Where’s The Food festival held at Frere Hall Karachi, is a mad cat out of the sack. The festival is hosted second time, at the same location, yet no lessons were learned. Almost all roads leading to the festival were jam packed, forming uncountable queues of cars. The road to entrance facing PACC was closed from near the Metropole turn hence making it all the more chaotic. No thoughts or planning to manage the rush of food lovers was done, no alternate traffic plans were introduced. Even the place ran out of parking areas and was quite a mismanaged and helpless site. Not to forget the valet service also couldn’t help the overload of visitors and were in a chaotic situation too.
Talk about the “We are sold” food kiosks. Most participating eateries ran out of stock too early! Others still serving had a compromised menu and long queues of hungry Karachiites.
Where’s The Food festival stops making sense to you when one buys a rs. 200 entry pass, WHICH IS NOT REDEEMABLE! All serving eateries have lesser than usual price quotes but with compromised quantities and taste!
Whats good in there for consumers when they are still paying high with that much of quantity! Yes making fool out of commoners is a game well played here!
I’d also mention the people who turn out in huge numbers to such festivals with zero tolerance and a twisted sense of respect for others! It wasn’t less than a fish market there!
10 thumbs down for a disorganised, full of hassle and a wasted food festival that is doing no good except for pulling money out of Karachiites pockets.
REALLY WHAT THE F***.
