A Taste of Tradition
With so many cafes and restaurants dotting Karachi’s landscape, it can be hard for a new entrant to the scene to make its mark. Yet, Dhaaba, which opened on January 9, is unlike other eateries.
Located on Khayaban-e-Bukhari, as the name suggests, Dhaaba has a touch of antiquity in its dÃ©cor. With a cosy atmosphere and an ambience that pays tribute to traditional Sindhi culture, the look of the restaurant is like that of a village, with wooden chairs and tables, glossy golden pots and embroidered wall hangings.
What truly stands out about Dhaaba, though, is its delicious menu. Special dishes include doner kebab, shawarma and barbecue items. The restaurant even offers a variety in the rotis they serve, which include sheermal and taftan. The desserts, especially the cheesecake, chocolate fudge and kulfi, are mouth-watering.
