Helmed by Zelmai and Farida Ayubi, a husband-wife duo and their children, Kutchi Deli Parwana is a family affair. It all began back in 1987, when Zelmai and Farida Ayubi fled Afghanistan with their five children and arrived in Australia. Twenty-two years later in 2009, they decided to open their restaurants in partnership with their children who have led the modern direction of the business. Connected with sibling sit-down restaurant Parwana on Henley Beach Road, open for lunch and dinner, together the family-owned business have created a new understanding of Afghan cuisine in Australia. In 2016, Parwana‘s Eggplant dish banjaan borani was listed by Gourmet Traveller as one of 50 dishes that defined Australian dining.
At Kutchi Deli Parwana, daughter Durkhanai and siblings can be often found front of house, with menu led by mother Farida Ayubi. Not only one of the East Ends best lunch dining destinations, they also extend to catering events embedded within the local community. From their pop-up kiosk during WOMADelaide Festival, to sticky rice dish for Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
Now offering a breakfast menu that includes a vegetarian option with Afghan style eggs cooked with onion and tomato, slow cooked beans, fresh naan and rose petal harissa sauce — served with stove-top Middle Eastern sweet coffee. Food for the divine.
