Hi Long back a chain named Jumbo King selling wada pavs with whole wheat bread.
I tried it and it was good. But there is one point I would like to mention. I am not too sure of the %age of wheat in a brown bun. In those days it used to be just 5% wheat with caramel colouring.

Have you guys been to SpiceKlub (Indian food with a twist) & Quattro (Italian) - both Veggie places owned by the same group and probably in the same building, they have other restaurants around Mumbai as well, found when I looked up their website.
Spoke to a friend from Mumbai recently and he was raving about the places, amazing food according to him On my list whenever I visit Mumbai next

SpiceKlub is just normal dishes presented in a fancy way(Molecular gastronomy),the kids love it though.The desserts are really good, the food is what you'll get anywhere else. There is Chemistry 101 in the same area which serves Non-Veg too .Its a similar concept. Quattro is nice.

Any recommendations for good snack takeouts (Samosas, Batatavadas etc) close to Thane Station West?

The most famous one is Kunj Vihar, opp the ST bus stand. Then there 2 Mamlatdar - famous for misal, superb and spicy. The oldest outlet is in a small hole in the wall setup. Another better outlet, restaurant style seating one is a little walk from the station.
And then there would be plenty stalls along the road, look for the most crowded one.

Both are good, but not excellent (overhyped IMHO). Family loves them. I'm willing to bet your friend is a gujju.

After a long time, went to Kebabs & Kurries @ ITC. Oh my god, the food quality was always good there - it's now gone beyond excellent. Had a paneer kebab starter, dal bukhara and some vegetable. Absolutely mind blowing.

Have become a big fan of the pindi chole made by member V16's restaurant Pritam Da Dhaba. Proper 'north india' taste...the best chole in Mumbai. Gobble it down at least once a month.

Question Re: A Guide: Eating out in Goregaon?

Any spicy misal outlets around goregaon west? Sapre's are NOT so spicy and from what i know, mamledar is NOT here.

Thakur's is good for desi egg omelette's. Are there any other outlets like this in and around goregaon west, worth trying?

I am in goregaon for couple of weeks.
Pl. send in your suggestions.

Not sure of its been mentioned but for some of the best burgers that I have eaten anywhere, head to fat kid deli near Vashi station. The most humongous burgers I have had the privilege to eat with a taste to match. The have reduced their fries that come with their burgers but still high recommended.

Well no, I guess it's not very easy to profile us Bengalureans

That guy is actually a south Indian who is now enjoying Veggie food a lot more than his regular Non-veg fare and is not a great fan of Gujju food since he prefers Spicy food like Andhra cuisine

Not Goregaon, but if you happen to go towards Santacruz, Potoba right opposite Kalina Univeristy has good misal.

@JMaruru, there is a Mamledar outlet in Mahavir Nagar, Kandivali. Opp Starbucks.

Another misal joint is Shree Dutt near Liberty Garden, Malad.

And one more is Mee Marathi, in Goregaon East.

I have eaten at their Vile Parle joint and liked the food.

And another pure Maharashtrian family run joint, near Goregaon Station on the East side, whose name I can't remember.

@Carboy, did you find the places in Thane?
