Pragati Maidan with an approximate area of 72,000 sq m is one of the largest exhibition grounds in world. It’s a favoured venue for numerous events ranging from expositions by all kinds of industries to trade, book fairs etc. Quite often, on occasion of some popular event like International Trade Fair, Auto Expo etc, authorities are forced to limit the number of visitors in order to maintain law and order. To cater to demands of so many visitors, Pragati Maidan has quite a few eateries spread all over the area. There are many good restaurants too inside the premises as well as a movie theater.
If you aren’t in mood to eat in any of the restaurants inside premises, you can still have quite decent street food in any food court inside Pragati Maidan. Apart from the usual snacks, one can find popular food from almost all corners from India. Gatta roti from Rajasthan, Hyderabadi biryani, Pao Bhaji & Bhel Puri from Maharashtra, most of South Indian dishes, these and many more are available in their authentic flavour. Although in some case the prices are slightly higher, it’s offset by the sheer variety of food available in such a small area. Another plus point is decent indoor seating facility which is often missed in other places.
You can sample even more varieties of food during annual Indian and International Trade Fairs. People from all over India as well as world bring a lot of interesting products, a lot of which are related to food.
