Recently, I came back from a month long trip to Lahore – the culinary capital of Pakistan.
Lahore, has a wide variety of cuisine, from fancy upscale Italian restaurants to the simple Pakistani village food and everything in between.
A few tips for those of you who may be traveling to Pakistan soon:
1. Get Your Shots – Before you Travel (Currently Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Polio and Malaria are the main diseases in Pakistan)
2. Don’t Drink The Water – unless it’s Bottled and Sealed (Nestle PureLife is the most reliable brand)
3. Don’t Eat Street Food – unless it is fried up, steaming hot, or cooked well done! Avoid eating anything cold or something made with water.
If you follow those 3 simple rules, you should be fine and not get sick!
Below is a short slideshow of my trip through “Foodistan” aka Lahore this past February. I hope you enjoy the pictures, as much as I enjoyed eating all the delicious food:)!
