mutton ribs copy

I love Pakistani food, but it is not often that I can have it well prepared. The Lahore Kebab House in London has expanded and is no longer as good as it used to be and Salloo’s is too expensive and too far from where I live. And I can’t go to Karachi (where I had fabulous food last year) every day, or even every year.

Luckily, I happen to be in Dubai where my brother, a fine gourmet, lives and he seems to have the best addresses. Today, he took me for lunch to Barbecue Delights, a rather charmless restaurant in an equally charmless part of town but where the cooking is just perfect. As usual, we ordered far too much: raita and salad before anything, then chicken tikka, mutton ribs, lamb chops to start, followed by lamb biryani, potatoes, spinach, daal, and kulfi to finish.

Every dish apart from the lamb chops (tough and not so tasty)  was scrumptious but my favourite was the mutton ribs. They reminded me of my mother’s dale’ mehshi (ribs stuffed with rice and minced meat). After lunch my brother showed me where he lived, on the 41st floor of a tower opposite the DIFC overlooking a good chunk of Dubai and the sea. Sadly, the light was not so good but the photograph below gives you an idea of how amazing the place is. I guess there are some consolations to being here.

    oh lovely. i love mutton chops as well. my mum makes them (my husband fell in love with my mother after she prepared them for him, especially). i shall post the recipe sometime soon. you are lucky to have gone to this place in dubai. regarding lahore kebab house, i fully, fully agree with you, but in my humble opinion, ’tis still better than tayyab’s. wonder if you agree.
    ps not only karachi, but lahore too, and some day, you will visit us there 🙂

    can’t wait. you know, i’ve never been to tayyab’s because i know it’s not as good as lahore kebab house and my last meal there was just too disappointing. shame as i don’t know where to get a good biryani in london. i guess i’ll just have to learn how to make it. can make a good kabseh which is not too different. xx

    We have a fantastic Pakistani restaurant in Vancouver.
    We have been going there for so long that we are referred to as family.
    In fact, when my mother-in-law comes for a visit the owner/cook Khalid will make a chapati especially for her as he only serves naan with the meals.
    And it does have a family feel to it.
    When I am shopping in the area I will stop in and request a chai & I am never charged as I am “family” and this is my restaurant. A very sweet gesture.
    The closest thing to eating in Pakistan which I did many years ago on my last visit.

    Anissa, it is called Al Watan, @ 45th Ave & Fraser St.
    I don’t know when you plan to visit Vancouver but I would love to meet you if that is possible.
    We could go together. Khalid would be thrilled to have a chef try his recipes.
    I was just there yesterday to have my chai.

    Anissa, if you ever make it to Vancouver, I will gladly take you for some Pakistani food.
    Until then, I will enjoy your writing.
