Hardee's Karachi Review by Sadaf Farooqui
Hardee's, the international restaurant chain that boasts of "Charbroiled Thickburgers", recently opened its first outlet in Karachi, located near Five Star Chowrangi in North Nazimabad, among much excited anticipation on the part of the ardent foodie dwellers of the City of Lights.
The outlet is right next to Nando's. There is ample parking space in the side lane on which it is located. By reaching there we had to waitfor 2 hours in the queue outside before we were able to get inside, even though it was a weeknight.After a 2-hour wait outside, there was a half-hour wait in the queue inside. The ground floor is very spacious and an extremely clean outlet. . Insidethe seating arrangement includes sofas as well as dining chairs around tables which gives a very nice look. There is also a free refill counter present on the even more spacious upper floor.
There was no dearth of places to sit in the outlet, despite the crowd thronging in. There was also a more secluded section on the upper floor.
And this floor also had a children's play area, but it was closed at that time. Coming to the menu which was printed on a placard inside on the wall and looked quite nice. So at last we ordered Mushroom & Swiss Burger with Cheese, with French Fries and a regular drink, for Rs 354, besides that, we also had theBest burger, which I haven’t eaten in ages, even though in principle I try to avoid beef. I had ordered Onion Rings with this combo, but they were out of them. We also got our hands on the Original Thick Burger with Crispy Curls and a drink, Rs 450.
The Crispy Curls, which I had for the first time, were also too good...much better than fries, in my opinion. Also9 Chicken Stars (nuggets) for the kiddies. Priced at Rs 233. Last but not the least,despite being full, because of the ample-sized meal, we took a milkshake for the road (a drive of 50 minutes back to Defense awaited!), as we knew that it would be difficult for us to visit this Hardees’s outlet again anytime soon.
Verdict: An all new and improved fast food eatery which serves delicious food and has a new taste which I personally adore.
