The Rice Bowl Redefined!


Food is one of the things in our lives that brings us immense pleasure, well at least when done properly. It is such an important part of our lives that we constantly strive to achieve perfection in it. Providing a good dining experience is a delicate, almost elusive art, which often escapes most. Everything has to come together beautifully: the aroma that encapsulates all senses, the deliciousness of the taste, the packaging and presentation, the ambiance and mood and most importantly how the experience makes you feel.

I am sure you all remember Anton Ego, the sourpuss food critic from Ratatouille. Whenever I am writing a food review, I feel the same grouchiness resulting from a lackluster dining experience. The only time Ego is actually pleased is when after tasting a dish he is transported to his childhood memories. And that is precisely what I need a restaurant and its food to give me. I want to be transported to a happy place full of delights that makes my taste buds dance to ethereal music, taking me to the moon- by now you must have realized that I have a very serious relationship with food and hence you need to take all my following words even more seriously!

Make yourself at home!

Lahori winters see the foodies go crazy about outdoor sitting areas. We love to hang out with our friends and family for dining out while being surrounded by heaters from all sides that keep us cozy at night. The Rice Bowl (RB), located on Main Boulevard offers both indoors and outdoors sitting areas. The décor is simple with seating which is comfortable- not too big, so as to almost make you feel like part of the same family and yet spread out out enough to give you your own space!

What you really wanna know- the food and taste:

The menu is Chinese and Thai and you can check out the entire menu here without me having to say more about it.

But that doesn’t mean I will stop here because there a few things which you will not find on the menu: first being how absolutely delicious and fresh tasting each of the items were. The chef gets busy only after you have placed your order. Earlier on, in the days of infancy, RB used to take ages for the food to be served but that is not the case now, which is a welcome change. What we especially like is the spice level of each dish mentioned on the menu.


Sushi lover’s paradise:

RB has only recently launched Sushi! And oh boy, that was some really delectable sushi we had last night! RB has brought in a chef who has had a long experience of working for a famous five star chain in the past.

I have tried it everywhere, locally as well as internationally, and RB’s Sushi meets every high quality standard and expectation. The Norwegian Salmon Nigiri, the Crunchy Maki rolls and the California rolls are all an absolute delight. The only thing we missed was the crabstick., hopefully soon to be added.

Divine Chocolate Cake:

No that is not what they call it but it surely is divine!

It is also recent on RB’s menu and the perfect way to finish off a hearty meal. I mean, does life have any meaning whatsoever at all, without meetha? We can report that this cake at RB is a hot seller and sometimes we get too late and it has all run out. Sigh! And when the staff says, “Finished madam,” you can almost hear my wretched, deep, lengthy, mournful cry which resonates all around in slow motion! “Noooooooooo”, as dark clouds immediately begin to form overhead, everything turns gloomy, babies start to wail and wolves begin to howl while it seems the whole world will be swallowed by a pit less dark hole.

Ahem! Well dessert is a serious business right!

A smile can win any heart!

The staff is friendly and helpful with plenty of smiles going around all the time- a truly rare commodity and fast heading towards complete extinction in our part of the world. You will be pleasantly surprised.

How much will your wallet suffer:

The prices are mid-range for a quality which is better than most top level five-star dining experiences. This is perhaps why I often see large hoards of youngsters swarming at RB excitedly.

Some families that I know of, make it a routine to visit once a week at least. And many offices have their food delivered regularly for lunch.

Enough rambling, now onto ratings (out of 5):

Location: 5 stars
Variety of food: 4.5 stars
Taste: 5 stars
Presentation: 4.5 stars
Ambiance: 4 stars
Décor: 2.5 stars
Cleanliness: 3.5 stars
Service Speed: 5 stars
Staff mannerism: 5 stars
Value for money: 5 stars (or more if we could help it!)

