One of Goregaon’s most popular hotels, The Fern Goregaon, is hosting Khau Galli, a street food festival. The festival began on August 17th and runs until August 26th. So if you haven’t gone to this festival yet, do make sure you head there soon.
The festivities are around the corner so you might just want to try this one out with your loved ones.
We visited the Khau Galli festival on the opening night. The atmosphere was festive, with colourful décor all over Fleur, the restaurant at The Fern Goregaon. Khau Galli is being hosted indoors and outdoors.
What’s Khau Galli all about?
Outdoors see the various kiosks that are changing every day of this 10-day festival. From Chaat and Momos to Lassi and Parthas, from Haleem and Kababs to Dhokla and Goan poi, here’s a bit of varied Indian street food for you to relish.
Yes, most of Mumbai’s popular street foods feature on the menu. There’s Chinese bhel and Maggi, Mumbai sandwich, a special Mohammad Ali road special, Misal Pav, Falooda and a whole load of Mumbai Chaat. The Mohammad Ali road special includes some great Bheja, Kaleji and Kababs freshly made for you at the live Tava counter.
Who is stirring it all up?
Indulgently designed by Chef Samir Tendulkar and Chef Sagar, The Fern’s pride of kitchen, the Khau galli festival is now in its second year. Chef Samir comes with his Indian culinary expertise, with prior stints at five-star hotels like The Westin Mumbai. “This festival brings to the people of Goregaon some great opportunities to try many street foods of India under one roof”, Chef Samir says.
We also caught up with Mr Sujit Gopinath, General Manager of The Fern Goregaon, on the opening night of Khau Galli. “While we’re known mainly as a business hotel, we also look to create more fun and engaging opportunities for the local community here”, he said. What an idea, sirji! Goregaon sure looks forward to more such culinary experiences.
Not only does one enjoy the street food experience to begin with but can also enjoy a lavish dinenr buffet spread at Fleur, for a modest ₹975 per head (exclusive of taxes).
Do make a Khau Galli plan soon – you have till the coming Sunday, August 26th. The festival goes on from 7.30 to 11 30 in the evenings. Take in some street food ambience with the colourful popups, festooning and true-blue Bollywood pop music.
