DAC : Dhaka being a huge metropolitan that is growing each day- it is constantly updated in terms of all types of culinary features. Food related events are always happening- whether it's a food festival or the opening of a new restaurant. So it is obvious that almost every block in the city has a new restaurant almost every week or month.

Urban Spoon, a fast food restaurant is a new addition in this regard. This opened in September 2017. Fastfoods from different corners of the world are their prime attractions. The menu is an array of salads-n-soups-n-pastas-n-wraps. For appetizers, one can choose from Calamari, Tempuras, Sliders and Fries. These can be coupled with a soup like Urban Thai Soup or Seafood Clear Soup. Nasi Goreng, Peri Peri Chicken, Chicken Chili Mushroom, Taco, Spiced Grilled Chicken are some of the main dishes one can choose from. There is also Chowmein, Pastas, Wraps and Burgerst to Sate one's appetite.

To complete a meal there has to be a sweet touch. Tempting treats like Nutella Brownie, Red Velvet Cheese Cake and of course ice creams are the desserts to add a sweet note to a meal. Apart from the regular soft drinks, there are shakes and Lemonades and Mojitos to cool you down in this scorching summer heat. Blue Blugon and Vanilla Blugon-two very new drinks are offered by Urban Spoon. This is a fusion between a shake and a float and a fizzy drink. So this is one very new addition to the local culinary scene. And of course there is tea, coffee, frappe-without which a fastfood menu is incomplete.

The place opens at 12 noon and continues upto midnight. It is a place to let your hair down and be yourself. The entire place has a very casual beauty with a cosy and warm ambience. Being a rooftop dine-out (12th floor, Road 11 Banani, opposite the Pride showroom), it offers a splendid view of the city skyline. Urban Spoon can accommodate around 80 guests. It has an open dining space, beautifully done with hanging plants and stylish seating. The covered space next to it, has a kind of couch seating along with the regular ones. One can feast on the wonderful city view from this place.

Takeaways, outside caterings are also available. One can also have small family parties. Urban Spoon has around six different types of quite reasonable priced set meals. These have rice, chicken, chowmein, sweet and sour prawn and a couple of more popular items set as a combination.

Started as a venture of a bunch of school friends, Urban Spoon is becoming favorite among the young crowd because of its warm and welcoming ambience, combined with a wonderful view and a variety of foods, picked from different corners of the world.
