Top 10 Vegetarian Street Foods of Charni Road – Mumbai

You get off the train at the Charni Road Station, make your way out of all the hustle and bustle at the exit, and you encounter a structure so beautiful and humbling, you fall in love with it. This beauty is the Saifee Hospital at Charni Road, and for tourists, it is hard to believe a hospital could be this beautiful.

Charni Road has a very interesting history behind its name. When the British Government raised a grazing tax, people didn’t know where to take their cattle. It is then that Jamshedjee Jeejeebhoy purchased grasslands near Thakudwar and opened them for the people to graze their cattle. Since then, it came to be known as Charni Road, with ‘charni’ meaning grazing in Marathi.

Now after so many years, this place is bustling with people busy with their lives. The close proximity to the sea also makes it famous. It has a few famous colleges, and the young crowd here is energetic and inspiring.

This has attracted all kinds of street food joints getting opened here. The streets are filled with a variety of foods, making your mouth drool and your tummy hungry. Shedding the restaurant tradition, the people here have taken to the streets to make, sell and eat everything delicious. From sodas to milkshakes, from a dosa to a locho, cuisines from almost all over the country are found here at affordable prices.
