Run by two graduate students, Sagar Rupani and Parth Kothari, Munchy Mumbai was created with an aim to be unique in the way it chronicled Mumbai’s food. What sets them apart is the way they promote homemade food — the only professional food blog to do so.

The decision to balance professional and homemade food was tough, but it paid off. Their followers embraced homemade food and started asking for recipes. As passionate food lovers, it is this love that drives them to continue working on the account.

Bakeries such as The Rolling Pin (see above photo) are featured for their innovative delights, like this chocolate pizza topped with marshmallows.
