The veteran actor loves digging into desi food even while in a foreign land
We often find the streets of Mumbai swamped with food stalls selling the local favourites like pani puri, vada pav, misal pav, and more. Huge crowds surround these stalls during certain hours of the day to enjoy these favourite food items. However, what surprised us recently was Neena Gupta’s desi street food indulgence in London.
Although the actor was spotted at what seemed like a posh restaurant in the UK, the menu there featured Mumbai’s popular street food items, and she was enjoying them. The Badhaai Ho actor shared a reel on her Instagram feed, where she is seen standing outside a London eatery, called The Bombay Bustle, and talking about the hearty meal she had there. She has the chef standing beside her and lists down all the street foods of Mumbai she just relished.
These included ragda pattice, dosa, Bombay sandwich, misal pav and chaat. She really enjoyed the hospitality and service of the restaurant and thanked the chef for the meal. Neena went on to say that she really enjoys eating desi food even in a foreign land. The video caption read, “Desi toh desi hi rahenge”. The actor has always been a close-to-home kind of a person, enjoying homemade meals.
In the past, she had shared different ways of making a healthy tikki. She was also spotted making misal pav at home, and shared the recipe for the same with her followers on Instagram too. The 63-year-old actor loves making food at home and eating out too. This one time, she was seen digging into a huge North Indian thali, filled with curries, dry sabzis, roti, rice, curd, several condiments, as well as desserts.
On another occasion, she was making a Gujarati snack, called khandvi, at home too. Looks like Neena is a huge fan of snacking as well as street food, which is why she ended up eating the desi street food of Mumbai even in London.
