Visitors to Mumbai (and locals for that matter) rarely explore Mahim. Nestled between the more trendy locales of Bandra and "Town", Mahim is often regarded as a no man's land that one simply drives through to reach someplace more happening. And that's a shame because Mahim has some incredible places to eat for the intrepid explorer. Here is a simple and straightforward food crawl to help you and other Trabblrs get acquainted with this food lover paradise:
1. Congregate at Sneha Restaurant to sample flaky parathas, chicken roast, and prawn masala from the southern Indian state of Kerala;
2. Head next door to Kakori House for a plate of galawati kebabs, melt-in-your-mouth morsels of lamb grilled to perfection;
3. Continue on up the main road toward the highway until you come to the lane that leads to the Mahim Dargah and make a left. Here you will see a variety of food carts selling numerous quick eats, including harissa (a meat porridge), shawarmas, grilled meats, and tangy dahi vadas. Be adventurous and try at least a bite of everything!
To get there by taxi, tell the driver to take you to Paradise Cinema in Mahim. Sneha is bang opposite!
