Carter road Khau Galli – Cool sea breeze, young crowd and a great vibe – the Carter Road Khau Galli near the Bandra promenade offers more than just great food. Packed with famous street food joints and small eateries that serve up an explosion of flavours and textures, this Galli’s star attraction is the ubiquitous shawarma. The stalls also offer a wide range of other culinary delights, such as momos, falafels, wok-fried Chinese preparations, and spicy, lime sprinkled corn on a cob. Don’t forget to dig into scoops of frozen yogurts, sweet cupcakes or freshly made waffles for dessert.
01. Lassi te parrontthe
It’s a blink and miss joint. But the crowds would surely draw you towards it out of curiosity. Watch that man juggling with multiple orders, cooking, customizations and all. It’s a one man show. The parathas are outstanding. Brought pre-cooked and fried there, served with curd and pickle. Try the Aloo, Methi and Paneer ones. You’d have to arrive early, else they may run out of parathas, and you out of luck.
