Gun Smoke, A Takery?
Why, O Why would you simply ruin the very essence of Gun Smoke service by making it a mere ‘Takery’?
If you have been to the Gun Smoke joint in Lahore or Karachi, you would know exactly what I am talking about. The place is known for its ‘seemingly rude’ and ‘raw’ service and that is what adds flavor to the whole Gun Smoke experience. When I first heard that they are opening in Islamabad, the news was as good as strawberries with cream! But a takery? What are they gonna do? Dress up people as cowboys and make them take your order… and then throw the bill at you through the small window (they literally crumple up the bill and throw it on your table back in Lahore/Karachi). If you had to open a branch in Islamabad (it’s still the Capital isn’t it?), why would you need to be such a miser at that? Spend some money, rent a bigger space and make a proper night out of it! Trust me, it would be appreciated more than leaning against a railing in the Islamabad winters, awaiting your order to be delivered through the small window.
I’d rather go to Lahore to fully enjoy the Gun Smoke experience than stand in a line with my order receipt awaiting for a cowboy to ‘yee-haw’ my name and throw a bag of food at me!
Bon Appetite People!
