Must visit place for foodies
Place and People: This place is close to Indore and market opens in late evening to till late night. This is like a very regular market in day time but it turns to heaven for food lovers at night. Ask to any local guy about the market and u will get the required info. Local people are very helpful and they take pride that u r visiting their place. Indori knows how to treat their guest. Connectivity is good but no one follows the traffic rules like any other small town in India. A lot of people comes everyday to have a midnight walk and to enjoy delicious dishes of Sarafa Bazaar. I think around 500 people would be visiting everyday, there is no reserved parking for this market but have enough parking area close to market and police would be there. So, stay happy stay safe.
Now comes to food: Name any Indian street food, u will get it here with great taste and gesture, as I said people of Indore knows how to treat their guest. I taste new dishes like coconut crush shake (must try), Jalebi like the size of a roti and thick, Malpua with rabdi to name a few and as usual the regular street foods like pani puri, chat, murmure masala, aloo tikki, Indian version of Hot dog, dahi vada (vada), Kachori, samosa, dhokla, coconut water, Momos, bhel, rolls, jalebi, rasgulla, Gulab jamun, rabdi, jalebi, phalauda etc etc. Eat till you have done. What amazed me is that the taste of every dishes and freshness. Please check the photos for more. Do not search for authentic chinese dishes, you will get chinese of Indian version :). And yes, this place is a bit dirty as most of the people are throwing their plates on road side. So, one request, please do not do this kind of things, there are dustbins use those. Ask for photos, shopkeepers will give a smile. So enjoy your night at sarafa bazaar.
Info: Do not scare when police asks that, have you stole something from that market? It's a jewellery market for day time.
Perfect destination for a foodie
I am heading to Indore

The founder of Indore, was Rao Nandlal Chaudhary. Indore changed hands several times from the Rajputs to the Mughals, and the Marathas, until they lost it to the British.
