This has become my ritual when I land in Mumbai. Head to Guru Krupa in Sion, Mumbai.
This place is always crowded, bustling with happy people of all ages. The minute one reaches here, to choose a dish becomes so tough that you look out for what everyone else is having 😉
Because of the number of times I have been here, I straight head to buy my coupons to have the Paani Puri at its counter. This is one of the best Paani Puris that I have been having for years. The uncle you see in this picture makes sure he serves them with a cute smile (you may need to be a regular to get him to smile though). He was so excited to pose for a photo as well 🙂
The puris are always crisp and the sweet and spicy water along with the Bhoondi (Rajasthani snack made of flour) filling just waters my mouth every time I think of this place. You may need to wait in queues some times as it gets crowded in here.
Couldn’t get good shots of these but try some of the sweets that you can find outside. Another best seller from the menu is the Ragda Pattice which is crispy and tasty served along with chick peas gravy. Try the Lassi to add more yumminess to the meal.
Don’t miss a small outlet opposite Gurukripa which serves lip smacking samosas in varieties that you would have never heard of. And the prices may shock you – yes these are the rates for 2015 😀
Let me know how your experience was!
