Come Ramzan and the streets off Mohammed Ali Road, Mumbai will be brimming with people.

The shops that wear a deserted look during daytime will entice your taste buds with live, mouth-watering displays of food in the evening.

Some flock here to break their fast and have Iftar, while others come to explore and share their love for tummy-happy food.

Our photographer went tripping and came back with these photos.
