Indian Street FoodMumbai, India
This place epitomizes the fact that if the food is good people will come, even if they have to sit on the pavement and eat. This humble sidewalk cart is located in a seedy lane behind the Taj Mahal hotel, an area notorious for drug-dealers and pimps. This doesn't deter customers in the least. Bade Miyan has earned legendary status for his egg parathas and charcoal broiled, onion smothered kheeri-kaleji (udder and liver), Mumbai's answer to a filet mignon steak. By the time the stall opens around 7 o'clock in the evening, there is already a line up of people and sometimes a limousine or two parked along the curb. Yes that is what Bade Miya is all about, It is a small thela continuously churning out kebabs and tandooris. And for seating they have arranged tables on foot path.
