A friend of mine, who lives in Islamabad, has made a habit of enjoying a meal once every Ramadan in Kartarpura, a food street of Rawalpindi.
Dating back to the pre-partition era of 1940s, this place is known for its exotic local, aka desi, delicacies and varieties.
The place opens up in the evening and remains full packed up until early morning. One will not find any continental cuisine over there but what is offered instead is something you may not have tasted before.
My friend recently went back to Kartarpura, as part of his annual tradition, and shared few pictures with me. Enjoy!
Welcoming with a smile.
Ever seen a breakfast house? Now you just did.
A cafe offering glass of Lassi with Patorray, dish made of gram flour.
People won’t mind waiting outside for long, just for the sake of taste.
Is he a Lassi King? 🙂
Serving 5 different varieties of Patorray (Potato, Beef, Vegetable, Chicken and Achari).
A naan (flatbread) to wait for!
Up close with few Patorrays!
Do you like deep or medium fried parathas?
Talk about family legacy!
Just look at those giant pots!
