Mumbai food special: Five areas to drop by this Ramzan
In all likeliness, today is likely to be the last day of fasting during the month of Ramzan. So, if you have still not had time to catch on the delicacies, head to any of these neighbourhoods to feast on the best of Ramzan
Bohri Mohalla, Bhendi Bazar
The bara handis of Bohri Mohalla are worth a trip every time, and while you are there, don’t forget to try Tawakkal’s sweets or the Imam Sharbatwala.

Minara Masjid, Mohammad Ali Road
Probably one of the most-sought after neighbourhoods, especially during this time of year, the roadside stalls around Minara Masjid haven’t yet lost their charm. Head here for delicious kebabs, rolls, malpuas and tasty jalebis, and if you’re not into street fare, step into Shalimar, Noor Mohammadi Hotel, Jaffer Bhai’s Delhi Darbar or Suleman Usman Mithaiwala.
Mahim Dargah Mahim (W)
A slightly less-spoken about area in terms of Ramzan delicacies, it’s worth a visit for its kebab stalls in the lane right opposite the dargah.
Naya Nagar, Mira Road (E)
It’s not as great as the places in town, but if suburbs are where you would rather be, Naya Nagar comes across as
the perfect hangout.
Jama Masjid, Bandra
Yet another less-known area, in terms of its delish street fare. The Dal Khichda here is to die for.
