Taxila, Pakistan - Chapli Kabab & Freshwater "Rohu" Carp from Shahzada Khan

klyeoh | Aug 29, 201410:26 AM     5

Lunch today was at Shahzada Khan, a "dhaba" (roadside eatery) along the main street of Taxila, a 1,200-year-old city in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwala region on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Shahzada Khan offers to types of entrees: "Chapli Kabab", a burger-like slightly-spiced beef patty; and their house specialty: crisp-fried freshwater "rohu" (carp). Both items are served with local "naan" bread, and a local lemon-yoghurt dip.

Consumed hot off the large "tawa" frying pans, these were absolutely scrumptious! The "Chapli Kabab" is a popular snack among the local Pashtun populace of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa region. Definitely a good spot to taste local Pashtun snacks when visiting the Taxila World Heritage Site ruins dating back to the 5th & 6th century AD.
