Karachi Eat 2015 Food Festival Review

In a city like Karachi, where families don't have much options for recreation except for food, this kind of an event is a brilliant idea.

There was a wide variety from desi to continental to snacks to desserts and sweets. This festival also became a platform for many home bakers and home cooks to project their specialties. I'm sure a lot of such business will get flocked with orders because of this festival.

The best item of the festival was hands down the Chapli Kabab from the Chapli Kabab House. Hot and freshly cooked with a warm naan, it was the first thing that I tried and I wasn't disappointed.

Next, I tried a croissant from La' Sacher. The croissant was good no doubt but it was disappointing that they had no heating facility and they didn't give any butter with it and I ended up paying 70 bucks for a dry, cold croissant!

Then I had a Chocolate Cup Cake from Sugaries, it was alright, could have been slightly more baked.

 My experience at Eat Fit wasn't that great as their Spicy Chicken Sandwich was very dry, not spicy at all and had no cheese in it, all their sandwiches were already prepared and packed so customization wasn't really an option.

Another star of the night apart from Chapli Kabab was the churros from Churros and Choc by Rayyan Durrani. Unfortunately, there was such a long queue every time I went near their stall, that I had to give up on the quest.

One more thing I missed out was the Pakola in it iconic glass bottle, as it too ran out of stock, had to make do with the can :)

Below are some more I captured of a few of the stalls, the lighting was quite bad though