Our recommendations prioritized on basis of taste:

  1. Sushi
  2. Prawn Tempura
  3. Beef in Oyster Sauce
  4. Crispy Chicken with Sweet & Sour Chilli Sauce
  5. The Chocolate Cake

What it all boils down to:

So, it would be safe to say that The Rice Bowl has almost perfected the art of providing you with an experience that will bring you immense pleasure. They have one restaurant in Johar Town and they can be found in the food court at Packages Mall as well. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did! And if not, make sure to fill out their comment card, because RB takes all complaints and suggestions very seriously. Don’t take our word for it, try it out!

PF Chang’s meets Lahore



PF Chang’s is a Pan Asian restaurant chain that many Pakistanis are fond of because of the chain having multiple branches in UAE, a place where so much of the population is Pakistani. So naturally, when the restaurant finally opened in Lahore, we went crazy for it. I being one of the Pakistani’s who has been to the Dubai branch countless times decided to go and check it out and see whether it meets my expectations and the international standards in comparison to the Dubai branch.

My first attempt at finding a table was unsuccessful thanks to the long line that spread out to MM Alam Road. My second attempt a few days later was successful. For a day (November 1st) when everyone was scared to leave their houses and most of the roads were blocked, I did not expect such a big turnout. Nonetheless, I got a table in a few seconds, something that takes about 20 minutes in Dubai or any restaurant in Lahore for that matter. The huge building and seating capacity can be thanked for that.

The décor was perfect but the lighting was a lot brighter than a typical PF Chang’s which has a dark vibe to the environment and the atmosphere of the restaurant was excellent apart from the typical aunties screaming , “Ye PF Chang kya cheez hai,” “ye halal hai ke nai?,” The service was remarkably good and when I say this, I’m comparing it to Dubai, where you can’t get your food in under 30 minutes at least. Despite the place being busy, I was served my order in under 10 minutes.

PF Chang’s is famous for two things: the horses installed in the main entrance and the divine Dynamite Shrimp. For starters, I ordered the Chang’s Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup Bowl and Dynamite Shrimp. The soup was delicious and fulfilling and exactly like the one I have been having in Dubai for years now. A mishap occurred when the soup was spilled by one of my companions. The staff was super nice and friendly about it and offered us a replacement.

The Shrimp although nearly as good as the one in Dubai, did not have the same quality of shrimp. The quantity was less than what I was expecting which resulted in me ordering two more servings for us. In some PF Chang’s in other places in the world they offer larger servings. What seemed a bit weird to me was that the next two servings were larger in quantity than the first one and had the exact same taste and quality as the Dubai ones.

For my main course, I ordered the Kung Pao Chicken with white rice which again was excellent apart from the quality of the meat which in my opinion was the only downside.

I also ordered 8 pieces of California Rolls as a sushi main course which I have no complaints against. The taste was great and the fish was of amazing quality.

For dessert, I ordered something I had never had before: The Great Wall of Chocolate or in another word ‘heaven’.
Six rich layers of frosted chocolate cake with semi-sweet chocolate chips is just what everyone needs in life.

Overall the food was great, the atmosphere, the décor, the staff everything is up to standard. But on a side note, there was a certain hygiene issue involving one of the drinking glasses smelling of egg and one of my knives being dirty.

On a scale of 1-5, I give it a 4 star rating.

Tao: A Pan Asian Restaurant in Karachi – Review


Pan Asian cuisine has always been known for its blend of complex flavors, and at Tao, you can experience it all as there is something for everyone.

However, it falls into neither the ‘mind-blowing’ nor ‘terrible’ categories, and is a space where different people with different tastes can find something they like. Unlikely to be anyone’s favorite restaurant, it is equally unlikely to a hated spot. Tao is pleasant, inoffensive and safely middle of the road. While many restaurants are polarizing, Tao’s perfect averageness actually makes it universally acceptable.

Combining elegance and a refined ambiance, Tao achieves a rare zen-like balance evoking a sophisticated vibe. The soft lighting and unique cool interiors are both comforting and calming.

