Mohammed Ali Road aur Pakwaan

Monsoon ki Baarish aur Ramzaan 
Mohammed Ali Road aur Pakwaan
A brilliant combo and a feast for the eyes, palette, heart and soul!!

The mosque at the entrance is lit up with bright green and yellow lights, welcoming you to the glory of Mohammed Ali Street.

There is food for everyone from delicious rogan gosht, bhuna mutton, and the list goes on for the non-vegetarians to allu bun, allu chaat, for vegetarians.

I personally had gone to satisfy my sweet tooth and wasn't disappointed at all - Mewa Jalebi, Phirni, Malpua, Sandal, Mewa Samosa, Khajoor and Seviya phirki, aaaahhhhh just awesome. I wished I had a few extra stomachs for a day to gorge on the sweets, and unfortunately it did come true, the curse of good food.

There are many famous Pakwaan shops in and around Mohammed Ali Road to taste a range of delicacies and pack some for your family back home. With no minimum limit you can order in small quantities and go for variety instead. If you go in larger groups, then more the merrier!! 

After you are done with food, you can pick up some knick knacks from the night flea market, offering kitchen handy items to bangles, caps, perfumes and massage oils, there is something for everyone. As a souvenir I bought 2 dozen plain glass bangles.

Finally, a glimpse of the night sky at Mohammed Ali Road, a potpourri of smoke from open tawa, fragrances of sumptuous food, and rain drops turning to steam, creating a perfect effect for a forever memory!!
