If you don’t live in Mumbai, then please press Ctrl-P and OK now.
Things to put into mouth
a. Wada Pav .. without forgetting the garlic powder chutney and fried mirchis
b. Missal Pav .. can settle for Ussal Pav
c. Pav Bhaji .. extra buttered pav and also munching a papad will count as a bonus
d. Bhel Puri .. always try and find new varieties – must look for Ice Bhel Puri from Man-Under-Tree outside Mulund station
e. Ganne ka Ras .. 2 full glasses with adrak and lemon please.
f. Kala Khatta .. preferably from Juhu beach. While here, munching on a roasted corn cob would count as a bonus

i. Double Roti / Dabeli / Kachi Pav
j. Cutting chai .. roadside only
j. Dad’s special weird-flavored Kulfi from Thane (E)
