World's Best 'Vada Pav'...

Wed Oct 05, 2011 2:06 pm

This thread is dedicated to HAWK21, who may end up posting a few pictures....

The NY Times has a good article on the search for this tasty Mumbai street food snack:

So, my question is if you have a signature street food snack that your city is famous for? Pics please!

Mouth-watering pics indeed!    Can't believe the price - Rs 8/- is just 20 cents US.

I agree! Street food is best eaten on the spot - bhel puri, golgappas and so on!

I remember staying at a 5 star in 2005 in MAA & eating the Idlis at the adjacent street vendor as it was soft & melting compared to the ones at the 5 star.
Often wondered why the 5 star hotel never hired the street vendor to work for them

Tempting video! The use of bare hands is essential for getting the right taste.

As students, we would go to Woodlands in MAA; best butter masala dosa and idlis in the world!

Woodlands in MAA;

Yeah I remember that place well......But the fastest preparations were at any Balaji restaurant in the country.
