Seema Omar grew up eating the incredible variety of street foods and sweets of her hometown of Mumbai. After moving to Canada, she found she really missed the exciting flavours and textures of these unique snacks. Together with her sister-in-law, Amreen, they decided to start a new food project —Bombay Street Food— to bring the delicious savoury treats that they love so much to their new Toronto home.
