    Seems like everyone is adding places but nothing much form Multan so here goes;
    Zanzibar: Steak is really good.
    Shangrilla: Newly opened a few days back and tried it yesterday. Kashmiri pulao is good.
    Cafe Time: A place to hang out and good Milk shakes or Fruit Juice.
    Tasty: Biryani and Black Pepper Chicken Karahi
    Dilmeer: Good Peera and exceptional Lassi

    You all are most welcome to visit any time and enjoy these paces with me as Host :)

    I quite like the place in Qisa khani bazzar that does that delicious fried fish.

    Also some very nice keer and kulfi available near the same place,and depending on the season gaajar ka halwa as well.


    Oh man all this talk of food together with all the lovely guns is making me homesick, I think I need to book my PIA flight sometime soon.

    though there r many good food places in sgd but the famous of all is "jhaal chakyan ki daal". they have many branches in city and suburbs. anyone who gets a chance to be in sgd, give it a try and u won't regret m sure.

    Baking Virsa (Gawal Mandi, in street at the end of Old Food Street)
    Best Kashmiri Food
    Like you are not born if you have not visited Lahore, you have not eaten if you have not tried Baking Virsa.
    It is a small place but quite exclusive and expensive as well. You need to resrve and place order one day before your visit. You are given one hour window to get served. If you are late, you food may not be served but will be given to you packed.

    I have had fish all over Pakistan but the best fish I ever had was in Kabul at very unlikely place. That was KFC at Shahr-e-Nou. Not the real one but Kabul Fried Chicken. Their desi food section serves special fish which is not on menue but to demand. The fish, as they say, is caught from River Ammo (Tajikistan Border). Whole fish (of course after cleaning) is first BarBQed directly on coals and then wrapped in Aluminum Foil.
