Whichever the case may be, you may already know how there is simply no Lahore without food. Still don’t know where to head over to for a filling meal? We have enlisted just the right places for you, so prepare for some binging that you won’t regret!
Best Nashtas in Lahore
Phajay De Paye, Heera Mandi
Located right at the heart of Lahore’s red light area, Phajay De Paye would give you a taste in siri paye that you would never forget. The place has been of true symbolic significance to Lahore for decades and still has the same savor today, serving you siri paye from goat cooked in the traditional way served with warm kulchay.
Mohammadi Nahaari House, Mozang Chowk
Long gone are the days when stuff like nahaari and paye was just a ‘Karachi-thing’, because having some masaley-daar nahaari at Mohammadi’s is as good as eating at Bahadurabad. The reason why this certainly makes it to the top of the best Lahori dishes is the rich blend of flavor it carries, enriched in pure red meat. Served with garma-garam naan or kulchay, garnished with ginger flakes, coriander leaves and lemon, Mohammadi Nahaari would do justice to all your hunger pangs.
Butt ki Karhai, Lakshmi Chowk
Karahi in Nashta? well we Lahoris wake up after lunch :p, Prepare your taste buds for the feast of a life-time! Butt ki karhai is one of the topnotch specialties from Lahore when it comes to having a full-fledge meal. The best part about eating here is that they prepare the chicken right in front of you, so that you are well aware as well as relieved that what you are consuming is hundred percent chicken meat (we all know otherwise, Lahore) Make sure, however, that you spot the original Butt ki karhai at Lakshmi chowk only.
Chacha Feeka Lassi, Gawalmandi
If you are looking forward to a truly desi breakfast, we assure you that would be incomplete without a tall tumbler of lassi. The best in town is surely Chacha Feekay ki lassi that is usually available after standing in a long que but that is what tells you how much of a great deal it really is. Their pera lassi is totally worth the wait!
Taj Mahal Sweets, Opposite Badshahi Mosque
If you are a Lahori and you aren’t into a halwa puri breakfast on a Sunday, are you even for real? Taj Mahal sweets serves the best halwa puri in town, making you indulge in every bite that you take from that puffed up, fluffy gol puri served with sweet halwa as well as chanay. So you can pick!
So if you’re looking forward to a Sunday in Lahore, ‘breakfast in bed’ is not an option at all. Get your lazy self out of bed and into Lahore’s old mohalla streets for a super-greasy desi breakfast. You now know where to go! Don’t worry you can always burn these extra calories by downloading Nutright mobile app in your mobile phone.
