Mc Chat…


A few centuries ago India was the world’s wealthiest country. It was called the GOLDEN BIRD. By the time India got its Independence, the tag and the wealth was gone and all the gold was taken. Now it’s a turn of the food. We are losing our food to the western world.

All the International brands and chains are finding their place or space in INDIA. They are developing at the rapid speed.

Take for example:
Food chains:
All the major American food chains companies are coming to India and expanding (Mc Donald’s, dominos, KFC and so on).
Mc Donald’s one of the most popular among masses, expanding in India. Started a decade back and today they have more than 100 outlets in India itself. They started with the segment of American food and ended into Indianize food form.
The adaptions of new method for the INDIAN people.

ADAPTION

Indianzie food:
• The entire major outlets have started the Indiaize food trends. They are changing their specialty of American food form to Indianized food form.
CHAAT WALLAH

CHAAT AT THE FOOD COURT


• All the major restaurant start offering and serving the street food like pani puri, bajji, Bhel puri, pav bajji, gol gappe so on. Due to which a tough competition has begun between the food chains in MALL and the chaat wallah on roads.

DESI BHEL PURI...


STYLISH BHEL PURI


The entire concept of the American food chain have changed and converted into an Indiaized food form.
Reson why people are shifting from the street food to the MALL food chain:
1. Shifting of ideas
2. Mindset
3. Lifestyle

FOod !! LeTs Goooo oUT…


Changing trends, lifestyle has changed many things.
Fast food is one of the world’s fastest growing food types. India is seeing rapid growth in the fast food and restaurant industries. The trend is radically changing the way people eat in India.

India is witnessing a tremendous growth in its fast food and restaurant industries.
Additional reasons include exposure to western cuisine, the rising number of nuclear families and growth in the number of employed women, which are also having a significant impact on the eating out trends and growth of the fast food industry in the country.

OUR NATION is all about its food and significantly fond of home cooked and fresh food, this trend is showing the globalisation of India and increase of new markets not witnessed in India before. With increasing number of people eating out the industry offers major opportunities which helps in capturing larger audience.

As a result of this trend, all the international food players like Pizza Hut, Dominos, McDonalds and KFC are increasing day by day. People spend most of their time out.
Earlier people used to go out only on weekends or on special occassions but now things are not the same, may be due to increase number of nuclear family, lifestyle and adaption of western culture.

In India, people have been eating at roadside eateries, dhabas and stalls which still occupy a major share of the unorganised sector, where fast food has been eaten traditionally. However, with the changes in the economy of the country and injection of modern employment from the West, the non-home food market has now changed.

Growing trend of consumption of multi cuisines and increasing brand awareness has led to the increase of global players. Organised modern formats like malls and supermarkets have also become a favourite destination for the outlets. Larger companies are teaming up with small franchisors and mall owners to promote their brand.
The growing segment comprises of formats like fast food chains, cafes and fine dining restaurants.

One cUP oF COFfee


Neatly done-up place, where a group of youngsters is strumming a new notation on the guitar, while another group of executives is busy discussing a new business plan. And undisturbed by any of this, an old man pores over an afternoon daily. Only one common thing: steaming cups of coffee.

There was a time when we used to get Nescafe coffee worth 5 rupees. But there is huge difference between that time and now.

A decade back, a word café was invented where not only coffee was served for more than 100 rupees but also a variety of coffees with additional menu were available. This culture starts expanding rapidly and expansion was converted into chains of café.

Café like café coffee, barista, coffee bean, mocha are few café which are very popular these days. Coffee consumed in these cafes mainly includes latte, mocha, cappuccino, espresso, friazzo and even the perennial old favorite, filter coffee. Over and above actually consuming coffee, consumers have begun to seek an experience and place a premium on brand and quality.

CAFÉ are not just a place where people come to consume coffee. They are also lifestyle statements. CAFÉ is a place where youth hangout, business men come for meetings and ladies come out for relaxation.
The cafe culture that is spreading across the cities in the country is pushing up the domestic coffee consumption.
DAY TO DAY we come across so many changes. The modern-day cafe that isn’t anymore just a place to sip a cup of brewed coffee.

The lighting and spirited music that complement the spacious interiors make these coffee-shops a chill-out zone… also serving as music stations, bookstores or venues for business meetings.
It’s not just the metros; even smaller cities are opening up to the `café culture’.
Over the past few years, cafes have seen a rise in popularity.
Few reasons for the popularity of café culture are:
• The café culture took wings with liberalization;
• Changing tastes and preferences of youngsters..
• free and relaxed atmosphere

Also, café chains are redefining themselves without shifting from their basic genre by experimenting with cafe and including various formats like cyber cafes, music cafes, studio for different activities, books café, with café.

Interestingly, books are the latest craze in cafes. Amidst all that chatter, wooden shelves stacked with books have managed to grab the attention of several youngsters.
“For many, the idea of a peaceful day is to sip good coffee in the company of a book, good music and smoke(hookah).

Café …  coffee…  enjoyment……. Love it 

DelHi BellY


Delhi: Hip Hop Happening.
Elegant and mysterious, crowded city streets, Sikh temples, serene parks, gracious hosts, outrageously good food…Delhi is a city of incredibly diverse character- an international Cosmo metropolitan city.
Delhi is known for its food and credited with being the most food-friendly city in the country. Name it and they have it whether it is Thai, Italian, Chinese, Lebanese or anything.

Indian food too, is served here, but take your pick between south Indian or Mughlai cuisine. Come to think of it, that’s the problem. There is nothing more to Indian cuisine in the city save Mughlai food, the ubiquitious chola baturas, dal makhnis and sambar-dosas. Call it a s fallout of globalization if you will, but the culture of serving diverse Indian cuisine, from various parts of the country, has died in Delhi. Not that it ever started. Where are the Kashmiri kahwas, mouth-watering thupkas and those authentic dal bati churmas?

Delhi variety


Delhi’s street food is known to die for. Every locality has their favorite ‘chaat’ walla and each have a specialty.

Delhi CHAAT


Delhi offers great eating joints in the form of low-budget restaurants, elite restaurants and road side Dhabas that satiate your taste buds with authentic Dilli cuisine. Delhi eating joints is that the capital city has a few streets and lanes that are totally dedicated to food. Some of the popular road side eateries in Delhi include places like Paranthe wali gali, Annapoorna, Bengali Market, Greater Kailash and Sunder Nagar are famous for entertaining their gastronomes with kababs, rotis chaat, bhelpuri, sweet meats and biryani.

Delhi has everything. Delhi is the most colorfully city in India. Delhi is a place of culture diversity and religious unity. It is this diversity that makes Delhi so lively and colorful.

Food and eating are a very strong element of each and every Indian culture
