You wouldn’t expect to find some of Mumbai’s best kebabs among car and bike scraps, industrial shops and more, but that’s the reality of Kurla, one of the eastern side’s most notorious suburbs. Dominated by the Sunni Muslim community, the area is full of joints serving Mughlai cuisine. Vada pav will be hard to find, but kebabs are decorating every store front. Starting with Hotel Naaz at the Vidyavihar end, and ending with Lucknowee Zaika at the Kurla Station end, this section has eight to ten amazing eateries which run to full houses every day.
Don’t wait for Ramzan to explore this gastro underbelly of Mumbai. A good line to open with? “Bhai, ek chicken sanju baba, shami kebab plate, aur half nihari aur roti lana.“
