Treat yourself to the ultimate Parsi feast at Rustom's

Delhi doesn't have too many choices when it comes to authentic Parsi food but it surely has some great ones. Rustom's is one of the first names that pops into the mind of every food enthusiast when they think of Parsi cuisine. It has been a while since the restaurant shifted its humble base from Adchini and now manages the canteen of the Delhi Parsi Dharamshala on Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg. It is very conveniently located just a few steps from Exit Gate 1 of the Delhi Gate Metro Station (Violet line) and is deserving of a few brownie points.

My very first thought when I entered Rustom's Parsi Bhonu? Warm, lively, homely. A beautiful set up that clearly belongs in the 80s, high on aesthetic and even higher on character. At Rustom's, the god really is in the details. Tiny knick-knacks here and there come together to create an ambience fit for the mighty feast they have on offer. Take your time to flip through the extensive menu because you'll be tempted to try at least five dishes. To make the selection slightly easier for you, here's what Bhawna {my BFF and non-vegetarian companion for this meal} and I ordered for our brunch!











I had been craving for something fried and crunchy and decided to go for a very tempting-sounding Veg Russian Pattice. It was a vegetable and cheese patty coated with vermicilli, fried till the covering was golden and crisp like a wafer. On the side were a sweet and sour mint chutney and some onion springs tossed in red chilli and lemon. Loved everything that was going on on my plate, it felt like a more delicious and hearty version of the traditional vegetable cutlet. Next came Bhawna's Chicken Farcha, Parsi-style fried chicken coated in semolina. Her feelings too were mostly positive. We decided to wash our appetisers down with a Mint chaas and Raspberry Soda and were super happy with both.  For mains, we went for Veg Dhansak, one of the tastiest dals I've ever had with caramelised rice and veg kebab balls. The combination was perfect, the slight sweetness of the rice went wondefully with the spicy dal. My heart prompted us to go for a mawa cake or the popular caramel custard, but my tummy was too full to agree. Hope to try out more dishes and desserts from Rustom's lovely menu on my next visit--yep, I'm definitely going back!
