5 Eateries to try in DHA Lahore that were away from your Sight

Published

on

Most of us are in severe pang of guilt for the fact that we never heard of these few amazingly delicious food outlets and our busy and hectic schedules do not let us enjoy our “free time” in the most coziest places around the town. At the same time, most of us are guilt-tripped for not trying these best places in the vicinity and probably there is a big possibility that we did not even know about them. It is time to get out of this blame game because The Daily Paperazzi has got some top of the range food places that are away from the hustle-bustle of everyday life at Lahore and we are here at your service to provide you a few glimpses from the best eateries that are scrummy and nummy at the same time with definitely the best ambiance.

Please do not forget that theses places are located in Phase 6 & 8 of DHA, Lahore; a little far away from the mainstream food courts in Defence phase 1,2,3 or 5.

We have chosen 5 restaurants and we are sure that you are going to love these restaurants that are a real fusion of desi, Continental and Chinese cuisines etc.

Patli Gali

 

 

 

 

 

 

After searching a lot on Foodies R Us, I got to know about this over-hyped place that is home to best desi cuisine. If you are dying to give your taste buds some real touch of traditional food; this place has got you covered. We loved their appetizer serving which was the Zeera water served in small shot glasses. The scrumptious shots were accompanied by a finger-licking Qeema Naan as an appetizer. For the desi cuisine loves, you are going to love their delicous chicken Karahi and Palak Paneer. Who else does not love big chunks of paneer? Well, we all do (secretly). The Daily Paperazzi’s best was the Tomato Paneer.

The story does not end here. Later on, we were served with hot Lamb chops along with Beef Cheese Burger.
Since each food is incomplete without some meetha and that too in a traditional style, yes, we were provided with some delicious gulabjamun that were a total bliss at the end.
In our opinion; The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and they knew how to make their customers feel comfortable.

This is a 10\10 from our side, people. Go and check it out if you haven’t already.

Slate Eatery 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It rarely happens to have some restaurants with mind-blowing good techniques learnt from some highly engaging international courses on cooking and hotel management; This is what Sara (the head chef) has brought to her eatery. We remember the time when we saw her being super kind to her customers because there was some issue with the food. It is high time that we started understanding that customer is always right (no matter what).
Now coming back to their blissful menu; their classic cinnamon and chocolate-dipped Churros are a pure haven.

If we talk about their Lotus Biscoff Sundae, then, hands down this is definitely the best ice cream I have ever tried so far. The best part about this eatery is their extraordinary service into putting an extra effort and bring the best on table along with extremly reasonable prices. With the government changing and ruining our budget, places like Slate are always here to keep us sane whenever we want to get into a good food coma.

Chai- Yes, at first, this was the word that instantly took my attention. I will not lie that the best thing about the place was definitely a cup of chai but I cannot just completely ignore the much hyped Hi-Tea platter that is a perfect order for two. Easy on the pocket and fulfilling at the same time; these are the two things that totally lack in most of the restaurants but this place has not disappointed us at all.

This place is highly recommended for a great and economical get-together. The ambiance and customer service is the best part of this place.

BLVD 56

Starting from a lavish drink called Angel Eye drink (mini shots) and proceeding to some best seller in their restaurant; guess what was the first dish? It was Tempura prawns. Never in my bad dreams, I would experience seafood except for fish. But, they were kind enough to replace that with some succulent Cordon Bleu along with a mustard sauce. Yes, I liked that. We totally loved their drinks i.e. Revitalizer and Gobbler. The mouthwatering session ended with our favorite signature Three Milk Cake and Cheese cake dipped in strawberry sauce.
Overall, it was a great experience. Always remember, the good service can overshadow any mishaps that happen in a restaurant and from our side, their service gets 9\10.

Donjon Pizza

After people’s huge recommendation, we had to try this over-hyped place and to our surprise, it was not bad at all. We got to try their Fajita, Donjon Classic, Donjon Signature, and Beef Pepperoni. The only thing that they need to learn is how to interact with their customers. Yes, their unprofessional behavior put me off but, I really hope that they would work towards it but regardless of what happened; their pizzas definitely deserve a try and we are pretty sure that you are going to love each from their different varieties.

Stay tuned for more honest reviews at The Daily Paperazzi.

Speaking at the sumptuous launch, master franchisee and Spa Ceylon Pakistan’s CEO Saeeda Mandviwalla, said, It gives me great pleasure to be able to bring Spa Ceylon to Pakistan because for me it is more than just a brand; it is a brand affiliated with my heritage & identity. Being from Sri Lanka originally, it is with pride that I bring a piece from my birthplace to my current home; and the benefits of this brand will be felt by all age groups of the population.”

Spa Ceylon now produces over 500 all-natural Ayurveda inspired personal care, wellness, make-up and home aroma products. The complete range comprises prestige skin, body, bath, scalp and hair care preparations, oils, balms and potions, colour cosmetics, home aroma blends, candles, diffusers, incense, herbal infusions and gourmet teas, handmade stoneware, bath accessories and a range of tropical resort wear.

Attending the opening, the co-founder director Shalin Balasuriya explained, “The continued growth of the international wellness market to over US$ 4.2 trillion signals a strong shift in consumer preferences towards wellness. Spa Ceylon occupies a unique lifestyle space where personal care meets wellness. Given its brand attributes of high-performance authentic formulations, Ayurveda origins, environmental activism and ethical sourcing, it will continue to resonate with the modern consumer to drive further growth.
