Lahore, Pakistan - Best Beef Nihari Ever at Muhammadi Nehari, Mozang Chungi

No visit to Lahore's culinary scene would be complete without a meal at Muhammadi Nehari, the one must-eat-at spot in the city for any gourmand, IMO.

Nihari is essentially a thick, spicy beef stew cooked gently overnight, resulting in melt-in-your-mouth beef in an intensely-flavoured, oily gravy. There are several nihari options on the menu at Muhammadi Nehari - we chose the "house special" nihari with "nali" (marrow) and brain. Accompanying the nihari are roughly julienned ginger, chopped fresh coriander leaves and slivers of small local lemon, to be squeezed over the stew. It was the best-tasting dish I'd had all year, anywhere.

We ordered two types of local breads: a slightly sweetish, milk-rich Taftan, and a spongey Sheermal Naan. The Taftan was extremely addictive. Muhammadi Nehari also served very good, frothy Lassi - don't miss this.
