Don’t Miss These 2 Restaurants in Faisalabad!

While in Faisalabad, the third-largest city of Pakistan, I found two gems to eat at! Both are roadside restaurants serving cheap and tasty food. The first is famous for samosa, the other for lassi and warm milk.

Take a visit to Samosa Square

Watch my trip to Samosa Square!
Al Madina Ice Bar, Faisalabad

On this junction near the clock tower, you’ll find 3 samosa stores! Al Madina, Bismillah, and Al Makka. All serve samosas covered in three chutneys: sweet, yoghurt, and chickpeas.

Samosas and chutney at Al Madina Ice Bar in Faisalabad
Samosa plate Rs. 80 at Al Madina Ice Bar. Some people like to mash it up, as you can see on the other plate.

Al Madina is my choice. For Rs. 80 you’ll get two samosas. The meal is very filling and enough for lunch.

If you want to try something unique, cross the road to Al Makka and order their Faisalabad Naan. It’s bread covered in vegetables and batter, then fried. It was too oily for me though.

Then stop at a traditional milk shop

Right in front of the clock tower is the Bangali Milk Shop. They primarily serve two things: a large mug of lassi (yoghurt drink) or a massive bowl of warm milk. Both are lightly sweetened with sugar and cost Rs. 90.

Sorry, I drank half the bowl before taking the photo. This is a huge bowl of warm milk with a tiny bit of sugar added. It’ll take you a while to finish!

Beware! I drank both and fell into a deep sleep back in my hotel. It’s very filling. Maybe just stick to one or the other.
