Ramzan in Bangalore | Ramzan Street Food in Bangalore

7:39 PM

Savoury Restaurant, fully lightened up at Mosque Road, Frazer Town
Growing up, I always experienced the Holy Month of Ramadan as a simple affair with fasting from dawn to dusk and lots of giving and sharing. Ramadan in this country was synonymous to reduced office/school timings, prayers, setup of Iftar tents where free food was served, meant to be visited by the poorer section of the society, bachelors and travelers. I remember, Iftar being spread out not only by the government and organizations, but also by rich citizens in every nook and corner of the city. Dates, fruits, juices, harees and biryanis made their way in these tents. I also remember, exchanging Iftar platter with our friends and neighbors everyday.

Empire Restaurant, lightened up and having their own street food mela at Mosque Road, Frazer Town. Also, Empire is the biggest player across the city
But in Bangalore the scenario is bit different. Here, the city gets lightened up and street food mela comes live every year during this month. You can find these food stalls on the streets of Frazer Town, Kormangala, Bannerghatta, Jayanagar, Shivajinagar and Tilak Nagar. Foodies in Bangalore from all communities, especially hard core non veg lovers unlike me, throng these places in the evenings to savour on a variety of street food on offer.

Personally, I like to break my fast with simple Iftar menu at the comfort of my home. Last weekend, me and my husband decided to cover these street food fair for this blog and that's how we landed up there and had our first experience of Ramadan Street Food Mela. Though the rains this year had played a spoiled sport but nothing has stopped the stall owners and the foodies alike, business and food is at its peak in full glory.

This post is basically a photo scroll post with captions and I'll not be blabbering much here. Hope you will enjoy and get to know Iftar treats in Bangalore...
