There is an inherent attraction to illusions, we love to see things that have something fake, something attractive, something catchy, and at Farzi there are options that would definitely make you feel #Farzified. The third outlet of Farzi which recently opened, in the buzzing mall of High Street Phoenix, Lower Parel.
The outlet has a beautiful, romantic ambience in the hue of brown, the wooden work and minor carvings on the stairs, the lite logo of Farzi on the walls. The stacked bar on the right and the comfortable seatings on the ground floor and a level above, makes it perfect to #GetFarzified.
We started with, Litchi Panna Desire, the perfect flavors of Litchi with a lemon leave garnish, makes for a perfect refreshing drink.
Grenny Mint Royal: Clear Green apple base with a foam and a garnish of mint leaves makes for a great mocktail. This is highly recommended for its taste and flavors.
Next, we called for, Corn Soup: the cream corn chowder had chicken threads and Bhutta fritters (more like Kurkure) as garnishing, was truly delectable.
Tempura Fried Prawns: Tiger Prawns are served with Nimboo infused air as the garnish; the prawns had balanced taste and flavours for sure.
Baby Lamb Tikka; The tikkas were tender, perfectly marinated in Indian Spices served with green chutney and pickled onion, garnished with radish and Mayonnaise.
Amritsari Fish and Chips; The boneless chunks of fish are served with potato wafers on one side and mustard sauce on the other, flavourful for sure.
In mains, I tried Shawarma Biryani: The Shawarma flavoured Biryani had Biryani rice at the bottom with chicken chunks placed on a vertical spit representing the traditional Shawarma stand. The Biryani was cooked thoroughly and was totally delicious.
Last but not the least, Parle G Cheese Cake: Cheesecake is stuffed between two Parle G biscuits and served on the bed of Rabdi, the rabdi was really good, but the Parle G Cheese Cake was quite ok in taste, it was garnished with few gems to give it the colour.
Overall, Farzi Café, hub for twisted Indian cuisine, has culinary art meets the alchemy of modern presentations and cooking techniques.
