Sharma Chaat Bhandar on V. M. Road has been around for decades. Initially it was one of those good old street side stalls selling chaat on a cart, but it has relocated to a shop inside the shopping complex. The ragda pattice is undoubtedly one of the best ever.
Two very famous sandwich joints are The Lucky Sandwich stall at Bajaj Road, near Vile Parle station, and Dhiraj Opp. Bhaidas Hall. Lucky is known to have a wide variety of delicious sandwiches, from the chili paneer to the assorted grilled sandwiches, but nothing beats the regular sada sandwich. Dhiraj gets a special mention here because of the fantastic mayonnaise cheese grilled sandwich. Chopped vegetables in loads of mayonnaise, some grated cheese, grilled to perfection, and served with a spicy dhania-pudina-mirchi chutney.
The sudden rise in the number of dosa stalls in the area just shows how popular the various street-side dosas have become. The first such stall is at Bajaj Road and has over 70 varieties of dosas to offer, from the jini to the cheese pav bhaji to the pasta dosa and the Manchurian dosa. At any time of the day, be assured that your dosa will take a good 10-15 minutes to arrive. On holidays and weekends, the wait time can be up to an hour.
No mention of street food in Mumbai is complete without special attention paid to the city’s favorite, the sinfully delicious vada pav!

Loaded with butter, spicy green chutney, and dry garlic chutney, this sure isn’t for the faint of heart, but what’s life without some spice?
There are also a lot of kulfi and gola stalls across the area that sell not only the traditional kala khatta-kachhi kairi gola and malai kulfi but also have vast fusion menus. Stuff like the malai gola and kulfi falooda on a plate with toppings of your choice are sure to spoil you rotten.
