FIROZIAN: More than just a tea house

I discovered my love for Indian food when P & I were in Krabi, TH.
Hehehe! Not in India yet. 
P let me taste these kind of food so I could relate to what he often eat in UAE.
And viola! My taste buds love it.
Good thing there's quite a few restos here in Cebu that serves Indian food.
One of which is Firozian Indian Tea House.

I tell you this place is more than just a tea house.
They also serve yummy Indian food, too.

is a fried or baked pastry with a savory filling, such as spiced potatoes, onions, peas, lentils, ground lamb, ground beef or ground chicken. (wiki)

Usually eaten as a snack.
Their samosa is bigger than what I had before. ^_^

Php 60

Durum is a kind of wheat.

A huge shawarma, I tell you. 
If you're not starving, you got to share it. ^_^
K had this halved.
Veggie durum
Php 80
is a rice-based dish made with spices, rice (usually basmati) and chicken, mutton, fish, eggs or vegetables. (wiki)

I so so love biryani specially when mixed with yogurt. 
Chicken biryani
Php 180
One serving is good for 2-3 persons.

is a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes, fruit.
Php 70
This is a thick drink. So rich and not too sweet. Just right, for me.

You can have it flavored or just plain.

This is not the yoghurt I expected though.
Firozian's way is to blend the yoghurt with the fresh strawberries.

  1. Yum! Yum! Yum! Busoga bitaw nato ato hahahah :D

  2. Mao jd, Khon.
    Abot agtang ang kabusog. Ngcge ko handom sa makaon gni. nomm nomm

  3. I still say that this is what we have in Cebu that comes close to Sagada yoghurt. When I think Firozian, I think Sagada.

  4. Mike, we thought otherwise baya.
    Sagada's a bit sour diba. Firozian's version is creamy & liquidy. But dont get me wrong, yummy still.
    It's just that layo lng with Sagada's.

  5. Actually, there is a reason why I mentioned "comes close" because it has not at all paralleled Sagada's but would probably be the only one among perhaps undiscovered few "in Cebu" that offers pure cold yoghurt. Most other stores around town have it frozen.

    My personal review between the two:

    Sourness - pretty much the same (Firozian only tastes sweeter because i believe they mixed sugar during pasteurization.)

    Texture - Sagada's is more viscous as you are correct that Firozian's version is more liquid.

    Sourness and texture is very much dependent on the amount of time you allow it to sit at a specific temperature (pretty much like incubation).

    How do I know? Research and hands-on preparation. It is to me the most delicate food item to prepare if you had to do it with improvised equipment.

    My preference between Sagada's and Firozian's? Of course, the former. :D

  6. Mike, kabalo diay ka maghimo yogurt? Himoi mi please! Hehehe :D

  7. Lgi. nghunahuna gni ko basin si Mike ang tag-iya sa Firozian. Ahihihihi

  8. Try this out, Chicken (Fried) Biryani with masala sauce, papadum, sweet lassi, and vegetable salad sprinkled with lemon juice and salt. Chai later. :)

  9. bwhahahah! I dunno if they have those, wabs. Try namo next time. :D

  10. Magugustuhan to ni jikoy! Pramis!

  11. Glad to know mahilig din si Jikoy mo sa ganitong food. Kainan na!
