Being a foodie is not an easy task, it requires having a great taste and experience of some authentic diverse cuisines other than the local one. For some people food is simply about consuming what is laid out in front of them- a physiological need of the humans while many consider it their honorable duty to eat the best cuisines and enlighten their fellow foodies about it so that they may enjoy and experience the same level of food coma as them.
Quite frankly people have had enough with all the continental and Chinese fine dining restaurants in Karachi. At every nook and cranny of the city, a joint pops up offering the monotonous selection of steaks and burgers under the disguise of fancy names. However very few joints are serving great food while most have duplicated items and changed the names whilst serving the same taste and food found anywhere else.
Ironically the people are still thronging these outlets in droves because they are starved off great entertainment, thus eating out is the only available entertainment option they have. Food for thought- not stomach- would be why have the people turned away from the traditional food and original recipes which were once created at home.
Karachi has been home to a culturally diverse population since aeon’s which makes the cuisine a multi-cultural hot pot. This simmering cauldron of cultures which we call home- Karachi has the obscured and forgotten cuisines from the early settler’s communities. Sadly these cuisines are rarely known or experienced by the masses because people are under the influence of ginormous beef steaks or humungous burger patties- highly saturated in fats, offering a perfect recipe for a coronary attack.
So what makes these forgotten cuisines special, for starters, these cuisines are healthy options to begin with, not doubt extremely rich but they are not just about the meatiness of the patties. There is the flavor and subtle induced food coma to be experienced with these forgotten cuisines. Catering to this very whim of forgotten cuisines is The East End; a new restaurant located at Clifton.
