Hot N Spicy Lahore BBQ - Review by Aqeel Ahmed
Ordinary name, ordinary atmosphere but extraordinary paratha rolls. Lahories have only a few places where we can find paratha rolls. Karachiites, on the other hand, are 'blessed' with numerous choices of paratha rolls that can be found in every nook and corner of the city. My today's review offers you a comparable (if not better) option - Karachi Hot n Spicy. They have around 15 different paratha roll styles. Some of them are really creative selections, such as German cheese rolls, Chicken malai with cheese rolls, Behari roll, etc. You can also order a chicken cheese platter, which has everything as that of a roll except the roll itself (shown in the picture). Taste is really good, I won't give it a 10 out of 10 though.
They serve a number of other Desi and Continental options. Karahi is good but not as good as Butt Karahi (reviewed in the past). You can also try their Cheese naan. Nicely molten cheese evenly spread inside a fresh, oven-hot tandoori naan. It is good but immensely rich and greasy... so try it carefully or you'll lose your appetite and therefore a chance to cherish the lovely paratha rolls.
Located in the middle of H-Block food street, DHA, Lahore, the facade of this restaurant is really bad. A wide kitchen on the ground floor hides the shady and small entrance to a basement hall, which is the sitting place for customers. If you can ignore that, you are in for a treat.
Price range: Rs. 150-250
