The one thing common to all of these is crowds. At Badshah, bara hundi and Bade Miyan there's always a wait before you're seated - and bhelpuri, wherever there are crowds you'll find a bhelpuri vendor. All, in their own way, are the common man's food. Bara hundi which literally refers to 12 containers filled with different heavy gravies made from lesser cuts of meat like tail and trotters are the working man's meal. Bhel puri the much loved, delightful snack of puffed rice tossed with different chutneys is one of the cheapest and easily snacks after the vada pav. Not everyone comes to Crawford Market for Badshah's delicious multi-layered, multi-hued Royal Falooda but almost everyone who shops at Crawford market will stop by to pay their respects. Bade Miyan is probably one of the few places that people from all over the city will actually drive to for a baida roti or a mutton roll. Any evening in the week the little lane behind the Taj is swamped with vehicles and pedestrians congregated around the sigdi waiting for their ordered to be delivered by an army of servers.
