Ten-Second Takeaway

Popular Sandwiches is the eatery that has been taking care of the breakfast needs of the working population of Lower Parel with its delicious, cheesy sandwiches.

Chow Down

The sandwiches take the cake for us. An all-veg establishment, they have breakfast fixes {or evening snacks} like butter toast, butter jam toast,cheese-laden sandwiches like mushroom cheese grilled, tomato cheese garlic and salad sandwich with mayo. Our heart {and taste buds} go out to the corn paneer cheese sandwich which literally feels like an explosion of paneer and corn goodness. That paneer with that chutney? Score.

The thing with Popular is that once you familiarise yourself with the menu, you will find some hidden gems as well as things to avoid. Like the pizza sandwich – a big no for us. We’d rather have pizza inside a pizza. Also, try their garlic breads and try to have them as soon as they’re delivered to avoid having bread that feels like cardboard when you bite in {sorry for the mental image}.

Hate stepping out to the juice-wala in the heat/on account of desk job laziness? Let Popular take care of your hydration. They deliver freshly-squeezed juices like mara-mari {pineapple + sweet lime}, Ganga-Jamuna {orange + sweet lime}, cocktail and more to your office reception. Also, if you’ve always questioned the presence of added sugar in juices, warn them while ordering.

Winning For

Its quick delivery service in Lower Parel and its love for our daily breakfast budget. Why spend INR 250 on a fruit salad when you can self-induce food coma under INR 150 from Popular? They are on Swiggy which covers a delivery area of 7km.

The place is a blessing for those who end up missing breakfast in the morning which results in crankiness {there,there}. Also a great option if you want to opt for a slightly healthy option instead of a dahi-puri from the chaat wala.
