Good Hood Food: The Mumbai Guide – The Best Places To Eat Around Chowpatty Beach

Last week, we took foodies on a virtual food walk through the best places to eat at Nariman Point in Mumbai. If you move towards Marine Drive from there and continue North, you’ll arrive at Chowpatty, a famous beach that needs no introduction.

Opposite Chowpatty stands Wilson College as well as a hostel, making the area a hot spot for teenagers, young adults as well as tourists and locals visiting the beach. Here’s where you must eat when you’re at Chowpatty:

Street Food

StreetFood

The Chowpatty street stalls; a bunch of stalls at the entrance to Chowpatty beach are legendary for their chaat. Try the sev puri or pani puri at any one of the stalls and follow that up with a husk of hot, roasted bhutta.

Opposite the beach stands another legendary eating destination; Bachelorr’s, which serves delicious milkshakes, smoothies and ice creams until one in the morning.

Non-Vegetarian Dining

Kobe

While most of our guides have a section for vegetarian dining in each area, any foodie would know that Chowpatty is a vegetarian’s paradise; most of the restaurants in the area are pure vegetarian.

However, Cafe By The Beach, which true to its name is a relaxing cafe that is right on the beach serves chicken sandwiches and burgers. Kobe Sizzlers, near Sukh Sagar is famous for its non-vegetarian sizzlers, especially its chicken satellite. Café New York has some tasty non veg appetisers and a jukebox to keep your feet tapping.
