Oily, gheeful, fattening and spicy. If that makes your mouth water, you are probably a north Indian. Located bang opposite Gold’s Gym (LOL) at Pali Naka, Bandra, Papa Pancho da dhaba is a great place to satisfy your craving for north Indian food, especially chaats.
Having spent several years in Delhi, I was not much impressed with the quality of main course here. Though much better than several north Indian food joints in Mumbai, it still wasn’t satisfactory enough for taste buds that have grown up on such food. However, the chaats served at Papa Pancho are super delicious. Aloo tikki with chana, samosa chaat, aloo chaat and bhajiyas are easily one of the best in Mumbai. So next time you are around Pali Naka, make a trip back home with hometown food.
And hey did I mention that do carry some extra cash. This place is insanely expensive. 😉
