Top 7 Dishes To Try Out At Cafe Bambai
Bambai – this word takes you back by a century to the olden days when Mumbai was commonly addressed as Bambai. Cafe Bambai in Mulund takes you on a journey into the olden days with its retro-yet-urban ambience. This lively cafe was started by three friends Nikhil Naik, Rajbir Dhawan and Rushabh Ganatra who were passionate about opening their very own food joint and left their corporate jobs to follow their dreams.
The Mumbaiya Experience
The ever-enthusiastic owners of this cafe make sure that everything that you need is made available as soon as possible. Their friendly nature combined with the goodness of the food has made Cafe Bambai a well-known name in the suburb in just under 2 months! Let’s check out their unique offerings.
1. Hukkum Ka Ekka
If you’ve ever wished for a giant burger, this one is all you need to make your dream come true. Hukkum Ka Ekka comes loaded with lots of cheese and two patties – one paneer and one potato. Along with this, small pieces of nachos are added to the burger to give the crunchy element. Mayonnaise and chipotle sauce are added to give you the sour and spicy flavor. It is served with loads of freshly cut fries topped with piri-piri masala! We dare you to bite it in one go!
2. Cheese Overload Frachos
Frachos is a combination of french fries and nachos. The fries and nachos are mixed with loads of lettuce, onions and tomatoes. The whole mix is then topped with a generous serving of chili sauce and creamy cheese. But this is cheese overload we’re talking about so they top this dish off with a layer of shredded cheese! The delightful crunchy and spicy combo is simply amazing! One plate of frachos is enough to be a complete meal in itself!
3. BBQ Fraggie
Fraggie is a combination of french fries and our beloved Maggi noodles. The noodles come with a twist though; they are fried and are crisp to bite and chew! Along with the noodles, freshly cut french fries, onions, tomatoes and jalapeno are mixed. It is then topped off with loads of melted cheese and barbecue sauce. The spicy and crunchy ‘Fraggie’ is truly a delight for all Maggi lovers. If you love spicy food, you’ll absolutely fall for this dish. Do keep in mind that their serving size is huge; it may even take two people to finish one dish!
4. Bambai Ki Ma Fries

The dish is both spicy and tangy at the same time and will give you the exact flavors of kheema!
