Bombay, now known as Mumbai, is popular for the variety of street food that it offers. There is something out there for everybody. You fined a lot of streets lined with little stalls selling a wide range of yummy stuff. This street food is hard to resist and the aromas that you are treated to, while just passing by these stalls, is enough to draw you to them for a quick bite. On offer is a host of South Indian treats, idlis, dosas, wadas, uttapams to name a few. You then have some of the local treats like the batata wada and the sabudana wada. You also have a whole selection of chaat, which originates from the North – North East India, and it includes bhel puri, sev puri, pani puri etc. These are just to name a few.
