Well, living in Karachi, we are always overwhelmed by so many options that it is hard to choose where to dine out, so we’re here to give you some suggestions as to where your next dinner or lunch should be. It should definitely be at the new Burger Lab Innovation Kitchen!
All of us have been eating from Burger Lab’s scrumptious burgers for as long as we can remember – so what’s so different in this new innovation kitchen, you might ask? Well, as the name suggests, this new outlet by one of the most famous burger franchises in Pakistan is all about innovation! Located at Khayaban-e-Seher, with a chill, cozy, yet fancy vibe, Burger Lab has introduced an Innovative Menu, and it is oh so good. Believe us when we say, there hasn’t been any place in Pakistan that makes you want to keep going back for that Honey Glazed Burger (our favorite from the menu). The other items in the innovative menu also include Honey Glazed Chicken, The 3 Musketeers (sliders), and Bounty Shake.

KASHMIR Are All Ready to Release a New Single ‘Ayi Bahaar’
One of the greatest discoveries of Pepsi Battle of the Bands has to be the 2017 Winners of the competition KASHMIR, an alternative rock band from Karachi that really came and conquered. The group which consists of 6 members has been making headlines with their music ever since. They finally satisfied their fans with their debut studio album ‘Khwaab’ last year. The album was critically acclaimed and reminded us of all of the reasons as to why we fell in love with this band in the first place.
Well, after much anticipation, it looks like KASHMIR is finally putting out new music once again and we are genuinely thrilled. The band teased the arrival of a new single ‘Ayi Bahaar’ on their Social Media, and fans have been patiently waiting for the single to drop on the first of October.
The name of the song is enough to tell us that the song might somehow be related to everyone’s favorite season (Spring aka Bahaar!) and so we have reason to believe this is going to be a fun and funky song. The cover art for the single looks amazing too and we can’t wait till we can listen to the song.
KASHMIR has managed to rise to fame in this very competitive music industry with their original sound and beautiful lyrics. Since Pakistan has started to see some growth in the music industry – it is extremely rewarding to see how this new band is taking center stage and bringing us some brilliant music while they do that!
