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:

Milk House

The new openings of departmental stores, restaurants and dairy shops are on the verge. The opening of the departmental stores are on the top the list and I think restaurants are on the second and the dairy shops are on the third number. Because of each month, one or two openings of departmental stores, restaurants, and dairy shops are expected. And honestly, I am bored to constantly writing about these undemanding venues which we’ve already got more than required and they’re not creating any buzz, except the eat out places. However, these new openings still need an update because maybe the new one would be of better quality than the old ones and have the essential standards to precisely fit into the market and give the customers what they’ve been looking for.

 

So, there is another dairy shop I’ve spotted today in sector D, which is Milk House, opened on last Friday. Its first branch is located at the main Barki Road and they came to Bahria Town all the way from Barki Road to set up the second branch. Now, they’ve two branches and probably whenever any second branch opened by any business that means the first one has been getting a positive response. And, like others, they also claim that all of their dairy products are farm fresh, organic, and free from any mixing. We all know that every dairy shop has this same declaration and they will never say that their products are impure. So, the only way to check that whether Milk House products are fit for consumption or not is that we need to use it and then we can find out about its purity and quality of taste.

 

Well, Milk House has eight different dairy products to sell out and you can find the rates of each product below. All of their products are uniquely packed and the prices are also moderate. Free home delivery is a must thing in Bahria Town and they’re offering this service. Here is the contact number and address of Milk House.

Archery Academy & Horseback Riding Club In Bahria Town

Bahria Town being an entertaining and opportunistic place is creating an effect on each class to be a part of it. It has raised the standards of living and making its residents a priority by providing prodigious amenities and facilities. Most importantly Bahria Town targeted the imaginations of middle class and lower middle class people, to give them affordable yet state of the art lifestyle simultaneously. That is why, in Pakistan Bahria Town is now one of the top trend setter private housing society and get the unprecedented response and success in a very short period of time.

 

Now almost everyone is well-accquianted with the fact that the facilities in every project of Bahria Town can not be found in any private housing society of Pakistan. I’ve been told by many who have experience living abroad that despite of few minor factors, the lifestyle in Bahria Town is entirely as staisfactory as living abroad. To support this statement further, here are the two stirring recreative activities which must not be missed by being a Bahria Town’s resident.

 

  • Archery Academy
  • Horse Riding Club.

 

Archery Academy:

A research indicates that Archery was first adopted by ancient Egyptians about 5000 years back. In Olympics, it has a separate category and has seven different disciplines according to distance. Though it is one of the coolest and most sophisticated sport to occupy yourself. But the inclination towards Archery wouldn’t been compelling in Pakistan despite few insignificant followers. There are very few numbers of Archery Academys in Pakistan, and I’ve heard only about one notable academy that is ‘Pakistan Archers and Archery Academy’.

 

In Bahria Town, outdoor Archery Academy is completely operational for the residents, with a professional instructor, imported equipments, Bows and Arrows. In recent days, a tournament was also being held in Bahria Town Archery Academy, which was also covered and witnessed by many media channels.

Location:

Archery Academy in Bahria Town is located at Sector C, adjacent to canal road and near to Bahria main Gate.

 

Membership & Monthly Charges:

Every resident can join Archery Academy and take part in this sport. The procedure is simple to register yourself as a member. Membership registration forms are available at sports office in cricket stadium, sector D. Months back, registration fee was Rs. 2500/- but it is now increased to Rs. 5000/-. And monthly fee is the same as before, which is Rs 2500/-.

 

Timings:

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

 

Training & Practice:

Stretching and flexibility is the key to Archery. In Archery Academy you will get all the essential training by a professional trainer. For stretching training, you have to purchase a stretching band first. Other than that, to start your Archery you should have a well-balanced workout including:

 

  1. Walk & Jogging.
  2. Strength training.
  3. Cardio.

 

Accessories & Equipments:

Though the game looks simple by having an Arrow and a Bow and start hitting the target. But, actually, it is more than that, because the equipment for this sport is much costly than it seems. Bahria Town Archery Academy has its own basic equipment. However, if you’re willing to join Archery Academy, you must have your own equipment and all other accessories to make a start.

 

  • Bow.
  • Bow String.
  • Arrow.
  • Nocking point.
  • Arm Guards.

