anand dosa

1) Jini Dosa

anand dosa

I don’t know if it’s true, but a lot of people say that Jini dosa was first available at Anand Dosa! Also the name Jini – something one can never forget. Jini dosa is a must try item here. It’s a medley of flavors and textures – vegetables, sauces and butter.

2) Pizza Dosa

anand dosa

Tangy sauce, capsicum and onion, and lots of cheese – all of these in a Pizza dosa. And it is served like a pizza too! Really cute mini triangles. Definitely worth a try.

3) Mysore Masala Dosa

My absolute favorite – the Mysore Masala Dosa here is really yum. Onion, tomato and capsicum in a slightly spicy red chutney and some Pav Bhaji masala. Definitely try this here.

4) Vada Pav

Their Butter Vada Pav is really tasty. They in fact serve some interesting types of Vada Pav, including Schezwan Vada Pav.

5) Kala Khatta Soda

Instead of indulging in a regular cola, try their Kala Khatta soda. It is packed with flavor and also lots of jeera.

Anand dosa is almost always crowded so be prepared to wait in a queue for your order. And their dosa size is pretty huge – they are good enough for sharing among two people. It’s best to go here in a group as then you can try multiple different items.

Here are some more must visit Mumbai Street Food places.

Best places for Pav Bhaji in South Mumbai

Pav Bhaji
Pav Bhaji is something that’s available everywhere in Mumbai and yet there are a few places that can’t be missed.

Watch this video to know my favorite Pav Bhaji spots in South Mumbai.


Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Chowpatty

At Chowpatty, there’s more to enjoy than just the sea. Pav Bhaji is something that you definitely need to try there.

For more things to eat in Chowpatty watch  this video

Manohar Pav Bhaji

Pav Bhaji

A humble joint in Girgaon, Manohar is known for their pav bhaji minus any onion and garlic. Their bhaji is high on flavor and  definitely worth a try.

Sardar Refreshments

Pav Bhaji

Probably the birth place of pav bhaji, Sardar Refreshments has its own unique blend of spices and of course loads of butter. This place is always packed, but the bhaji is worth the wait.

Watch my video from Sardar Pav Bhaji here.

Sukh Sagar

Pav Bhaji

Another famous joint, Sukh Sagar is known for its idli, juices and of course Pav Bhaji. However I do feel that over the years their taste has kind of changed. In spite of that, you’ll see at least one pav bhaji on every table here.

Maji Sagar

This is a restaurant located in Tardeo and is usually packed in the evenings. And one thing that you need to try here is their Pav Bhaji for sure. I usually end up trying their cheese Pav Bhaji.

Badshah Cold Drinks House

Any visit to Crawford Market is incomplete without visiting Badshah. They are known for their falooda, but their Pav Bhaji is definitely something you must try.

Gypsy Corner

A small eatery in Shivaji Park Dadar, Gypsy Corner is known for their chaats, snacks and Maharashtrian fare. However, I personally feel they make an awesome Pav Bhaji.

Girgaon Food – What to eat in Girgaon Chowpatty and more

Girgaon Chowpatty 2
Girgaon Chowpatty is a famous hangout in Mumbai. But did you know that you get really amazing food in the by-lanes of Girgaon!

I have made 2 videos sharing all the food one must eat in Girgaon Chowpatty and in other parts of Girgaon. Watch them!

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Girgaon Chowpatty

At chowpatty, I recommend trying the Gola, Pav Bhaji, Pani Puri and Chowmein. You can get to know the exact stalls from the video above.

Manohar Pav Bhaji

Girgaon Chowpatty 2

This one didn’t appear in the video for Girgaon food, however it is a very famous place for pav bhaji in Mumbai. Visit Manohar pav bhaji to enjoy their tasty bhaji which is made in either butter or oil, as per your preference. I recommend the one made in butter because it definitely tastes better.

