Opened in 1923 by Abdul Karim, Noor Mohammadi is a landmark on Mumbai's culinary map, and is equally popular as the Minara Masjid nearby.
Not to be overwhelmed by the Nali Nihari and star-inspired Chicken Sanju Baba, are its Beef Kebabs (Rs 7/piece).
Cooked in the restaurant’s outer foyer, on a busy pavement, the whiff of tender beef mince balls flavoured with secret spices and prepared on an open, butter-greased pan tempts passersby. A family-owned recipe ensures it’s one the most sought-after stops for Beef Kebabs in Mumbai. A dedicated cook kneads the mince, rolls them into uniformly-shaped balls and fries them in quick succession. It’s best eaten with their robust Rotis or Parathas.
