Farzi Café, a place where traditional Indian food gets a quirky, modern touch. Using modern cooking styles and eye catching presentation, this wonderful place doesn’t fail to amaze. The elegant ambience and delicious food make this a completely satisfying experience.
At first you’re served these cute little Mishty Doi shorts, flavoured with a tinge of sweet strawberries with dry ice smoke coming out from the bottom, making it a grand start to the rest of the meal. These really refresh your palette.
We then had the Daal chawal Arancini. Now Arancini as you might know, are Italian risotto balls. But these guys at Farzi have renewed the whole concept by adding daal chawal instead of risotto to Arancini balls. Spicy and full of flavour, when had with those cute rolled papads and pickle taste devilishly good.
We then tried the Mini Raj Kachoris. Innovatively presented with chutney foam on top and a crisp okra salad on the side, as you break into this crisp kachori a medley of flavours flow out, sweet, sour and spicy.
Then came the Palak Paneer Quesadillas. One thing I didn’t enjoy that night were these quesadillas because the Palak paneer stuffed inside was quite bland. Probably a bit more salt and spice and that would have been a hit.
The best dish of the evening though was their Tandoor Margarita cheese Kulchas! Small little Kulchas stuffed with a spicy tomato and mozzarella cheese mixture, cooked to perfection in a tandoor had a brilliant texture. Bite into one of these and get transported to food heaven!
For the mains we tried their Benarasi Kofta and Paneer tikka with fresh naan.
The herb crusted tandoori paneer tikka served with a San Maranzo ( Silician tomato) makhani gravy when had with hot naan made for a beautiful meal too.
Coming to Farzi, you can’t just miss their innovative and lip smacking cocktails! The Farzi Apple Foamintini was the one I liked the best. Vodka with green apple, lime juice and elder flower syrup served on a martini glass with mint foam on top not only looked amazing but also tasted so so good! The lightness of the elder flower syrup and the sweetness of the green apple with the slight sour tinge of lime and the freshness of the mint syrup had me lost for words.
Another drink I’ll highly recommend is the Walky streets. Good old jagermeister served with homemade soda in quirky gesture glasses were a complete hit!
We ended our meal on a sweet note with their famous Parle-G cheesecake. Cheesecake sandwiched between two lovely Parle G biscuits served on a bed of thick and scrumptious Rabdi made for a kickass combination.
Even their Baileys lollipops were something I’d definitely come back for.
I had a really good experience overall with their lip smacking cocktails, delicious food and quirky ambience.
