Khau Galli – Vile Parle

Gopal Krishna Bhel Puri Wala

Gopal Krishna Bhel Puri Wala in the iconic Vile Parle Station Khau Galli has been one of the forerunners in the Mumbai Street Chaat scene. The Ragda Patties here is one of their best sellers. We tried their Sookha Bhel, which makes for a perfect snack during the evening hours. They start off at early noon and are open till 11 p.m. – 12 a.m.
