Apart from mom and endless wedding festivities, what a Lahori misses most about Lahore is food. Food, food, glorious food! Yeah even if we are taken to Naples for the authentic Pizza we will still long for Gino’s chicken and cheese-struck pizza (probably an Italian might not even recognise it). Chinese for us will always be the ketchup laden Chicken Manchurian which might seem Chicken Karahi to a native Chinese.
Lahore, the citadel of culture and literature in Pakistan is known for its passionate love for food. As this city has seen the advent of many invaders and people coming from various parts of the world, the cuisine here has the influences of all those cultures. Today Lahore’s food culture is a cocktail of all diverse flavours it has ever experienced.
Although the common perception is that Lahore is mostly famous for desi food but hey, this city has accepted all cuisines with open arms. Today from Italian to Thai to Mughlai, you get the best version of all foods in Lahore.
Here are some of our top food picks from Lahore.
Please offer some respect by devouring yourself with these delights. Let’s begin with the name of God and desi food first.
As mentioned earlier you get a flavor of the world in Lahore now (obviously with a Lahori touch which makes it all the more special.)

And last but not least, Lahoris are the best hosts ever.
This has induced some major Lahore missing. If in Lahore, you guys should probably look out for these foods. If not, just breathe in and out.
