Another outlet of the restaurant chain Fat Belly located opposite Commerce College was launched recently. This is the third restaurant under the Fat Belly brand after Dighalipukhuri and Uzan Bazaar.
Two engineer-turned-entrepreneurs, who were working with top multi-national companies in Mumbai and Goa, came back to Guwahati to start Fat Belly early last year. ‘We are very happy with the response from food lovers and this is the reason we added the third restaurant. With this, we are enriching the dining experience, keeping in mind people opting for quick-bites as well as lunch and dinner. Also, the new location will enhance our free home delivery service,’ said Dhiraj Deka, one of the co-founders.
The newest outlet is the biggest among all the three properties with seating space for around 75 guests. Popular among the foodies for their special varieties of momos, the restaurant chain has now added Thai cuisine to their menu. Speaking about the Thai menu, co-founder Parixit Bhattacharjee said, ‘We wanted to offer variety to our guests. The Thai menu is beautifully curated by our chef to provide value for money and a unique Thai experience. Besides starters and a variety of rice and noodles, special Thai curries will surely excite the food lovers.’ Fat Belly offers 48 varieties of momo besides lip-smacking starters, main course and combos – available both for vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
Dhiraj and Parixit started Fat Belly restaurant at Dighalipukhuri in March 2017. The engineer duo, along with their third partner Manjita Kalita Chowdhury then opened the second outlet at Uzan Bazaar in November of last year. ‘We are happy that with time we are able to offer a better experience to our guests. Our momos are the talk of the town,’ said Manjita Kalita Chowdhury who brings in 15 years of experience in the catering space. Strengthening the team, Aditya Bhattacharjee joined the Fat Belly team for the Commerce College outlet. Aditya brings rich experience from the IT and banking sector.
