Copper Chimney’s The Great Indian Kabab Festival – Dig into Authentic Traditional Food


Authentic! Traditional! That 90s touch! Old street taste, inviting aroma – Few phrases we use to locate that specific food that will take us back to those golden days when each dish with that one common main ingredient tasted so different and unique. Those days, the chef signature was imbibed in everything and whatever we try at home, we will go back to him for that specific flavor.  These days, most of the times when we eat out, we end up feeling better making the dish at home and let me tell you, at times it is much better. Take for example, tomato soups at restaurants taste almost like Maggi soups we make at home. Where is that signature that makes us drool and walk in to the restaurant for that experience? We happily had one such experience with Copper Chimney at The Great Indian Kabab Festival happening now till April 14th 2017.

Pilgrims depend on hotels and restaurants where such food is not provided. Same case with the stay also. The pilgrims require a dormitory to keep their pilgrimage intact but to locate those and get a space is pretty difficult for new comers and travelers. To help such people, now there is a place for stay providing food that suits pilgrims.
