Restaurant Review: FAVA

If you are searching for a change of taste while in Bangalore, the recent addition to the chain of restaurants at UB City, Fava can be the best option. Tired and hungry after going around the palatial mall, you can have a nice and cool supper at the wonderful restaurant.

Mediterranean restaurant as they like to call themselves, Fava offers a wide range of platters, though they specialize in Lebanese and Italian cuisine. You can find a wide range of menus to choose from, ranging from Greek salads, yogurt chicken soups to grilled chicken and of course to end with a varied type of desserts.

Though a bit in the higher range, a one time visit to the restaurant is a must.

Lotiya Vada (Bombay Duck Fritters)

Fish is like a part of the Bangali society, an integral part of the Bengali culture and cuisine, something indispensible. There can’t be a meal completed without the serving of a fish curry or at least a fried fish. But with our generations getting pretty lazy of cooking fish (rather the task of entering the kitchen) or too busy with the other important things in life; having fish has become a run to the nearest restaurants.

Bombay duck or lottiya is very popular among all other fishes. There are many ways loitta is cooked in different households, but apparently the lotiya bora being the most popular one.

Sewaiyan Payesh (Sweet Vermicelli Pudding)

After a long unwanted break, I am back with another recipe. Just to make all the Cook Like a Bong fans happy here’s a sweet preparation to make you happy.

Vermicelli payes, or vermicelli pudding is very easily made. It takes little time, and no hustle to prepare.

The sweetness of the pudding and the softness of the vermicelii noodles make this pudding a very exotic dessert. Enjoy it hot or cold.
