    Your Local Hotel...: Eating Well While on Tour

    by svbuchanan Updated Jan 14, 2006

    If you adventurous like I am and on tour in Pakistan, your day's goal might often be to make it to the next decent hotel however many miles away. There were many times when I stayed at the only hotel in small remote towns... and there was no other choice for restaurant food. The hotels understandably carry the cheapest most durable foods, namely potatoes and maybe peas... so it can be difficult to get a good meal after touring all day. Soooo, health conscious as I am, I had my driver stop and pick up vegetables every day when we'd pass a market along the way. Each night when we arrived at our hotel we'd bring the vegetables in to the chef and voila, we had the best, most fresh and healthy dinners they'd ever had on tour. The driver and guide both wondered why they hadn't thought of that before in their 20+ years of experience! And the cost for this magnificent vegetable feast was maybe $1-$2!

    Favorite Dish: Kadoo or Squash can be found almost anywhere along the way... also in the north, in Hunza especially they have the best most succulent greens I've ever had!

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mango the "king of fruits", is one of the most popular and best-loved fruits. Hundreds of varieties of mangoes are available in Pakistan. Chill the mangoes in ice and try... yummmy...... the aroma and taste of Pakistan mangoe is unmatched. Available in summer (end-June to september)

    In winter (end-November to March), you will find sweet juicy oranges every where, at very cheap rates.

    Favorite Dish: Mangoes Varieties: Dusehri, Chaunsa, Sindhri, Anwar-retol, langra,

    Chinatown: Don't order too much

    by AndreSTGT Updated May 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Upmarket Chinese restaurant in the suburb of Clifton. Very popular with the upper class.
    They have two menus, one with standard westernized Chinese food, and the other, only on demand, with authentic and more exotic dishes. Good selection of seafood.
    Prices are high for Pakistan but the servings are HUGE.
    We only ordered two dishes, but it was way too much for us, so we gave the rest to a crippled beggar on the street. I bet this was the best meal he had in his entire life.

    Favorite Dish: King Prawns with cashew nuts.
    Yummie!!!

    The Khan Club is the most beautiful and luxurious hotel in Peshawar.

  • Various Resturants....: Pakistani Food....

    by WAHEEDASLAM Written Mar 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pakistani food is similar to that of northern India, with a dollop of Middle Eastern influence thrown in for good measure. This means menus peppered with baked and deep-fried breads (roti, chapattis, puri, halwa and nan), meat curries, lentil mush (dhal), spicy spinach, cabbage, peas and rice. Street snacks - samosas and tikkas (spiced and barbecued beef, mutton or chicken) - are delicious, while a range of desserts will satisfy any sweet tooth. The most common sweet is barfi (it pays to overlook the name), which is made of dried milk solids and comes in a variety of flavours.

    The Village, Karachi: Restaurant with an attitude.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has an interior decor that reflects Pakistan's heartland culture. Good quality food is served in traditional kiosks/serving stations. The exterior also shows culture of the land and a family can also take a ride in a decorated horse-buggy.

    Favorite Dish: This restaurants offers menu from all the nooks and corners of Pakistan. Pakistanis are meat eaters and love meat in every form - bbq, with gravy, with rice, etc. One should try Sindhi Biryani, Chicken Tikkas, Karahi Gosht, etc.

    Local People: Chai!!!

    by aukjejetty Written Apr 21, 2003

    Everywhere we went in Pakistan people offered us chai. I loved it! The chai is never the same, everyone seems to have a slightly different recipy. If you have the time, go and have chai with the locals. It is a change to chat with them and learn a little more about Pakistani life.

    I never met locals with bad intentions, in 2001 the Norhern Areas were unspoiled, people were sooooo friendly!

    The so called "Food Street" in Lahore is a pedestrianized zone with nicely restored colonial buildings.
    There are plenty of food stalls offering cheap and delicious local food. Most of them have tables on the street, so this a great place to spend an evening eating and people-watching.
