Keventers milkshake-brand owner Sohrab Sitaram has launched Fat Tiger, a tea shop and dimsum franchise in India’s Delhi, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and Karnal.
Sitaram says Fat Tiger introduces popular international flavours to the territory as well as a mid-market dimsum offering in a market where the cuisine is only associated with either street food or premium outlets. It plans to open more than 1000 stores throughout India.
“The momo and dimsum preparations take inspirations from spice levels from Meghalaya, Nagaland, Mizoram, regions of Sikkim, and Arunachal Pradesh,” read a statement from the brand. “It is also influenced by Asian countries like China, Thailand, Nepal and Myanmar.”
Fat Tiger serves tea reusable cups and dimsums with tongs instead of disposable chopsticks. It also uses double-walled paper straws and green takeaway bags.
