Can a person get Vada Pav in Los Angeles?

If so, do tell.

  1. Surati Farsan Mart has it on their menu:

    While I haven't had this particular item, everything I've had at SFM has been excellent. One of my favorite eateries in the region.

    1. While I will not endorse this restaurant (because of our singular negative experience), Mumbai Ki Galliyon Se has vada pav, and they do it well.

      Not sure why you are seeking this out - this is not a destination Mumbai street food - like say magaz curry - see Anthony Bourdain.

        Perhaps the OP wants one because they are fricking delicious.

          Very well said. Although I would've said "fucking" instead of "fricking" ...

          And, really, who cares about Bourdain? In my household, he's as relevant as day-old coffee.

            FWIW I probably can't think of a better food to sum up Mumbai. Cheap, delicious, quick to make, available almost everywhere and enjoyed by everyone from mansion dwelling bollywood celebs to hut dwelling rickshaw wale.

      2. India Sweets & Spices (Los Feliz) has it.
