This is the best missal, arguably in the district. It’s so good, Marathi film actors sneak in for a plate on weekdays.

4. Golden Wada Pav



If you ask a native where they go to get a vada pav, after much mumbling and grumbling about fat queues and traffic jams, you’ll hear, “Golden”. Admittedly, to the unaware eye, it’s a blink-and-miss shop on NH4, were it not for the long line and a lone man continuously frying vadas, bhajiyas, moong dal pakodas, samosas and jalebis. The pakodas are great but it’s the Jain (garlic-free) vada pav that everyone files up for. The secret, we’re told, is in the fiery thecha chutney, which the Khandelwals use liberally to flavour the potato patty.
