After all these years, it seems like the concept of the great Indian mela is back but with a contemporary twist. Food festivals are the new ways to spend a day filled with fun. For those who thought it is a fleeting fad, the trend is here to stay. Let's admit it, we're hungry for new options, yet always busy to try them (read: lazy) and so to have it all under one roof is definitely an attraction.
2015 was the year of many festivals that brought passionate foodies together. Before touching the hearts, palates and plates of food lovers in other cities, The Grub Fest, a brainchild of young entrepreneurs - Aman Kumar, Arjun Jain, Chaitanya Mathur & Mani Singh Cheema, is all set to head back to its base camp – JLN Stadium in Delhi, where it was unveiled for the first time. Last year, foodies got to witness two successful editions of the festival in April and October, at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi and the Ambience Lawns in Gurgaon. This time, they promise that the show will be bigger, tastier and even more entertaining. Here's all that you can look forward to at The Grub Fest Delhi -
What to Eat - You'll be spoilt for choice. Some of the best restaurants in Delhi and NCR like Social, ATM-PCO, Indigo Deli, Kylin, Depot 29, Holy Smoke, Big Fat Sandwich, Dao, Big Wong, Asian Haus, and Eggjactly will offer their signature delicacies. Hit the Bar - There's always something unique that the Grub Fest offers. Last year, it was the Grub Stories, Asia’s first high end multi storey traveling restaurant. This time, you can enjoy your drink at ‘SANASUNU’, first of its kind Ship Bar will be curated by Imperfecto and Informal at the festival.
