Renting a house in islamabad, is almost imposible!!

Islamabad is considered for its beauty, which is adorned by green trees and fresh flowers everywhere. It has big buildings, wide roads and lash green mountains. Being the capital of our country it is considered quite expensive. It is true that from pencil to a building everything is expensive. Here I will talk about the rent of houses in Islamabad

Shadra…

I have blogged about Shadra before. What I would like to tell you about Shadra now is that if you want to hop in at an extremely beautiful place and have pakoras and kababs while diving in fresh cold water in the midst of margallah hills, get yours friends, take a couple of towels, wear your bermudas and go to Shadra.

Table Talk

If you’re looking for place with an ambience to match the comforts of good food with good company, you have to try Table Talk in Kohsar Market, F-6.

It is cozy, warm and gives you the feeling of home and hearth. The menu is limited but the servings are plentiful and quite geneous even when you talk about the salads. The soups and crepes are good but their desi style food is unbelievably good. It is spiced right and quite fresh and tastes like good, sold comfort food of old yore. Do try their vegetable thali and I have it on excellent recommendation that the chaat thali (an assortment of dahi bhalley, chana chaat, gol gappey etc) is also very very good.

There is nothing like sitting outside under one of the large blue umbrellas on the brick sidewalk that makes up Kohsar market enjoying the weather with a good cup of coffee and a nice helping of cheesecake or chocolate cake.

So, the next time, you want informal environ and good comfort food, try some table talk…
