With people from around the world coming to Russia since the football World Cup began, a couple from Kolkata is making news for their eateries in Moscow. Prodyut and Suman Mukherjee have been running two eateries—Talk of the Town and Fusion Plaza—that has been delivering delicious traditional Indian cuisine in Moscow for the last 27 years.
Not only are they expanding the appeal of Indian cuisine in Moscow, but also serving butter chicken, kebabs and a rich vegetarian spread at a 25% discount for customers with Fan IDs, which are required to watch World Cup matches. The kicker, however, comes with news that these restaurants will serve free dinner for Indians in Moscow if the Argentinian team lifts the trophy on July 15.
In a recent study published by Cutting Edge Events, which is FIFA’s official sales agency, India is among the top 10 nations where most match tickets were bought.
“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the foot-fall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” says Prodyut.
