The month of Ramadan Kareem is going on; people are flocking eateries and bakeries to get their hands on the typical desi delights like pakoras and samosa’s. For most of the people, Ramadan is about eating well and giving it their all towards praying. For it is during this spiritual month that, work takes a back seat despite its degree or magnitude of importance and only the true spirit of Ramadan comes to replace it.
Ramadan in k-town is a spiritual and cultural event wherein each person reverberates the feeling of being part of a sacred event. People who live abroad come down to Karachi especially to celebrate the Holy month of Ramadan and the festival of Eid right after. The fervor and zeal emanating from the people cannot be contained, numerous acts of selflessness are witnessed throughout the month since people try to do as many good deeds as possible.
But with all the efforts being placed towards fulfilling the religious duties, not a single person forgets the preparations and spreads mandatory for opening the fast. Women of the house tend to spend long hours in the kitchen at a stretch so that at the time of opening the fast, there are as many items on the table as possible- these preparations do not include dinner, which is a different ball game. It goes without saying that the best food at the time of opening the fast is at home, but sometimes a change is appreciated by the women and the family as well.
Eating out in restaurants during the month of Ramadan is a norm for the young crowd while for the adults a special occasion requires such elaborate outings. The desi delights of chaat, samosas and pakoras are enjoyed throughout the month of Ramadan and people can never get enough, but a twist on the iftar and dinner is a good change.
For the month of Ramadan, Gon Pacci is offering a yummy in the tummy iftar and dinner menu which is priced fairly moderate. To begin with at Iftar, customers can choose from pakoras, chaat, spring roll, sandwiches and mini burgers all of which is in a buffet. Mint cooler right after opening the fast is certainly one of the most refreshing drinks, a person could have.
