Fava’s Menu Gets A Makeover
The new menu at Fava created by Chef Abhijit Saha is a selection of authentic dishes drawn from a range of Mediterranean cuisines including Italian, Greek, Lebanese, Turkish and Moroccan.
Fava serves up a mix of light and fresh salads and introduces the live micro green salad. This is a signature creation of Chef Abhijit Saha where three varieties of micro greens are presented live on the table. Other ingredients of the salad include arugula, lettuce, cherry tomato, parmesan, toasted almond, balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. The salad is prepared live on the table either by diners or by the server making each salad unique, fresh and beautiful.
The flavours of the Mediterranean can be experienced in the new a la carte menu with the reinterpretation of mezzes and appetizers such as salmon and avocado hummus and truffled tenderloin carpaccio, in addition to a dozen mezze and crispy calamari. The use of local and artisanal ingredients can be found through the menu especially in the Middle-Eastern kebabs and grills, like sumac and chilli prawns and chicken souvlaki. The artisanal and creative pastas, pizzas, and risottos will get a new facelift with quatro stagioni pizza, Turkish minced chicken pizza, orecchiette pugliese pasta and angel hair with seafood pasta.
