As much as we all love our city of dreams, we do miss munching on street momos and enjoying a cool glass of lassi from time to time. So, to help you with this strong food nostalgia and to satiate your Dilli street food cravings, we bring to you the best Delhi style street food in Mumbai.
Aloo Tikki, Dahi Bhalle & Lassi: 5 Places In Mumbai To Have Tasty Dilli-Style Street Food
Chole Bhature & Kulche From Chawla’s Fast Food, Sion
Chawla’s Fast Food in Sion Koliwada is just one of the many great Punjabi eateries on the Guru Tegh Bahadur (GTB) Road, and we recommend you head there for the mouth-watering chhole kulche and bhature. You’ll find everything from plain naans to dal makhani being doled out here. The chhole kulche usually aren’t served past 3pm, so be careful of the time that you head there.
Shell Out: A plate of hot chhole bhature will cost you INR 40 and chhole kulche start from INR 50.
Chaat (Aloo Tikki, Papdi Chaat & Dahi Bhalla) From Bikanervala, Vashi
The delicious snack and sweet joint that haunts almost every corner of Delhi, Punjab and other parts of North Indian is located in Vashi. They have different sections dedicated to dry snacks sold over the counter such as packets of bhujiya, dal-moth, moong dal and Bengali sweets made of both ghee and milk, ladoos, pethas, son papdi, kaju katli and more. The most exciting bit is definitely the chaat dishes you get there like gol gappa, aloo tikki, pao bhaji, dahi bhalla etc. Then there’s different types of samosa, kachoris, patties, kulche to devour as well.
Shell Out: A plate of delicious dahi bhalla will cost you INR 100
Lassi From VIG Refreshment, Chembur
This small eatery in Chembur doles out the most delicious North Indian food and their creamy lassi definitely hits it out of the park. VIG serves what tastes like yummy home good with typical Punjabi flavours. Go here to get some good kulchas, chole puri/bhature, and have their lassi which is quite thick and creamy.
Shell Out: Everything here is reasonably priced and you can have a wholesome meal for just INR 150 (and you won’t feel hungry after that for a while)
Dev's Momo Hut, Worli
We tried out the momos at this small joint in Worli and fell in love with them (extra marks for those tasty sauces). This momo stall opens at 7pm and is ready to shut shop by 9pm because the lip-smacking veg and non-veg momos here get over that fast. That’s right. These piping hot, deliciously made momos are served with schezwan sauce and an egg white sauce. We feel these are a must-try.
Shell Out: INR 70 for paneer momos, INR 90 for non veg momos
Samose Chole From Guru Kripa, Sion
Though it’s now a 41-year-old eatery, the owner of Guru Kripa would formerly sell the samosas and chole on a handcart. Go here and order crunchy, spicy, potato-filled triangles. One bite of these tasty samosas and you will know you haven’t had a better one anywhere in Mumbai. Team them with freshly made chole at this Sindhi joint, and the combination, for INR 37, is sure to blow your mind.

We also love the butter chicken paranthas by Oye Kiddan. The smoky flavour is really what sets them apart. The chicken is marinated for 24 hours, then roasted on the tandoor, and then cooked completely the North Indian way.
