Mumbai is packed with good food. From five-star hotel dining rooms to Udipi restaurants to small-time roadside hawkers, cuisine from all over India and around the world is readily available. Recent years have seen a culinary renaissance in Mumbai with both famous and unknown chefs dishing out exciting fusion food to appease a vigorous “foodie” movement.
Food from all over India is well represented in Mumbai—thalis, Parsi dhansak, Udupi, Bengali chorchori, dosas, kebabs and shawarmas. You can also eat Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, and Italian fare, sometimes with an Indian touch! Burgers and pizzas are never out of reach and big chains make sure they serve vegetarian dishes to appeal to all Indian tastes and sensibilities.
Street Food: It’s all you can eat on the street. Mumbai’s street food—vada pav, chaat, golas and more - will make you wonder why you ever went to a restaurant. Keep up-to-date with what's new in food with the city's blogazine, MumbaiMag.
Conveniently located in every neighborhood and at train stations, the corner shop and the daily roadside vegetable market are still your best and most convenient places to buy your groceries. For large quantities, Big Bazaar is the best bet, though it needs stamina and sharp elbows to brave the crowds there.
