EATING OUT
----------
ALTHOUGH WESTERN AND CHINESE DISHES ARE AVAILABLE IN MOST
LARGE CITIES, THE VISITORS WILL MISS A NEW EXPERIENCE IF
THEY DO NOT TASTE THE PAKISTANI CUISINE. WESTERN CUISINE IS
ALSO SERVED IN ALMOST ALL-HOTELS AND RESTAURANTS. BE
CAREFUL AS THE FOOD IS VERY TASTY AND WHOLESOME, BUT LIKE
THE WATER IT MAY NOT SUIT YOU.

TYPICAL MEALS
-------------
MEAT, FISH AND VEGETABLE DISHES ARE SEASONED WITH SPICES.
PARTICULARLY PALATABLE ARE THE GRILLS AND BARBECUES.
SEEKH KABAB - MINCE GRILLED ON A SKEWER
SHAMI KABAB - MINCED MEAT
TIKKA - BARBECUED MUTTON
SAJJI - BARBECUED LEG OF LAMB.

PAKISTANI MUTTON AND CHICKEN CURRIES AND THE ORIENTAL RICE
DISH CALLED PULAO ARE ALSO POPULAR WITH FOREIGN VISITORS.
NUMEROUS VARIETIES OF SWEET DISHES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE.

DESERTS:
SHAHI TUKRAY - SLICES OF FRIED BREAD COOKED IN MILK OR CREAM,
SWEETENED WITH SYRUP AND TOPPED WITH NUTS AND SAFFRON.
FIRNI - SIMILAR TO VANILLA CUSTARD.
HALWA - SWEETMEAT MADE WITH EGGS, CARROTS, SOOJI AND NUTS.

TYPICAL DRINKS
--------------
INTERNATIONAL SOFT DRINKS ARE AVAILABLE. THE LOCAL DRINKS
ARE LASSI AND SHARBAT.
LASSI IS MADE BY MIXING CURD WITH WATER AND SUGAR OR SALT
(POPULAR IN PUNJAB PROVINCE) AND SHARBAT IS JUST EXTRACTS
OF FRUIT (FAMOUS IN SINDH PROVINCE, ESPECIALLY MANGO JUICE)
BOTH OF THESE DRINKS ARE VERY REFRESHING IN THE SUMMERTIME.
