Usually in our home we don't buy Iftar items from outside. My mom cooks Beguni, Piyazu, Alu Chop in home and Muri, Ghuhni, Dates, Zilapi and fruits we buy from outside. This are our regular Iftari items. Some special days we buy Iftar items from Chawkbazar or Anondo Bakery.  

Story behind this article:
Today suddenly my Sir - Mohammad Atiqur Rahman, call me and invite me to take Iftar with them. He and his friends wanted to eat the famous OLD Town Chawkbazar Iftar. It's Friday but now a day's I have to work on Fridays as well in my office. Luckily this Friday I was free. I took them to Chawkbazar and as usual they became confused by seeing the Iftar items. It's very difficult to buy Iftar items from Chawkbazar because many items and no idea which one will be better / testy. After much thinking we decided to buy from Anondo Bakery. It's because fixed price and good quality. Anondo Bakery also keeps the flavor of OLD Dhaka traditional Iftar items. We bought lot's of Iftar items and move to TSC and find a palace for sitting. I took pictures of some Iftar items which encourage me to write this article.
