Psst. Have you downloaded the Hungerist app yet? Its available on iOS and Android.

The Sweet Tooth started out as a small ice cream and dessert parlor in Lahore only a couple of years ago. With the help of their visionary owner, Umer Hussain, Sweet Tooth is now in multiple locations across Pakistan (we recently wrote about their location in Heera Mandi). Exploring new territories is one of Hussain’s favorite things to do as a restaurateur; this time, it’s Sweet Tooth Attabad Lake.

Yesterday, The Sweet Tooth opened up beside the blue, glimmering Attabad Lake in Hunza

Umer Hussain made the announcement yesterday on the popular Facebook group, Foodies R Us.

Let’s take a minute to appreciate the beauty that is Sweet Tooth Attabad Lake

Imagine sitting here in their wooden chairs, enjoying some chai or coffee along with one of their brownie, ice cream sizzlers and admiring the beauty this lake is.

This logo, by the way, is an insanely cute tribute to the culture of Hunza

Attabad Lake, also known as Gojal Lake, is situated in Hunza hence the cute Hunzai topi logo for Sweet Tooth Attabad Lake.

And while Hussain is busy putting his ice cream parlor on the map in breathtaking, iconic destinations all over Pakistan we’re screaming here because Sweet Tooth Attabad Lake is Pakistan’s first eco-friendly restaurant (at least, that’s what we know so far).

Sweet Tooth is no stranger to unique, out there and crazy ideas. In the past, they’ve graced us with deep dish pizzas (not to be confused with deep pan), and possibly the first loaded milkshakes in Pakistan. Hussain has also employed disabled and transgender individuals at his restaurants, then gone on to make an outlet surrounded by beautiful mountains in Mushkpuri and one funky, desi fusion theme outlet in Lahore’s infamous Heera Mandi.

So, it makes sense for someone like Hussain who has been doing his part to work with marginalized communities to now also try and do his part to challenge climate change by building an eco-friendly restaurant.

To be eco-friendly is to simply mean that you don’t want to harm the environment. With the global climate crisis we’re all facing, it is necessary for even people in the food industry to realize the harm that waste and fuel can cause to the Earth. This approach, to be eco-friendly, may lead businesses to reassess, reconsider some decisions and feel like they have a social, environmental responsibility to the world and to human beings.

Which is why the parlor is a 100% solar powered

Look at those lamps and bulbs; they’ll be completely dependant on the sun for energy. While this is an area that may not have access to regular electricity supply, using the sun as a renewable energy source also cuts down costs by a mile. It also eliminates the need for generators, which normally use fuel and pollute the air. Take notes, other restauranteurs!

By doing this, The Sweet Tooth Attabad Lake is setting a good example for others to follow

A majority of the restaurants around Pakistan have to make use of generators given the shortfall of electricity, which are unfortunately powered by petrol, diesel or gas. These in turn further pollute the air we breathe, which then results in things like the horrible smog that you see in Lahore during the winters.

Hussain also plans to boycott plastics and opt for oxy-biodegradable plastics

He said in a post on Facebook,

“We’ll be boycotting use of plastics as much as we can, till we completely get rid of it. Oxy-biodegradable plastics would be used in packaging. We are initiating organic waste management, manure making using our own waste, furthermore planting trees, for every tree that suffered, fertilizing using our own manure.”

I’d have dessert here three times a day. Would you?
