Doha: Lulu Hypermarket at Al Khor Mall is set for a unique Street Food Festival as part of Eid celebrations.
From today, the mall offers food opportunities — exotic cuisine to traditional fair; the virtually inexhaustible supply of new dishes and flavour — exploring the soul of the ‘Street Food’ — generally defined as the variety of sizzling ready-to-eat food prepared and sold by hawkers and vendors on streets or other public location for immediate consumption.
‘Street food’ is regarded as the first ‘fast food’.
An official from Lulu Management said that coupled with Eid Al Adha activities organised by Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) at the mall, Street Food Festival offers everything from the Middle Eastern favourites — pizza to meatballs to biriyani. It allows diners to eat out and enjoy new food at a lower cost at more convenience.
Many restaurants in the mall are joining in the Street Food Festival. Lulu has created a menu featuring street food from different destinations, including Thailand, Mexico, the Middle East, the US, India, Vietnam, and China.
QTA has chosen the mall as one of its destinations to hold cultural activities. From Tuesday, cultural shows such as Shaolin Martial Arts, Magic show, Traditional Parade, Lulu Caty, Carnival Samba, Over Boys, Chicago Boyz, Pink Panther, Carnival Dixi, Talking Friends and Bubble Show will be held from 4.30pm until 9.30pm.
In line with the festival season, Lulu outlets in Qatar have hosted a ‘Buy 2 Get 1 Free’ promotion on garments, saris, churidhars, ladies bags and footwear until October 20. Customers are entitled to the lowest priced item free when they buy three pieces of any of these items.
Latest collections of international brands and trendy range of fashion wear and footwear to suit all age groups are on display in view of the increased demands of customers.
Lulu has also set the stage for ‘Toy Fair 2013’, the first of its kind in Qatar. It offers all branded toys and characters at highly subsidised prices.
This promotion will continue until October 22. Promotions on all food items and electronics are also set at all Lulu outlets in Qatar.