The space has been utilized very well with a variety of seating options, accommodating a cozy dinner for two, a meal with a large group of friends or perhaps a live sushi bar where you can sit on stools as your sushi is prepared right in front of you. But it is the splash of a fountain that you notice almost immediately as you enter Tao which allows for a soothing and relaxed atmosphere.

The menu has an extensive array of modern Asian cuisine with a variety that comprises the full spectrum of flavors ensuring that there is something for everyone. With wide ranging choices from soups, starters, salads, and sushi the main courses start on the sixth page of the menu. By keeping a Pan Asian theme, the restaurant is able to serve an assortment of dishes ranging from Japanese to Thai to Chinese. Most of this is traditional fare injected with subtle continental influences.

It would have been nice to be served a bread basket or some kind of amuse-bouche before the meal. Anything to nibble on while customers wait, even something as simple as green tea would be appreciated. It is subtle little touches like that make dining out special, and the absence of this detail is felt strongly.

Covered in a rich, sweet glaze, the ‘Salmon Teriyaki’ might have been interesting if it was not overcooked. Salmon should have a silken texture and melt in your mouth, this was dry and rough to the extent that the excellent teriyaki sauce could not save it.

Recommended by the server, the ‘Crispy Beef’ was very good. Richly flavored and juicy despite being thin cut it had a serious kick and was satisfying.

‘Spicy Crispy Vegetables’ was a personal favorite with its play on textures and unique tangy sauce. Deliciously crisp on the outside and soft and tender inside, it was deceptively simple definitely a dish one worth returning.

‘Pad Thai’ is an iconic and popular Thai dish and mandatory to fully experience the cuisine. Chewy rice noodles with bean sprouts tofu create an interesting blend of flavors without one note overpowering the others. The earthiness of the noodles was lovely, but it could have used a touch of lime.

The drinks may have been the best part of the meal. Instead of leaving it as an afterthought, the drinks seem to be specifically designed to complement all the dishes well. The ‘mint ginger lemonade’ was refreshing (because of the mint) and exciting (because of the ginger). If you are in the mood for something fruitier, the strawberry lemonade is also excellent.

The overall food at Tao is not that mind-blowing neither a disaster, you get everything sitting under a single roof.

Restaurant Review: The Patio


When ‘The Patio’ first opened, it appeared to be a transformed house with the porch and side yard turned into a lovely alfresco dining experience. This homey feeling along with the inclusion of fresh ingredients and impeccable service generated word of mouth for this unassuming restaurant. Since then, The Patio has grown into a favorite, constantly reinventing itself, and its latest menu showcases a kitchen that continues to evolve.

Located in the same lane as Koel and Cafe Flo in Clifton Block 4, Karachi, The Patio is good for walk ins, with reservations only necessary for special occasions (such as Mother’s Day, Eid).

The latest renovations have transformed the formerly casual joint into a modern space with good lighting, minimalist interiors and fun art. The atmosphere is low key and informal, making it a go-to spot to relax with friends and family.

The menu is well thought out overall, but especially remarkable is the tapas section. Patio’s tapas menu goes beyond the average appetizer and includes rarities like ‘Honey Crunch Lotus Stem’ and ‘Paneer Calamari’, as well as the more conventional ‘Wasabi Prawns’ and ‘Soy Glazed Chicken’. Those so inclined can make a meal of these bite size morsels by creating a platter of their favorite four tapas.

The stuffed mushrooms are new on the menu and the presentation is lovely, but they are bland and the texture leaves a lot to be desired.

We’ve always thought of laksa as the ideal winter dish, but The Patio’s version is so good, it can be enjoyed in any weather. Creamy, full flavored broth with just the right amount of spice and coconut flavor is the winning base for prawns, noodles, bean sprouts and crunchy peanuts.

In a land of meat lovers, it’s nearly impossible to find a vegetarian or pescatarian-friendly restaurant. The Patio fills that niche with assurance.

