Iftar at Mirchi Cafe in Fremont

Melanie Wong | Oct 26, 200512:23 AM     10

Mirchi Cafe occupies the back corner of a strip mall set far back from the street. It bills itself as Indo-Pak fusion cuisine. The flat screen TV was tuned to Pakistani sports and the walls are decorated with photos of the subcontinent. Most of the families around me were chowing on (halal) hamburgers, cheesesteaks, french fries, milkshakes, pizza, scampi, and pasta.

During the month of Ramadan, Mirchi offers a complimentary Iftar plate. Tonight it was four freshly fried potato pakora and a pair of dates. My waiter said that there's more variety on the plate on the weekend. This was the first time I've had sriracha chili sauce with pakora. I liked the combination, so it will not be the last.

I had learned about Mirchi from reviews posted on the halal dining site, Zabihah.com. But I needed to read Mirchi's own website to learn its unique history.
