A beautifully restored, turn-of-the-century villa right at the heart of Kolkata, Jhaal Farezi is a pleasant detour from the clamour of new-age restaurants. With a café at the ground level and dining on the first floor, this is something original. Sprawling outdoors, featuring an alfresco setting, is a visual delight! The inside bubbles with an awesome industrial kitsch flavour taking it to another level of design. The setting obviously demands the romance with the food of the bygone era. The menu predictably announces “retro cuisine with contemporary chic”. And this is complete with the Steamroller Fried Chicken, Prawn Cocktail, Mulligatawny Soup, good ol’ Fish ‘n’ Chips, Chicken Sicilienne, Bangers & Mash – The Kolkata Style, Anglo-Indian Ball Curry, Gobindo Bhog Khichudi, Monte Carlo, Aflatoon Halwa, Chocolate and Hazelnut Soufflé on offer.
