By Haadia Paracha | 17 Jul, 2016

It’s ABSOLUTELY burning up outside, aapke dil ke ilava aaj tou bahir bhi aag lagi hui hay. Your forehead is laced with beads of sweat, you look out the window at the brazen sun that can give you a tan just by looking at it and the idea of an icy cold sugarcane juice is just about the only saving grace of this godawful summer spell.

Isn’t this a tale right out of your summer season experience?

Now, I cannot risk oversimplification by stating the mystic properties packed in this drink called gannay ka ras. From clearing out your skin or shrinking belly fat to combating cancer, there’s more to this delicious concoction than simply being a cooler to beat the heat.

Here are some of the best places you can grab that delicious cup of sugarcane juice, come mid-day, evening or the dead of night in the city that never sleeps; Karachi:
