Lunchtime cravings: See what restaurants are best to order food at work

When clock rotates around 12:00 PM, it feels that you had breakfast like hundred years ago, your stomach starts glowing and the cravings you get are real. Literally! But still, there’s nothing to hide. Lunchtime is just here and all you need to do is get a healthy and budget-friendly meal for lunch.

Sometimes there’s traffic jams or hot outside in Karachi, and sometimes, female employees don’t really feel to go outside for having lunch. So, there are certain good restaurants and canteens that offer budget meal deals along with food delivery services with dine-in servings as well. If the restaurant is too good and doesn’t have the delivery option then you can always call Bykea.

So, today if you are confused on what to order and where to order, just decide what you want to eat and pick your eatery from the range of cafes and restaurants to fill your cravings.

Biryani

A typical Pakistani’s life revolves around biryani. This is one of the sacred things our food menu looks incomplete without. When one can’t decide what to order, the mind immediately hints at biryani. And there's a thing with Biryani lovers - you can tell what you're coming up against only with its scent. The famous place to get your biryani cravings filled are Allah wala biryani centre (Tariq Road/Nazimabad), Bismillah Biryani (Gulshan Iqbal), Ghousia Nalli Biryani (Liaqatabad), Jeddah (Boat Basin), BOW (Bahadurabad), Baba Biryani (Shahra-e-Faisal), The White Biryani (Boat Basin), BOTS (Boat Basin). The list actually goes on but these are the tried and tested ones.

Desi Food

Some are the days when you just crave for the desi and traditional style of menu especially when you are missing ghar ka khana. So the options like Karhai, Nihari, Haleem, BBQ Tikka, Kabab, Handi, Qeema, Katakat, and Chatni Roll never get old and some restaurants and online delivery services provide you with the good taste with quantity. You can try Tandoor, Kababjees, Ideal Restaurant, Indian Kitchen, Javed Nihari, Mazedar Haleem, Foods Inn, MK Cuisine, U’s Bistro, Chullu Kabab Sistani, Hot and Spicy, Royal Ice & Spice etc.

Chinese

A real Chinese food lover will never compromise on taste and quality. This is the reason I have gathered up some of the traditional and authentic Chinese restaurants that are good in taste and in budget too. You can order food from Mei Kong, La Chine, Ginsoy, Royal Ice and Spice, Chop Chop Work, China Town, Golden Dragon and Yung Tung.

Singaporean Rice / Khausay

Singaporean Rice is actually considered as a part of Chinese cuisine and Khausay as a Burmese food. In Karachi, some eateries have developed the taste buds for the Khausa and Singaporean lovers that they prefer at lunch hour due to its rich flavour and good serving size for full appetite. Some highly recommended places to order are SpicOgetti, Food Break, Biryani Chowk, Kashif Foods and Khausa Villa.

Fast Food/Burgers

Since the coolest option left in the K-town is Fast Food. Juicy and cheesy burgers, shawarma, pizza fries and grilled stuff would never go heavy on the pocket. Kaybee’s, Bon Bistro, Foods Inn, Eatino, Red Apple, The Burger Patty, Food Lab, Food Break, Golden Fork, Arabian Fast Food, Potadose, Chilli Chilato and Chips Fast Food are the reasonable and good places lately.

So, what are waiting for? All you have to do is decide on, pick up the phone and order the food. Happy Lunch!