Dabeli Wala

Girgaon Chowpatty 2

This Dabeli wala sits opposite Sicka Nagar society and is so well known in the area. In fact his Dabeli sells like hot cakes and if you don’t go on time then you might not find any! I recommend trying the butter Dabeli here as it’s one of the best one you can find in Mumbai.

Borkar Vada Pav

Girgaon Chowpatty 2

This is located in the Navakal newspaper lane and you can find him every evening, selling really delicious and hot vada pav. The vada pav here has a really tasty filling – pretty different than the regular yellow batata vada filling. Definitely worth a try when you are in the area.

So those were my recommendations for Girgaon Chowpatty and other food places in Girgaon. Do visit these places and let me know your experience.

Sardar Pav Bhaji | Mumbai Street Food

Sardar Pav Bhaji is Mumbai’s oldest pav bhaji.

Afternoon, evening or night, Sardar Pav Bhaji is always packed. Watch this video to find out why.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Sardar Pav Bhaji is around since 1966 and that’s a legacy of overs 50 years. They started as a small food place serving a nutritious meal of mixed vegetables to the nearby mill workers. In those days, there wasn’t too much street food in Mumbai and also very limited options for affordable meals. So Sardar Pav Bhaji provided the much needed ammunition in terms of a filling meal to all the workers who would toil for hours in the sun. The sheer tenure of its operation has made Sardar Pav Bhaji a must visit name in Mumbai.

Another peculiar quality of Sardar Pav Bhaji is the sheer amount of butter they add in the bhaji. A whole chunk of Amul butter in a bhaji can sometimes feel a bit much, but that’s what makes Sardar Pav Bhaji so famous.

Since this place is always crowded, you will have to wait up in queue to get a seat. So in the meantime I recommend watching how this bhaji is made. Lots of vegetables, tasty spices and butter. They don’t add any color or tomato puree. So this bhaji doesn’t look too red but in fact as a more of a brownish color.

One plate of this pav bhaji cost approximately Rs.145 and you get a good portion of bhaji along with big buttered toasted pavs.

Sardar Pav Bhaji definitely needs to be in your list for famous Mumbai street food places. If you have not tried it out then do so. I personally do like their bhaji.

Mumbai Street Food – Must Haves

Mumbai Street Food
I was born and brought up in Mumbai and here are my most favorite Mumbai Street Food picks.

Watch videos of Mumbai Street Food. 

Mumbai is quite famous for its street food. Especially local items like Vada Pav and Pav Bhaji are extremely popular. The roadside sandwich too is quite a crowd puller. Here are my top picks for Mumbai Street Food.

Shree Krishna Batatawada

Mumbai Street Food

This place in Dadar serves the best Batatawada in the city. You get only wada and no pav. And this is best enjoyed with some mirchi on the side.

Raju Sandwich

Mumbai Street Food

This is in Churchgate close to H.R. & K.C. college and has a following of its own. Apart from the classic toast sandwich, they even make the weirdest Pizza and Panini.

Yummies

Mumbai Street Food

This place is located next to Rizvi College in Carter Road. And they are known for their Indianized Chinese food. Their schezwan sauce is so different and delicious.

Narayan Dosa

Mumbai Street Food

One of the best dosa places in the city – definitely try the Mysore Masala Dosa here. This place is located in Grant Road.

Bankelal Sharma Pav Bhaji at Chowpatty

Mumbai Street Food

Located in Girgaon Chowpatty Mumbai, this stall serves some really delicious Pav Bhaji. And super buttery as well.

Shree Krishna Gola at Chowpatty

Mumbai Street Food

You can’t go to Chowpatty and not eat gola! So this is a must have at Girgaon Chowpatty. Kalakhatta is a classic flavor but you can ask them to whip up some weird combination as well.

Sai Samarth Dosa Vile Parle

Mumbai Street Food

This is in the Vile Parle Khau Galli in Bajaj road and you should try the Jini Dosa here. Pretty interesting.

