Whether you’re an established vegan or experimenting with Veganuary, the brand-new Vegan menu at Farzi Café, Dubai is one that you must try.
The brainchild of restaurateur Zorawar Kalra, Farzi Café has been making waves in Dubai since it started its first outlet at City Walk Dubai. Now with an additional outlet at MOE, located strategically next to the cinema, it has much more to offer to the discerning public of Dubai who are spoilt for choice.
Their prolonged success is probably due to a number of factors: imaginative twists on classic recipes, the odd molecular classic, an exceptional variety of mocktails, reasonable pricing, and overall an amazing experience.
Recently they have launched their Vegan menu which promises to deliver all that the clientele is used to and much more.
It begins with a piquant tasty tomato rasam which is a green pea noodle soup with freshly ground spices. The noodles made from fresh green pea paste are added to the hot rasam that is served making it an interesting dish with a burst of flavours. The starters comprise of tandoori wild mushrooms with saute pepper or the tandoori aloo featuring a tangy raw mango glaze.
Mains on offer include an aubergine steak moussaka with sesame peanut curry – healthy, flavorful and nourishing, a traditional South Indian pan tossed mix of summer vegetables infused with the Asian yellow curry ‘Khao suey’ – an innovative twist on the Burmese delicacy bursting with authentic flavours and the humble power nut poha with sauteed asparagus – a tasty and nutritious take on the simple and heartwarming dish of poha.
The meal is rounded off with a vegan almond kheer that is delicious and the perfect ending to the sumptuous meal, with its thick, rich consistency and a wonderfully nutty flavor.
