International Food Bloggers In Lahore Hitting The Pakistani Scene

The message is all too loud and clear: Food vlogging is the way to go and grow. In our local arena, this has been the newest trend that is gradually building up in momentum.

They are the most happening characters in modern day food marketing.

As for the Pakistani food, it is rich in nutritional value, packed full of spice, generous with ghee or cooking oil, and incredibly delicious.  The Pakistani cuisine is a blend of the various regional cooking of the Indian subcontinent; after partition, the Pakistani cuisine turned into an extension of Indian cuisine. It has been a recent trend that foreign food bloggers in Lahore are venturing into the country for the purpose of exploring Pakistani local cuisine.

From food bloggers in Lahore stretched out to Karachi, one would expect the food to be similar all over Pakistan. But, an interesting fact is that food and the way it is cooked varies considerably from region to region. The taste variation reflects Pakistan’s ethnic and cultural diversity that impart specialty to a given food menu. What is generally found by the food blogging community is that Punjabi food is very rich in flavor and texture. People from the Punjab region tend to place a lot of emphasis on full meals. They eat up to the point till they can’t gulp down anymore.

It is also noteworthy that international cuisine and fast foods are popular in urban centers of Pakistan, such as Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi. Also can be found is a blend of local and international cuisines, such as the coined term “Pakistani Chinese”. It is a spicy desi version of Chinese food, which blogging tourists prefer more than authentic Chinese food.
