WHAT THE HECK IS
Well, we can go on and on, but when we asked our customers, they said:
"Freshly made, desi wraps delivered in super quick time. That's Faaso's. We haven't
spotted any beautiful waitresses there though, just so that you know what to expect."
Faaso's was born in Pune circa 2003 out of a late night conversation (not dry, of
course, and hence we didn't remember the next morning why we had called it Faaso's).
As you can see, we are lousy writers, our pedigree in food was nothing better -
we looked back 5 generations and did not find anyone who had ever run a restaurant
in our family tree.
Probably it helped, as we made just the stuff that we liked and kept it like that
all the while - fresh and desi wraps and rolls. Today we have more than 30 different
types of wraps flying off our shelves (read Tawa). And, a kidnapping of some local
Lucknowi chefs (which we had nothing to do with), has added a choice of authentic
dum, veg and non veg biryanis to our menu. No artificial flavours, no added colours,
no frozen stuff (we saved some money on freezers), no cutting corners (we never
learnt it). Everything freshly made to order, everything hot. A typical order for
a wrap at Faaso's sounds like:
"A chicken tikka, medium spicy wrap in whole wheat with no onions, extra cheese,
no mayo, double egg, cut in half" - and you thought only cappuccinos were made to
We don't like to brag (ok, all braggers say that) but we were the first to start
taking orders on Twitter. So all you have to do is 'tweet to order' a wrap and we
will home (or office) deliver it to you, wherever you are. As we say 'Wraps on the
run'. And our new store at Mumbai domestic airport allows you to just tweet us with
your order and a delivery time, and we'll get your wraps at the arrival/departure
gate. 'Wraps on the run-way!'
We are now 62 outlets strong. After Pune and Mumbai, we recently ventured out to
the crazy world of Bengaluru. But since we too are a bit crazy, Bengaluru welcomed
us with great warmth. See, we have started babbling like always. Point of the matter
is, you wonderful Puneites, Mumbaikars, Bangaloreans, we remain ever thankful to
you for loving us, forgiving our mistakes and in general, giving us a chance."
