The love for food in Pakistan is unanimously shared amongst all citizens, as we take our food very seriously! It is this love for food, that Pakistan hosts a wide culture of eating out at restaurants, the industry ranging from delicious street foods in the form of Lassi, and Papri Chat, to Fast-food, mouthwatering desserts, Pan-Asian cuisines-we have them all!

But what truly distinguishes Pakistani food is our hearty, flavorful desi cuisines that are renowned across the globe! Whether it is our Biryani, Nihari, or Karhai! The love for Pakistani food and food culture was evident in renowned travel vlogger, Mark Wein’s exclusive trip to Pakistan for our desi food!

Although Pakistan is a relatively young country, the cuisine has developed over many years and incorporates elements from its neighbors – India, Afghanistan, and Iran. The varied regions also mean there is a wide range of different foods – from the fertile valleys and the sea of Sindh province; to pastoral Baluchistan from neighboring Iran; to Punjab with its five rivers and the rugged North West Frontier, home of the chapli kebab. The blend of Indian, Far Eastern, and Middle Eastern cooking techniques creates a distinctive mix of complex flavors.

And what is a better way to celebrate the 75th Independence Day of Pakistan, than to enjoy a hearty meal with your family and devour some tempting desi food? Here is Sunday’s pick of top Desi Restaurants to try this Independence Day!
