I am almost confident if Anthony Bourdin was suppose to pass thru Bombay he won't miss the following street side asli (real) Bombay (mumbai) city food experience ever!

1) Two Iconic 'Vadapav' places (Vegetarian option only):

1 a) The small street side joint 1. Behind HR/KC college lane, Chruchgate, Mumbai. Extremely delicious Vadapav, Kanda Bhajiya's and more...

2 b)Outside Kirti college, Dadar (W). When driving from haji ali towards north it's a small by lane on the left side of the road, landmark is 'Kirti College' They have a specialized chutney and also a unique way of adding some strong Ginger in their Vadapav it's their signature preparation.

2) Bade Miyan: The most iconic roadside place ever, buzzing with hudnreds of cars and people especially late night, post mid-night on weekends. Open till 3 am!
They are super famous for their combination of delicious Veg and Non-Veg Kebabs, Chicken and Paneer(Cottage cheese) Rolls, Baida Roti (A unique Indian Roti/Bread stuffed with Egg and other options), Egg Burji(Indian Masala scrambled Eggs)
