South Mumbai can be an expensive part of the city, especially when it comes to eating out. However, with our special best eats under INR 100 series, we’ll be bring out area-specific hidden gems to get a hearty meal for as less as yes, INR 100. Check out our curated finds in South Mumbai.

Olympia Coffee House

09072016-OlympiaHouse01-APThe iconic coffee house directly opposite to another iconic cafe, Leopold, is simply a marvel for cheap Parsi food. Their masala keema is spicy and flavourful. If you’re going for the full experience, top it off with coffee like we did.

Price: INR 70 for mutton fry masala

Sarvi

09072016-Sarvi-Brain04-APA treat for the hardcore non-vegetarians, Sarvi was an obvious choice for this list. Hot seekh kebabs, paaya, mutton are all mostly under INR 100, making this place a treat for our pocket and stomach.

Price: INR 24 for the Irani seekh kebab, INR 90 for the chicken masala

Khao Galli

09072016-KhaoGalli03-APOne of the famous eating streets in Mumbai, the Khao Galli in Fort consists of a long line of shops for food-lovers to gorge on some not-so-healthy but tasty street food. We love the pani puri and bhel, which is the best in the neighbourhood.

Where: Behind Bombay Stock Exchange

Price: INR 25 for the pani puri, INR 30 for the bhel

Modern Juice Centre

09072016-ModernJuiceShawarma07-APWe recommend a quick stop by for the chicken shawarma; it’s light and filling. Heads up, we also had their masala milk {rich with dry fruits}, and give it two thumbs up.

Price: INR 80 for the chicken shawarma

Pancham Puriwala

09072016-PanchamPuriwala09-CholeBatura-APThis tiny vegetarian place near CST is famous for its pocket-friendly menu, but even more so for the chhole puri. Glad to get this glimpse of Punjab in Mumbai, we topped our meal off with a small glass of lassi. Next time we’re going to try their deluxe thali which is priced at INR 100.

Price: INR 50 for the chhole bhature, INR 30 for a small lassi

Cannon Pav Bhaji

09072016-Cannon10-CheesePavBhaji-APWe had the classic cheese pav bhaji {accompanied by dollops of Amul butter} at this street joint, and we were happy and satisfied people. It’s always super crowded, but we managed to get our food in under five minutes.

Price: INR 75 for the cheese pav bhaji, INR 95 for the Amul pav bhaji

Yazdani Bakery

09072016-YazdaniBakery08-APOne of the oldest Iranian bakeries in the city, Yasdani is unmissable. From freshly baked bread, with herbs and garlic, to their mawa cake {we loved it}, or their brun maska, we think it’s a Mumbai legend.

Price: INR 25 for the mawa cake
