Frazer town, mosque road, Bangalore.
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.
