Now here is the Farzified experienced of mine at Farzi Cafe
Being a Chaat lover by heart and head, The Raj Kachori with crispy shells, tangy pumpkin and sweetened yogurt with crisp okra salad and chutney gets Farzified. The puff was stuffed with the sweetest of yogurt and it was only sweet joy of happiness in my mouth and i wonder how did they get the mixture into it, totally Farzi Style!!
Cheese Chilly Kulcha i would rather say Kulchas got farzified too over here, presented like a Pizza style with cheese and vegetables and topped with bloody red ketchup. So delicious and so artistic. My husband is in big trouble now has i made him promise to get me those cutlers!! You better hurry i cannot wait to get my dishes served on it.
I cannot imagine Chaai which we call in India for Tea can me more tastier and merrier to look at. The Chai Soda, kadak chai concoction with flavorful tea spices, sumac berries at the bottom and topped with soda, so gorgeous yet so delicious!!
Ananas Orbits, A Virgin Pina Colada muddled with the freshness of tender coconut and pineapple, done with coconut flavored fume is served in these stylish cat’s tail glasses. The ‘tail’ acts as a straw, which has been filled with Pina Colada Caviar, This acts like a bubble tea with style!!
Vimnojjieo, this sweet and sour drink not only looks good but taste fabulous too, Its a Vimto Syrup blended with sprite, lemon and mint with crushed ice.
Tempura Fried Prawns elevated to fine-dining status with a flavorful foam, tossed with chilli mayonnaise and topped with tobiko, so playful yet so very gorgeous for the eyes and delicious for the belly.
”Why this Kolaveri Kolaveri Di” Masala Coke gets Farzified specially for me, thank you for introducing me to this , with all the chaat spices and soda with the playful foam, this is my drink of the day.
Deviled Quail Eggs, Eggs out of a bottle, only Farzi Style!! Fried Quail Eggs comes on a bed of Chicken keema and labneh sprayed on it and garnished with cute lil pine nuts, so classy and so very delicious.
Amarbi slider, soft home made black buns, how gorgeous they look!! Layered with Chilli Prawns and garnished with pine nuts, i felt like taking it home and place at as my decors in my kitchen. How poshy they and luminous they look sitting on the wood chic chest.
This could not get more better, Curry Leaf Margarita, sweet and sour curry leaves with a hint of a little spice, the glass is half as i drank it and then clicked it, couldn’t resist at all.
Mutton Shawarma Briyani, a good Farzi fight over here, mutton placed in skewers like shawarma style on a bed of flavored briyani with labneh spread, how cool that can be. Presented on a wooden musical from ancient times. The lamb tasted delicious as it was cooked for whole 8 hours, flavors were pouring all over it.
Cayenne Prawns, juicy and tender prawns tossed with pepper, onions and curry leaves on a beautiful bright bed of lemon fried rice garnished with prawn wafers. So very light yet so extremely delicious.
Khou Suey, With black rice puffs, nut crackers and vermicelli fried this Burmese gets Farzified. The curry is beautifully done with Coconut Milk with Summer Vegetables, so coconuty and so very gorgeous for the eyes. Served with a bowl of Steamed Rice.
As it says LIFE IS UNCERTAIN EAT YOUR DESSERT FIRST, so it should have been here for me, all Farzified Indian sweets gets a totally illusion form out of it.
Rasmalai Tres Leches, This is traditional rasmalai revamped and served sandwiched with layers of very delicious carrot cream. It was topped with a sugar crystal rose petal net and laid on a bed of delightful saffron milk with almonds and pistachios. Lucky enough my Hubby is does not have a sweet tooth so i got it all by myself.
Jelebi Caviar, so jelebi done in a caviar form, isnt that amazing !! totally fusionised with the batter to give a caviar look laid on a bed of sweetened milk and a playful flavored foam, it taste real good with the foam, believe me.
The experience was amazing , and our host Cherian was someone who knew the menu top to bottom, Mr, Shivankit, never met such a passionate foodie before, only he can go on and on talking about food.
