Meandering through the city in scorching heat, wanting to make people think I am some intrepid traveller trying to discover Mumbai’s new side. People in Mumbai are really friendly and happy to help, as I asked around in search of a good place to eat. After lunch, one thing I was not willing to miss was a stroll on the beach. Kuldip, my driver aka a local Mumbai guide took me to Girgaum Chowpatty. He was also kind enough to show me a way to subway and other food joints just in case. Coming from a place where one seldom gets to witness fresh lakes, beachscapes are my idea of heaven. This place has one of the most popular beaches in the city adjoining Marine drive. It was quite a family place with children playing Frisbee and building sand castles. As for myself, I enjoyed the warm golden sand and water waves washing my feet every few minutes. This beach is also famous for water activities like, Para sailing, Jet skiing, cruise, speedboats etc.
When it comes to street foods, this is the place to be! From pani puri, vada pav, bhujia, all the fried and delicious snacks are made at Chowpatty. The authentic taste combined with the laid back environment is a great combination found at Chowpatty. Youngsters lay sprawled on their mats, munching on their favorite goodies. It's finger lickin' good!
