The never-ending debate between Karachi and Lahore’s food was settled by the English captain Moeen Ali on Sunday after his team won the seven-day T20 series against Pakistan. “Disappointed” by Lahore’s food options, the cricketer said Karachi was “nice” in terms of cuisine — not better, but straight up nicer — and fans agree!
After winning the series, England’s all-rounder shared his thoughts in a post-match press conference. A sports journalist asked Ali about his experience during his team’s stay in Lahore, to which he responded he was happy with the security and hospitality but was a little ‘disappointed’ with the food.

“I’ve been a little bit disappointed by the food in Lahore,” he said and then as an afterthought, he added, “Karachi was really nice.”
While the whole nation is sad about last night’s loss, Karachiites have a reason to celebrate – and Lahoris, according to social media, got a reality check.
The good thing about Moeen Ali's statement is that I haven't found any Lahori disagreeing to what he said. Of course I mean the Lahoris who have visited Karachi frequently.— Adeel Azhar (@adeel_azhar) October 3, 2022
Moeen Ali settled the dispute that no one could. Karachi’s food is better than Lahore’s.— Oshaz (@ThisisOshaz_) October 2, 2022

This user wants Pakistani skipper Babar Azam to go to the United Kingdom and comment on their food as well.
So want babar azam go to the UK to say “i have been a little disappointed in the food. Tastes like a dead queen. #MoeenAli— Sarmad Hashmi (@kr8v_) October 3, 2022
Oops, someone thinks it's "typical" English behaviour.
#MoeenAli just created a divide between Lahore and Karachi . Typical English strategy :)— Vikram Sathaye (@vikramsathaye) October 3, 2022
