Best Pakistani Foods to Put on the Table


Pakistan is a country with a diverse and cosmopolitan culture. People of different beliefs, races, and languages live in harmony and make the most of life in the country. But one thing that is a key unifying factor is the food. And cities like Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar, and Quetta are hot destinations for a variety of delicious cuisines. Here are some of the most popular Pakistani foods.


While Biryani is the most likable food among Pakistanis and almost cities offer this delectable dish, Karachi stands out in terms of the taste and variety. So, what’s the secret? Its unique spices and method of cooking that make this food a different experience altogether. In fact, the description of Karachi is complete without its special and flavorful biryani.


Nihari is another irresistible Pakistani food, but once again, Karachi stands out when it comes to the mouth-watering, spicy variety that is barely offered elsewhere in the country. Not to sound biased, but the nihari you find in Karachi is unbeatable; it’s just out of this world. You can find a variety of nihari in Lahore and the flavors there are also unique and rich, but not like the one you find in Karachi. As they say, the taste of pudding lies in its eating!


This is a traditional Pakistani food and almost every city has this on their menu. Haleem is a simple, porridge-like food, made from wheat and meat, garnished with lemon juice, chat masala, coriander, ginger, and caramelized onions. If you are looking for something light and healthy, then try haleem.

Bun Kabab

This is one meal you will find in every city of Pakistan. It is a simple burger-like dish, but is far from a typical burger. Mostly spicy, the bun kabab tastes great and is generally served with fries. What makes it a favorite is the mouthwatering, juicy bites that come with the spicy chicken or beef kabab inside, garnished with cucumber, sauces, and sometimes, tomatoes or onions.
