    Ashok Vada Pav

    Prabhadevi, Mumbai

    Ashok vada pav in Dadar is a place that every Mumbaikar swears by. Set aside the hype, Ashok truly does make a delicious snack, having created another version to it too, fondly called the choora pav where he mixes the choora with chutney and stuffs it in the pav. He has been serving this vada-pav for over two decades, and it has been consistently tasting the same. An undisputed winner.

    Shankar Vada Pav, Bandra West

    Shankar Vada Pav was started back in 1975, when Shankar would initially sell his fare from a hand cart until he started selling and earning enough to buy a shop. Through time, while the people have changed, Shankar Vada Pav still remains the popular, inexpensive stall that sells the same three items as it did back when it started. You get vada pav for INR 12 or INR 15, moong daal bhajias for either INR 15 or INR 30, and mirchi bhajias for INR 12 {with pav}. Shankar Vada Pav has audaciously stuck to its roots, despite fancier places around, and still does well for itself. The stall is now handled by Vinayak, Shankar’s son.

    Anand Stall, Vile Parle

    Anand Stall

    Vile Parle West, Mumbai
    The stretch outside NM/Mithibai College is a Golden Stretch of sorts for street food. It's quite obvious that every thela in this line is uber popular. We're sure you've seen this place abuzz any time of day, while you're driving by. Anand Vada Pav is an irremovable fixture here. They've got normal vada pav alright, but they've also got Schezwan Vada Pav, Kanda Vada Pao, and Cheese Vada Pao. Basically, head here for the OG, and the permutations, both.

    Gajanan Vada Pav, Thane

    Gajanan Vada Pav

    Thane Area, Mumbai

    Gajanan's famous for the besan chutney they give you with their vada pav. While the vada pav itself is spectacular, the chutney ameliorates and elevates the experience that it is... Imagine dunking a hot, crispy vada (with the pav of course) into a warm, spicy chutney. Mm hm. That's right.
