There existed certain consternation in my son’s mind as we drove towards his school for a parent-teacher meeting. He was expecting not a very good result in the monthly assessments, but on the contrary he got above 90%. How was a father to reward him for a performance that far exceeded our expectations? I had this surprise visit planned for my family but just could not spare the time for it. So I drove them straight to the recently opened Magnum Pakistan (Karachi) in Clifton, near Boat Basin to be exact! The drool on my younger son’s face was obvious and the family was more than happy!
Located on Shahrah e Faisal Karachi, opposite the PAF Base, is this eatery, that is majestic in appearance from the outside just as much as it is from the inside, called as the “Lal Qila”. I went there once a couple of years back and loved the food, just as much as I did yesterday. It is a “must visit” place for foodies, and dare I say if you are not a foodie it will turn you in to one, but for an hour or so, considering the profuseness of dishes not to mention their taste which by all standards are unique and exquisite.
