Heaven for non-veg lovers, Mahim Khau Galli is a must-visit if you love hot piping kebabs, tikkas, kheema, and more.
One of the most popular khau Gallis in Mumbai, this one is known for its seekh kabab, falooda, biryani, nihari, and almost everything delicious in non-veg, and so if you call yourself a hardcore non-veg fan and love devouring mutton and chicken, you should head to Mahim Khau Galli.
But that's not just it because, over the past few years, this foodilicious lane has also evolved and now offers vegetarian snacks and interesting things like fire paan and smoke biscuits, too. Now if you are craving all this, here's a list of 8 things you just can't miss if you are here, and thus, keep scrolling.
1. Nalli Nihari and Seekh Kabab
Served piping hot in less than 10 minutes, the Nalli Nihari and seekh kabab at Usmaniya Restaurant at the end of this khaugalli are pure bliss. The kebabs are juicy and will definitely melt in your mouth and are served with two parathas and salad. The Nalli Nihari, its taste, and its flavour are still lingering in our tongues and are a must-try. This one also comes with two parathas and is quite filling. Other than this, the restaurant also serves lip-smacking biryani and bheja fry.
Price: Rs.390 for both.
2. Mini veg pizza
As mentioned above, Mahim Khaugalli is also home to some good vegetarian snacks, so if you don't eat non-veg, there are still a few things you'd enjoy. Pizzas are one of them, and there's only one cart near Usmaniya restaurant that serves it. These mini veg pizzas are cheesy, have a creamy crunchy texture, and can be a good starter.
There are 2-3 shawarma carts in the lane, all offering 3-4 types of shawarmas. We tried the tandoori one and loved how it was made. However, the french fries were missing, but the perfect dressing and the soft and tender chicken compensated for the same.
4. Chatapata aloo chaat
At the start of the khaugalli near the first right, there are multiple stalls that offer Ragda, aloo chaat, as well as tikka items. The chatpata aloo chaat from here was what we liked and loved its sour and spicy taste.
5. Halwa Paratha
Another excellent option for vegetarians and a great pick for desserts, the Halwa Paratha here is pure bliss. The garmagaram chewy parathas go very well with the orange rawa halwa and are something everybody with a sweet tooth should try. The quantity for the given price is too good we feel and will leave you with a full stomach.

6. Kesar Milk
There's a dairy at the end on the left side and right opposite Rehmaniya restaurant, outside of this place, you'll find some piping hot kesar milk. The creamy doodh is topped with a dollop of malai, making it even better. A must-try during winter!
7. Fire paan and smoke biscuits
You must have seen and tried fire paan but have you ever heard of smoke biscuits? Well, that's what you'll get at Asif Paan Centre, and it is fun to eat. This small stall also offers 12 masala imli and meetha paan, which will surely give you a lot of school time nostalgia.
7. Falooda and shakes
Known for its falooda all across the city, Baba Ka Falooda is a place that is always crowded with people and has a long menu featuring different types of falooda and shakes. Go for the basic one or try different flavours like rose and even rooh afza.
