Kabab Karachi is a small, one table affair in Sharjah with something of a cult following. Since dining there last week, I am still trying to figure out why – probably affordability. Our mixed grill was like the Top of the Pops of their menu and included Malai, Bihari and Reshmi – mainly chicken with some meat (I’m assuming lamb). I found everything too salty and over-spiced. Did I like anything? Sure, the Chicken Seekh was seriously good but it’s not something I can’t get at any decent Pakistani restaurant in Dubai, leave alone at favourites such as Nayaab Haandi or even Ravi. My food guru, @pallavisangtani later told me that we should have tried their bun kababs which are supposedly the best. As it’s unlikely I will go back to Kabab Karachi, I will just have to take her word for it.
