What happens when you are treated by royalty? You get a taste of amazing hospitality and some brilliant cuisine. Trust the same when you visit any of the restaurant concepts started by the “Prince of Indian Cuisine”, Zorawar Kalra. Both he and his father, the illustrious Jiggs Kalra, have revolutionized Indian cuisine in a brilliant way by catering to almost all segments of the market. From opening the signature Masala Library by Jiggs Kalra, Dine in concepts such as Made in Punjab, Pa Pa Ya and the Farzi Café, the immensely successful father and son duo have made Indian cuisine, a gourmet experience.
So, when the Farzi Café opened in Connaught Place after a successful stint in Gurgaon, all food enthusiasts including me waited with anticipation as to what new gastronomical innovation was in store for us. This branch too brought in the usual ‘Zorawar Kalra’ swag. Located in E block of Connaught Place, this place is perfect to hang out for some brilliant drinks and delightful food on any day and time of the week.
The décor of this place is similar in concept to the older Farzi Café. It’s well spread out and has a charm of its own. A huge Bar greets you when you enter this place. Nicely lit up with interesting knick knacks thrown around, it surely is the central attraction. We also loved the interesting food quotes and knick knacks in this place. The wooden tables simply added to the charm of this place.
The food and drinks are truly top notch, signature Zorawar Kalra style. The menu available just wowed us. Everything we tasted from the Amritsari Fish and Chips, yummy Butter Chicken Buns, Braised Lamb Chops, the delectable Duck Samosa, was full of flavours. It is amazing how delicious the simple Dal Chawal Arancini tasted. Also worth mentioning is the Dal Makhani, Rogan Josh and the Mac and cheese balls.
The Zorawar Kalra brand has by now been extremely popular with Liquor lovers for their ‘Molecular experiments’ with their drinks. The first in here worth mentioning is beyond doubt the Farzi Apple Foamintini. The others including Chai-Pani, Three Muskeetear, Santa Bunta, Chuski Margarita, and Monkey Sour are must trys too.
Overall, the Farzi Café truly justifies the concept of ‘Molecular Gastronomy’. It is indeed, a place worth visiting again and again.
