The unbroken chain of the opening of new restaurants in Bahria Town isn’t a new concern for us because every month one or two new restaurants openings is a must thing. Similarly, we’ve been witnessing that every year before Eid the momentum of new restaurants is on turbo mood. I am saying this because in a duration of one month I’ve already written about three restaurants, today is the fourth one and after that two restaurants are still remaining to update here.
So, after Burger Fix, Pizza Pizzaria and Pizza Max here is the fourth restaurant which is Desi Food. This eat-out spot has opened a couple of days back but I didn’t come across before. I saw it yesterday got the picture and it’s menu card to share here. Its a typical desi restaurant offering all desi foods including, Desi Nashta, Parathas with different flavors, a list of snacks in its tea time section, burgers and shawarma. . They also have famous street food Pathoray and Ladoo Pithi which I think you can not get anywhere in Bahria Town. And, its a second branch in Town the first branch is operational at main boulevard Izmir Town. Well, the only thing that bothers me is that this type of restaurants in Bahria Town mostly fail to meet customer’s expectations and couldn’t able to maintain their business for long due to the underwhelming ambiance and disappointing seating arrangements. Share your thoughts as well how do you see the future of these kinda restaurants in Town.
Here is the menu of Desi Foods restaurant:
Desi Foods restaurant is located at D market, Shaheen Block, Sector B. Next to Jugnu Hair Salon and Baboo’s tandoor.

Maybe I am not a burger fan but I do know that from where you can get best juicy burgers in Lahore. However, in Bahria Town, the scenario is different, though we have a widespread list of fast food restaurant offering a variety of burgers. But, there are very limited choices that solely sell burgers other than Timmy’s, Mcdonald’s, Reckstar, and other international chains. Recently, two burger shops (The Grill Spot and Smash) stopped serving and permanently closed and moved out to other locations. Now, after these two burger shops here is another newly opened burger shop:
Two months ago, I saw the opening soon board with the name of Burger Fuel. I visited the stop to get some information but at that time there wasn’t any activity at the branch and no one was there. So, I called on the numbers mentioned on the board and all of the numbers were switched off. Then, almost two weeks ago the name on the board replaced by Burger Fix, I’ve attached both of the pictures before and after the name changed. One of the guy at the shop clear my confusion about the name and he told me that they were facing some name issue regarding its registration so they changed it.
Well, the second branch of Burger Fix in Bahria Town’s D Market has officially opened on Monday, 7th May. Its first branch is located somewhere in DHA. The menu card of Burger Fix is quite simple and they’ve only seven different flavors of burgers which includes both chicken and beef options. You can get free home delivery within the town but there isn’t any opening discount.
Opening time: 05:00 PM.
Closing time: 02:00 AM
Burger Fix is located at D-Market, Shaheen Block, Sector B, opposite to Yummy’s 36 restaurant and next to Shaukat Khanam Laboratory. Previously, Adil Barbeque restaurant was operational which was closed a few months ago.

After a long stand by the second branch of Freshly by Metro has finally opened in Sector B. The opening soon board was placed in February and like the first branch, it also took almost 3 months to finish all the renovation and finishing work out there. The soft opening of this store was held two days ago and today was the official opening which was held after 2:00 PM. This store is same as the other freshly stores in Lahore.
Well, one thing I noticed that maybe the parking space will going to be a problem for the customers and store because it isn’t convenient as the first branch of freshly. And, I mostly get stuck on this specific road in the evening where the store is located. But, still for all the freshly’s frequent customers the D market’s parking has ample of space if it utilizes properly.
Freshly by Metro second branch is located at D-Market, Shaheen Block, Sector B. Adjacent to Hot n Spicy restaurant and opposite to UBL.

The above kinds of shops especially for kids are rare in Bahria Town and you can hardly find a few shops that have the cone machine. And, despite its quality and hygiene problems you still can’t resist your kids not to visit. Actually, with a little pocket money, waffle cone ice-creams are best mini treats for them in the summers. This shop has opened a few days ago in D-Market and offers different flavors of cone ice-creams, shakes, coffee and other snacks.
I think they charge Rs. 30/- for small scoop and Rs. 50/- for large. A similar shop was also opened months ago by the name of Wido Waffle Cone Ice-Cream in Jasmine Block, Sector C. Well, it’s a slight update but in telephone directory, you can check all the available options of ice-creams that are available in Bahria Town.

Undoubtedly, public transport is helping out thousands of people to reach anywhere on daily basis. Especially, Uber and Careem are the blessings for those who do not own any type of vehicle and make their lives a lot more easy than before. I’ve also noticed that many individuals despite having their personal vehicles still prefer Uber and Careem facility due to the traffic issues. Surely, by using these means of transportation you can get yourself to any location without rushing and long searching of public transports like old times. Nowadays, it is just a matter of one click to get a cab or auto at your precise spot.
But, the main reason behind this post is that due to any problematic reason if you are unable to reach any transportation means then Bahria Town has allocated two different location for Rickshaw–Stands without hampering traffic flow for other vehicles. You will easily find Auto Rikshaws at these stands, available 24 hours a day and they are not allowed to park anywhere in Town. Here are the locations of both stands:
The first rikshaw stand is located at Talwar Chowk, Sector C, behind Gourmet bakeries and Metro Heights, Talwar chowk is also a stop for coaster buses. The other rikshaw stand is established in Sector B, near to Eagle Heights and the main entrance of Safari Villas.
In the last few days, two new mobile shops have been opened by the name of Music Town and Ibrahim Mobiles. Both of the shops are selling all kinds of mobile and laptop accessories and have the option to buy an old and new phones of every brand. And if you’re looking to stock up your DVD collection then Music town is the choice. Because, comparatively it has the maximum collection for all type of DVD’s in Bahria Town.
Music Town Location:
Music Town mobile & computer shop is located in eagle heights, Sector B, near to Safari Villas.
Ibrahim Mobiles is located at Zainab Centre, Sector C, commercial zone, near to Ravi Restaurant and adjacent to Hira pan shop.
Freshly is a subsidiary departmental store of Metro Cash & Carry. Its first launched in Lahore, at the end of 2016 in Allama Iqbal Town. The second store of Freshly was opened in Bahria Town last year in July. Not long ago, they’ve placed the opening soon banner of it second branch in Shaheen Block, Bahria Town. You can also check the complete list of all departmental stores along with contact numbers and addresses by clicking here.
Well, the reason of the second branch of Freshly in Bahria Town is quite obvious. Because since the very first day of its opening they’re getting a favorable response from the residents that allow them to expand it within the Town. And I think there are three major reasons behind this, firstly I’ve noticed that every other week Freshly came up with different promotions and discounts (like Metro stores). Secondly, they’ve secured a very attractive and easily accessible location at the main boulevard. And, above all, it’s convenient and hustle free car parking area and I believe it is one of the attractive key features of Freshly.
When To Open:
The official opening of the first branch of Freshly in Bahria Town took almost three months. And according to the authorities of Freshly, the second branch would be active by the end of March or maybe the first week April.
It will be active in the same building that you can see in the above picture, which is located at D-Market, Shaheen Block, commercial area, Sector B, adjacent to Hot n Spicy restaurant. Though the location of the second branch isn’t impressive the first one because this area is a little bit congested and in the nearby area we already have Green Valley and other stores.

Only the front board has been placed yet, the renovation work is in process. Most probably it will be opened by the end of this month.
