BE FEARLESSLY AUTHENTIC.. 

Rustom’s Parsi Bhonu 

Entering the two authentic places of Rustom’s, you can instantly harbor images of the warmth and tradition of a Parsi home. These places  can transport you to another world where the feeling of meeting uncle cyrus coming from behind the lace curtains, can excite you in a flash. This bona- fide experience showcased with the use of different elements, in creating a replica of her own house and a British tea house, Kainaz Contractor has done an exceptional job in bringing a pukka feel to the customers. The finesse with which all the distinctive elements have been pulled together into a congenial whole, is really something commendable. Named the places after her father, ‘Rustom Contractor’ and employing her mother’s recipes in the food that is served, she began the journey of opening Rustom’s with the blessings of both her parents.

FOR A RIDE ON UNCLE RUSTOM’S SCOOTER 

The rides first stop is in the midst of Delhi’s Aurobindo Marg, first floor restaurant Rustom’s Parsi Bhonu. Started in the early 2015, this restaurant has made it’s mark as the best custom-made experience of Parsi’s culture and tradition. Setting a great example as a small space capturing all that it needs to provide a fine dining experience, this place has it’s own aura of an old school design. The ornamental and beautiful characteristics are something completely different from the bare, monochrome looks of the Mid- century and Scandinavian interiors of today’s time. Enjoying the bumpy ride of the narrow lanes, the next stop is the Rustom’s cafe and bakery which was recently opened in Khoj Studios, Khirki Extension, Delhi. Having the colonial british touch, the place is perceived as a colorful British tea house with a mix of Parsi’s memorabilia. To enjoy the ride, remember the best is yet to come.

TO LIVE LIKE THE DIKRAS AND DIKRIS

Just when the Dikras and Dikris get off to their first destination, there is a sudden vibe that encaptures them in their surrounding interiors. Known for the best authentic Parsi food, this place doesn’t lack behind in their stylized and simplified decor. The heavy teak wood in their round tables and captain’s chairs and the cement heritage tiles, enhances the Parsi touch the most. With the restored antiquity crockery cabinet, the vintage grandfather clocks, the lace curtains, the folding screens and the creamy yellow walls, the place is transformed into an eclectic Parsi paradise. The photographs framed all around the place is one of the many elements that gives the place it’s playful and innovative look. Kainaz personalized attention and the background music of old classics uplifts the mood and provides the place it’s overall charm.

The second destination’s neutral backdrops, combined with gorgeously colored floral patterns done by Vintage Nutters differ from the first destination as this one is a stylish blend of both British and Parsi elements. This is a perfect place to chill and relax with a sip of coffee and a choice of pastry or a bombay snack unlike the authentic Parsi dining experience of Rustom’s Parsi Bhonu. The cafe has beautiful and stylish planter chairs with flowery patterns on the fabric and the ceramic plates with arabic designs placed on the neutral walls along with all the antique frames from Chor bazar, Delhi, giving the place it’s stylish mainstay. The glass wall on the entry side provides sufficient day light to lit the whole place. The most interesting element in the space are the small windows with pink lacey curtains giving the view of a small Delhi lane. The shelfs in one corner has antique metallic piggy banks, ceramic potlucks, tea kettles and plastic foliage setting a tone of mesmerizing British ambience. Satisfying the customer with amazing food and attracting interior, Rustom’s has made Houssup a fan by making it to our Feature Friday
