Puri is to Mumbaikars, Golgappe is to Delhites and Puchka to a Bengali - an absolutely ravishing street food. We miss you pani puri.

    Frankie

    Frankie

    Fast Food, Bandra

    The stape, humble and on the go snack, that’s full of powerful flavours - Frankies are the unsung heroes of the street food. Soft tortilla rolls stuffed with all your favourite flavours along with crunchy fresh veggies and loads of cheese. Slathered with schezwan sauce and stuffed with all that you can imagine. Remember that euphoria feeling when you sink your teeth in the fiery hot rolls while chatting away with your friends?

    Desi Chinese

    Fast Food, Bandra

    Desi Chinese is like another essential vitamin for hardcore foodies. Spicy noodles, Chinese bhel, Manchurian, and many others. Pocket friendly and full of Indo-Chinese flavours, they are everyone's favourite. Every bite is full of a riot of flavours waiting to be experienced!
