Of all Mumbai's street snacks, Vada Pav has grown to be the darling of the masses. Its a pillowy pav, stuffed with a golden-fried spiced batata (Potato) vada, covered with a lick of tamarind and coriander chutneys and a sprinkling of garlic masala. The Vada Pav is starch heaven, an instant energy booster. Till date it remains a proud of Mumbai. 
We can also say that " Vada Pav - The Street food that defines Mumbai.."

"मुंबई की जान ....
गरीबो से लेके अमिरों तक
जिसकी सबसे है पेहचान"
"इसे खाये बिना ये दिल नाही मानता है,
यही है जिसे हर कोई जानता है "

First interaction with Vada Pav :-

At a speed that is rarely expected from a street-side fast-food vendor, he dropped a batch of perfectly shaped spherical ‘batata vada’ into the hot cooking oil which had been sizzling for quite some time. Vada are potato patties made out of smashed potatoes mixed with masala. Then he picked up Vada in a square-shaped bread called ‘Pav’ and sliced it open with a finesse. Then slathered it with a green chutney & garlic chutney. He placed the Vada in between two layers of Pav. He wrapped it in a square paper cutout made with an old newspaper and handed it over to us along with 2 fried green chillies in exchange for 20 bucks. The moment I had first bite, its taste etched a gastronomical memory in my mind that I will never forget. It was, in simple words, just delicious and mind-blowing & all credit goes to the legend Ashok Vaidya. He started this in 1966 outside the Dadar Railway Station. 

Popularity with Vada Pav :-

As time passed, Vada Pav became more popular and different people tried it in different ways. Meanwhile, GOLI VADA PAV emerged as popular Vada Pav brand in India.
Vada Pav is not just a food, it is the love bite, it is the ownness in crowd and it is the dream. In 2004, Venkatesh Iyer dreamed for it & he started his first outlet in KALYAN. He named it as GOLI VADA PAV NO. 1. He started with more than 7 flavors in his first outlet & soon enough GOLI VADA PAV setup over 150 outlet in 40 cities. Now, It has became the fourth biggest fast food company in india.
