Mumbai can be an expensive city to live in, more so if you are an outsider. The cab fares and accommodation expenses alone can pinch your pockets and leave you with a strict budget to live by. But when it comes to food, aamchi Mumbai doesn’t disappoint. It’s dotted with pocket-friendly eating joints where you can fill your tumtums to your heart’s content without worrying about the affordability.
We bring to you our top favourite places in the city with a hint of what to eat at each one. 

Crystal, Chowpatty
This popular casual dining restaurant is almost always crowded with people, especially students. It has been winning the hearts of its patrons with its "homely" food for many years. Even though it's located at one of the most prime locations of the city, the food here is very economical and ultra-delicious.

Café Military, Fort
This is undoubtedly one of the oldest Iranian cafes in town that has been delighting people with its Parsi food for decades. Its interior décor exhibits antique mirror and painted glass panels on the walls and looks delicately pretty. 

LiveInStyle Loves: Try their signature Kheema Pav and if you have a sweet tooth try their Caramel Custard.

Bagdadi, Colaba
If you are a true Mumbaikar, chances are you already know about this place and have been here with your bunch of buddies. This tiny and quaint restaurant is a lesser-known gem in the crowded streets of Colaba. So tiny, that you may actually miss it unless you look for it. But the food here is exquisite.

LiveInStyle Loves: Their Chicken Fry and Kadhai Paneer will put you in a food coma!

Average cost of meal for two people: INR 400 (approx.)

Hungry Forever

D.P’s, Dadar
This eating joint is one of the most famous addas of locals. We know every Mumbaikar swears by the staple vada pav, but D.P’s may tip you in favour of their mind-blowing pav bhaji and masala pav. Satiate your cravings for fast food and chinese cuisine as this restaurant has quite the fan following. And, so easy on your wallet!

LiveInStyle Loves: Their Crispy Corn Plum Chilli and Thai Pot Rice are not to be missed. Don’t leave the place without relishing their special D.P’s Falooda.

Archana’s Kitchen

Café Madras, Matunga
Do you crave for South Indian food ever so often? If yes, Café Madras can be your perfect fix. From its freshly brewed filter coffees to its crispy Mysore dosas and medu vadas, there is nothing you don't want to devour. Their old-school ambience and décor is just as inviting.

LiveInStyle Loves: Binge on their Pessarettu and Tuppa Dosa and your stomach will thank you for it.
