What’a Paratha Is Active

Though it was expected to open in the first week of April, after a little delay What’a Paratha has finally opened in Bahria Town after Jalal Sons. And, I was expecting a strong and snappy advertisement before it’s opening but I didn’t see any billboard or road streamers in Town. Today, I saw the ’Now Open’ banner of What’a Paratha and before writing here I informed my brother about this and he said, it is just a banner the building is still empty and they haven’t started serving. Well, do not get confused like him because of the huge banner of Now Open which is hanged above the empty building and What’a Paratha is actually operational in the adjacent building. So, go and get your hands on Parathas!

 

Timings:

Opening time: 11:00 AM.
Closing time: 2:00 AM.

 

Location:

What’a Paratha is located at the main canal road, adjacent to Yasir Broast and PSO filling station.

Opulence Designer Cake Lounge

After a long time, here is something different to write about because usually all the new openings are encircled to restaurants and departmental stores. Well, this time its a cake bakery that has opened two weeks ago by the name of Opulence Designer Cake Lounge. I took the above picture and got to know about it for more than a month ago but didn’t catch up with anyone there to get the details of it until today.

 

Well, you can easily get special cakes from various bakeries in Bahria Town but as per my information Opulence, Designer Cake Lounge is now the only cake bakery in Bahria Town that offers customized handcrafted cakes. Similarly, Bakers ville (which is one of the finest bakeries in Bahria Town) also have the option for us to get customized cakes but selling handmade cakes isn’t their core business and they’ve limited choices of cakes.

 

So, for now, Opulence Cake lounge is solely offering all kinds of handmade and fondant cakes for each occasion. According to them, Opulence Bakery in Pakistan is first cake brand that meets the intercontinental standards of cream da le cream and all of their cakes are made with quality and satisfying taste. You can take a look at their cakes by visiting Opulence Bakery’s official Facebook page and website. Here are the types of cakes:

 

  • Fondant Cakes.
  • Birthday Cakes.
  • Wedding Cakes.
  • Signature Cakes.
  • Custom Cakes.
  • Designer Cakes.

 

Orders & Charges:

I think the most appealing feature of Opulence Bakery is that you can have the choice to order any design of cake choosing by your own and show them the picture of your desire cake and you will get it done. The order must be placed before 24 hours of delivery.

 

Charges:

They charge Rs. 1000/- per pound and it is same for all designs and types of cakes.

 

Despite having online services, Opulence Bakery first branch is also operational in Phase 5, DHA. And its a second branch in Bahria Town.

 

Location:

Opulence Designer Cake Lounge is located at Jasmine Block, Sector C, Commercial zone, behind girls hostel, adjacent to Pan & Grill Restaurant and near to Bahria Golf & Country Club.

Bread & Bean-Cafe & Grill

 

Opening a new restaurant can be risky, especially in Bahria Town almost every restaurant owner is in throes of getting a favorable response from the residents. Of course, restaurant’s food taste, services, and ambiance is more important factors but I believe a right spot for the restaurant plays a significant role to make it a success or may turn out to be a dud.

And, we all know that not every location is right for a new restaurant and I was wondering and couldn’t get an answer why every newly opened restaurant chose Sector D’s location for a start? As  I have already mentioned in one of my updates that Sector D is the most unstable spot for any kind of business. It is my concern and do share your thoughts in comments why so many restaurants prefer this area because we have been observing many knockouts from Sector D.

Well, in Sector D there are already 8 restaurants that are serving including Mcdonald’s and 4 restaurants out of 8 are opened over the time of two months. There is another restaurant that has opened recently by the name Bread & Bean-Cafe & Grill. I haven’t seen any road hoardings or heard any news before and after its opening. However, I saw it today and the balloons caught my attention while passing through AA block, and got its menu card which is attached below.

Discount Offer:

Bread & Bean-Cafe & Grill is offering flat 20% discount on the entire menu. This discount offer is valid on the dine-in, take away and home delivery for one week and you can still have 3 days to avail this discount.

Locaction:

It is located in the basement, 62- AA Block, Sector D. It is adjacent to Smokehouse Grill and opposite to Lahori Khabay, which are also opened a few days ago.

Timings:

Opening time: 1:00 PM.
Closing time: 1:00 AM.

Karachi BBQ & Biryani

There are few eatery options that only operates during the part of the calendar year and doesn’t require a year-round commitment. Some food businesses only float up and rely on the certain interval of weather and wouldn’t have require 24/7/365 commitment. For example, winters are a great time for grilled & fried fish places and the consumption of fresh fruit juices boost up when the summers go harsher. Only a few names work through the fall and winter as a sweep and enjoy the downtime through spring and summer.

 

But, I was wondering lately that the restaurants which are in striving phase and only be in the business either in summers or winters what will they do when the season changes?I think for those, there are only two options either they wipe out or they change the nature of their business, both of the options are strenuous. That is why, we’ve been facing too many closures in Bahria Town.

 

And here is the one example that made it through for now. Kashmiri Chai which was opened last year in December, they were only  selling Kashmiri Chai and haven’t secured much attention of customers even in winters so how can they manage it in summers? But, last week, they have totally changed its nature and changed it to a restaurant by the name of Karachi BBQ & Biryani. Now, they started selling all kinds of Barbeque items, Barbeque Biryani, and fast food items, you can get biryani in lunch time and Barbeque in evening. I’ve attached its menu card below.

Location:

Karachi BBQ & Biryani is located at 105, Side B, Jasmine Block, Sector C, Commercial zone, adjacent to G.M cables.

 

Timings:

Opening time: 12:00 PM.
Closing Time: Until Midnight.
