Farzi Café uses modern cooking techniques to serve Indian cuisine with Arabic and global influences.
Farzi Café is a popular haunt from Delhi that has now opened its doors in City Walk, Dubai. Farzi translates to ‘creating an illusion’ and that is exactly what Zorawar Kalra, the founder of this modern spice bistro wants the diners to experience.
The menu is extensive and can be overwhelming especially if you aren’t familiar with Indian food. The dishes are a combination of traditional Indian recipes with a combination of Arabic and global influences.
We tried a mix of dishes that were all prepared using modern cooking techniques and served in an innovative manner. The humble daal and chawal combination was given an Italian spin and served inside Aranchini balls. The deconstructed shepards pie was served on an Arabic style platter with wagyu beef, beetroot and mashed potatoes. Our sliders were brought out in a retro red tin box with galawti kebab and mint chutney filling.
We also tried the Arabic rendition of the quintessential Indian street food-pita golgappas that were accompanied by couscous tabbouleh, labneh and coriander water. All the dishes are served tapas-style and easily serve up to three people.
The décor is contemporary and although there is ample searing the place is quite packed. Farzi Café is redefining Indian cuisine and giving a whole new spin to traditional recipes with fancy molecular gastronomy techniques and modern presentation.