That is not to say that chicken and beef dishes are not delicious (a restaurant could hardly be expected to survive in Karachi without them), but the fresh take on vegetables and seafood is unique and appreciated.

The ‘Paneer and Mushroom Kuzhambu’ was anything but ordinary. The aromatic gravy was piquant, yet delicate in flavor with just enough texture to make it interesting. Fluffy, tender steamed rice was the perfect accompaniment.

The ‘Patio Prawns’ come with a creamy sauce which is a touch overwhelming. Some spice would have balanced it well. The garlic rice with it also lacked a zing, and the garlic flavor could have been more pronounced.

It’s easy to be tempted by the dessert menu. Instead of the run of the mill molten chocolate cake and bread and butter pudding, The Patio shows innovation here as well. The ‘Peanut Butter Cup’ was a deep, rich and creamy peanut butter mouse in a dark chocolate cup that cut the sweetness.

Though the food is impressive, it is the impeccable service that drives us to visit the restaurant again and again.

Rating (4.25 out of 5):

Lahore Cafeteria


Lahore is the city of die hard foodies. We love our food, we know our food, we are passionate about it and we do not compromise on its quality! In Lahore, it is difficult to break into and find footing in the restaurant business. That is the reason why Lahore Cafeteria caught our eye for doing so well in a city forever high on good food! A recent visit to the restaurant, located on Mall Road by our team brought some pleasant discoveries to light. Read on to find out what’s the reason behind the success story of Lahore Cafeteria (LC).

Entrepreneur Usman Qasim, co-owner of LC, has a degree in law from Hull University, UK. His partner and friend Rao Mazhar Ali Khan is a LUMS graduate.  They diversified into the food business after studying for completely different fields. LC is a darling place, nestled comfortably into one of the old buildings that the Mall is so famous for. Hence, upon entering the first thing you notice is the expanse of the restaurant and the old style construction with a beautiful floor. A spacious hall welcomes you and offers comfortable seating at tables which are not crowded together.

Buffet is an option which most LC regulars opt for, for a quick bite during lunch break. Aroma of fresh barbeque being prepared outside, fills up your senses as you try to decide what to eat and what to leave for next time. The buffet offers the traditional variety of salads, Pakistani cuisine items such as biryani, daal, saag, various types of Chicken, Chinese entrées and some not very fancy desserts, which are alright for those students and office going people who are short of time but still know where to find some delicious food.

The menu offers a large variety of dishes and you can find them all on the facebook page of Lahore Cafeteria, but from what we tried we highly recommend the saag and well the naans were to die for! They seemed to have been prepared with a dough kneaded in butter perhaps… we didn’t have time from munching and taking complete delight in the taste to ask what made the naans of LC so special but trust us, they were one of the best ones we have had in Lahore.

Barbeque was good and a must try. We also had a taste of their pizza, which tasted quite fresh but the Chicken with Cashew Nuts served with Egg Fried rice was something we can go back for again and again. If you are in the mood for a burger, you can try the LC Special Chicken burger and you won’t be disappointed.

The restaurant is open from 11 am to 10 pm Monday to Saturday and remains closed on Sundays which is the only sad part about LC. I mean what if we felt like nibbling on some yummy Chicken Seekh Kebabs on a Sunday night?

Now comes the most interesting part about LC: the prices will surprise you. For the kind of seating arrangement that they offer, where families with women and children feel completely comfortable and the kind of quality and variety of food that they serve, the place feels very economical and highly affordable. I think that, it is this competitive price range that has become the reason for the rapid rise in the popularity of this place and has given it its unique edge.  

They deliver all over Lahore and they are just a call away but we recommend that if you really want to taste the food it all its glory, you must at least once make the effort to get to the actual place. Here’s a link to their page where you can explore:

Keep eating healthy and yummy. Bon appétit!

Lal Qila


Lal Qila is a famous buffet restaurant located on main Shahrah-e-Faisal in Karachi. 
The whole structure has been designed as a fort and constructed with red bricks, hence the name.

