The street food of India has a special place in our hearts; the flavors are distinct and leave you wanting more. Every state has a different platter to offer and there are no two dishes that taste the same – we truly thrive in variety when it comes to our food. There is no doubt that Indian street food is scrumptious and irresistible, but have you ever wondered if there could be one place that could give you the best street food experience in the country? Recently, a Twitter user sparked a discussion regarding the same, and people did not hold back from sharing their reviews and opinions about the same. Look at the tweet here:

Twitter users from Mumbai and all over the country took the opportunity to take sides. Some explained that Mumbai food was reasonable and that no one would go hungry, while some expressed their love for Mumbai street food and how they are missing those fiery snacks in the monsoons –
Mumbai ke vada-pav jaisa kahin kuchh nahi.. Koi bhookha nahi so sakta yahan.. 10-12 rs ka vada pav also can quench ur hunger.. So Mumbai❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️— Archana Pandey???????? (@a_tiwari1989) July 14, 2021

Some just laughed it off saying that the Twitter user was ignorant and must not have tried other states’ street food.
Have you even been to Calcutta ?
No I guess.
And then Delhi…again I guess No.
But possibly u knew the answer and this was hook question to get answers ????— Bengali Baba (@BengaliBaba6) July 15, 2021
There is a king of Street food i.e. Indore.
Mumbai is a queen.
Do visit Indore and then decide yourself.— Mr Singh (@itinderpal) July 15, 2021
The most interesting were the people who lived in Mumbai but still vouched for other cities, sighting their far wonderful experiences out of their own state.
Go to Indore ……
Will forget Mumbai
I am from Mumbai only still say this— Padmakar Tillu???????? (@PadmakarTillu) July 14, 2021
I am a Mumbaikar but I’ve had better in Delhi ????https://t.co/sPyPqLJt8D— Shinu Sharma (@Shinu11_11) July 14, 2021
And one Twitter user rightfully explained that this is a discussion that could go on forever, it has a lot to do with the emotions related to the food, as it has to do with the flavors or taste.
Personally I think such discussions can go on forever. It really depends upon the taste of the individual and the speciality of the place. Be it food or the city itself. Delhi, Lucknow, Calcutta, Mumbai… and other places too. Let’s just enjoy the food we get without competing— Aninda Manna (@AnindaManna1969) July 15, 2021
