My husband has never been a big fan of curries. So, it came as a surprise when last week he asked me to accompany him for dinner to Avari for having curry for dinner. Yes, that’s all he told me. Like all men, he’s always tight lipped about where we are going, whats the occasion and who’s going to be there. Men never understand that all of these questions help me decide what to wear so that one is neither under dressed nor overdressed.
Khair, upon arriving at Avari Towers, it became clear that “having curry for dinner” was an understatement. Avari Tower celebrated “Curries of the World” for three consecutive days. To say that there were curries from all over the world won’t be right coz I do not think that they have curries in the European or North and South American countries; however. The selection was huge.
Most curries were from Asian region and I loved tasting all of them. Specially coz I had been trying to control my diet by eating a lot of salads which left me in a sour mood most of the time. And I indulged myself fully at the Curries of the World. I tried and ate almost all of the dishes except for the Pakistani ones.
The food was amazing. Curries tasted really good. There were normal, garlic and butter naans to eat with curries as well as rice. There were curries from different countries, including Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India.
Butter Chicken was the star of day. The buttery smooth taste was so good. I also loved the Sri Lankan chicken with vegetables. From Pakistani curries, there was beef nihari, beef koftay, mutton karahi, kunna, paye and some daal.
Salads at Avari are my fav part. Some salty, some tangy but all perfect. I am in love with the salads served at Avari buffet. I can eat them as the main course. Yes, they are that good.
Desserts are always good too. This time, there were traditional Pakistani dessert as well as cheesecake kinda ones too. But I stayed away from desserts this time as I have been working hard to lose weight.
It was a good experience. Loved eating such varied tasting food. I am so glad my husband insisted that we go there for the Curries of the World fest.
