    Ten-Second Takeaway

    Schezwan Fried Rice from Yummies


    Bandra West, Mumbai

    This fiery, orange-hued Chin-dian speciality is a favourite among college students, thelate-night crowd on Carter Road, and apparently even Salman Khan. And is absolutely worth every penny.

    Price: INR 100 for a half plate

    Lemon Tart at Cafe Andora

    Cafe Andora

    Bandra West, Mumbai

    Not much has changed about this old-school lemon tart over the years – the same crumbly tart base, the same tangy lemon curd, and the same pricing.

    Price: INR 25

    Dahi Puri from Maharashtra Chana Bhandar

    This unassuming farsan shop makes some of the best chaat this side of Bandra. Opt for their dahi puri – humongous puris come topped with heaps of thickened curd, tangy meethi chutney, fried dal and roasted peanuts, making this a meal by itself.

    Price: INR 50

    Chicken Cutlets from Ratan Tata Institute Food Stall

    Forget bhajiyas and chai this monsoon. Curl up by the window with piping hot chicken cutlets – a shredded chicken and potato patty mixture that is comforting and delicious.

    Price: INR 22

    Goan Sausage Bun from Mac Craig

    Mac Craig

    Bandra West, Mumbai

    This fluffy bun comes filled with sausages in an onion-tomato mixture and makes for a yummy yet filling snack.
