Never have I ever met a person who does not like pasta. Even if it does not prove whether Pakistanis have a taste of authentic Italian cuisine or not, pasta is something you just cannot deny. Can you?
No. You can’t.
However, not all pastas are the same. Some are justified according to the taste and some are not made rightly. And here comes the most difficult situation for every true pasta lover; where to get the best pasta from?
It depends what the best pasta for you is. Some people like it chewy, some like t soft. But in the end, all that matters is the taste, consistency and overall texture. Honestly, I am yet to find the best pasta that has the capability of taking me to Italy, but undoubtedly, we are doing really well with Alfredo pasta and its derivatives.
Here are some of my personal favorites in Karachi, and you might benefit from them in times of need.
Sizzlerz Cafe & Grill
My top favorites from Sizzlers are their fettuccine Alfredo pasta and Parmesan chicken pasta. I would say that the taste their Alfredo pasta has is nothing new or unique, but definitely is delicious. However, what I like about their Parmesan chicken pasta is that Parmesan cheese, basil leaves the rest of the herbs are mixed in the sauce that give it an extremely amazing taste. It is topped with Parmesan chicken, marinara and mozzarella cheese.
