The tour titled ‘Khau Gully’, literally translated to the food lane, is an ode to the street food of Mumbai. If you are in the mood to tantalize your taste buds and find the perfect excuse to ditch that diet – fellow foodie, don’t look further!

This tour takes you the history of various communities and their kitchens to see how they have impacted the cuisine of Mumbai, especially it’s street food. Being a multicultural city, Mumbai has taken to its bosom dishes from other states, but also unselfishly given the world India’s favorite street food – the Pav Bhaji. The story of the dish dates back to the mid-1950s. An enterprising restaurateur saw an opportunity when he observed hungry textile workers step out at ungodly hours of the morning. The restaurateur took last night’s leftover veggies and mashed them along with quintessential Indian spices to create a perfect tangy and spicy curry, which was strictly accompanied by the Portuguese pav. These were sold on the streets to workers, whose odd working hours prompted a street food revolution. This dish with humble origins, has crossed state borders and has become the most beloved street food of India.

This storytelling and tasting tour will take you to the colorful stalls of Girgaon Chowpatty, Make you sip tea in a hundred-year-old Irani Café, eat at Mumbai’s oldest restaurant, drink a Persian drink and devour Mumbai’s ubiquitous Vada Pav, among other things. We promise you will get your fun fill – In food and its history.
