Rolling In The Deeeeep.. Who doesn’t love this song right? But, while everyone else gets emotional when they listen to this song, all it ignites in me is a huge craving… A HUGE craving for a scrumptious roll! 😛
What’s not to like in a good roll? From Chicken Roll, to the Cheese Frankie, to a Chicken Shawarma, to now even a Nutella Roll. The seedha saadha Roll has evolved and HOW!!!!
I have some favorite GO TO places to grab a great roll. So, which are the best ones in the city? After a LOT of speculations, I managed to narrow down 10 best places to grab a mean Roll in Mumbai.
10 – Chicken Shawarma (Carters Blue). Do i even need to say anything? From a tiny shop in Bandra (Carter road) to, multiple outlets in the city…this place has grown and thats only cos of their amazing Shawarmas. The bliss of having a hot Chicken Shawarma on a breezy evening on carter road is inexplicable!
9 – LAYS CHICKEN SCHEZWAN FRANKIE (Shree’s Frankie Place). There is no kid who has studied at Bombay Scottish school, who doesn’t love the famous Shree Frankie. Located in the lane right opposite Hinduja Hospital, you will find a constant hoard of people outside his stall. The special thing about his Frankies is that, on request, he adds any flavor of “Lays” (the wafers) inside the Frankie along with the other masala. Its one of my favorite things to eat for my “4 Baje ki bhook”!!
8 – MUTTON ROLL (Venus Bakery). Unbelievable food at unbelievable prices! Situated bang in the middle of Chapel Street (Bandra), this place has the softest, most delicious Mutton Rolls. They have Chicken & Veg options, which are delicious too!
7 – TANDOORI TADKA FRANKIE (Tibbs – Lower Parel). The High Street Phoenix outlet is the only outlet of the so very famous Tibbs Frankie which serves this Frankie and TRUST ME, I don’t mind travelling the distance to lay my hands on this beauty!
6 – SALLI BOTI ROLL (TRC). TRC urf The Roll Company is this home delivery place which delivers fresh and exciting varieties of rolls to offices and homes (through Scootsy). The Salli Boti Roll available here is different, filling and incredibly tasty! This place is a tad bit expensive but totally worth the money.
5 – BHUNA CHICKEN ROLL (Khaane Khaas). Khaane Khaas, located at Pali Hill, is one of my absolute favorite places to go to for a Mughlai lunch. Though their rolls are a bit steep on the rates, their absolutely delicious taste more than makes up for it!
4 – CHICKEN & CHEESE FRANKIE (Kwality). Located on bandra linking road, this Frankie Stall has crazy loyal customers. There is a quintessential 20 minutes waiting atleast! Trust me, you want to wait! Sabar ka phal bahut tasty hota hai INDEED!
3 – CHICKEN ROTI (Hearsch Bakery). Located right next to the Holy Family hospital, I have never not had to wait atleast for a good 45 minutes to get my order!! Go at 10 am or go at 7 pm….it is ALWAYS crowded! They have some basic stuff like Burgers and spring rolls which are so damn delicious at dirt cheap rates. But their Chicken Roti is “Mashallah”! YUM!! Nothing fancy….its a Fat Parantha stuffed with their sweetish and tangy Chicken Masala. But there is something to it that I keep on going back only for the roti, whenever I can!
2 – BURNT GARLIC CHICKEN ROLL (Kathi Kebab Roll). Inspite of being located right opposite High Street Pheonix, this place is packed to the T whenever I pay a visit and most of the people there are visiting only cos they want to have this specific Burnt Garlic Roll. Apart from the amazing flaky parantha, the burnt garlic sauce that they put in it is beyond amazing! I found out about this place a month back and I have already visited 6 times in the past month!
1 – FISH TIKKA ROLL (Pal’s Corner) . I have an eternal, undying and unconditional love for sea food and thus, the perfect choice for my NUMERO UNO choice for some delectable rolls has to be the yum, yum, YUMM Fish Tikka Roll at Pal’s Corner. This place is located right next to Mini Punjab (Bandra) and is extremely famous for its sea food. The Fish Tikka here is just about everything a Fish lover wants in his life – Delicate and melt in your mouth Fish Tikka with some spicy and tangy Green chutney loaded in a fine and soft Rumali Roti….Need I say more?
