Must-have food items at the Dhaka International Trade Fair
Walking on the grounds of an event as large as the Dhaka International Trade Fair (DITF) can build up quite the appetite. Fortunately, a variety of food stalls have been set up at Sher-E-Bangla Nagar, on the west side of Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in Dhaka, to cater to whatever desires those in attendance may have. Most of the food stalls boast average daily earnings of around Tk50,000, although owners are hopeful that the figure will rise as the fair goes on. Some, however, have managed to distinguish themselves from the pack. For those planning to go to DITF and pondering what to eat, the Dhaka Tribune has found some of the most popular food items at this year’s fair.

Spice it up with some Mexican cuisine

The Tasty Treats pavilion is constantly abuzz with crowds clamouring for a taste of their brand of Mexican inspired cooking. Alongside their Mexican combo meal of rice and chicken, the Mexican burger, submarine sandwich, shwarma and pizza have all been in high demand. The meals are priced from Tk60-150.

For the Chicken lovers

“Those who do not have CP’s Lollipop Bologna will definitely miss the tastiest food at the fair,” said Tuli, who had already gobbled up five of the spicy treats. The company’s earnings at the fair suggest she was not the only one who loved to eat chicken, with CP Internal Audit Officer Sadik Rahman informing that the stall was making between Tk3-4 lakhs on a daily basis. CP’s most popular items were the Lollipop Bologna, spicy chicken, chicken balls and hot wings. Fried foods such as chicken nuggets and burgers were also available at other stalls, such as that of Kazi Farms and Paragon.

Biriyani- Food fit for kings

If you are craving some biriyani, you need look no further than the stall of Hajir Biriyani. One of Old Dhaka’s oldest and most popular restaurants, customers unsurprisingly kept coming back for more. A full plate of chicken or mutton biriyani is priced from Tk320-360, while kebabs and Tandoori Chicken was being sold from Tk200-300.

Fuchka, enough said

Fuchka has long been a favourite among street food lovers in Bangladesh, and the snack food has been flying off the counters at stalls as fast as they are made. Despite the relatively high price of Tk50-150 per plate, those at the fair have not been dissuaded.
