Best Street Side Joints Where Mumbaikars Love to Eat Junk

Mumbai’s streets are incomplete without the ever-bustling street side food joints located across small corners and narrow lanes. These street-side joints add masala to our monotonous life. But Mumbai is not just about “cutting chai” or “vada pav”. A walk down any one of the ‘Khau Galli’ proves that Mumbai has a lot to offer. The cultural confluence of local and global flavours makes Mumbai one of the most amazing cities for street food rendezvous.

    Pani puri at Elco

    Unique Street Dishes, Mumbai

    Pani puri and Mumbai has a never-ending love story. The story begins with just one crunchy puri but continues until tears of pure satisfaction trickle down the cheek. These small packets of taste bombs are a staple for every Mumbaikar. Crunchy and tangy Pani puri is found more or less at every corner. But nothing matches the pani puri at the Elco market. Served with boondi and boiled potatoes, sprinkled with chaat masala, utmost attention is paid to hygiene and cleanliness. The server even changes his gloves for every new customer, and always serves sukha puri with a big fat smile.  Elco’s big enormous puchkas are even Ranbir and Deepika’s favourite.

    Rolls, Mumbai

    Giving an Indian touch to the classic Mexican burrito, Mumbai’s Bombay Frankie is in no doubt far better than the Mexican version with its spiciness and tanginess. There are a lot of frankie destinations in Mumbai, but what makes Breadkraft the most loved frankie hotspot is their freshly made warm soft tortillas. Perfectly curated warm tortillas wrapped around utterly spiced fillings and topped with pickled onions along with a dash of lemon or cilantro mint chutney will leave you wanting for more. This is also a cheese lovers paradise, as Breadkraft loads their frankie with ooey gooey cheese that will directly pull the string of your heart. Just a bite of this wrapped delicacy will engulf you with never satiating hunger.
