Enjoying traditional Bengali food with life & nature in Jahangirnagar University

If I ask a question that have you ever visit KFC? Someone may reply that yes I have visited KFC several times and other one may say I could not afford the cost of KFC so I was unable to take the test of KFC items. But I have an address of a KFC outlet which I can assure is affordable to everybody. Are you in confusion? I am not talking about Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) which is mostly familiar to the upper class people but Kader Food Centre (KFC) which located in Bot Tola of Jahangirnagar University. If you are craving for traditional Bengali food, take a tour in Jahangirnagar University where KFC along with more 35-40 restaurants are ready to offer you such delicious foods.
