Yeh hai Mumbai, meri jaan! Just like the people, culture and everything else about this city, the food has it’s own unique flavor.

The Veg-Cheese-Grill | Yes, it really is pronounced as one word. These sandwiches can be found outside every college in the city, and is probably tastier than the food at most international food-chains. Usually eaten with green chutney or ketchup, this delicious concoction is often shared between people because of it’s size.

Panipuri |  fried spheres of goodness are stuffed with spiced potatoes and lentils, dipped in a sweet tamarind paste, and finished with a spicy green liquid concoction, before being served to you one at a time. It sounds complicated and messy, and you’re pretty likely to choke at some point of the other, but it’s all worth it when the first one breaks inside your mouth. The ultimate Bambaiyya bliss.

Frankies | A beautiful, thick roti/naan is buttered and grilled to a crisp, which is then slathered in Mumbai’s favourite spicy Schezwan sauce, and then piled up with any of spiced meat, curried potatoes or eggs. Before being rolled up and given to you in one of Tibb’s infamous striped paper envelopes, one adds onions, lemon juice, the magic brown spice nobody can identify, and in my case, a ton of cheese.

Indian Chinese | a plate of Shezwan fried rice and manchurian is the ultimate fix to life’s nuisances. Keep in mind that the shadier the location of an Indo-Chinese (Or as we call it - regular Chinese) restaurant, the better the food.

Vada Pav | Often called “The Indian Burger”, this delectable treat is the go-to food for any road trip, even if it is to Thane. It’s made of spicy potatoes fried in gram flour batter, and is eaten with spicy garlic chutney and a steaming cup of chai. And of course, it’s cheap as can be. How can one possibly top this?

Street Hawker’s Food | The ultimate after school snack, these hawkers will provide you with the best eats for the bus ride home, with pocket money to spare. From chana jor garam (roasted black gram tossed in lemon juice and spices), to kairi (raw mango slices, with chilli powder and lemon juice) to roasted peanuts, these hawkers were the Gordon Ramsay’s of every Mumbaikar’s childhood; they knew the recipe for heaven on a plate.

Dosas | Mumbai’s dosawaalas are known for the crazy combinations of ingredients that they serve with a dosa, and there’s no boundaries to how far they can go. From spicy potatoes to mixed veggies to noodles, these things can probably be eaten with ANYTHING. And I’m not complaining at all. But, one thing remains unchanged through this madness - the giant spoon of butter the bhaiyya will put on your dosa before anything else.

Sizzlers | Created by Firoz Erani in 1963, this dish is essentially an intricate puzzle of food on a small, scorching hot wrought-iron plate. I’m sure that even Joey Tribbiani would have to share his food to actually finish one of these - it’s that much food. I mean, fries? Good. Veggies? Good. Meat? Good. Good. Gravy on top? Cheese on top? GOOD.
