If there’s one thing you must try during your trip to Faisalabad, it’s the samosas, reputedly the best in Pakistan. Faisalabad’s samosas are spicy, delicious and sold as street food on nearly every corner. Gourmet versions are available in the more upmarket restaurants. Also try dahi bhalla (fried lentil balls served with yoghurt and chutneys) and gol gappe, which are flour balls filled with black grams, onions and potatoes, and then fried.
International cuisine is also available, and Chinese food is a particular favourite in the city, with plenty of restaurants serving sumptuous dishes. There are also plenty of fast-food outlets for snacks on the go.
Rabri is the favoured drink in Faisalabad – a mixture of peanuts, almonds and a selection of dried fruits in milk.
