Vada Pav is synonymous with Mumbai/Maharashtra. It is the most easily available breakfast, snack, filler in the state, irrespective of the day and time. Here’s the BEST Vada Pav guy in case you are driving to Alibagh or Kashid or on the old Goa Highway — Shri Dutt Vada Pav!
Set up in 1982, Shri Dutt’s Vada Pav is the most popular joint on the highway and a BIG hit with office-goers and holiday-makers alike. While their Vada Pav is the most sought after, they have a decent demand for the other variants like Misal Pav, Samosa Pav as well.
I found the Vada Pav at Shri Dutt’s a little smaller than some of the Mumbai joints that I am regular at, but what taste!!! Absolutely heavenly! Served piping hot between the pavs (the buns) with nothing else but the red powder (garlic and chilly based), Shri Dutt’s is probably one of the best I have had in a long time. All my colleagues loved and devoured theirs too, and we ensured that we stop there on our way back.
Coupled with a ‘cutting chai’, you’d be satiated like you have attained Nirvana. Believe me.
Next time, stop by Shri Dutt’s on your way to Kashid!
