After refreshing tea tasting session at sublime we headed toward Fava. Couple of years back I've been to Fava. We have enjoyed their harissa fish and hummus. Chef Abhijit Saha's Fava a modern Mediterranean restaurant, serves freshest med food prepared from scratch. 

Tasting modern Mediterranean food in a upscale setting was a sort after experience. Chefs featured many modern Mediterranean dishes here like micro green salad, dozen mezze platter, kebabs and ravioli ending with a Arabic latte. 

Fava's Signature Micro Green Salad: This salad was prepared live at our table and I happen to record the entire preparation on video also posted a separate blog which is featured in this series. 

Edible Micro greens tossed with lettuce toasted almonds and cherry tomatoes dressed with a balsamic reduction and olive oil seasoned with salt and pepper garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve right away...

Non-veg Kebab Platter: consisting of grilled lamb, chicken and fish. Minced lamb marinated with onion, garlic, parsley, nutmeg and cumin formed into patty and grilled. Fish was marinated with lemon pepper and bayleaf and then grilled.  Chicken was marinated with parsley and garlic grilled with pickled vegetable and served hot. The kababs tasted excellent we did not eat the pita which was served along with the kababs just because all of us would end up full by the end of this tasting session. Over all nonveg platter was excellent.
Veg Kebab Platter: Vegetable kibbeh, mushrooms and broccoli, grilled panner. I was a huge fan of vegetable kibbeh from this platter it was crispy on the outside and was packed with vegetables non of the kebabs tasted the same all the kebabs were super tasty.

After a wonderful mezze and kebab tasting session they served us ravioli. These ravioli's are stuffed with sundried tomatoes and goat cheese served with a creamy butter sage sauce.

Fava Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato 



Rasovara is a paradise for many tourists and locals who folk to this mall. Rasovara offers a variety of delectable vegetarian dishes on their ever changing seasonal menu. Tourists get to experience many authentic Indian dishes on one plate while the locals come here to taste seasonal delicacies.



The thali consists of various starters, salads, beverages, mains and desserts. There is lot to explore at rasovara. Chefs prepare many regional dishes from Rajasthan and Gujarat. 

The portion size of each dish may look tiny and not filling I must warn you its a huge meal. Different curries, dhals, rotis and briyani will fill up the entire space in your tummy. 

At rasovara one can taste seasonal dishes for example during mango season they serve different mango based dishes every 15 days once the menu changes everyday there is a new dish on this thali. 

We tasted Dhokla pizza, papdi chaat, kaju curry, sindhi koki, kulhad biryani and apple jelabi on the menu. 


Dhokla Pizza: is constructed with a steam cooked lentil base topped with tomato ketchup, grated cheese and veggies these steam cooked cakes were not only tasty also very innovative.
