Bangkok express noodles | 895 pkr
Delicious thai noodles coated in lovely lemongrass infused spicy sauce with perfectly cooked prawn (can be substituted for chicken if that's more to your taste) and stir fried beans. The seating and service at @estreetmews is exceptional. A wonderful dish that I would definitely go in to get again. [Note: this is half the portion size]
A cold, rainy and windy Lahore calls for steaming cups of chai and garma garam samosay 🤤.
I've been a fan of Awesamosas' caramelised onion samosay forever and when my sister-in-law told me they've started doing two types of potato samosas as well, I knew I had to make a trip there very soon.
So when some friends and I were to meet a few weeks ago, I suggested we meet at Awesamosas. It's a bit of a dilemma deciding where to meet during hours that aren't meal times. And when I want chai & snacks, I usually want desi style ones, such as pakorray, spring rolls, samosay etc.
Soon after placing our order at Awesamosas, we were served piping hot samosay and strong cardamom chai in small chai khaana / tea "staall" style glasses.
Both the cheese and potato samosas and the spicy Hyderabadi potato samosas were all I had hoped they would be. Samosa heaven indeed! We had them serve the khattay aaloo and channay on the side and there was a chutney and a creamy sauce served with the samosas as well.
My friends also had the pizza samosas and the dum ka qeema samosas. We ordered another round of samosay and chai and later the good folks at Awesamosas sent over a third round of karrak chai with their compliments.
Judging by the mostly glowing reviews of Awesamosas at the recent Karachi Eat 2018, chances are they might set up shop in K-Town in the near future.
On a slight tangent, I'm happy to know of places like Chupa Rustom in Karachi that are trying to revive Karachi's Irani Cafe culture. Parsi favourites like Kejriwal Eggs, Akuri and the Per Edu dishes - things that I would see on the menus of places like India's Soda Bottle Opener Wala Cafes and hope that someday we too might see the kind of Irani Cafes make a comeback that my mother grew up around in Karachi - she remembers the names of nearly all the cafes of that time and speaks fondly of the ones she and her family used to frequent.
I think I need to pay Awesamosas another visit today - the weather demands it ❄️🌧.

Laksa | 600 pkr
Boldly advertised as the 'best laksa in town' this hearty winter menu meal does not disappoint. This Malaysian soup and noodle based dish is of the perfect thick consistency and texture to happily fill you up on its own. With a delightful melody of herbs and coconut milk and with a generous amount of delectable prawns, tofu and chicken dancing around in the delicious, creamy, aromatic broth, this dish has become my hands down favorite at @chopchopwok and I really hope they move this to their permanent menu because people will definitely be coming back for more!

Lunch @koelcafe .
Tried Prawn Tempura, Wasabi Prawns & Thai Style Chicken.
Let's first talk about the ambiance. I enjoyed my lunch after a looonnnggg time. Cafe is beautiful and reflects Noor Jehan's artistic aesthetics but what i loved was it was also very Serene and White. Ahhhh I totally enjoyed sitting outdoors in this perfect weather.
Prawn Tempura: I really enjoyed perfectly coated-not tooo thick- prawns tempuras with sweet chilli sauce.
Wasabi Prawns: By now you must have realized my love for sea food. Wasabi prawns were again cooked to perfection with not too strong not too mild wasabi flavor.
Thai Style Chicken served with Garlic Rice: Well it was more of desi Chinese style chicken rather than Thai Style and reminded me of Chicken Manchurian. According to our server it is supposed to be spicy but it was more sweet and sour kind. Having said all this, taste was not bad. But to enjoy it you need to forget that you have ordered thai style chicken 😂
