For many of us, the holy month of Ramzan may mean days of fasting but it also means a month of Iftar delicacies that we otherwise don’t indulge in! I mean, who wouldn’t love to break their fast with freshly grilled kebabs, bhuna naan or sweet firni? With aromas of tandoori meats and fried kebabs hovering at most corners across the city, we’ve put together a list for you to be able to satiate those taste buds, after sunset of course!

Café Noorani

Pali Hill and Tardeo

The kebabs here have become famous around the city for their flavour and depth. They are not only incredibly tasty, but perfectly satisfying when it comes to size as well. Well-seasoned and spiced, their reshmi tikka is one dish you don’t want to miss during this month!

Lucknowee Tunday Kebab

Jogeshwari and Kurla

Well known for their ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ mutton tunday kebabs, this place is revamping the traditional tunday kebab to something everyone has access to. The succulent and soft patties literally melt once you put them into your mouth. They also have a tandoori aatishi aloo for vegetarians which are spicy and tangy.

Nice Fast Food Corner

Santacruz

Nice Fast Food Corner is a stall at Santacruz which has been there for years. What you cannot miss is the khiri kaleji here! The pieces are well spiced and one is enough to give you life till sunrise. Superb in taste that has been consistent over the years, this place never fails to disappoint for a delicious feast at Iftar.

Sarvi

Byculla

Sarvi has been home to the most succulent, meaty kebabs since the 60’s. Though the sketchy interiors and the lack of signboards show no indication of the delicacies available, do not be fooled. Whether it is the bahra handi (a meat dish prepared with lentils, served with paratha), the paaya shorba (trotters in a spicy broth) or their seekh kebabswith mint chutney and onions, you’ll be amazed at the efficiency and consistency with taste each and every time!

Yari Chote Miyan

Yari Road, Versova

Like a mini version of Mohammad Ali Road, during Ramzaan, Yari Road is bustling with food vendors and the aromas of meat being cooked and breads being baked. Chote Miya is known for its amazing kebabs, but during Ramzaan they take their game up a notch. From mutton samosas to bhuna ghosht with naan, firni and mutton kebabs or baida roti, the stall has a lot to offer.

Farid Seekh Kebab

Jogeshwari

Farid Seekh Kebab is known to serve soft, juicy kebabs which aren’tsuper spicy or greasy. Had with their warm parathas, the simplicity in their service and ambience is complemented by the intricate, complex taste of their food.If you find yourself in the suburbs past sunset, this is the place to satisfy those Iftar cravings.

Tawakkal

Bohri Mahulla

This place is your one-stop-shop for any kind of halwa, barfi or other Indian sweet craving. The malai khaaja comes in five different flavours, the barfi is loaded with dry fruits and the firni is delicious without being cloyingly sweet! During Ramzan, you’ll even find malpua which tastes so much better hot out of the pan.
