The Tourism Department plans to open ‘Foodie Wheels’ restaurants in 20 main tourist locations in Kerala. Launching the classification and certification of hotels under the guidance of the Responsible Tourism Mission at Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday, Tourism Minister of Kerala P.A. Mohamed Riyas said that ‘Foodie Wheels’ would follow the model of the one set up at Vaikom, where a KSRTC double-decker bus has been converted into a restaurant.
The Minister stressed the fact that economic feasibility and employment generation are the other specialties of this project. He added that old bridges not used for traffic any more would be converted into food streets in collaboration with the Public Works Department.
The Minister also launched an online portal to submit applications for various schemes of the Tourism Department.
