Eating Bun Kabab is Kewl!

Sarak ka ganda khana has always attracted and fasicanted me. Aik faida to yeh hai kay banda awien cool cool (balkay kewl kewl) lagta hai street food khatay huay aur doosra ziada bara faida hai kay sasta hota hai 😉

Lahore mai Anda Shami Burgers kaafi ziada khanay kay baad I always wanted to try out their relatively desi-er cousins … jee, Bun Kabab!

Waisay to Karachi has a bun kabab vendor at every other corner but there are a few famous ones as well and Nursery kay bun kabab are one of them.

Had to move a few things around but did manage to try this Mash’hoor Bun Kabab on my last trip to K-Town. A very economical and clean bun kabab place. A must have for Lahori foodies who want to meet the Karachi ka anda shami!

Fuchsia Kitchen – not your regular Asian restaurant

Once you’ve eaten at Fuchsia Kitchen there’s no going back to any other similar eatery.

If you haven’t tried this place then I am afraid you’ve been eating very average kind of Thai and Chinese food at all other places in Lahore.

  • Complementary something with salsa (starter)
  • Prawns with Mushroom Dim Sum
  • Sticky Beef
  • Crispy Lemon Chicken
  • 2 botal paani
  • Complimentary jasmine rice

Food: 9/10
Ambience: 9/10
Service: 9/10

Total Bill: 3,242
Totally worth every paisa spent.

Tribute to Food!

It’s predicted there will be 7.5 billion people in the world in 2017, and about 5 billion of them will have a mobile phone. Let’s say roughly 80% of those phones have a built-in camera: around 4 billion people. And let’s say they take 10 photos per day – that’s 3,650 photos per year, per person. That adds up to more than 14 trillion photos annually (14,600,000,000,000).

Google has reported there were more than 24 billion selfies posted on their servers last year. I am pretty confident that the second most popular category of photographs is now food pictures. The sight of people taking food pictures is a very common thing now.

I am one of those 5 billion users who started using his phone to take pictures of food. My philosophy of food pictures is more than just pictures.

My photography is a tribute to food from my side.

My tribute to food made me look at food from a different perspective, from the perspective of love and appreciation.

Recently 2 of my pictures got selected for Foodelia International Food Photography Awards that became one of the main reason to have more formal platform to share my work with Food Lovers.
