Hi-Tea at Village

village.jpg
Wednesday afternoon: we randomly decided to have hi-tea at VIllage Salt & Pepper.

Village recently re-opened (early June) after being shut down for renovation since August 2005. I have always had good experience at Village. There used to be a small pier and it was my favorite place to have dinner. I didn’t check out if it still exists there or not. As for the hi-tea, I think it was reasonably okay experience and it’s reasonably priced at 225 Rs per head. (starts at 430 pm)
Some of the items in the buffet were:
Samosas (vegetable, qeema)
Finger Fish
Pastries
Pakora
Qulfi
Beef Seekh Kebab
French Fries
Guddiya kay baal (cotton candy)
Patties
Shaami Kebab

The food wasn’t the most delicious, everything was moderately tasty except for the Beef Seekh Kebab which were really cooked well and tasted yummy.
As for the weather outside, it was partly cloudy and it helped to have a pleasant experience, wasn’t too hot.
I would rate the whole experience 6.5 out of 10

    No intention to spoil your mood and this thread but did you ask permission for the ladies before taking snap.I know the picture is not so clear but just find against ethics to take snaps without persmission.Atleast my family won’t like it at all.

    Adnan Siddiqi: I did not ask for permission from no one because my intention was to capture restaurant and not the individuals themselves and if I had felt any resistance, I would not have taken them.

    I concur with Adnan.
    Also,these are some awfully ugly chairs, in fact the ugliest I have seen in a while.

    ANON..you are in luck..the chairs are not on the menu..LOL..
    aLSO IllusionFS…they had lot of paintings representing pakistan. Did they get new ones or not?

    LOL. Yes Yo YO, they are not on the menu (thank God for small blessings) but – their ugliness would so offend me that I would be quite likely to lose my appetite:) Of course, they seem to go well with the rest of the garish decor and do I see a guy wearing a bright green outfit?
    IllusionFS, thanks for putting up these pictures, good entertainment value.

    Yo Yo: I didnt happen to see any paintings.. I wasnt paying much attention.

    Original-Anon: By the way, the chairs arent ugly. You can better decide when you see them in person & yes one of the waiters wearing a shocking green colored outfit (gaon ka libaas).

    Just a thought… isn’t candy floss called “burhya kay baal”and not “gurya kay baal”?

    @Khurram F.:

    Yes, that is correct. Never heard anyone refer to it as a doll’s hair. Also, a piece of trivia: in American English it’s called ‘cotton candy’.

    Wow, Rs. 225 per head for hi-tea with those ugly chairs is not cheap
