Exploring the Food Streets of Fraser Town in Bangalore: Iftar Special

On this day when the entire city is rejoicing Eid-ul-Fitar with friends and family, I am sharing a few photos from my recent food walk on the fuming streets of Fraser Town in the form of a photo blog.

Fraser Town, for those who are not familiar with, is one of the hot spots in Bangalore, famous for its huge spread of Iftari food during the holy month of Ramzan. People from all around the city irrespective of their caste, will come here for some delicious food, great Suleimani chai and some good old adda. (Bengali’s version of a gathering to usually chit chat).

A Road Trip to Masinagudi – A Much Needed Respite From City Life

I have been craving a weekend getaway for a while now and when talks of a trip to Masinagudi was brewing, I knew that I had to go.
