What Makes It Awesome

Good food can solve the gravest problems of life. We know you're nodding your head in agreement as you read this. While we're talking food, let's tell you about the newest addition to the food truck scene in aamchi Mumbai. There's a black little truck, parked near Oshiwara's Mega Mall, that whips up delish sandwiches and other drool-worthy delights that we've set our eyes upon. Known as A Hot Tin Roof, this one slays it with its menu. 

Started by Lance Lewis and Mrinmai Parab, A Hot Tin Roof specializes in sandwiches, rolls, and something known as the 'sandos'- which is a nickname given to sandwiches by the Japanese. Variants like Falafel, Bombay, and the Italian grilled cheese sandwich give life to your taste buds (no really, we never exaggerate). Then there's also the show-stealer - a heavenly American grilled cheese sandwich, with a blend of four different types of cheese, caramelized onions, pickles, and a spicy  cinnamon tomato jam (we heart it) Priced at INR 349, it truly is worth your penny. Meat lovers, you've got to call for the Chicken Katsu Sando- a Panko fried chicken in Tonkatsu sauce and cabbage slaw. Katsu Sandos are basically your Japanese pork cutlet sandwiches that (needless to say) are a delicacy back there. The vegetarian variant has mushrooms and Emmental (a type of hard Swiss cheese) Patty in Tonkatsu sauce.

Lover of shrimps? Then you've got to bite into the Shrimp po'Boy sandwich- fried shrimps in Louisiana-style seasoning, pickles, and the spicy Naagin Hot Sauce. The chicken Doner kebabs and the Meatball subs do justice to their names and the price we pay too. To end your gastronomical journey on a sweet note, call for the S'mores sandwich. This has your chocolate ganache and toasted marshmallows sandwiched between two slices of toasted bread. Superhit combination, we'd say.

We also love how everything's super fresh here, and how all the sauces like the Marinara, harissa, and green tahini, are homemade. The food truck maintains hygiene and takes all the requisite precautions too. We feel this hidden gem can be your new adda when meeting friends. Or maybe if you and your partner like to keep things lowkey but special, have a sandwich date at A Hot Tin Roof. You won't regret it! 


The food truck remains closed on Mondays.