For the current rates of buffet lunch, hi-tea and dinner, please visit

The massive wooden entrance doors lead into the main reception area.

The compact seating area at the reception has been designed traditionally.

Once they get the go-ahead, the customers enter the main restaurant area, which is open-air. There is an indoor dining room and a play area for little children as well.

A fountain and waterfall on one side provide the pleasant sound of running water – a real bonus for the outdoor diners.

This red-brick building next to the entrance/exit houses the children’s play area and office. The play area is designed completely in wood as a small fort! Very nice idea. Children get excited by this immensely.

The washroom is very clean, but in dire need of some maintenance and repair.

There is a sitting area on an upstairs terrace as well, which these stairs lead to.
It is not open for lunch.

There is a central ‘square’ that houses the food area, where customers can help themselves to the food from large bronze/copper-colored pots.

Prawn Tempura. Freshly fried for diners.

The BBQ station is on one side.
It serves tikka and kababs in chicken and beef, barbecued live.

Chicken seekh kababs, Chicken Tikka, and Beef seekh kababs, in that order.

Clockwise from top right:

Fried Fish, Prawn Tempura, Chinese Egg Fried Rice, Chicken in Sweet and Sour Sauce, Beef in Black Pepper Sauce, and Vegetable Thin Mien. These are the items from the buffet which are really well cooked always and delicious.

Samandri Heera – boneless fried fish.

From left: Chicken Biryani, Aaloo Bhujia, Cholay and a tray for fresh Puris.

Khubani ka Meetha, Jelly Mousse, and Chickpea salad.

No traditional buffet at a Pakistani restaurant would be complete without this popular dessert: hot and tender Gulab Jamans floating in their oozy sweet syrup.

BBQ Kababs, Fried Rice and Black Pepper Beef.

Doesn’t the barbecued mince look delicious?

Hot n Sour Soup with chicken and shrimps.

A tall glass of sweet lassi for Rs 70 Titled as “Dil ki Thandak” on the menu, this is the best lassi one could have!

Lab-e-Shireen, Khubani ka meetha, and gulab jaman.

Verdict: We think the above photographs speak amply in favor of the quality and freshness of the food. Sorry if they made you drool on an empty stomach! Everything in the restaurant is clean mostly and the ambience is more than satisfactory, especially the quality of the food.

We would recommend going to Lal Qila for lunch instead of dinner, because at the latter time, the entire restaurant is extremely crowded, especially on weekends, and the platters empty very quickly (taking time to be replenished), especially the salad bar. There are long queues in front of the fried items. 

Kudos to Lal Qila for not just surviving, but thriving, in the local food-scape of Karachi.

The Monal- Delicious food in the romance of the hills


Located among the majestic Margalla Hills at Pir Sohawa, The Monal is a fine option which no one should miss when in Islamabad – the city of colours!

Over the past few years, people have experienced many changes in the food quality at some leading restaurants of the twin cities; but The Monal Restaurant in Islamabad never disappoints anyone.

Starting from the variety in their menu to the quick service of the staff, everything is consistent from day one. It appears that they have not only maintained their services but also achieved a name among the top restaurants of the twin cities.

Over the weekends it is always jam-packed with people. What amazes us most is that even on the busiest days, the restaurant manages to pull their services well.

Let’s talk about food now. Just like most restaurants the menu is very lengthy, including breakfast, lunch and dinner items, fast food, traditional dishes and drinks, sweet dishes etc.

All-Time Favourite

Mostly people’s all-time favourite is their quite popular Cheese Naan. It tastes great, you’ll never find such naan anywhere; the tender bread with the soft melted cheese excites your taste-buds leaving a creamy and salty effect which lasts for a while.


The waiters always present everything in an organized and professional manner, from placing the cutlery on the table to clearing out dishes. During the three-course meal we had, they kept on asking everyone if they needed anything.

