1. Vada Pav – One of the most popular Mumbai street foods is vada pav, a spiced mashed potato patty that’s deep fried and stuffed into a bun along with chutney. Although it sounds simple and it is, it’s one of the greatest vegetarian burgers you’ll likely ever eat. Also, when you eat vada pav, don’t miss eating some fried chili’s to go with it.

2. Bhelpuri – Another of the of the foods that’s iconic in Mumbai is bhelpuri, a snack made from puffed rice, mixed with chutney, and onions and tomatoes. It’s an Indian street food in Mumbai that’s especially common at beaches, and it makes a fantastic beach food. I tried the bhelpuri in this video at Juhu Beach.

3. Sev Puri – This is one of my personal favorite Indian street food chaats, a combination of little crispy disc chips topped with mashed potatoes, onions, and a variety of delicious chutneys, and a handful of sev, which are the all the little crispy things on top. When you take a bit of sev puri, the entire little disc will explode with delicious flavors, and it’s all about that chutney!

4. Pav Bhaji – Originally made from leftover vegetables that were mashed up, mixed with some butter and spices, and served with bread to mop it all up, pav bhaji is pretty much exactly that today, and it’s an Indian street food known for being popular in Mumbai. At some of the famous pav bhaji stalls, the mixture of potatoes and tomatoes is mashed up on a big hot plate, mixed with spices and butter, and then served with buttered fluffy buns.

5. Kebabs and Rolls – For any meat lovers, kebabs and rolls are one of the best things to eat in Mumbai. I especially enjoyed the bhuna roll in Mumbai, a wonderfully flavorful chicken curry packed into a thin rumali roti.

6. Chai – It’s not a food, but it is one of the joys of being in India, and that is drinking cups of hot chai on the side of the street. You don’t want to miss it when you’re in Mumbai.

7. Pani Puri – Popular as a street food snack across India, pani puri is the combination of little puris (hollow sphere chips) filled with potatoes and chickpeas, and then filled with chutney and flavored water. Each bite is a burst of incredible flavor and water.

8. Bombay Duck Fry – Although it’s commonly eaten at indoor restaurant, because of it’s importance in Mumbai, and since it’s served at local restaurants, I had to include it on this list of Mumbai food. Known at Bombay duck or bombil, it’s actually a type of lizardfish which is often deep fried and served with rice and side curries. It’s something you should try when you’re in Mumbai.

9. Mumbai Sandwich (Bombay Sandwich) – You don’t usually think of sandwiches when you think of Indian street food, but in Mumbai, the sandwich is one of the most popular roadside snacks. Often times pure vegetarian, a combination of masala potatoes, tomatoes, onions, beetroot, cheese, and chutney is pressed between bread, and grilled over fired. The result is a fascinating street sandwich you’ll never forget.

10. Dosa – Although from South India, Mumbai is a hub of Indian food, and you’ll find dosas all over Mumbai as well. The classic traditional version is a masala dosa, but there are also fusion types of dosas, including the paneer tikka dosa, which is absolutely magical.
