About Saffron Valley:
You may think that, without all the marketing hoopla, a new restaurant concept like Indian Street Foods would have a difficult time competing for business. But that isn’t the case. Saffron Valley has enjoyed growing popularity since opening in Feb 2011, earning both critic’s acclaim and the approval of a diverse clientele.
Urbanization and street food go hand in hand. Across the globe, street food has become an important part of daily life as local people find work outside their homes or villages. Street food is of particular cultural importance in India, where colonization by the British Empire compromised traditional Indian life. Street food gave pushcart vendors and their families a means of income as well as a vital cultural connection. Street food is still an integral part of Indian life and, though served from a bistro rather than a pushcart, Saffron Valley upholds this essential Indian tradition.