So those were few of my picks for Mumbai Street Food. If you want more street food options and places then leave that in the comments below and I’ll probably make a part 2 for this.

PAV-O-LICIOUS Review

PAVOLICIOUS
Craving some deliciously stuffed Pavs? Try PAVOLICIOUS!

PAVOLICIOUS offers vegetarian and non-vegetarian fillings inside Pav – a traditional Indian bun. They offer just this, and in my opinion do a really good job.

If you’re vegetarian, then here’s what you should try from PAVOLICIOUS.

Paneer Tikka Pav

PAVOLICIOUS

A deliciously marinated paneer tikka, inside a fresh, soft Pav. In spite of being a tad bit spicy, I enjoyed this.

PAVOLICIOUS

Aloo Achari Pav

PAVOLICIOUS

The flavor of tandoori aloo and onion in a Pav can be anything but ordinary.

PAVOLICIOUS

Nutella Pav

PAVOLICIOUS

Need I say more! Nutella and soft Pav is such a delightful combination.

PAVOLICIOUS

PAVOLICIOUS is a good option if you are looking for a quick, yet filling meal. Each portion serves about 2 pieces of huge pavs and they are also very generous with their stuffing quantity. The PAV isn’t toasted and this is a good judgement area for the freshness of the Pav. Also I feel toasting it would kill the experience. they currently deliver in and around areas of Worli.

I highly recommend trying out PAVOLICIOUS.

I hope this review was helpful. Stay tuned for my next post.

Food of Connaught Place

Food of Connaught place
While travelling, I had a halt for a few hours in Delhi. I decided to try out the food of Connaught Place in that time.

As I was deciding the places I wanted to visit for my food of Connaught Place trail, I thought of sticking to some old school ones that I wouldn’t go wrong with. Connaught Place is definitely one happening area where there are so many eateries and choosing just 3 was such a task.

The 3 places I visited were Haldiram’s, Gupta Paan and Nirula’s. And I can happily say that all three were a delightful experience.

You can watch a whole video from my visit to all of these places here.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

Haldiram’s

I decided to visit Haldiram’s because I love chaat and what better place to eat Dahi Wada and Gol Gappa! I loved how organized this place is – specific counters for payment, and dedicated item based counters as well. The place was packed and how! And while looking around I noticed that people were ordering everything possible – from chaat to Dosa, to Chole.

Haldirams Dahiwada Food of Connaught place

I absolutely enjoyed my Dahi Wada. Topped with the yummiest of masala and chutneys, this is definitely something you should try.

Gupta Paan at Odeon

Gupta Paan at Odeon Food of Connaught place

Want the weirdest paan, shoved down your mouth? Head over here. I however stuck to a basic meetha paan, which was not at all disappointing.

Nirula’s 

Pizza Nirulas Food of Connaught place

This is India’s oldest fast food chain and such a successful one. I had to visit! I tried their meal which included paneer makhani, dal makhani, rice and rotis and I tried their Pizza. And as diverse as these things are, both were so delicious. I also tried their very famous hot chocolate fudge, and you only have to try it to know that the hype is totally worth it.

Paneer Makhani at Nirulas Food of Connaught place

Hot Chocolate Fudge at Nirulas Food of Connaught place

So that was it from my visit to Connaught Place, Delhi. Definitely let me know in the comments below about your most memorable meal on a trip.

Top 5 Nainital Restaurants serving Vegetarian Food

Nainital Restaurants
I recently spent a couple of days in the beautiful hills of Nainital and obviously gorged on some good food too. So here my TOP 5 Nainital Restaurants that serve some good vegetarian food as well.

You can check out a video of my Nainital Food Diary here. It includes all of my recommended Nainital Restaurants as well as some street food that I had there.

