As expert snackers, we scan all popular places in Mumbai with a squinted eye to look for the best things to nibble on. We have found Carter Road to be a snackers paradise with everything from momos, ice-cream rolls and waffle sandwiches to good old phuchka to snack on. Here are all the things you must check out on your travails to Carter Road.
Burgers, Mini Pancakes, Waffles & More: Here's Why Carter Road Is A Foodie's Paradise
While we don’t wholeheartedly disagree when people say that ‘momos in Mumbai aren’t the best’, we think Kepchaki is an exception. We love the chicken one for the non-vegetarians and the mushroom-cheese stuffing for the veggies. Share a plateful with your friends when you start your food trail.
Right next to Kepchaki Momos is a stall that has our heart – Oh Fudge. They have over 15 types of chocolate fudge available to have either just on their own, or as a chocolate sandwich, sundae or milkshake. We aren’t fudging around with you.
The J is a potato-lovers heaven with fries, glorious fries in all shapes and sizes. Think of an unusual topping, and the J will have it. Go here for a mini date to share a cone of masala fries or a potato stick.
As ardent admirers of this humble movie snack, we look for popcorn in the most unusual places and are thoroughly surprised when we find it. We love WOW Popcorn’s presence on this stretch of Carter Road eateries, with so many unusual flavours on hold – the lightly buttered, the caramel, the cheese, the onion cream cheese and more. Because even if no one says it, everyone is looking for popcorn.
If you’re in Carter Road for a run and need to hydrate, you probably may have to skip the options we just gave you. Good thing though for Joost, a juice bar with a lot of options.
Don’t forget to check out Lassi Te Parronte, Dr. Bubbles and Carter Blue for more snacking options. None of the above eateries have a proper sit-down space, so in case you want a proper meal, there’s always CCD for coffee & sandwiches, Mezbaan for Lebanese food and Masala Bar for a good ol’ cocktail.
