Caution: Some images will make you nauseous!
One of the most famous features of Lahore is it’s food. You’ll often hear Lahoris rave about how great the food is in the city. And for the most part, they’re right. Unfortunately, some restaurants have not been keeping up with hygienic standards. As a result, The Punjab Food Authority has emerged as superheroes to keep the restaurants in check. Here are some famous places in Lahore they have caught red handed, that you should probably avoid.
1. Benazir Kulfa
One of the most famous Kulfa places was sealed due to poor hygiene.
Tum kitney keeray maaro gey. Hur kulfey say keera nikley ga.
2. Ze Grill
This grill of filth was sealed due to keeping unlabelled food items, left overs in the freezers, no proper facility for washing utensils and just poor overall hygiene.
Let’s hope they have’t been serving unorthodox meat…
3. Copper Kettle Cafe
Different place, same story. The cafe was sealed due to poor premises hygiene, improper storage, dirty freezers.
Their infamous Cake Alaska dessert doesn’t sound so appealing anymore.
4. Bundu Khan
Ah, Bundu Khan. A well established restaurant chain. You’d think they’d know better but they don’t. One of their branches was sealed off because one of the washrooms was directly opening into the food preparation area, there were abundant flies in the kitchen, no proper labelling on food items, no medical certificates of food handlers, uncovered food, poor personnel and premises hygiene. Basically bad news.
Sure their food might taste great when you eat it. What can happen after, you probably don’t want to think much about it.
5. Cock and Bull
We all love their shawarmas but even they have been a culprit of poor hygiene and cleanliness. No wonder it comes with a personal guarantee of uncontrollable shits.
If you are constipated, you know where to go.
6. Yousaf Falooda
This gem of a place in Qadaffi Stadium was sealed off due to dirty freezers in addition to poor premise and personal hygiene.
There goes my post iftar falooda cravings. These bastards.
7. Gourmet Sweets n Bakers
You might love them for their prices but multiple Gourmet locations have been sealed off on account of keeping/selling expired food items, the presence of flies, mosquitoes and rodents on edibles.
Don’t be a cheap ass and get something less filthy.
8. Chaman Ice Cream
Their ice cream is amazing! We wish we could say the same for their cleanliness.
Remember the mango ice cream you had? It came from this premise.
9. Yasir Broast
If you haven’t tried Yasir Broast yet, you are in luck because they got fined due to unhygienic conditions, open dust bins, poor personal hygiene and leftovers stored in freezers.
Why did the chicken cross the road?
10. Nirala Sweets
Their production unit has been sealed 3 times due to no hand washing facility, unhygienic conditions, open drains, poor personal hygiene, animal waste near food items, improper food storage and dirty utensils.
Most of their locations have closed down for a reason. Not so Nirala eh?
11. Fri Chicks
They copied KFC in terms of cuisine. Hygiene wise, not so much. Fri Chicks has a copyright over their unhygienic conditions.
Might as well just eat at home. Unless you really want some fried shits.
12. Jamin’ Java Cafe
They have been jammin with their poor personal hygiene, poor drainage system and uncovered dust bins.
We hope the cafe in the Lahore LUMS campus is cleaner.
13. Salt n’ Pepper
The famous family restaurant was sealed due to unhygienic conditions, poor personal hygiene, dirty freezers. One of their customers got a cockroach served in his soup. Yuck!
I’m craving their club sandwich *slaps himself*.
The infamous Cafe Zouk on MM Aalam Road Gulberg has also been caught by the Punjab Food Authority. Click here to find out about how other famous disgustingly filthy eateries are in deep shit.
