Biryani is the national favorite dish of Pakistan so its obvious that Karachiites are always in search of the best (or better) biryani out there. A perfect plate of biryani consists of some aromatic rice, tender chicken/beef pieces and a wide variety of some of the most perfect sides like raita and salad; Raita to provide some coolness to spicy biryani and the Salad to add some crunch to every bite. For years, people have preferred to eat homemade biryani instead of going out to eat but over time, that perspective has changed and people have slowly started to discover these hidden gems located all around the city.

What’s really interesting about these new Biryani places is their names which play a major role in attracting customers. When I first heard of Baba Biryani, I was not sure if I should spend money and try a new place, but I am so glad that I did. Now it’s one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite from. Both their Chicken and Beef Biryanis are extremely palatable and have a good kick to them. There is a variety of different Raitas and the Salad is also reasonably priced and always fresh.

Rice Station only offers dishes that are made with rice so if you are in the mood for some hygienically prepared dishes then this is the place for you.
