Ramadan evenings in market areas around Dargahs and Mosques are fabulous feast and market nights and visiting one of these in your city is an Chicken tikkaexperience not to be missed. Throngs of people walking past street vendors selling mouth watering kebabs, malpuas and more.

Or walk down the lane heading to Mahim Darga and walk past stalls and stalls of Beef and Chicken kebabs stuffed in Pav, Shawarmas and plenty more.
