Fabindia brings to mind well designed furniture, fabrics, clothes and their classic look. Now imagine a setting of pleasant pastel shades of grey and blue, large windows and lush plants in long wooden plant holders on the wall. This is the tastefully done Fabindia CafÃ© complete with their Fab crockery, located in the laid back store in Delhiâs Vasant Kunj.
Fab CafÃ© is what you get when you marry healthy eating to innovative and inspired cooking. They use no refined sugar, no refined flour and no refined oils. Their cooking medium is ghee or cold pressed mustard and coconut oil. They use brown rice and their tasty chapattis are made with quinoa! Almost all their dishes are balanced with added vegetables. The presentation of every dish is fantastic and the flavours so amazing that you keep wanting more.
The fresh juices were a pleasant surprise with their natural taste and flavours, they have no added sugar. The kathal quinoa biriyani with mixed herbs (INR 450) was to die for, as were their Keral Fish Moilee (INR 420) and Grilled Fish with Fenugreek and Coriander Pesto (INR 380). The Mirchi ka Salan, that was served on the side, was bursting with flavours. If that was not enough, I was blown away by the Chocolate-Saffron-Cashew Ice Cream (INR 180) and the Seed Tart with Coconut Rabri Filling Topped with Fruit (INR 240) â by both the concept and taste. Every dish has an Indian twist.
All in all, Fab CafÃ© is a healthy gastronomical Indian food paradise. And the chef shared that they plan to challenge your taste buds with new dishes on their dynamic menu that will be change every now and then.
