Jalandhar, June 3
City residents managed to control over their cravings during the lockdown, but after the relaxations they have surrendered in front of their taste buds and have started relishing burgers and milkshakes again.
Within four years, ‘Neel's Delicious and Aromatic’ food joint has become one of the favourites among Jalandharites. Before the lockdown, it used to remain abuzz with fast food lovers because of great quality, taste and attractive ambience. After the lockdown too, people are preferring having burgers and pastas from 'Neel's' keeping in view the hygiene level here.
The restaurant has two branches — at Urban Estate and Sodal Chowk.
Neelgagan Arora, owner of the food joint, shared that like every other business, their work was also affected. However, when asked how is the response now, he was quick to say “excellent”.
“I had not expected this response. We have not started dining facility as per the orders of the government, but we are offering takeaway and deliveries,” he said,
“But I have noticed that people are preferring takeaway rather than depending on delivery services,” he said, adding that sometime people also eat in their cars.
About precautionary measures, he said even when there was no corona and the lockdown, he had been sanitising both branches of the restaurant on a regular basis.
“No matter what, cleanliness and hygiene has always been our priority,” he said, adding that customers' health and well-being was treated as the most important than anything else.
He said earlier also, chefs at the restaurants had been making food by wearing cap and gloves.
“Keeping in view the current situation, we have changed our menu and reduced the number of items, so that there is no wastage. At present, we are preparing burger, fries, pasta, and milkshakes and will soon start offering other food items,” the owner said.
