Review: Breakfast at Chupa Rustom

Located at Bukhari commercial, Chupa Rustom is an upscale cafe reminiscent of the old Irani hotels of Karachi. It offers a modern take on traditional Desi food.   Chupa Rustom is a new place that has opened in Karachi at Bukhari Commercial. It’s designed as an ode to the old Irani cafes offering a glimpse of the Karachi that was, or in my case, the Karachi that I hear about from my parents and elders. Currently, the café is only…

A visit to Neco’s Natural Cafe and Store

A visit to Necos Natural Cafe & Store at Bukhari Commercial, Karachi to try their wholesome and healthy food.

If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that I am a fan of Neco’s (remember that Twix cheesecake).…

A leisurely breakfast at Cafe Aylanto

Cafe Aylanto is one of my favorite places to hang out with friends – the food is good but it’s the peace & quiet that appeals to me more. One can sit inside or outside. One can finish their meal in an hour or sit for a few hours and catching up on old times. One can actually hear the other person – no crazy loud music and the tables are far enough that the gossip is only retained to…

At that time she did dips & dressings & cooking sauces and I remember being so impressed with not just her line of products but the way she described…

Summers Under the Tamarind Tree – Review

A book review of Summers Under the Tamarind Tree – Recipes & Memoirs from Pakistan by Sumayya Usmani. I love reading! Books have been my companion for as long as I can remember. My favorite genre has to be fantasy – tales filled with magic and mystery maybe a dragon or two. However, I keep switching from genre to genre depending on my mood. There was a time in university when all I would read was chick-lit and romance – predictable…

New York Pizza

The opening of 14th Street was the advent of the New York style Pizza in Karachi – basically pizza that is large, wide, thin, and foldable with a crispy base. Not that Pizza Hut or Domino’s didn’t offer thin crust pizza but it just didn’t become as popular as when it was started by 14th street. Obviously, once the concept become popular, lots of other Pizza places started opening with some hits & misses. So far, the biggest hit in…
