Spring brings in a bevvy of good tidings, and one of our favourite reasons to celebrate the season is just around the corner — it’s almost Jamshedi Navroze! If you haven’t ordered an authentic Parsi meal to celebrate with yet, this is your last chance to do so. With most orders coming to a close this weekend (although you may be lucky enough to get something off regular menus on the day itself, we wouldn't leave that to chance), you should get started if you want to dig into some Pulao Daar, scoop up some Lagan nu Custard or dive into a plate of Patra ni Macchi. We love the food these caterers whip up; get in touch so you can take your pick off the special menus too!
DELECTABLE DELICACIES @ GODIWALA CATERERS

Why we love it: Hands down one of the best caterers in the city, you can’t get more authentic than this! We love everything Tanaaz whips up, but the Sahs ni Macchi in particular is a must-have in our books.

FLAVOURFUL FEAST @ BHONU
What’s on the menu: With non-vegetarian combinations for two people, one of the options on Bhonus special menu caught our attention in particular. With Chicken Berry Pulav, Khatto-Mittho Kheemo Sali, Sahs ni Machi, Tambota per Eeda, Gajar Mewa no Achar and Mitho Ravo or Caramel Custard. All the four combinations are priced at `1,900.
Why we love it: When we first tried the food from Rashna Maneckshaw’s kitchen, it was the delicious Dhansak that caught our eye, but there’s nothing quite like the Mitho Ravo and Caramel Custard. Good luck picking just one!
