Six hours of it being official, I am writing this blog as the Moon smiles slant, observing billions rejoicing in the joy of Eid across the globe. Blame a Windows system crash, this post comes late, not being able to serve the lofty task of hungry souls, heading religiously to Frazer Town for the pleasure of taste buds. For the uninitiated, Frazer Town is the quintessential best host of a spread of Iftari food in Bangalore during Ramadan, for people irrespective of caste and creed. You may refer to blog   to understand what it means for us fellow Bangalorians.

Much have been discussed about the glory of Ramadan food. The sway of preparing a Dum Biryani is an art in itself. Attaining that perfect blend of meat and spices to produce  a stick of sheek to melt in your mouth demands an enviable mastery. Roads around Haji Sir Ismail Sait mosque systematically becomes a much coveted treasure trove of a food connoisseur for the 9th month of Islamic calendar.

Things to remember:

Items that won my heart:

The “must have”s otherwise


For Eid is today and Ramadan 2017 whisked past us, for a spread alike we have to wait till 2018. One reassurance is the restaurants on the road are open everyday of the year. While you may not have the luxury of reaching out to each and every place on a regular day, mainly for space crunch in stomach, you will still find solace in one hospitable eatery of Frazer Town. For poultry lovers, there is no dearth of the bird meat anywhere. Go on, feast, for food is the only thing that brings all of us closer, in turbulent times like this.
