What is the Maharashtrians favorite food


A resident of Mumbai is called a Mumbaikar. People prefer to stay near a train station for easy access to the metropolis. Many city dwellers lead fast lives with very little time for other activities due to the large amount of time devoted to daily commuting.

Language [edit]

Marathi is the official language in Mumbai. Common South Bombay jargon includes expressions like “aye” and “let me know”, which is usually followed by the answer “I'll let you know” (commonly abbreviated as “lmk” and “ilyk”).

Kitchen [edit]

The metropolis has a roadside fast food consisting of Maharashtrian Pav Bhaji, Vada Pavs, Dabeli, Panipuri, Bhelpuri, etc. South Indian and Chinese food is also popular in the city. Lebanese, Korean, Thai, Italian, Mexican, Mughalai, Punjabi, Mālvani and Continental cuisines are also popular in Mumbai.

Mumbai has some of the oldest restaurants in India. Delhi Darbar, Sindhudurg, Autobahn Gomantak, Samrat, Vitthal Bhelwala, Mahesh Lunch Home, Kailas Parbat, and Adarsh are some of the oldest restaurants in town. Mumbai is popular for its roadside food stalls, but there are also plenty of chic and upscale restaurants and pubs such as Wasabi, Indigo, The Zodiac Grill, Aer, etc.

Mumbai's culinary diversity draws many people to the experience. It is very common to know Mumbai as a street food hotspot as it offers a wide variety of flavors. In addition to the variety of dishes with different cultural influences, Mumbai has Khau Galli and Chowpatty, which are equally dedicated to fast food and meals.[1]

Mumbai is the financial capital and has a large migrant population. Members of the migrant families work with no other family support, so ordering food from nearby restaurants or requesting prepackaged meals (dabba as locally called) is an accepted thing. These ‘Dabbas’ are usually supplied by a special local delivery organization known as Dabbawalas. Because of these recent trends, some online grocery ordering services have emerged.

Tea is the most popular drink, followed by coffee. There are tea rooms in almost every street and corner. Other drinks are fruit juices and coconut water. Irani cafes are part of Mumbai's cosmopolitan heritage.[2]

The Marathi koli Songs that were the city's original music can still be heard in their original form and even repackaged pop / party remix forms in many coastal areas. The large number of migrants has also brought their own tastes in cuisine, music, films and literature, both in India and internationally. Bollywood music is the city's most popular type, played by the city's shops, taxis, and establishments. Indi pop, Marathi, Hindi music, Indian classical music, rock and international pop music have fans in the city. Western classical music also has a following in Mumbai. The Bombay Chamber Orchestra (BCO) was founded in 1962. It is the only Indian symphony orchestra that works and performs regularly with a concert performance standard. The Symphony Orchestra of India was founded in 2006 and is based in Mumbai. It often occurs at the National Center for the Performing Arts. Mumbai has also produced renowned classical musicians, such as Zubin Mehta, who considers Mumbai to be his hometown.

English music has a following and the city's local English rock base has grown significantly with its own bands. International music by Beyoncé Knowles, Bryan Adams, Iron Maiden, Eminem and Enrique Iglesias is popular here and sometimes sells the Bollywood albums. The rock / metal industry is active and is based in Mumbai and Pune. Independence Rock, popularly known as I-Rock in Mumbai and Pune Woodstock of Pune, are two of the main rock festivals on the Mumbai Poona Rock Circuit.

Many Indo-Gothic monuments also line south Mumbai - Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus[6];; BMC building, Gateway of India are some of these styles.

Mumbai has residential structures known as Chawl (‘Chaali’ in Marathi). These are the remains of the once booming cotton mills that provided employment opportunities and led to the migration of people to Mumbai. Chawls still occupy a large part of Mumbai's residential area.

Mumbai is the birthplace of Indian cinema with the country's oldest film shot in the Kala Ghoda region in 1896. Many cinemas, including an IMAX domed theater that focuses on the mainstream films Marathi, Bollywood and Hollywood, shape the city. There are some old cinemas in the city like the Plaza, the New Empire Cinema (Mumbai) and New Excelsior.
