I’ve always believed in innovation when it comes to photography or any other art form. Flat lay photography is one of the rapidly trending genres which has taken over social media lately. When I was approached by Coca-Cola to participate in the #CokeAndMeals campaign, I was ecstatic to give my take to it and bring out some #RealMagic of photography!
So here’s a flat lay picture of an intimate dinner which I shared with my wife, as we enjoyed a delicious meaty steak with a juicy burger that was enhanced with some chilled Coke — because any food table becomes a #MagicTable with some good ol’ Coca-Cola on the side!
I often come across this question on different food forums that which are the best restaurants to eat from in Lahore, so i decided to make a list of my favorites. These are purely based on my opinion and current taste, and it can vary time to time. Here’s my list and why:
■Arcadian Cafe – I have always loved their ambiance, service and food quality. Whenever im in a mood of having continental food and have guests along, it is my safe place to go. It surely tops my list! ■Spice Bazaar – I am a huge desi food guy, but i prefer spice bazaar for their sunday brunch only. I think no one is offering a better desi brunch than Spice Bazaar. ■Espresso – Consistent good decent food! ■Rina’s Kitchenette – Excellent food and service. I love their whole wheat thin crust pizza the most! ■Koya – I haven’t tried all of its menu but boy it’s beef burger is the best I’ve had in Lahore. All the beef burger fans must go and give it a try. NOW! ■Howdy – If you are looking for all types of yummy burgers and steaks (it is very famous in Lahore btw), and want to experience the real cowboy mood, it is the place to go! ■Zafar Halwa Puri – If we are talking about food then how can we miss halwa puri! Zafar Halwa Puri is situated in Anarkali and the best part is you can get mayda and aata puri, both, from there. Good quality and feels light on the stomach! ■Nehari – I am a huge nehari fan but recently it has been musical chairs picking my favorite between Mohammadi (Mozang) and Waris (Pesa Akhbar). Please be very specific to these branches! ■Yum Chinese – Hands down the best chinese food which has been consistently good in Lahore ■Cosa Nostra – If i ever feel like going for a beef steak, i go to Cosa. I simply love their steak! ■Taste Factory – I came across this underrated gem in samnabad and i was surprised! Beautiful interior with remarkable price range, and on top of all brilliant continental and chinese food. They definitely have their own niche of awesomeness! ■Bundu Khan – I love their sajji (Best in Lahore) at Qadafi branch! Apart from that, all their desi food is pretty decent and full of taste. I wish they add wheat roti in their menu as well. I often skip eating from here due to the roti factor, as i prefer wheat tandoori roti over khameeri roti and naan.
So far these are my top picks in Lahore. It varies time to time, and mood to mood. If i have missed any good eatery, do mention in the comments below. Happy eating Y’all!
I normally do not take my professional camera at cafes but this was right after my shoot. This pandemic is definitely making me miss all the travel and delicious food. These photos were taken at Karon Beach.
