One of the favourite things of the people of this generation is to feel completely head over heels about fast food. Well who can blame them? There's nothing much to do in the city, other than going to a restaurant or a nice fast food joint and with all those classes, presentations and part time jobs in our way, we often don't have the time to eat decent meal. So that's where fast food saves the day.
The fast food scenario has grown a lot in the years. But some has accomplished to satisfy and be popular among the customers. And one of those is none other than Quick Bite. Though it has been a couple of since it opened but it is already very popular among the youth. It's a small food joint located in Shimanto Square, Dhanmondi. But don't judge its small outlook because the food there is mind blowing.
Mouth watering ingredients and toppings.
Unlike other restaurants, Quick Bite has a very selective menu to ensure quality food to the customers. Items on the menu are different types of sandwiches made from bbq chicken, grilled, beef and roasted beef. They cost around 130 to 160 Tk depending on whether you're going to order regular or special. Along with the sandwiches they also provide sugar cane juice and ice cream. The juice will cost 70 Tk and ice creams are regular 100 Tk and premium 150 Tk.
Another great thing about this food joint is there timing. It opens up at 2:30 pm, just in time for lunch and closes at 9:30 to 10:00 pm so that you can get a mouth watering sandwich to go on your way home. Their peak hours are mostly from the afternoon till 8:00-8:30 pm.
Quick Bite has lived up to the name fast food, because it is a take away eatery, as fast food was really meant to be. And they prepare the food really fast too so you don't have to wait a long time to get your stomach happy.
Students love the grilled beef and the BBQ slices.
People, especially the students come here often for those delicious grilled beef or the BBQ chicken slices placed between two fresh sandwich buns along with cheese, mayonnaise, tomato, onions, lettuce etc. So imagine after all those classes and lectures how would you feel if you can get a bite of this piece of heaven in a bun. And it's quite cheap so you don't have to save up your allowance for this.
