So, the three day event, Karachi Eat 2019 has finally come to an end! Karachi welcomed New Year in full swing as we witnessed an amazing food festival on 11th, 12th and 13th of January 2019! There were 90 new food stalls which gained everyone’s attention since we all were eager to try them and get the taste of our lives. So let’s start with everything that happened in these three days:
Let’s first talk about the entry fee, it was just Rs 350 and if you have changed your FB display picture to the frame of Karachi Eat you would get a discount of RS 100.

The Chew Bar had these two amazing food items; dibs on the ribs and malai boti! Both were rightly cooked, ribs were mouth melting soft and malai boti was loved by everyone.
The corn soup from Saniya’s Kitchen was refreshing and just perfect for the weather!
Khousey and dosa from Khao Dosa – House of Khousey & Dosa were also pretty good. But all it needed was a little more spice to the curry of khousey.
I loved the Chili Tacos from Sweet Greens, they were crunchy, healthy and full of flavor. The chili Tacos actually fulfilled everyone’s savory cravings.
If you wanted to experiment your taste buds then “The Buddha bowl from Da Booda” was the right choice since it brought twist to our usual chana chaat, with beans and greens.
I’m sure you all must have tried the dessert from #omnombros. The taste of the cannoli which was sesame based was just too amazing, it went really well with the sweet and overwhelming cream inside. Sweet bunelos were filled with warm chocolate.
Malai boti & Reshmi kebab from Sultan – The Royal Eatery were to die for! The kebabs were very juicy, smoking hot; the malai boti was so yummy and felt like malai that it actually melted in our mouth.
So let’s talk about the stalls which were very much crowded on all three days of the festival.
The most crowded stall was Cloud Naan as they served hot Naans straight from their Wood Fired Oven. And then it was Rigo’s as everyone simply loved their yummy delight, one could totally live at Rigo’s! And then came No Lies Fries, just like its name it lived up to mark with freshly fried fries and chicken pieces which were just too yummy. And since Matka chai is the new trend which is going on around, seeing that stall crowded came as a no surprise to us since the weather and the serving were right on point. Hobnob has definitely worked a lot on their food and serving since they launched cronuts for the first time, it was very much loved by everyone who visited Karachi Eat. 7up on the other hand was crowded because of the way their stall was designed it attracted almost everyone to be on their stall. Slamvich was also one of the stalls which was crowded because of its unique way of serving and taste ofcourse. Other stalls like National, Dalda, Meiji and many more were full of entertainment.
Over all the experience was good. The first day was a less crowded as compared to the second and third day, reason being Saturday and Sunday were holidays and people went on these two days to spend time with families out there. People also complained about standing in queue for more than an hour just to get the entry ticket, and we also came to know that the area was so much crowded that people hardly got space to actually sit.
Overall the event was perfectly managed by CKO and Mindmap. We now look forward to other amazing events coming our way.
