Karachi Eat Festival 2017
I believe that food is what life is all about! Trying out new kinds of dishes is always the perfect remedy for a bad mood or bored taste buds! Karachi Eat Festival 2017 is the accurate reflection of the thrill of trying innovative tummy-satisfiers. It has been a progressively spruced up event each year, and the fiesta this year is no less than the previous ones!
Here is a quick rundown of what is hot this year amongst the crowd of dishes at Frere Hall.
A sweet tooth like me was utterly head-over-heels at the “Chocolate S’mores” sold by Peak Frean’s Café, which had of chocolate chips, dark chocolate and creamy marshmallows that melted in the mouth.
The cheesecake over there was scrumptious, with a creamy layer on top and crunchy marie biscuit inside to to balance out the texture. Also, the staff members here were extremely polite, helpful and trained. The butterpuff crackers, on the other hand, were a change of taste from all the heavy dishes, given that they were light, crispy and extremely reasonable, only for PKR 30!
The BBQ Mutton Chops from Meat One were absolutely delicious! They were spicy yet mild, simple yet amazing, cooked to perfection. Furthermore, they were only for PKR 300!
Run towards the National stall the minute you reach Frere Hall if you are fond of desi bun kababs. Even though the way they served the chutney was not impressive, but then who can say no to only a PKR 100 worth bun kabab? The Chilli Glazed Wings at National Foods were juicy, yummy, spicy and worth dying for (and I am not even kidding!). They are a MUST try if you are at the festival!
Also, Shan Foods had delectable degi haleem and biryani at a very reasonable price. Rs 50 Each.
Other than all that, the weather was pleasant, not too hot yet not too cold, perfect for a family day-out at the food festival!
Yet, it would have been much more better if there would have been seating arrangements for the huge crowd present at the venue, as only Meat One and National food seemed to have some seats for the enthusiastic foodies.
