Chinese Food Festival At Beach Luxury Hotel

Evenings are getting somewhat chilly in Karachi these days and the season definitely calls for night-outs with friends and comfort food. So, a couple of weeks back, Beach Luxury Hotel had a Chinese Food Festival which was perfect for a dinner get-together with my blogging buddies.

Since it was a food festival, Beach Luxury offered a buffet dinner. The first thing we had to warm ourselves up just a little bit was obviously some soup. They had quite a variety and I opted for hot and sour soup which was a banger and I loved it. The main course had a decent number of options and some of my favourites were crispy fried lemon chicken, steamed chicken dumplings, and prawn tempura. There was a beef stir fry which I had with some fried rice but it was not the best I have had. Two interesting dishes for us Pakistanis were hot stir fry squid and ginger crabs. I love food festivals for the very reason that we get to try something out of our comfort zone and it is mostly a pleasant experience as was this.

The only things that felt a bit off for the theme were the salads and the desserts as we got the usual green salad, pasta, chickpeas, custard, ice cream etc. I so want to try more authentic Chinese cuisine, particularly desserts so I really do hope Beach Luxury takes notes and brings us some more good stuff next time.

Berlin Doner and Gyro Review

Doner and gyro are two popular street food in Germany, especially amongst Muslims since these are the only meat dishes which are halal and easily available there. So even though doner belongs to Turkey and gyro belongs to Greece, Berlin Doner and Gyro has brought home the scrumptious taste from the streets of Berlin for the foodies in Karachi.

The food chain is fairly new in K-town but has still managed to open three outlets and I happened to visit their newest one in LuckyOne Mall recently. Spoiler alert, I absolutely savoured something that I never even thought I would enjoy! Keep reading to find out what exactly.

Berlin Doner and Gyro Review

Berlin Doner and Gyro offers four types of meat so you have plenty of choices to pick whatever you like or are in the mood for.  There is something for everyone since you can get your doner and gyro with either chicken, lamb, veal or turkey. The prices, of course, do vary depending on what you opt for but the chicken costs the least and the turkey costs the most as far as I can recall.
