From steamed bao and shrimp wantons to spicy soya wine chilli chicken and Shanghai-style lat me kai — more than 2 lakh Calcuttans polished off an elaborate Oriental spread offered by 10 outlets at Chinese Food Festival, part of Super City Carnival presented by The Telegraph and City Centre, at the Kund area of City Centre Salt Lake from June 27 to 29. On Sunday, rain couldn’t restrict the foodies from having a feast at the Salt Lake mall that registered more than 70,000 footfall just for the love of their favourite Chinese delicacies

Maniktala residents and strict vegetarians Rajiv Nahata and wife Shikha were “very happy” to find a stall (Buddha’s Light) selling only veg delicacies. “We tried Crispy Chilli Babycorn and Fried Wantons. They were very good. And the best part is they offered us Fried Taro free!” said Rajiv
Mr and Mrs Liu from Tangra love fried wantons and had come to the Salt Lake mall to check how Calcuttans are responding to the Chinese Food Festival. “It’s great to see so many people braving rain for Chinese food,” said the couple, while savouring Veg Fried Wantons from Buddha’s Light Anusmita Biswas wanted to come to City Centre on Friday but dad could bring her only on Sunday.

Aritra Mukherjee and his cousin Aanusha Ghosh dig into a plate of Chicken Teriyaki from Wasabee while his mother Pampa holds the plate and keeps the rain off with her umbrella for the foodie duo. “We have come from Tollygunge only for this festival. Now we will have Bubble Tea from Buddha’s Light,” said the Class VII student of DPS New Town
