For a quick bite
If you are hungry and want something in a jiffy grab a frankie which is now available at White House building (next to Lifestyle, Begumpet).
ON THE MOVE: An ideal takeaway.
A FRANKIE would automatically remind you of a yankie - merely because of the rhyme.
This apart, frankie is a food item - something which can be had as a quick bite or even as a small meal.
Quite a few will claim that the frankie is akin to the kathi roll. For the uninitiated a frankie is a yummy naan or roti with a yummy filling - veg and non-veg.
It is ideal for a takeaway. Frankies have come closer to you - i.e. in the city thanks to Tum Yum Innovisions who have opened their first outlet in White House Building (next to Lifestyle).
Ravi Khandelwal of Tum Yum visions decided to expose the Hyderabadis to this snack. "We have plans to expand and bring in more outlets in course of time," he says.
Frankie is a registered trademark of the Tibbs Group. Created as it was after a year of experimenting by Amarjit Singh Tibb who was fascinated by a Lebanese preparation of pita bread with stuffing.
When frankies (named after the West Indian cricketer Frank Worrell who was then leading the West Indian side to India) launched in Mumbai it was readily accepted.
This frankie is sold from over 60 outlets in Mumbai, Pune and Chennai.
The first outlet in Hyderabad (it's more like a takeaway unit) of Tibbs Frankie was opened at White House building (next to Lifestyle, Begumpet) recently.
Frankies made in a central kitchen are finished and served in this small outlet. The varieties served are veg, veg cheese, paneer and cheese in the veg section and egg, tawa chicken, chicken tikka and mutton in the non-veg section.
What is heartening is the price. While the veg and egg frankie are priced at Rs. 20, the other three veg ones and tawa chicken cost Rs. 25 and the chicken tikka and mutton costs Rs. 30. The frankie has a special masala.
Besides frankies, the stall also has grilled sandwiches in the veg and non-veg section (the prices depend on the layers of cheese one in the layers).
"We decided to introduce this to give some variety. In future we are also planning Tikka, Curry and Biryani - a combo. Subsequent outlets will be open at Prasad Imax, Food Court, MPM Mall, Qahwa (road no 36, Jubilee Hills) in the next three months. Further we also plan to sub franchise units in the twin cities and Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam as well," says Ravi Khandelwal.
As of now remember to check out the frankie when hunger pangs hit you. For further details contact: 23077346, 98490-17791.
