For some restaurants, talking about their concept is just as important as describing their food and ambience. TFIF or The Future Is Female in Rajouri Garden, is one such place. The restaurant was ideated and created with one key theme in mind- women empowerment, and that is seen across different elements of the place. They have tried to create job opportunities for women by employing an all women staff (except for a few males in the kitchen), from the waiters, ushers to the bartenders and managers. Moreover, they have tried to employ more freshers and train them on different aspects of running and managing the restaurant, so they are not only creating job opportunities, but also building skills. To ensure safety of their staff, they even provide late night cab services to drop them all back home safely. They also have their line of merchandize which has their branding, and a portion of the revenues from this merchandize line is donated to an NGO.
The ambience of the place is also very different from its dim-light, blaring music neighbors. It uses natural light and green elements to brighten up the place and give it a fresh, lively vibe. The menu also comprises some nice fusion dishes, organic cocktails and delicious baked goods from their in-house bakery.We started off with the Palak Patta Chaat that had very lightly battered, crisp spinach leaves, topped with fresh curd, mint sauce and saunth, along with some sev for crunch and pomegranate seeds for that added flavor. The Chicken Popcorn was also a nice little snack to munch on, and its outer covering was really crisp and not at all oily.
The Thai Spring Roll is a must-have dish here- the filo sheet covering was super thin and crispy, and the filling had delicious Thai flavored vegetables that were seasoned to perfection. The tangy chili sauce served alongside was great as well. The Chicken Too Crispy was another great dish made with juicy, moist chicken strips that were coated with filo and deep fried to get a nice crunch, and served with chipotle sauce.
For mains, we went with the Paneer Longlata, a lovely dish with cottage cheese sandwich filled with green chutney in chef’s special gravy which was thick and creamy. The Laal Maas had tender mutton pieces in a spicy gravy. We had these dishes with nicely made lachcha paranthas.The Ginger-Bread Mojito and Kala Khatta mocktails that we had with the meal were really nicely made and had just the right amount of sweetness.
The desserts at TFIF are really nice- the Key Lime Mousse was light and airy and had a lovely lemon tang, and the Gluten Free Brownie was gooey and soft, and was served in a chocolate ball along with some vanilla ice-cream.TFIF is the place you’d like to go with friends and family where you can enjoy a good conversation along with a good meal.
