As we end this terrible year, I had nothing positive to contribute so stayed silent for last two weeks.
Then, in this last week, a family medical condition made us visit the Aga Khan Hospital
and … hello … BRAINWAVE!
We all hear of various rankings- The top five sports cars in the world
The top Brunches in the city
The top Beauty Salons for dogs & cats … (😊)
Well, I would easily place Aga Khan’s food as the TOP HOSPITAL (I repeat- HOSPITAL) FOOD TO EAT 😊😊😊 in Karachi.
While my cousin took the red-eye shift to be with our aunt, my wife took the afternoon shift … I took the am shift, selfishly motivated with the opportunity for their breakfast! Incidentally, I only took the breakfast on the first day.
On day two, I went to the cafeteria for a mixed tea and their walnut cake, both items are “to die for”! (Talk about ‘hospital’ irony 😊).
On day 3, I had their mixed tea and their croissant – so, okay, I’ve had better Croissants but this one wasn’t bad.
Mind you, go to the cafeteria for the mixed tea- it’s much better than the room service one.
Day 4 saw me pick up their mixed tea and Muffin- not too bad.
So, friends, whenever you have a get-together, afternoon tea, maybe even an anniversary, consider the Aga Khan cafeteria – I certainly have on multiple occasions (even one on our 10th anniversary) but my entire family turned against me … WHAT NERVE!!! (So much for surprising my wife 😊)
I joked with my nieces that on anyone’s next birthday, pick up the walnut cake from Aga Khan 😊, which didn’t get me the funny reaction I expected!
I wonder, does this critique make me a “food connoisseur”? 😊😊😊😊😊
With this most frivolous of blogs 😊, wishing you all a very happy & healthy 2021 – may the coming year be much much kinder with humankind (in spite of mankind being very cruel with nature).
