1. Shawarma: There are many stalls selling shawarma but foodies swear by KGN & Zaheer Bhai’s. KGN serves well-stuffed, flavoursome chicken shawarma with a choice of three kinds of bread – chapatti, pita, and doughnut bread.

2. Chicken Vada pav: A non-veg alternative to classic vadapav. Try it at Baba Shawarma or Kebab Corner. A chicken cutlet inside the Mumbai pav, served along with crunchy onions, it makes for a delicious in-between snack.

3. Kebabs: Soft, succulent and flavourful, the mutton kebabs on this food street must be had. Though there are many stalls offering different kebabs, our foodies recommend Raees Kebab Corner’s kebabs the most.

4. Halwa Paratha: A much sought after dish on this street, the halwa parantha combines two delicious dishes by stuffing elaichi-flavoured sooji halwa inside a crisp parantha. Try it at Leslia’s or Aslaam’s.

7. Khichda: Khichda is a complete meal in itself made as it is with meat, lentils, rice and spices. Made in large quantities daily, this nutritious dish is usually sold out quickly. Best had at Hussain Khichdawala in Mahim Khau Galli.

9. Apple & Mango Juice: Bismillah Juice Center is known for its apple juice, which is made from fresh apples mixed with milk, ice, kesar and garnished with grated apple. Their mango juice is also highly recommended.

10. Pizza: The ‘pizza’ kiosks, often a flimsy waist-high table holding up an electric oven, are hard to miss. The pizza itself is a flatbread covered with a tomato based sauce and then topped with vegetables and chicken. It is finally drizzled with a generous helping of grated cheese and dollops of mayonnaise.
