Mumbai food

If you could visit
only one Indian city
for its food

Let it be Mumbai, the country's most cosmopolitan city. What makes it particularly enticing is you can enjoy in its restaurants many of the top local specialties from India's other cuisine areas. And, although Mumbai has borrowed many dishes from other regions, it does have some interesting specialties of its own. And some have modish presentations (see photo).

Culinary geography

It straddles India's north-south culinary border. This means, for instance, that Mumbai residents readily eat both rice and wheat bread.

Historical influences

Mumbai's food has been influenced by the rich but not too spicy styles of cooking from the surrounding Maharashtra and Gujarat regions. Another major influence is the Parsis, Zoroastrians who migrated in the 8th century.
