Bombay food itinerary - please critique

Calling on MumbaiCentral, Osho, Skinnylizard et al - need your help/suggestions/advice on eating in Mumbai between Wednesday and Saturday this week. I've posted a separate topic - any chance you could respond?

Mumbai emergency!

Title a little dramatic but my trip to India has been a last minute affair and so far I've been making do in Delhi, Agra, Jaipur etc. There's no way I want to miss out on all the amazing eats that Mumbai is bound to possess and somI am turning to you all here formsome (hopefully) last minute advice.

Ordinarily I would ask for the bestnjointsnfor the following foods:

Best burger (sorry if a little insensitive seeing as this is the India board)
Best sandwiches (toasted and other - I hear Mumbai is a must try for these)
Best pizza
Best kebabs (London hasnsome great seek kebab joints but there's no way that they are the best in the world - surely Mumbai can deliver on this? Delhi disappointed a little on this - I ate at Karim's but the highlight there was the Karahi Ghosht rather then e kebabs)
Best Karahi Ghosht (or similar curries which need to be accompanied by great roti/naan piping hot and buttery

To this list I would add anything that you can suggest that I should simply not miss out on whilst in Mumbai. I have taken note of the fairly recent posting of the Bombay foodnitinerary and what look like excellent suggestions there. I am also reading the Mumbai Boss blog for some info but don't know-how reliable they are on food. I would add that I am the biggest fan of cheap eats and street food because to me they exemplify e best of food. I'll be staying in Colaba at the Taj so if I want expensive, watered down bland food there's probably plenty of it right there.

Oh and to make my lack of preparedness worse, I arrivemin Mumbai late tomorrow night and leave on Saturday 17 November so not much time.

I will be planning my Mumbai itinerary around food rather than sightseeing priorities so please, look forward to any help/posts that you can all provide.
