Kolkatans can now eat to their hearts’ content at Haldiram Food City, the country’s first food mall. The 60,000 sq. ft., Rs. 8 crore, glass-fronted five-storied mall structure, designed by The Design Cell, has been promoted by the famous house of Haldirams, reports Business India.
Like the huge Haldiram’s outlet in Gurgaon on the Delhi-Jaipur highway, the Food City will have much bigger food counters on the ground floor selling, among others, mithai, pastries, chocolates, candies, besides a coffee lounge .
The first floor will house a huge 300-seater food court with separate areas for kitty parties and the like, and the second floor will be a supermarket selling all varieties of FMCG and home-utility products, including fresh vegetable and fruits. The third and fourth floors will be banquet areas. In short, every thing conceivable under the food category except alcohol and non vegetarian food.
