Mumbai can feel intimidating: so many cultural universes coexist within the city, each replete with its own unique history and traditions, all of which gives rise to a rich culinary tapestry.
Today, Mumbai’s food scene—made up of a mix of high-end restaurants, cheap eats, street food and more—is shaped by this fusion of cultures, which includes an indigenous fishing community and the culinary secrets of century-old migrants.
The hunger pangs of the immense magnitude of the crowds that take over the city, from its markets to its top attractions, can only be met by the million-strong street hawkers dishing out ubiquitous street eats. To truly experience Mumbai’s culinary scene, you’ll want to venture out and devour the very best street food that the city has to offer. Enjoy!
