Ramadan 2011 at Mohammed Ali Road, Mumbai

Yup, that’s where the Ramadan feast is moving. At Mohammed Ali Road, Mumbai. Have you been there during the Ramadan month?

You will need a Bodyguard to make your way through the maddening crowd that gathers here to catch up on the last few remaining days for Ramadan.

Ramadan Rally on Mohammed Ali Road, Mumbai

Bohri Mohalla and Minara Masjid are the two main areas where you need to be seen in the thick of Ramadan month. It’s here where the ‘All Night Ramadan Party’ is full swing on, but there’s a price to pay for the over-sell.

Everything you eat around is going to be over-priced (festive price) or under-cooked (mass produce) during Ramadan but that’s not your main grind.

Your night is to make with the crowd, find your spot, and taste all that you crave. So if it’s kebab, firni and falooda – here’s what you should be tracking on your food map in the holy month of Ramadan.
