Making food decisions in Karachi is not easy especially if you like to eat out. There is always something happening – something new that is fighting to catch your attention and then there are your regular favourites that you can’t go without.
If you are a fan of having flame grilled chicken (who isn’t?), we have got some exciting news!
Pepe’s Piri Piri has now officially arrived in Karachi. For the uninitiated, it is an international food chain based in the UK and it also already has a presence in Lahore and Islamabad.
We went to check it out and here are 5 reasons why you should also – STAT:
REASON #1: SAUCY AF
If like us, you were also getting tired of seeing how much spice you can handle, fret not. Pepe’s Piri Piri has some really interesting sauces which they use to marinate the chicken and you can also ask for them separately. The Mango & Lime sauce is a really interesting concoction and quite different from the usual sauces available in other eateries. We recommend you get these with your order of flame grilled chicken.
Other sauces available are: Lemon & Herb, Mild, Hot, Extra Hot and Extreme.
REASON #2: DID SOMEONE SAY RICE?!
Their Chicken & Rice is one of the bestsellers on the menu and that should come as no surprise because just look at it. It is served with saucy chicken strips while the freshly cooked rice also contains a kick of spice. Definitely order this for the table when you go!
REASON #3: THE FLAME GRILLED CHICKEN
Their flame grilled chicken was truly our favourite thing out of everything we tried on the menu. The best part is that it is not kept frozen but procured fresh everyday. It is well-marinated, juicy and will have you licking your fingers even if you have it without any other condiments and sidelines.
Pro Tip: Order it in a mix of two sauces. Yes you can do that! We mixed Mango & Lime with Mild Spices.
REASON #4: BURGERS, WRAPS, FRIES, PERI BITES
You can actually order a variety of items. You get burgers, wraps and more but we definitely recommend the fries with the Piri Piri spice kick!
AND the Piri bites. Thank us later! 😉
REASON #5: THEY HAVE VEGETARIAN OPTIONS
From a vegetable burger to paneer wraps, they have quite a few options and we actually might just go back to try these next.
