This is Day 2 of our trip to Pakistan. In this video we went on a Pakistani street food tour of the Walled City of Lahore, one of the oldest and most fascinating areas of the city. The Walled City is a maze of ancient alley, street food, and markets that never seem to end. It’s one of the best places in Lahore to explore and go on a food tour.
Phajja Siri Paye – This restaurant is a must eat when you’re in Lahore, famous for serving a dish called paya – goat trotters stew. Their massive pan, which I believe never stops bubbling or cooking, is packed full of goat feet trotters that slow simmer until fall apart tender. It’s a deliciously thick and meaty Pakistani dish to start your morning.
Total price – 1,300 PKR ($9.70)
Haleem – During my time in Lahore, haleem was probably the most surprisingly delicious dish I encountered. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be much, but sprinkled with boiling desi ghee, and seasoned with spices and herbs, it was truly incredible – so good I had to have a plate re-full. He wouldn’t charge us, thank you!
Wazir Khan Mosque
Dahi bhalay – 100 PKR ($0.75) – Next on this street food tour of the Walled City of Lahore, we came across a stall selling dahi bhalay, yogurt marinated lentil puffs. It was delicious and refreshing.
Chole bhature – 30 PKR ($0.22) – Next to the dahi bhalay was chole bhature, a dish of stewed chickpeas, seasoned with onions and achar pickle.
Fruit chaat – One of the best Pakistani snacks of the day was the fruit chaat, a massive bowl of chopped fruit, seasoned with apricot chutney and pomegranate. Again, he wouldn’t charge us, thank you!
Dhaba restaurant – Finally to finish this food tour, for a late lunch we went to a local dhaba, a local street side restaurant, that served a mix of Pakistani food. It was here I came across the fastest roti maker I’ve ever seen and we ordered a mix of different curries to share. After a delicious meal, we ended with dude pathi, pure milk tea.
Total price – 850 PKR ($6.34)
Badshahi Mosque – After our late lunch, we headed over to Lahore Fort and Badshahi Mosque, two of the most significant and historical sites of Lahore.
It was an amazing day exploring and eating through Lahore, a city that’s packed culture, history, friendly people, and delicious food.
Again, massive thank you to Ali, from Pakistan Travel Mart for hosting us in Pakistan, taking us around, and organizing everything.
