Back than when i was working as a banker, i was told that “its a sin not to go outside for a friday lunch”. With time i understood the underlying meaning of this statement. Friday lunch break was like a blessing, a shinning star in your gloomy week and something to look forward to while you hang in there and wait for the weekend to come.
Friday lunch culture is very common among work circles and if you religiously follow this norm you know already how important it is. Everytime me and my husband visit our hometown we still meet our friends over friday lunches. This time around we went to this ‘cosmopoliton’ in clifton.
Honestly i had little hopes of having good food when my husband initially told me about this place we were heading too. When you are hungry, you would rather try something old. But luckily i was wrong. The ambiance is quircky with catchy lines and scenes painted all over the walls particularly about karachi. The place had a good amount of lunchers when i entered.
I was thinking about the pasta first but when i saw the menu i opted for parmesan chicken with a side of steamed rice and sauteed vegetables and it turned out amazing. I loved every bit of it. The cheesy crusty roasted top of panko parmesan with an underlying layer of soft cheese and nicely done chicken fillet. This one was a winner for me. The drink that i ordered was strawberry pina colada and it was equally good. I really enjoyed my meal.
