I’m from Delhi and one of the many commonalities in people from Delhi is the ultimate love for food. Scrumptious, full-flavoured, spicy and aromatic food that won’t even take permission before entering your system and distracting your mind from third world problems and boil it all down to food. As the legacy has it, being a Delhite I’m not allowed to like a bit of Mumbai’s food. And frankly, I really didn’t, at first. I presumed that no place in India can match Chandni Chowk’s chole bhature, Sarvana’s dosa and Big Chill’s pasta. This perception owes its inception to my experience at Leopold café in Colaba which was supposed to be the most famous café in Mumbai. We hopped off to this place thinking that it will be worth every penny, and it so wasn’t. It is a historic place which marks the terrible 26/11 incident and this is the only “famous” factor about it. I was comparing every inch and corner of this little café with that of Delhi’s incredible eateries.
Nevertheless, I went back to my cousin’s place wherein she agreed to go on a food hunt with me the very next day and help me explore the unexplored. I won’t call these places under-rated but they sure are not visited that often by Mumbaikars. If such eateries resided anywhere in Delhi, they’d be a huge hit! So guys show some love and visit these amazing food joints if you’re already in Mumbai or planning a trip to this beautiful city.
