This is theĀ guide to my favourite cheap eats in Bandra, all under INR 100, something for the food-lovers on a budget to rejoice about. With everything from Goan sausage to dahi chaat, this list has kept me going till many-a payday.

Schezwan Fried Rice from Yummies


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


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

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


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

Price: INR 70
