Mumbai: The famous street food Vada pav has now gained global recognition and is ranked 13th on the list of the world’s best sandwiches.
The 50 “Best Sandwiches in the World” have been compiled by Taste Atlas, a travel guide for traditional cuisine that compiles real recipes, reviews from culinary critics and research papers about popular ingredients and meals.

Every state has a signature snack that is popular throughout the country. Similarly, Vada Pav, a popular snack in Maharashtra, has been named the world’s 13th best sandwich by Taste Atlas. Taste Atlas announced the ranking in a Twitter post.


The vada pav is widely regarded as one of the most delicious and popular street snacks in India, particularly in Mumbai. A deep-fried aloo bonda or vada is sandwiched between two buttered pav buns and served with green chutney and green chilies.

Turkey’s Tombik is first on the list, followed by Peru’s Butifarra and Argentina’s Sandwich De Lomo.

The website describes Vada Pav as follows: “This iconic street food is said to have been invented by Ashok Vaidya, a street vendor who worked near the Dadar train station in the 1960s and 1970s. He considered how to feed the hungry workers and concluded that the ideal dish should be portable, affordable, and simple to prepare. When Ashok invented vada pav, its popularity skyrocketed.”


Traditionally, the snack consists of vada, or spicy mashed potatoes deep-fried in chickpea batter, and pav, or white bread rolls.

Avocado Toast from the United States and Jibarito from Peru are also on the list.

Both the Peruvian Jibarito and the American Avocado Toast were chosen.