Subscribe to my Youtube channel here

If you are a vegetarian, then you should definitely visit Giannis Pure Veg Restaurant in Nainital. This one was one of the first ones I visited while I was there and enjoyed a scrumptious meal here.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

I started with the Tomato Soup which felt really warm and comforting in the cool weather.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

What I recommend eating here is their set meal style Thali. It’s quite a decent quantity and could even be shared between 2 people, with probably an addition of extra roti.The Thali comes with naan, rice, dal, two different types of subzi, raita, papad and Gulab Jamun for sweet dish.

Nainital Restaurants Giannis Pure Veg

Sakley’s – The Mountain Cafe is another place I recommend. This isn’t a pure vegetarian place, but I did find a worthwhile veggie pizza here, albeit homestyle.

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

And if you are fine eating dessert with egg, then I highly recommend trying out something from their sweet selection. They have a wide range of pastries, eclairs, puffs and more. I tried their Chocolate Truffle and their Chocolate Eclair and both were really fantastic. Fresh and yum!

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

This place is really cute and cozy and has a very Swiss Cafe vibe to it. You could even come here and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Nainital Restaurants Sakleys

Another pure vegetarian gem in Nainital is Chandni Chowk Restaurant. This one is themed around the original Chandni Chowk in Delhi and serves all kinds of chaat, delicious appetizers and of course piping hot Jalebi.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni chowk

I tried their special Paneer subzi which was quite delicious.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni Chowk

What stood out for me was their Jalebi and Masala Milk. One of the best jalebis I have ever had, these were an absolute indulgence.

Nainital Restaurants Chandni Chowk

Nainital Restaurants Chandni Chowk

If you want a good ‘lunch with a lake view’ then Zooby’s Kitchen totally provides that. This isn’t pure vegetarian, but does serve good vegetarian food. I tried their Aloo Mutter, Biryani and Stuffed Paratha and was honestly quite happy with the food and the service.

Nainital Restaurants Zoobys Kitchen

And as in this post, this was my last meal in Nainital. I visited Machan on my final day and indulged in some Indian-style Chinese food and loved it. I tried a pretty basic combination of Fried Rice and Manchurian and absolutely enjoyed it. Their portions are huge and probably sufficient for a minimum of 3 people.

Nainital Restaurants Machan

So those were a few recommendations of Nainital Restaurants from my visit here. Hope you found this post helpful.

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for my next post. XOXO!

Raju Chinese – Mumbai Street Chinese

Raju chinese
If you’ve studied in H.R. or Jai Hind College, you know the craze for Raju Chinese is real.

Want to know what I ate on my last visit to Raju Chinese? Watch this!

Subscribe to my YouTube here

So that was Raju Chinese. Definitely visit the place if you haven’t already!

And here are my recommendations on what you should be eating here:

Dry Manchurian

Raju chinese

I am not the biggest fan of just dry manchurian, but the ones at Raju Chinese are a sure exception. Amazing flavor and a prominent taste of ginger and garlic. I can just eat these all by themselves!

Schezwan Rice

Raju chinese

Spicy Schezwan Rice served with a little Manchurian Gravy, some schezwan sauce and fried noodles.

Chilli Cheese Roll

Raju chinese

Delicious sauce, warm toasted bread and cheese – all in a roll! Definitely recommend this.

Raju chinese

You could eat anything from their menu, and I guarantee that it will be fresh and tasty. This place has maintained the same level of taste since I first started eating from here in 2004. At that time, Raju Chinese was located inside H.R. College in Churchgate and was also known as H.R. Chinese. My friends and I would specially go over to H.R. just to grab some of this delicious stuff! And the things we had to do to get inside the college (because we weren’t students of H.R.) would all feel worth it, once we had the first bite of some of this stuff. Now the place has moved pretty close to Marine Lines and Nirmala Niketan College. It’s all vegetarian and arguably one of the best street Chinese food in Mumbai.

Raju chinese

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and watching the video. Do visit Raju Chinese and let me know how you liked it.

I would love to stay in touch. So do hit me up on my social media.
