Geogy Chacko is the owner and chef of Far Eats Cafe, a fusion bistro located in lower Queen Anne. Named as a play on geographic familiarity, Far Eats Cafe embodies the far east cusine of India that is well-known by Geogy. In lieu of his journey as a young immigrant to the Pacific Northwest, Geogy has used his four decades of culinary experience to shape and evolve a menu that highlights his expertise and passion for food. His current venture, Far Eats Cafe, combines commonplace Indian street food with a Seattlite twist.
Raised in Bombay, Geogy began his culinary adventures at the Institue of Hotel Management and Catering Technology- the Indian equivalent to the Culinary Institute of America. He was one of the first to open Indian restaurants in Seattle during the early 80s, and was an integral part to the team that created Beba’s Deli Markets and the mini-chain of Chunteys.
Incorporating Geogy’s hometown classics, the cafe offers variations of Bombaite street food- from vada pav to samosas. Unique South Indian meals and snacks are also available to the hungry on-the-go commuter or passerby craving an intimate immersion in Indian cuisine.
