Shan-e-Mughlia

August 31st, 2009 No comments

Recently added to the superb list of resturants in Karachi, Shan-e-Mughlia is barely 3 years old, but has probably surpassed its rivals in the shortest possible time.
Lal Qila was the first one, followed by Village and then came the big one, Shan-e-Mughlia

Situated on nearly 4 acres and boasting more than 200 food items, desserts, drinks and salad, it is not possible that you will not find what you like. Also not possible is to taste everything!
There are 2 huge jumping castles on one side of the resturant and it has a complete outdoor seating arangement, quite windy as there is no building situated nearby and the whole atmosphere s very relaxing as the traffic sound and honking doesnot reach you.

Chicken lovers

Smokey air, choking fumes, loud traffic, louder people and extreme loud kids….the beggars and the balloon sellers are insisting that you buy something from them or else you feed them…

For the tenth time, I wonder why do I come to al-haj Bundoo Khan, here at Sindhi Muslim , a very busy roundabout in Karachi. When I take the first bite of the excellent tikka with oil dripping paratha, I know why I came here and will come again next week, you just cant beat the tikka. The spices, tenderness, aroma… its out of this world. Their malai boti, reshami kabab, roghani naan, with imli ki chutney…  just writing all this makes me want to go there again.

Right next door to this heavenly tikkas is KFC, which every child thinks its a must to be there. In a different field, this chicken serving center has won its own share of hearts.  KFC also started serving rice and arabian meal, but the ‘finger licking good’ recipe remains its top seller.

And next door to this outlet is Nando’s, which attracts people of a certain type. Not everyone will enjoy a masala wali drink, or a Rs 500 ka tikka, served in a very sophisticated manner. As this place does not have a play area, it’s generally not frequented by people with kids. Catering to a different age group and class, this restaurant is a good place to take your significant other.

But even all these hen related places can’t answer the simple question of the chicken and the egg.

A-shopping we will go…

August 20th, 2009 1 comment

Pleasure shopping, air conditioned location, plenty of parking space, open nearly all the time, good, fast music, ATM facility, swift clearance and polite checkout, instant help. Where can you get all this and still be happy with the shopping done?
Its Makro, what’s else?
What started as a single wholesaler outlet, is now on everyone’s lips. No matter what is on your shopping list, you can get it from Makro. The staff is extremely helpful and courteous. They have been trained on how to handle customers of all age and status bracket. But there are some limitations. There is not a lot of variety available . In some cases, there is only one brand available. Also, there are only three outlets availables in all of Karachi, so sometimes, getting to the right place can be a masla.
But fear not, visit the outlets once a month and get all your shopping . Enjoy your day.
