    Inferiority complexed westernized Pakistanis. Seriously? Where are dishes which are actually Pakistani?

    Churros?Cupcakes?, Magnum?, Waffles? Danish Sandwiches?

    Our snacks & dishes are much tastier. Karachi Eat Festival should have the Best of Bunkababs atleast? Recommend

    Love the pictures!

    However as a South Indian, I shall nitpick that the Masala Dosa looks like a pale imitation of the real one.Recommend

    Good iniative, with good sales. I’m sure the Excise & Taxation has recovered bumpy tax from the sale proceeds at the joint, which should be flawless. Suggest if the ETO, GST, Federal, Provincial taxation should declare today essentially about their recovery of taxes, so the Government should organise further shows for more revenue collection, as an example of revenue recovery, and avoidance at the actual selling points of the food being displayed. With all the literate, plastic and online payment crowd they must have paid good taxes.Recommend

    @ShamelessPakistanis: Had you visited you would’ve known that they have bun kababs, gol gappay. chana chaat. doodh patti koyla karhai, aaloo paratha and haleem. These are the ones I saw for myself. Pretty sure there must have been more. Recommend
