Food post

Pakistan so far has been a wonderful experience. I am just amazed at the warm nature and generosity of the Pakistani people. Every street or bazaar that we walk pass the people will think that we are from China(due to their friendly relations with China) and once they know that we are Malaysians they are very happy and will be offering us drinks or food which is really great because it has never happened to me before, even in my own country I don’t get this kind of treatment Ha Ha Ha! When I was in Lahore I frequented this popular Tikka eatery(mostly for take away) and the man who is in charge of cooking the meat will hand me a skewer of chicken tikka everytime im there, I get jealous stares everytime 🙂 Chicken seems to be main meat consumed here as it is the cheapest followed by beef and mutton. Mutton is really expensive as it is mainly exported to Iran and Saudi Arabia. Cannot get my lamb fix here 😦 Maybe I will have better luck in Iran 🙂 Enjoy the food pictures.
