#ChennaiRoundUp: Food Festivals Happening In The City This Week
There are very many significant things about the month of August, but there’s also no real reason to have elaborate food festivals other than to bring all the food lovers under one roof. None of these food festivals line up with festivals happening in the country, but they definitely celebrate the food of other nations. Whether it’s a satay food festival, giving you the best of vegetarian and non-vegetarian satays, or a street food festival from three different Asian countries, there’s something for everyone.
So plan the rest of your month around these great festivals and let us know if we’ve missed any!
