Mark Wiens, the American traveler and food blogger based in Thailand, recently traveled to Pakistan for a 16-day trip in which he vlogged his food adventures and wrote a travel guide about the what people, places, and of course food in Pakistan has to offer.
Mark just released the first episode of his Pakistani series in which he travels throughout Lahore eating some of the most famous street foods across the old city
The people of Pakistan are (kinda) ecstatic about his visit
I’ve never seen anyone talk about Pakistan with this kind of excitement in their tone and glimmer in their eyes. Thank you Mark Wiens (@migrationology )for you honest feedback on our beloved homeland. Long live Pakistan 🇵🇰 ❤️ https://t.co/dWzlHAK1KQ

Mark stated on his blog that throughout his trip, he met some of the most hospitable people, saw the most spectacular scenery, and ate incredibly delicious food.
During his Pakistan tour, he visited Lahore, Gujranwala, Kot Yousef, Islamabad, Mardan, Peshawar, Skardu, Shigar, Deosai, Gilgit, Hunza Valley, Khunjerab Pass, and Karachi. What a trip that must have been.
In the first episode of his Pakistan series, he travels throughout Lahore eating street food.
He starts the day with halwa puri, pera lassi, then moves on to chana chaat, spicy shakarkandi, kulfi, Butt karahi, chicken tikka, fried fish, spicy lamb chops, and umm is your mouth watering?
The best part of the video? Mark’s expressions while tasting all the delicious food
And people have noticed that
Can you blame him, though? Lahori food is just THAT good
One of the greatest things about the video is that it showed people all over the world a more positive and peaceful picture of Pakistan
and we should be proud that Pakistanis are known all over the world to be some of the most welcoming and hospitable
This video definitely shed some light on the rich culture of Pakistan and it’s amazing food
