Your Guide for Street Food at Matunga,Mumbai

Posted on Leave a comment

Street food is something which appeals to all as it’s tasty and it is absolutely cheap.

Let’s get to business and coming straight down to my detailed list (P.S not doing South Indian food as that deserves another blog)

The Ruia College / Podar Area :

1. Mamaji (gps/ Swiggy / Zomato / Uber eats) Paytm Accepted (from 11am onwards)

Their sandwiches are to die for. Mamaji special filled with cheese and paneer is wow. Even their frankie is great for Rs20. Also what is fab is their panini. It is love.

Only on weekdays : 1. Saee Juice : (Have their superb fresh lime juice for 20₹ or cold coffee for ₹50)

Location for below (2,3) : Footpath Opposite Podar College, Matunga East 400019

2. Subhash Sandwich : Podar’s favorite : Eat some yummy sandwiches (11am onwards)

3. Pasta Centre : It’s like the WTC zone filled with cheese. (Afternoon/ evening)

4. Momos (Location : Ghanshyam Sports) : Food Van (5pm onwards) He has amazing momos. Oh god ! And that red chutney is fab.

5. Snow point : It has fab Indian Chinese food. The manchurian is fab. What I really love is the crazy cold drinks available including energee and all your ice creams too.

Station Side (Location : Chheda Dry Fruits, Matunga)

1. Gupta Chat Centre : Featured in Bombay times as the Bhel King, I love his bhel, sev Puri and also pav Bhaji. Sev Puri for ₹40

2. Softy Icecream : Rama Nayak Udupi (besides Gupta / Station ) : Have a chocolate softy for Rs20

3. Pankaj Pani Puri (Besides Chheda) : They have grilled sandwich which is good too but expensive. Their Pani Puri is fab though for ₹30

4. Paan : If you like paan, then he makes the most amazing meetha paan (besides Chheda) : 12pm onwards

5. Walk further and put (West View Shop , Matunga on the maps) : There is fabulous roll guy. His name is Sameer. (5pm onwards on weekends and weekdays 7pm onwards) Have the paneer babycorn mushroom roll for 80₹.

6. Who likes Mukhwaas ? There is a superb guy who sits with a box near west view and you have to have that.

7. Pankaj Soda and Gola : Are you a fan of Soda? Then this one is for you. Also they use bisleri water so it’s safe.

8. There is a sandwich guy again and his masala aloo sandwich is really amazing. (again west view shop as location : 4pm onwards)

9. Matunga Dabeli : (put this and you will find on gps) and have the butter Dabeli Rs 20 or cheese garlic pav (spicy) : 1.30 pm onwards . It’s also on Swiggy and Uber eats.

King Circle Area :

King circle is thriving with franchises to naturals , 99 pancakes, Theo broma and fries.

Listing down the below (Open after 7.30-8 pm only)

1. Pav Bhaji (Outside Theobroma matunga) I like him more than the chatai pav Bhaji . Rs 100. Have the fabulous biryani / pulav too.

2. Khichya Papad (Put Garden fresh as location) . Have the fabulous cheese masala papad and you will love it for ₹70.

3. Kulfi : there is kulfi guy right again outside garden fresh and makes fabulous stuff.

4. Chattai Pav Bhaji

5. Shree Krishna Frankie : Another favorite amongst college goers is this orange noodle potato frankie for ₹20

6. Rahuls Roll (Available on Swiggy , and gps) : from noon onwards : The Indian pizza is great and so is the Maggi.

7. Another Amazing Kulfi Rabdi with full sev is near Amar Petrol Pump, Matunga . It’s a little aarey shop.

Other side of the matunga station :

1. Vada Pav : He is very famous for the Vada Pav. Outside Shree sunders.

2. Late night : 9.30-11pm Anna Coffee

Put location : Giri Stores.

You will see too many people having nice cycle coffee, idli and chilling.

3. Opposite Giri Stores , you will see Mewad Truck. Again that has fab falooda for the price they offer.

Street Food hogging at SOBO !

Posted on Leave a comment


“Street Food is that kind of food which tickles taste buds and makes your mouth water. I would term it value for money. ”

So I tried the very famous chowpatty beach.
Believe it or not, I have not actually had eaten there in 20 years!


1. Chowpatty beach
We made our way through the beach. Let me be straight out, it’s far away from the dreamy Bombay beach. There was crowd at every foot step with barely any place.


We made our way to the little food court and could see every stall guy requesting to buy from them . We ended up having a gola. Also now they have variations to the gola. Like malai hola .
And oh even they have upgraded with mason jars 😋!

Next up, we made our way to the popcorn at the beach. The crowd was hustling so we could not really enjoy


2. Sukh Sagar
Ok still not many know, but there are 2 of these
One for fast food
One for juices and creams
I love this place. You won’t get a seat or something. The PAV BHAJI is amazing !


And yes STRAWBERRY CREAM is better than bachelors.
I know a lot of loyal bachelors might just hate me . But TBH (to be honest), I find Bachelors overpriced and overrated to another level.


3. Badshah Falooda.
Do I even need to say more?
Have the royal falooda there

4. Kulfi at chowpatty
This uncle has his little shop since I was a kid. So yes.


I haven’t taken pictures of the below (as you just enjoy Street food) but let me still list down my favourites
5. K Rustom icecreams
6. Kebabs at ayubs
7. Aarey Energee near NCPA
8. Filter coffee with chana Chor garam at marine drive
9. Rajus outside HR college (he makes amazing roadside Desi Chinese)
10. The Js

I know I have missed out many from SOBO. But these are my top 10 picks !
Also if you all have any additions
Let us know in the comments section below !

Happy hogging!

Trupti , Farsan Sweets Taken Higher

Posted on Leave a comment

Trupti is your one spot high end dining for street food atleast and for Gujarati lovers, this is a treat.

I do find it expensive as compared to the Farsan shop but the food is great

Fast Food, Farsan & Gujarati

We tried :

1. Baked wada Pav : Anything about vada Pav is good. It is just the feeling of being Mumbaikar that comes with it.

2. Masala Pav : I don’t even know how to describe this or elaborate as it needs no explanation. What determines the dish is the sauce and it was good

3. Panner dhokla: Twist to the normal dhokla , found it great and really soft
4. Lacha tokti : Again good.
5. Mysore dosa : I am very loyal to authentic South Indian places in Matunga but liked this one .

Overall the sweets are amazing. Do try the rasmalai there. Also, I would term this place as hygienic comfort food to feast on !
