ITC Maurya organizes yet another super delicious festival at The Pavilion, and this time it’s one that brings back a lot of memories for me. Parsi Food Festival, named Jaamva Chalo Ji. The head chef for this festival is Chef Pervez Patel from the most exceptional Parsi restaurant in Mumbai- Ideal Corner in Fort. The festival held an all the more special place in my heart because of Ideal Corner. Multiple afternoons of mine have been spent at Ideal Corner when I was living in Mumbai- relishing Parsi dishes and getting food that tasted lip-smacking but as close to home-cooked food as possible. Getting all of that back while talking to Chef Pervez, I don’t think anybody was looking forward to the food more than I was. This 10-day long festival is on till the 29th of May, so go and get your share of Parsi goodness soon!
A typical Parsi restaurant will have such hilarious quotes, which by the way, should be at every restaurant! The same had been replicated at The Pavilion too. There was a makeshift corner that consisted of all things Parsi- paintings, an old motorbike, a carrom board with a wooden stool, and artefacts that were just like what you find in Parsi homes. A beautiful corner that was!
