Mumbai is a haven for foodies, the city is literally brimming with cuisines, things to eat and places to go be at. If you're an epicure in the big city, you're probably having the time of your life. Yet, everything mouth-watering and delicious isn't hidden away in posh lounges, some of Mumbai's best food can be found in small joints, street stalls and old cafes that seem to blend with the cityscape of Mumbai.
If you're someone who enjoys food and everything related to it, this food walk is just the thing you need. Arranged in the quiet lanes of Matunga, this food walk explores the food trail that leads to the establishment of the first Udipi restaurant of Mumbai.
Matunga is unlike the other flashy neighbourhoods in Mumbai. This quiet residential area is known for its small quaint shops, the authentic South Indian fare and the smell of freshly brewed coffee. For an epicure the narrow streets of the area hold a charm that just cannot be found elsewhere in the city, especially for anyone who's a fan of South Indian grub.
This food walk organised by India Heritage Walks, traces the steps back to the establishment of this cozy little part of the Mumbai city which is filled with stunning culinary charm. Formerly known as the 'Mylapore of Mumbai', Matunga still retains many of olden South Indian restaurants making it a perfect place for people who relish good food!
The walk is a great way to explore the history and bathe in the glory of the cultural melting pot that is Mumbai. Head to Matunga and find out more about the regional food, the authentic flavours and the adaptations that happened along the way.
