What you will experience
This walk is great for those who enjoy their non-veg fare while enjoying the old-world atmospherics of a popular neighbourhood in the city. The walk kicks off at St. Francis Xavier's Cathedral, located close to Ulsoor Lake and has some beautiful frescoes. And a striking central dome.
We then head out a sampling spree of some of the yummy dishes Frazer Town is known for, many of them being Mughlai and Middle-Eastern. This is where you will find some celebrated hardcore favourites to try such as haleem, paya soup, baida roti, bheja masala, gurda-kaleji and shawarmas. It’s particularly busy during Ramadan for the fare for iftar parties. From dates from Turkey to local specialities like bheja puffs and hareera, a delicious, saffron-infused milky beverage, there are allurements galore. Hot spots include Albert Bakery, Charminar Kabab Paradise, Pista House and Chichabas Taj.
