Want To Eat Authentic Biryani From Hyderabad Or Sandesh From Kolkata Sitting In Another City? Ask Zomato
New Delhi: Zomato will now bring your choice of food you have been craving, from different cities. The food-delivery app has launched a new service called Intercity legends, which will allow users to order specific food items from different cities in India. It is currently piloting the new feature in Gurgaon and South Delhi. This means that only the people in Gurgaon and South Delhi will be able to place intercity orders, India Today reported.
Zomato co-founder Deepinder Goyal noted in a blog post that people can can “order and relish legendary dishes like baked rosogollas from Kolkata, biryani from Hyderabad, Mysore Pak from Bengaluru, kebabs from Lucknow, butter chicken from Old Delhi, or pyaaz kachori from Jaipur.” Your order will be delivered to your city via flight/road, therefore it could take around a day or so to reach. Goyal noted in the blog that the order can be reheated, and refried.
“We put together some of the best problem solvers and product builders at Zomato to find a way to bring popular dishes from cities across India to your doorstep. These culinary jewels are known to be the gastronomical must-haves of their cities. So much so that your visit to that city is incomplete without tasting them,” the blog read.
Zomato will also take cognisance of the quality of food. The specific dishes that can be ordered using the intercity legends services have undergone lab testing to ensure that the aroma, texture, and taste remain of high quality, the report added,
As for spillage issues, Goyal assures in the blog that food is freshly prepared by the restaurant and packed in reusable and tamper-proof containers to keep it safe during air transit. State-of-the-art mobile refrigeration technology preserves food without the need to freeze it or add any kind of preservatives. When you receive the order you can microwave, air-fry, or pan-fry the food before consuming it, the report added.
“A jewel hides in every nook and corner of India. With over 100 airports and a rich spread of the most iconic dishes that India has to offer, the sky is the limit to how big Intercity Legends can become,” Goyal said.
