The Tour titled ‘Khau Gully’ which literally translates to the food lane is an ode to the street food in Mumbai, If you are in the mood to tantalize your taste buds or find your excuse to ditch that diet – fellow foodie, you are at the right place! Thousands come from far and wide to Mumbai in search of love, acceptance, money, and fame and leave a major imprint on its culture – especially through food.
Not only has Mumbai taken to its bosom recipes from other states, but also invented dishes of its own. The Pav Bhaji is one such example. The leftover vegetables from the previous night were used by enterprising restaurateurs, to create a vegetable mash or Bhaji. These were sold on the streets to hungry cotton traders, whose odd working hours prompted a street food revolution in the city. This particular dish was accompanied with the Portuguese bread called Pav. This dish with humble origins has crossed state borders over the years and has become the most beloved street food of the nation. Moreover, you will also have the city’s MVP: Mumbai’s Vada Paav. A dish that is Mumbai’s biggest contribution to India’s gastronomy. This dish has it all: carbs, potatoes, bread, migration, politics, and stories of cultural assimilation. Everyone has a favourite, we’ll take you to ours.
