What was Karachi Eat 2018 all about?
The fifth installment of Karachi Eat is over. This year the food festival moved to a new location and despite some initial hiccups, saw massive crowds.
Just like other years, it was newcomers to the Karachi food scene which stole all the attention. These stalls stood out because of their long ques and unique dishes.
From a burger with a sweet bun, dessert all the way from Prague to chicken and waffles, here are some of the dishes which we thought were the standouts from this year.
Tacocat repeated the popularity of the Nom Nom Tacos from last year proving that Karachiites sure have a flare for the classic Mexican dish. Both chicken and beef tacos were equally popular among the foodies.
Be it their Grilled Australian or Fried Chicken in a cone, the Fry Guys stole the attention of the foodies with their unique yet tasty menu.
What caught our eye?
Of course, there were some dishes which we couldn’t stop talking about (because they were just that good).
Candyfloss ice cream by Delina
The ‘Saturn’ candy floss ice cream is a dream cum true for all the people with a sweet tooth.
Banging Brownie by Heyday
Heyday’s Banging Brownie oozes moistness and is must try for all the chocolate lovers.
Khaosay by Khao Sey 2.0
The signature dish of Khaosey 2.0 was a returning favourite from last year and still retained its taste and charm.
The typical South Asian delicacy with a little of improvisation attracted a lot of visitors. We tried the pizza samosas and they matched what we had in mind.
Sri Lankan food
Rice Platter Chicken of Sri Lankan Cuisine by Ana’s Fabcakes sure had us salivating over the dish.
‘Parsi Cuisine and Others’ sought to offer people a taste of authentic Parsi food. Patra Ni Macchi which comprises steam fish topped with spicy coriander, lemon and coconut chutney wrapped in a banana leaf sure had people tilting their heads.
2 Guys 1 Grll
Donut Burger by 2 Guys 1 Grll was undeniably the most talked about dish of the event with almost everyone raving about the delicious burger.
Caffe Praha brought the refreshing taste of Prague to Karachi with its signature dish Trdelniks (chimney cake). The dessert which was served after waiting in line for 40 mins was definitely worth the wait and as scrumptious as we had hoped.
