For those who’ve been over (but not on) Mohammed Ali Road, it’s hard to picture the blighted stretch underneath as an all-night, kilometre-long buffet. What’s even harder is finding your way to where the meal is – unless you know where you’re headed. The evening rush to buy food supplies which is being cooked on charcoal grills, hundreds of street vendors selling every possible thing needed for a daily life, and to top it all with perfect picture square for a photographer is just the right time to head there.
The area is dividend into two zones: Bohri Mohalla and Minara Masjid. The former is the quieter of the two, and packs up by midnight. Minara Masjid’s vertiginous green minarets are hard to miss.
Insomniac adventurers can follow the action all the way up to (or down from) Nagpada Junction. Distances are walkable and even the narrowest streets are floodlit. Only the sunrise will stop you from shooting it all.
