3. Mumbai, India

Dosa

Dosa is a South- Indian dish, like a rice pancake. But when in Mumbai, you have ample of options to make it spicy and tasty. Mumbai Dosas are kind of contradictory in taste but worth trying. You can try Jini Dosa, Masala Dosa, Cheese Chilly Dosa for starters.

It goes without saying that you need to try every pizza available in Italy. Apart from the love food of almost every millennial, you can also try:
