Best Of Mumbai Street Food Sorted In Bengaluru
What Makes It Awesome?
Mumbai Xpress is quite petite, yet so comforting both in terms of the ambience and the food they provide. It's nice and light, not high on spices, yet so delicious. You don't feel heavy after you eat here, and it's all so pocket-friendly. They have a small TV attached where you can see all the games going on. Coming to all the items that I tried, the following section gives a brief description of the same: For drinks I tried: Sweet Lassi (8.5/10) - This is exactly how my mom makes at home, with some whole cardamoms. It just refreshes you to an altogether different level. They don't go all out on the sugar but was perfectly sweet for me, however, it could have been slightly colder. Masala Kullad Chai (9/10) - A great cup of chai, served in kullad, perfectly hot. It's so comforting and delicious, that I can visit this place just for this tea. Served at INR 25/-, it is worth every rupee that you pay. For food I tried: Gangtok Chilli Garlic Fried Rice (8.5/10) - Quite tasty, nothing different from what you'd get elsewhere apart from the subdued use of soya sauce here. However, the quantity is so good, that it would easily suffice 2 people. Ghatkopar Ka Schezwan Vada Pav (8.5/10) - This is one of the better Vada Pavs that I've had in Bangalore. Loved how the aloo bonda inside was fried and was nice and flavourful inside. Most importantly, I loved the spicy Schezwan sauce that lined the pav, which had a good amount of garlic in it, making it a great snack overall! Cheese Chowpatty Pav Bhaji (9/10) - Loaded with the liquid cheese, this was one indulgent treat. The pavs were nice and soft, and well buttered. The bhaji seemed nice, but with the cheese, it was too delicious. This is a must try for me. Dahi Papri Chaat (8/10) - This was good, but could have been much better. The imli or tamarid chutney was used less, as a result, the sweetness that you usually have in a papri chaat was lacking. Colaba (9/10) - Another great part of their menu, this is actually a cross between a pizza and a sandwich. They use a soft subway sandwich type bread and fill it with a mix of veggies. They add cheese on the top of this and bake. It's something that you just need to try and experience to know what I am talking about. Overall, a place lying in the shadow as of now, waiting to be explored fully.
