    Vegeyum – Thanks!

    Miri – Hey! Thanks for sharing – That’s an area I haven’t been to much! I kept visiting Govt. Law College canteen years after I left law until they eventually found out and forbade me from paying further visits;)

  • Miri

    I grew up in Matunga and come back every year to all the fav haunts – Subhash’s sandwich opposite Podar college is to die for! and then the bhelpuri and panipuri at the first garden of Five Gardens, Dadar. There used to be a really good dabeli guy in Kings Circle, but couldnt find him this time.
