des pardes

des pardes
saidpur village, islamabad, pakistan
tel: 051) 2320008

what was consumed: naan, lamb chops, chicken curry, biryani, helwa ... 

des pardes! one of the restaurants in saidpur village ("we" regularly go to andaaz), one that i've been meaning to go to. luckily, a work-related opportunity took me here (we also produced a short video about it. hilarious, right?). yes! work! YUM.

des pardes features desi/pakistani food. the naans, the rices, the curries, the works! the naan came out first, and its delicious. we thought we could eat it all day long. and then the rice (chicken biryani in our case) along with a delicious chicken curry (i wish i could remember which of the curries we ordered. all i remember is that it was delicious).

that said, people have told me that when at des pardes, you really want to enjoy their meat dishes, to include lamb chops (so we did). the lamb chops come grilled, having been seasoned with pakistani spices. each chop has the bone end wrapped in foil, making it easy (and inviting) to grab one with your hands to enjoy. 

we ended our meal with a few bites of pakistani sweets - carrot halwa and gulab jamun. turns out, i really enjoy carrot halwa.

i hear that, on the weekends, there's a guy who plays traditional pakistani tunes for your enjoyment while you dine. i'll have to come back to check it out and eat more delish food!
