And you can get the ultimate vada pav in Mumbai …. errrr … at least that is what Kat Craddock claims in her Saveur piece.

It is a relatively modern Indian invention. The main components—potatoes and baked, leavened rolls—were introduced to the area by colonizing Europeans, but Mumbaikars have made this fistfull of fried carbs very much their own. You can get vada pav on the street, on trains, and increasingly from brick-and-mortar fast food joints. Even McDonald’s India has gotten in on the action.

Go for it!

And it offers an amazing l8ist of places to visit., I will be consulting it this summer!
