A taste of Mumbai comes to 'amchi' city

A taste of Mumbai comes to 'amchi' city

The Vada Pav, a Mumbai street food, is making an indelible mark on Bangalore's gastronomical taste. Crystal Yumnam and Kajal Sabherwal taste a Maharashtrian favourite

For Mumbaikars pining for their teeming metropolis and its unique version of street food, a silver lining now graces their dark gastronomical cloud. Located near Jyothi Nivas College in Koramangala, a one-room restaurant takes pride in producing the fieriest Mumbai vada pavs in Bangalore. So if you're looking for a taste of home, head down to Goli.
According to the man behind the Bangalore outlet, Adarsh Shetty, Goli Vada Pav is India's first ethnic fast food chain with products made in its fully automated HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) certified hands-free plant. Shetty and his team believe in creating an ethnic fast food chain that offers the humble vada pav in a hygienic setting at an economical price.
Goli means "harmless fun," says the manager. It also implies the round shape of the Vada Pav. The outlet's colours of red, green and white signify heat, tartness and hygiene. The Goli mascot, a man with a topi and mustache, symbolises the chain's desiness, taken with a pinch of Maharashtrian style, of course.
In the kitchen, chefs from five-star hotels and street carts of Mumbai rub shoulders, lending Goli a uniqueness that sets it apart from its competitors.
The Vada Pav comes in 10 varieties. The most commonly ordered Vada Pav is the mixed vegetable and cutlet.
The 'palak' (spinach)-flavoured Vada Pav is also in demand. As the restaurant is situated in one of the busiest and trendiest locations in the city, it does brisk business.
