Vada Pav

Vada Pav – a street food from the bustling streets of Bombay that instantly takes me back to the carefree days of my childhood!

As a kid, I would eagerly wait for the school bell to ring, knowing that the savory aroma of Vada Pav would soon fill the air. The moment I took that first bite, I as transported to a world of flavors – the spicy vada, the soft pav, and the tangy chutney danced together, creating a taste like no other.

The “Bombay Burger” is not just a meal – it’s an escape from busy city life, and gives you a moment to revel in the present. As I grew older, I realized that this iconic dish is not just about its delectable taste, but also about the warmth and love that Bombay exudes.
