Jimmy’s Snooker Club

‘Snooker club’ is the best place to spend some leisure time for many of us. And if you are a true snooker devotee than you will get to know how important these snookers clubs are. Well, for me it is certainly refreshing,  to hear about the opening of new Snooker Club. However,  the availability of these snooker clubs are insufficient. Many of the snooker clubs are way too crowded and have limited number of snooker tables as compared to the cueists. In Bahria Town, we have many options for ‘A’ standard snooker clubs. There are more than five snooker clubs are active in Bahria Town, i.e Strickers Snooker Club, Friends Snooker, Black Snooker Club etc.

 

Now recently, there is another snooker club in Bahria Town that has opened by the name of ‘Jimmy’s Snooker Club’. The soft opening of this snooker club was held about two weeks ago. But now its been three days this snooker club has officially opened. Jimmy’s Snooker Club has more than 8 snooker tables. Normally, you will find no more than 4 snooker tables in any snooker club. So, the number of snooker tables is quite sufficient so far to avoid waiting. Currently, there is no separate refreshment area or canteen in this club, but in the meantime you can get ‘Coffee, Chae and Cold drinks’. Secondly, they are planing on it, to establish a proper canteen and will be available in a few days.

 

Discount offer:

The price of one snooker set is Rs 120/- before discount. But due to its official opening in Bahria Town, they’re now offering flat 20% discount. Furthermore, they have not decided yet when this discount offer will  end.

 

Location:

Jimmy’s Snooker Club is located at 221-B, Titanium heights, Tulip ext block sector C commercial zone. It is near to Bahria Golf & country club and honey beans restaurant.

Am Pm Salon & Talent House


AM-PM salon & talent house is another barber shop that has opened few days ago in Bahria Town. It is the third barber shop that opened its doors in town over the period of one month. The other two shops are ‘Cuts n Color’ and ‘Chicago scissors’. For the time being, there are now twenty to twenty-five barber shops that are active in Bahria Town. You can check all the details of barber shops in our telephone directory.

 

AM-PM salon & talent house, is one of a kind shop. Because, this barber shop is somehow different from others in many aspects. Firstly, when I visited this shop, I was surprised by the interior looks. It is totally elegant, classy and distinctive from many other barber shop that are operational in whole Bahria Town. They have secured a wide space for everything and decent area for sitting. Secondly, all the staff and stylist of this shop looked more professional than usual, all of them are wearing the same uniform that makes it more executive.

 

Shop Attraction:

The most attractive and unique part of this shop, which I perosnally liked it, is that they have different types of games in their shop. Arcade games, small table of snooker, chess and arrow hitting target game, all are set for the customers. And the surprising thing is that all the games are free of cost out there for its customers. For all of us the most annoying and matter a lot, is to wait for our turn in any barber shop. But, now I believe that this is the best thing to kill time to play these games while waiting there, without paying extra money.

 

Talent House:

When first I looked at the name I started wondering what actually  talent house means and what they’re upto. So later I got to know that besides barber services, they’re looking for passionate models who are willing to start their career as a model. And if they found anyone will be enthusiastic or passionate in it, and have a potential in them,  they will be promoted further. They will also make a portfolio for the individuals without any charges.

 

Discount offer:

AM-PM salon and talent house charge slightly high for their services as compared to other shops. But, I think the services and environment they’re providing for the residents, then these charges are justified. They charge Rs 500/- for cutting and Rs 150/– for beard. This barber shop was opened in Bahria Town few days back, due to this, they’re now offering flat 30% on all of their services. This discount offer is valid for the entire month of November.

Crosta 11 Barbecue

Winters are now here and there are many things we always wanted to have in winters. Well, one of them is grilled food, that is always an essential thing that we need in every season. But ultimately in winters, the consumption and craving for grilled food increases. Many Barbecue enthusiasts still struggling to find a right place where they can get perfect grilled and mouth-watering Barbecue. For Barbecue, it is hard to find perfect combination of marination, perfectly cooked internally & externally, and most importantly it should be hygienic. Well, there are many options for Barbecue in Bahria Town but only few of them are satisfying. Almost every restaurant have Barbecue items on their menu along with other foods, but not all have the ideal and exquisite taste for our buds. I haven’t tried all of the Barbecue options in Town, but here are the review of one of them which I recently tried and that are quite satisfying and good value for money so far.

 

Crosta 11 Barbecue:

If you’re a Barbecue lover and still haven’t find a true Barbecue spot, then Crosta 11 is one of the option for you in Bahria Town. Crosta 11 was opened in Bahria Town this year, few months ago. They have put much more effort to make it different from other restaurants in town. Somehow they’ve manage to give much needed services, taste and best possible ambience for the residents. Recently, Crosta 11 also gave flat 20% discount on whole pizza menu. Few days back I went to Crosta 11 and tried its Barbecue. It has the complete range of Barbecue food including Chicken tikka, Malai Boti, Seekh Kabab, Reshmi Kabab, Fish kabab and Fish tikka.

 

Personal Experience:

My experience of Barbecue out there was perfectly up-to the mark.Because, first of all, the taste of all its products is fresh, well cooked, and the spices are balanced. They aren’t much spicy but if you want to have maximum piquancy then you’ve the option to get topped up more ‘Masala’ later. Their Rashmi Kabab, Chicken Tikka and Fish tikka are flavrous as compare to their ‘Malai Boti’ which isn’t much delicious as it should be more soft and juicy. Most importantly, any Barbecue without pure ‘Mint Raita’ and special ‘Sauces’ is totally waste. No matter how good the taste is, without these two things you won’t be satisfied. Moreover, their Mint Raita is fully healthy, in which you find small amount of tomatos, cucumber and black pepper. The yougurt they used in Mint Raita is totally pure without any addition of water. Secondly, they’ve two kinds of Sauces served with Barbecue with no extra charges. The dipping sweet and sour sauces of your choice are made with natural ingredients and it looked fresh. And how can I forget about their ‘Roghni Naan’?. It is much better than regular Naan and highly recommended rather than plain or simple Roti. Because their Naan are Crispy yet soft and makes ideal collaboration with Barbecue. I haven’t tried other Naans, they’ve also Kalvanji Naan, Garlic Naan, and plain Naan. The price of Roghni Naan is Rs 35/- and the price of Kalvanji Naan is Rs 40/-.

 

They have ample of indoor and outdoor sitting space, two things can make your Barbecure feast double, if the restaurant has rooftop and patio sitting plans in this winter. So for those who are looking forward to have a hot, fresh and warmer Barbecue with outdoor sitting then Crosta 11 is of the best options we’ve in Bahria Town. Cleanliness, overall atmosphere and services are appropriate and you’ll witness it on your visit. Here are the prices of its Barbecue mentioned below:

 

Prices:

Chicken Seikh Kabab: Rs 600/-
Malayi Boti: Rs 700/-
Chicken Tikka: Rs 495/- *limited*
Fish Kabab: Rs 700/-
Fish tikka: Rs 800/-

 

Location:

Crosta 11 is located at 211-B, sector C tulip block. Opposite to Bahria golf & country club. And also few minutes drive away from Grand Jamya mosque and Gulf centre.

 

Due to some reason I was unable to take the pictures of the food and everything. But from now onwards I will make sure to capture everything perfectly to share it here. Now if you have not tried this place yet than you should make a visit. Share your reviews about it and other Barbecue experiences below in comment section.
