||FuFa Fiesta in different cities.
|| dining out?
"Indian Hotel", "Hamza's", "Tawakkal" and "Idrees Cold Drink"
fine eateries -
at Bhendi Bazaar -
stones throw from the big Mazaar -
on the way to Chor Bazaar -
in east west lane - the entry to the lane is
across the road from Pathanwadi aka Piru Galli -
proceed west from Ibrahim Rahimtulla Road -
as you enter the lane on the left is Saifee
Ambulance Office -
proceed twentyfive meters beyond that point -
on the right is Tawakkal Sweets -
adjoining Tawakkal is "Indian Hotel"
a little ahead on the left is Hamza's.
you cant miss it if your nose is right -
the aroma of the food reaches you before
you can see the shop - what you see first
is the big tava with the ganji clad chef -
adjoining the stainless steel topped tables
which during the afternoon are used for
chopping and marinating and later double
up for dining (strictly no wining here!) -
beginners - Rolls (forget frankies forever!),
BaidaRotis and Senwitch.
intermediate - Bhuna with naan followed by rice
(hardboiled eggs and spicy aloo to go along).
advanced - Bheja, Gurda, Kaleja all deep fried
with spicy thick Brishta gravy all devoured
with round naan or FakiriPav.
Sheekh Kebob like you've never had it better
followed by Tikkas of so many kinds - Chicken,
Gosh, Kaleji, Kheeri, with lots of Pudina and
Pyaaz . . . . some firang items by 'popular'
demand have crept in and corrupted the menu
while helpless protesters like me shouted
ourselves hoarse (like pizzas, russian
salad rolls and what not!) the quality and
taste of these too is good but as out
of place as serious business on FUFA!
Diabetic's anathema -
sweets of all kinds -
especially the Maalpoa, and the
Firni (in the small clay plate)!
Finally on the way home buy 500 grams
(enough for a family) of Suterfeni
and dunk it in unsweetened warm milk
for fifteen minutes before consuming
at the next breakfast!
On the way out of the hoggers park -
stop at Idrees Cold Drink and have some
never before sodas too! buy a 1.5 liter
pack of Jeera drink from Surat
to carry home too!