Benefits Of Archery:

Well, it seems like that it’s a passionless activity and the demand of Archery have been underestimated. But when you would try it, you will get to know how difficult is to shoot an arrow. If it wouldn’t professionally handle, it may also cause some serious injury to shoulders, arms and elbows muscles. Here are the few benefits of Archery:

 

  1. The main hidden feature of the Archery is mental foucs. When you practice Archery on regular basis, it will termondusly increase your focus on every other task.
  2. It will also help you to overcome procrastination and distraction in normal life.
  3. Practice Archery helps you to gain control over your body.
  4. It will also increase your upper body strength.
  5. Archery can be frustrating at first but eventually it will give you more patience.
  6. Archery is one of the sports that can be practised by all ages.

 

Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas(R.A) narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Hold on tight to Archery as this is better for you”. Or he said, “It is the best from your games”.(Hadith)

 

Horse Riding Club:

Have you ever heard before that anyone in Pakistan have a resident facing horse riding club or a horse barn, just a few steps away to his house? No, because especially in Lahore there isn’t any option like that before Bahria Town first introduced the concept to provide this best facility to its residents. Firstly, in Lahore city, there are only few horse riding clubs that are active and most of them have been established in recent years. The only option we had earlier was the Race-Course horse riding Club and the monthly charges in Race-Course Riding Club are I guess 10 to 15 thousand or even more. Other options, like Garrison Golf & Country Club and Lahore Polo Club etc, are way too expensive and you have to face the burden to buy its membership. However, the only obstacle is that these horse riding clubs aren’t approachable to every common citizen, because of its costly membership and distant locations.

 

Lahore & Rawalpindi Clubs:

In Bahria Town, first horse riding club was established in Rawalpindi’s Bahria Town. The Horse Riding Club in Rawalpindi is located at Saddle Lounge in Phase-4, along with the cafe, restaurant, and a bar. Due to its approving response by the residents, Bahria Town also built Horse Riding Club in Lahore and opened it at the start of 2015. Both of the Horse Riding Clubs in Lahore and Rawalpindi are fully operational for the residents. And emerged as the most captivating and signature facility of the Bahria Town.

 

Horse Riding Club Lahore:

The dilemma to ride a horse was finally settled when I have the most economical and accessible option in Bahria Town. Because, before that in my school life it was an unapproachable thing for me to satisfy my craving for horse riding. Now it is extremely easy to join this Riding Club for any horseback rider devotee as compared to any other riding clubs in Lahore. It is one of the best places in Bahria Town to spend your outdoor quality time. Moreover, they’ve also professional instructors and offers few courses to each skill category. The riding club is open for both residents and non-residents without a burden of expensive membership.

 

Location:

Horse Riding Club in Bahria Town is located at Janiper Block, Sector C. Initially Bahria Town was planning to build a cricket stadium at this location, but after Sector D, stadium Bahria Town had turned that area into Horse Riding Club, Rose Garden and Football Academy.

 

Stable & Number Of Horses:

The stable in any Horse Riding Club is the most favorite place for many. When they launched Horse Riding Club in Bahria Town Lahore, only three to four horses were available at that time. But recently, when I visited its stable, which is on the back side, it is unbelievable for me to see that there are now more than fifty horses and all of the horses are in ready condition for the riders. One of the workers out there told me that, most horses are owned by Bahria Town and few of them are belongs to Ex-President Zardari. Couldn’t able to captured all of the horses, you can see some horses in above-mentioned picture.

 

Membership & Charges:

To join a Horseback Riding Club is quite easy and same for kids and adults. Monthly charges are Rs. 5,000/-( Registration charges are included).

 

Timings:

3:00 Pm to 5:00 Pm (Winters)

 

A Complete Workout:
It may look like that only the horse is running and getting all the exercise, but it required a perfect balance, strong muscles, and stable core to stay on horseback. Horseback riding includes all your body parts to handle it and it is the perfect whole body exercise. And I must say to those who are willing to join a fitness club to reduce their weight, horseback riding will help them in fitness and you can get beyond to a basic gym routine.

 

Everything with which a man amuses himself is vain except three (things): a man’s training of his horse, his playing with his wife and his shooting with his bow and arrow.( Hadith)

 

Islam has also emphasize to learn three things in life as a Muslim, Archery, Horseback Riding, and Swimming. So, we should at least understand the basics of these activities. All of three activities are open for all to get the best experience with best facilities while residing in Bahria Town.
