Whenever we talk about fast food, the most common franchises that come into our mind are McDonald’s, KFC, Hardees, Burger King, Pizza Hut etc. Obviously, they are popular worldwide and have been operating in Pakistan and especially Karachi for about two decades. Even travelling abroad, they are considered one of the easiest options available. However, in Karachi, food business is one of the most competitive businesses. Over the past few years, some local fast food franchises are setup with good food taste and relatively lower price. So the few which I have tried, I would love to quote them in this blog
- OPTP (One Potato Two Potato)
Opened as a fast food outlet famous for their fries, they have expanded their business to one of the best fast food restaurants in Karachi. Still famous for their fries, burgers and fired chicken is also served in their restaurants. I would recommend to try their fried chicken, masala fries and jalapeño beef burger (Double stack also available) which are my favorite on their menu.
- Burger Lab
Another out let famous for their burgers and curly fries, they have a unique characteristic of providing a buzzer whenever the customers place their order. The buzzer rings as their order becomes ready to be picked from the counter. However, a part from this, I recommend you to try their Smokey Fusion and Lab’s Original Burgers with curly fries.
- Oh My Grill (OMG)
Same a Burger Lab, Oh My Grill known as OMG also offers similar cuisine of fast food. Swiss Mushroom Melt Burger and Classic Burger Single burgers are good choices for a tasty meal there. Furthermore, you have a choice for upgrading your burger to double patty by adding a little amount.
- Big Thick BurgerZ (BTB)
Located just a couple of steps from OMG, BTB proves a nice competitor for its rival. The one’s I have tired are Swiss Blue cheese which they claim is their specialty and Little Dangerous containing Brazilian chilies. Just like OMG, you also have a choice of upgrading it to double patty but it also has a choice to upgrade your burger to Big Thick i.e. to upgrade your patty from 100 grams to 175 grams. It is worth a visit for a change of taste.
- Broadway Pizza
After having burgers, let us shift to pizzas. Broadway pizzas is one of my favorite fast food chains that offering pizzas, sandwiches and pastas. Offering pizzas in 10, 13 and 20 inches with an awesome taste, I must say you better try them once. Apart from the size of the pizza, they also offer a choice for stuffed or thin crust. I recommend stuffed crust and for the choice of pizza, do go for Wicked Blend.
- Pizza Crust
If you are looking for a better pizza with low price, you have the choice called Pizza Crust. The one closed to my home doesn’t have a good dine in service so I opt for either pizza delivery or take away. They also offer pastas and sandwiches. My favorites on the menu are Malai Boti and Mix 2 for Pizza choice and Chicken Lasagna for pastas.
