      In Rawalpindi, the best chaat shop is located in Commercial Market, Satellitetown... Its infront of Commercial Park...

      The best samosa shop in Pindi is located in Saddar, and is called Kareem Samosas... Its been there for a while now...

      The best mithai award goes to Fresco Sweets Rawalpindi... Nerala and all dont even come close. However, for barfi, you gotta give it to Rasheed Sweets in Saddar again.

      The best halwa-poori award goes to Pehelwaan in Banni Rawalpindi...

      The best naan shop is located infront of Jehangir Restaurants, and theres this khan baba jee who runs the shop alone at 85 years old, but hes a really nice guy and these days hes very ill so you all pray for him. Hes such a nice guy that we have so much trouble paying him as he doesnt accept it.

      In islamabad, the best restaurant and pizza shop award goes to Papasallis... We have been going there since the first day, i.e. in 1991 and its been excellent.

      Best Ice-cream, Im not sure, either PM house Rawalpindi, or Hot Spot F7 Islamabad.

      Best tikka kabaab award should goto Xenos Melody Restaurants Islamabad, infront of British Council.

      In Islamabad, theres also this Agha Khani samosa shop in Molody Market G6, those keemey walla samosas are killers!!!

      wow..you seem to have good taste and know pretty much all food places in islamabad/pindi !!

      "Best Ice-cream, Im not sure, either PM house Rawalpindi, or Hot Spot F7 Islamabad."
      which flavour and what about Falooda there!!

      "theres this khan baba jee who runs the shop alone at 85 years old, but hes a really nice guy and these days hes very ill so you all pray for him. "

      we will pray for him. BTW, do they sell Sheermall/Taftan there as well!!

      For Falooda, Rashid Sweets, Saddar Pindi...

      For Sheermaal, the best place would be banni, where they make 'em fresh!

      Oh, and another thing which is special to only Pindi are the 'baakarkhaanis'!! Those with tea are the best treat!!

      Agreed with Spock on everything so far. To add to this:

      1. Grotto kee Jalebi on Murree Road (There is only one original Grotto)

      2. Kareem (The samosay waala guy) ke Kasmiri Chai

      3. Bismillah Kulcha House (Madina Market F-8) kay keemay bahrray naan

      4. Bolan (Blue Area) ke Sajji.

      Spock any recommendations for a good Chinese place in Islamabad/Pindi?

      About Lahore, where I was in college for a while the following places one has to visit.

      1. Beaden (spellcheck) Road for its Halwa Puri.

      2. Nishat close to Lakshmi Chowk for the Lamb Chops.

      3. Riaz Milk house for kulfa faluda, Kashmiri Chai, Rass Gullay, Tootian, Lassi

      4. Regal Chowk for Dahi Barray.

      5. Anarkali for the simply excellent Murghi kee nihari.

      6. Gawaal Mandi for Hareesa.

      7. Dar ul Mahi (and most places in Mozzang) for thier excellent fried fish and Pakoray.

      8. Bhayyay kay kabaab and Lemon Soda in Model town. (I think the Lemon Soda in Islamabad/Pindi is better)

      9. Aroos Juice house for absolutely the best Falsay kaa juice. (For other fruits especially Anar, Peach, Apricot etc. you have to go and visit Quetta)

      10. Right next to Aroos juice across from Liberty is this Gannay kay rass waala (Sugarcane juice).....they sell the nectar of the Gods.

      11. Mango Milkshake....many places mostly in Gulberg and Mall Road.

      Will add more as I think of them.

      Yar, I cant believe how I missed Grato ki jaleb in that post!!! Yes, you are right, there are many Gratto shops on Murree Road now, but the original one is the bomb!! Also, anyone who goes there should ask for a paper bag and not a plastic bag as the jalebis arent crisp if you keep them in the plastic bag.

      I tried Bolan's sajji once, wah!!!

      Muffakkar, glad to see someone who has tried all that stuff in Pindi

      Next time you're in pindi, drop a line, and we'll go for some sabaz chai to Kareem's. We will even take ahmedbhai along

      As for Chinese, Mainland china (think it got closed) in saddar used to be good, and cheap too. Right now I'd say the great wall in Isloo might be good, but personally I stopped going to chinese restaurants...

      There is tehla walla opposite the daak khana in Lalookhet that sells the best chohlay and dahi baday in Karachi. Also, if you ask nicely, he may even sell you some rounds for your Kalashnikov.

      some of the best Italian food I ever had was at PASTA on Jail Road in Lahore. Lasagna was awesome.
      Their salads are great and chicken dishes are also good.

      The Village Restuarant (located in Lahore) was a really good restuarant, when I dined there it was packed with tourists people. They have every Pakistani food there everything from the street stalls to the gourmet dishes set up in buffet style, you eat all you want after paying a fixed price. The outside is real nice to it is designed like a village house with (if I remember clearly) a patched roof and mud brick walls (all fake of course, don't expect it to be the same on the inside).
