The magic of Farzi is perdurable. From Cyber Hub, Gurgaon to Connaught Place, it’s been an enchanting journey for anyone who’s ever visited Farzi Café. Molecular Gastronomy was just a distant dream in India and then one day it became a reality and took everyone by surprise; Farzi became the talk of the town and for all the right reasons. The innovative and incredible menu was one factor, the alluring atmosphere was another and to top it all, like a cherry on the cake, their hospitality was astonishing.
My visit to Farzi Café, Connaught Place was a memorable and pleasant one. As soon as I entered, I was blown away by the look and feel of this place. It’s one of those places that you just cannot miss out on. I sat down in one corner and decided to order a drink. Our table attendant was an expert, he knew exactly what drink would be best suited for each and every person.
I tried the following dishes and drinks:
Chuski Margarita: Margarita, which is otherwise my drink, was served with a wonderful twist. The flavor too was new and refreshing. It had tequila, kacha aam and some lime juice. The chuski definitely added to the experience. Probably the best Margarita I’ve had till date.
Kala Jamun Banta: They have an amazing variety of Bantas, which are of course served in the banta bottle. I decided to have the kala jamun banta, which is alcoholic. Firstly, the colour was beautiful and next it tasted great.
Mac & Cheese Pakora: The first dish to arrive at the table was this one, and with the first bite, I was blown away. Just the perfect start to what was ahead. I honestly can’t get over it.
Dal Chawal Aranchini: Now who would have thought that dal chawal could be served in this form. Such is the charm and metamorphosis of Farzi. Yet again, a delicious dish.
Tandoori Soya Chops: In recent times, soya dishes have become my hot favourite and there’s nothing better than a tandoor soya chop. Lightly marinated and overly delectable.
Tandoori Paneer Salad: Quite an unconventional dish, out of the modern menu of Farzi, it was mouth watering. The paneer tikka pieces in themselves were delightful and went so well with the lettuce and sundried tomatoes.
Milky Way: No one can beat the theatrics of Farzi and the other restaurants under the Jiggs Kalra group. And this dessert clearly portrays the drama and excitement of something so unique and subtle.
Bailey’s Lollipop: Just the look and feel of this fabulous dessert is enough to tempt one to order it.
And yes, even before going to Farzi, I had a feeling I would have a great time and a fantastic meal and it just got confirmed! Going back super soon…!
