9 Street Stalls in Bangalore For Mouth-Watering Vada Pav and Pav Bhaji


When I was working in the IT Sector, the evening Vada Pav and Chai was the highlight of my day. Lunch was hardly an extravagant affair, so it all came down to the evening tea break with colleagues and it was Vada Pav and Chai that ensured my day felt just a little better. 

Pav Bhaji has always been one of my weaknesses. I still remember the first time I had Pav Bhaji  was a friends birthday party in my 4th standard. She was of course my best friend then, it was so easy to make best friends then, and her mom ended up making me 10 pavs because I just couldn’t stop. The pav made warm in butter and the onions on top of the bhaji topped with lemon was heaven. 

Here are 10 spots in Bangalore to give you the same kind of feels for Pav Bhaji and Vada Pav. 

Sri Sai Foods 

Located in Jayanagar, 1st Block, Sri Sai Foods serves Mumbai Street Food, Karnataka Chaat and North Indian Chaat, although they are best known for their Vada Pavs and Bhel Puri. Sri Sai foods stands apart from other outlets as it is a franchise of two shores – Karnataka Bhel House and Goli Vada Pav. Best of both worlds, we say!

Mumbai Vadapavala

Bombay Pav Bhaji and Tawa Butter Pulav 

I don’t need to tell you what are the specials here. The name says it all. You might want to take note of the fact that they use only Amul butter to toast their Pavs. One look at the Pav sizzling in more-than-adequate amounts of butter and you will be drooling for Pav Bhaji like there is no tomorrow.

If you’ve been in Bangalore long enough, you’ve heard of the VV Puram Food Street. Dev Sagar is part of this delicious trail and serves Mumbai Street Food. They also happen to be one of the select stores in Bangalore that serve the delicious Dabeli.

Mumbai Vada Pav

Located in a prime spot next to Jain College, this 8-year old stall serves up a variety of Vada Pav. While Jain students swear by its similarity to Mumbai Vada Pav, we will let you take the final call. We will also let you in on a little trade secret – They have a Gobi Vada pav ( Gobi Manchurian placed in a pav) which is a must-try.
