We’ve always been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and are sure you’ve been told the same, right? But we wonder why nothing along those lines is ever said about lunch?! Why such off-handed treatment to THAT meal of the day we eagerly look forward to post noon at work? We romanticise about the various dishes and condiments that come packaged in those hot-cases as imagination gives rise to a rumbling tummy and the keyboard and monitor get replaced with mental images of garma garam khana.
Because we feel as strongly about our lunch as any other meal throughout the day, how could we have not noticed something as special as the ‘Light Lunch Festival’ in town!? Yep, you read that just right. So, not only did we do the digging, we also come bearing all of our great finds for you to make the most of! Get all the deets below!
What It Is | 20 rad restaurants from across Delhi are participating in this festival with a specially curated lunch menu that can most definitely take care of your hunger pangs while still being light on your tummy. What’s better is that if you order from this menu, you also get a Bira 91 Light FREE! *YAS*