Three Course Meal

The three-course meal starts with a soup usually and there a variety of soups available in the menu.  Chicken Corn Soup specially is very delicious accompanied with fish crackers and garlic bread; the rich flavour of the soup is simply tantalizing. On a scale of ten we would give it a 9.

In the second course of the meal you can have anything like Chicken Boneless Handi, Chicken Seekh Kababs, Chicken Chops served with crispy hot French fries, Karhai etc. Theres handiis accompanied with Roghni Naan and Salad, the aroma of the handi is always tempting, the food is always well-cooked and the flavours are exciting. The Seekh Kababs are tender and delicious with the proper balance of spices. The scrumptious Chicken Chops, the chicken breast always perfectly cooked with a delicious and crispy coating. Overall their meal is beautifully prepared.

In the third course you can have any desert. The most ordered desert here is “Chocolate Cheese Brownie Cake”- a delicious combination of cheese and chocolate which makes this dessert irresistible. They serve it on a plate with a slice of brownie cake drizzled with chocolate syrup with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, which makes this dessert heavenly. On our scale we would have rated it more than 10- it is a definite must to try.

Ambience and Interior

How can we forget to mention the beautiful interior and exterior of the restaurant? While having a meal, our surroundings matters the most. People always prefer to sit outside at the Monal and enjoy the beautiful view of Islamabad from the top of the Margalla Hills. The Monal offers a spectacular view of the entire city. The restaurant has seven terraces which provide an amazing view. These terraces have their own themes- there is a terrace for families, a general terrace, a balcony for those who want to find peace and privacy. The dining hall is paneled with a huge glass window so that the people who are sitting inside can also have a good view of the majestic hills.

One of the best places to eat in Karachi- Kolachi


This sea-facing restaurant in Clifton, Karachi, has been in the limelight since its inception due to many reasons. Firstly, their concept of the entire setup of having a restaurant on top of water was unique for this area being the first ever in the city. The atmosphere and ambience gives a fresh and romantic experience to the guests. They further won the hearts of the visitors with their phenomenal food offerings.

Apart from their famous as well as scrumptious paneer reshmi handi and chicken karahi, they have been praised for their exemplary customer service. This was additionally enhanced when they took an extraordinary step to prove how far they could go for the satisfaction of their customers.

According to customer reviews, if you are planning to visit Karachi, you should surely place Kolachi restaurant at the top in the list of tourist spots.

Let’s talk about Kolachi in a little more detail:


The best thing about this restaurant is its location and its magical environment, especially at the time of sunset and after. The sea view and chilly wind makes it a memorable dining experience. The sight and sound of sea waves is mesmerizing as one enjoys delicious food- almost like being on a cruise ship.

Food is not just to satisfy your appetite, it’s an experience that touches many other senses. It provides us a break from our dull robotic routine lives. This place hits good level of providing calm and quiet. When it comes to a family or friend’s recreational visit, it provides a thoroughly entertaining night out!


Its atmosphere makes it one classy place. It makes one want to visit it multiple times. Interiors are obviously the first thing one sees and yes, they do create a positive image about the place. Lighting is a bit dim – probably not a good place for the photophilic.


The menu has a huge range of dishes. Comprising of BBQ, Pakistani, Italian, French, Lebanese, Thai, Chinese, Seafood, Mocktails, Milkshakes and desserts!


Food is always served hot and fresh. The presentation of each and every dish is exceptionally well done and always cooked to perfection. The taste of every item is great. Their makhni handi and BBQ platter are the most consumed and famous dishes at Kolachi.


The service is fast on week days and clumsy on weekends due to larger crowds coming in. Waiters are always well-mannered and friendly to the customers.


The only thing that will make you think twice before planning a visit at Kolachi is its overpriced menu. Tax inclusion takes the bill to a higher level catagorising it amongst the high end restaurants.


Mouth-watering food with tempting presentation, average service and a perfect atmosphere makes it a good overall experience.
