If you know me, I crave for some chatpata (mix of spicy, sweet and sour) street side food all the time. So when I was invited to Bombay Times I dragged mum to come try out this place.

Ambiance: Not going to lie, it is a very basic small cafe serving authentic bombay street food. If you are looking for some fancy place to eat some pretentious street food then I am sorry this is not your kind of place. They have just a handful of seating space and a chaat counter open to public on the outside. 

Service: The food came quick and hot as soon as we ordered it.

Price: 40AED approx for two.

What we had;

Pani Puri [6AED]: We obviously had to start of with Pani Puri. The puris did not taste stale and the water was just on point! The theekhi chutney (spicy) was so good!

Dahi Batata Sev Puri [8AED]: This was waaaay too yummy to not talk about. Wow. I loved the way the flavours just burst into my mouth with every bite. The puris were filled with sweet and spicy yogurt. I would so recommend.

Bhel Puri [6AED]: This bhel was delicious! Just the right amount of spices. The quantity was good enough to be shared between two very hungry or three moderately hungry people. 😛 The bhel was topped with some pomegranate and raw mango. It gave beautiful tangy and sweet flavours to it.

Junglee Vada Pav [6AED]: I love my usual plain vada pav. Therefore I wanted to give this a try since it was a crazier version of something that I love. Honestly, I would skip the junglee part and straight ahead go for the the normal vada pav. The junglee (onions, chutneys, tomatoes and coriander) was doing a little too much for my liking 😛

Chatpata Sev Grilled Cheese Sandwich [15AED]: One of the best things I got to try that day was this. This honestly was SO filling. It came with 3 breads, layers of masala potatoes, tons of cheese and sev puri on top. The flavours were absolutely lip smacking. Would totally recommend this to you guys.

Jini Dosa [18AED]: I love the typical south indian Dosa with sambar and different chutneys. So when I saw this I was intrigued. I had not seen or heard anything of this sort before. Sadly, I did not like it at all. A lot of people rave about it but I did not like the over powering taste of the cheese and the excessive masala in the Dosa.

Final thoughts: This place is a gem! I loved their food except one or two things. Bombay times may be small, but they serve absolutely delicious street food that no one can resist.
