It is Ramzan and how can you miss the festive food that is served in the mosque road. For many years, mosque road in Frazer town has become synonym to tasty and authentic Muslim food. But, this feast is not just for the Muslims. In fact, most of the people enjoying the food when we visited the place were from other religions. Well, that is the power of food.

It was a Sunday night and we were late. We reached Frazer town at 10:30 in the night. We were very hungry and thought that we wouldn’t be getting any food at this hour. But, as we neared the mosque road, we saw huge crowds. Was it almost midnight or just the beginning of the day? We couldn’t say because such was the enthusiasm of the crowd. There were people everywhere. Food stalls were erected in front of every hotel. You could find all kinds of food veg, non-veg and desserts. There are numerous restaurants and eateries lined up on this road and you can have a jolly good time by visiting each one of them and tasting all their food items.

One thing you must do before going here is having a brief idea about the eateries and the food that they serve. If you do not know that, you will be lost. And that was our exact situation. We didn’t have an idea about the event so it took us by surprise when we saw so much food and crowd. When there is a overdose of food, you react in two ways, you either get sick or you just enjoy the feast. We were four of us in the group. Two felt sick, while the other two explored the various possibilities of food.

Winters are incomplete without midnight snacks. The cold nights accompanied by constant midnight cravings can never let you sleep in peace. For all the fellow foodies who love to binge on some street food during the late hours of the night, there is only one place for you – Sagar hotel. The two storied white building looks simple, plain and old fashioned. But that is exactly opposite of what you will feel about the food served here. The crowd in front of the hotel begins to form at seven and will continue until twelve in the night. Unlike other fine dine restaurants, people do not wait to get into the hotel. They just enjoy their food on the street and it is fun!

Sagar is one place where you can just pull your car to the side after a long drive in the cold winter night and order some tasty street chats and enjoy them sitting inside your car. There is no place else like Sagar when it comes to swift service and consistency in taste. This place gets a 4 on 5 for its lively ambiance and delicious food.
