Take your pick—burgers with freshly baked buns, sandwiches and wraps with fresh lettuce, 100% chicken patties, Lebanese falafels, peanut butter jelly sandwiches or banana splits—and worry not about burning a hole in your pocket.chandigarh Updated: Dec 07, 2012 16:41 IST
Take your pick—burgers with freshly baked buns, sandwiches and wraps with fresh lettuce, 100% chicken patties, Lebanese falafels, peanut butter jelly sandwiches or banana splits—and worry not about burning a hole in your pocket.
The Basil & Bean Café (formerly known as Flamme Bois) in Sector 35 is offering all these munchies at just R99. What’s more is that you get two beers (only Kingfisher though) or two cups of coffee or three cups of tea @ R 99.
Brought forth by young entrepreneurs Zorawar, 20, and Gurfateh, 19, the idea behind the concept, they say, is to sustain on volume. “It’s how international fast food chains that offer pocket friendly food survive. Though the cost of raw food is on the rise, we believe we can do well by offering affordable and quality food to a lot of people!
Even a student can walk in with a R 100 note and enjoy a yummy meal,” says Zoravar.
The café, as many of us might not know, is a venture by the owners of Flamme Bois Bistro, Sector 7, who introduced the wood-fired oven pizza at their former venture in Sector 35.
“With the café, we have also introduced the concept of beer and wine with fast food. Every hour is happy hour here and we are open from 11 am to the time our last guest leaves,” they say.
About their future plans, with their father Karan Deep Suri (the man behind the concepts), they say, “There will be only one Bistro in a city and multiple fast food outlets under the B&B Co banner. Keeping the same in mind, we opened a new Bistro in Ludhiana recently. Now, the plan is to open another Basil & Bean Cafe in the inner market of Sector 8, Chandigarh, probably as a New Year surprise.”
