Burger King finally comes to Lahore

The famous King comes town. It could be a little heart breaking for the Lahoris that the King visited them last although they take pride in being the food Capital of Pakistan and most of the food chains when they come to Pakistan, start off with lahore. Nonetheless, I guess it was a good wait and Mcdonalds has its rival here in Lahore as well.

With the burger trend in Lahore on its rise with amazing local chains keeping up a good fight, its going to be a some adventure for Burger King to sustain once the welcome fireworks go silent.

But at the same time, we must not forget Burger King is one of the biggest Burger chains in the world and Lahore seems to be complete with its share of the Kings Meal.

Halal Restaurants in Mississauga Ontario

tossdown.com was founded in one of south asia’s most food loving cities – Lahore in 2008 and since then it does its best to cover any food item it can across the globe mostly non-officially. But this is not the case when it comes to listing Restaurants in Mississauga, Ontario, one of the most pronounced cities of Canada known for its dense muslim population always looking for the best Halal Restaurants to dine at.

Hence, this is the primary reasons that the country’s top Halal Brands are born here. Weather these are Halal Italian Restaurants like Karamia, Hakka Chinese places like the Eddies Wok n Roll or the notorious Burger Factory famous for its juicy burgers its all here and so tossdown stepped into North America by starting with none other than Mississauga.

It aims to start listing the best Halal Restaurants in the city and build a community around it with foodies sharing their thoughts on these places by either reviewing, sharing a photo or just adding a tip to it. We hope this brings the Halal Foodies out and give them one voice – tossdown.

300 Best Dishes Featured from Top Restaurants in Lahore

While we at tossdown want to get closer to the heart and soul of a foodie, we are working hard to go deeper in the local dining scene. One of such new offering is featured dishes from top restaurants in Lahore.

We believe every restaurant has something great to offer, often we seem to ignore it and so often the restaurant itself doesnt really emphasize on it and goes for variety. But what would you rather have at a chocolateria – steak or churros?

We couldnt have launched this feature without the help of your foodies that take their time to share the goodness of food using the tossdown app (for android & iOS)

With the featured dishes launched for restaurants in lahore we hope to extend to other cities of Pakistan, we wish to give our foodies the best of insights of what to eat where.

The page offers a great searching tool – you can search by food type, area and also the price range so for instance a if you are looking for a burger in gulberg lahore you can get your results here.

Superstar gets beaten by buddies

Ok I had to do this. I had to find out what the fuss was about once I ate the superstar. There I said to myself this cant be the best that Hardees has to offer ‘cuz it aint that good’. So I decided on trying the others. It took me a couple of trips till I could come up with the conclusion hence the time that this researched consumed was the most time consuming I have done in my life. I hope I could’ve worked this hard for my college.
Anyways, this time around we decided on getting different burgers each and so we sat down with the superstar, Jalapeno Burger, Mushroom and Swiss Thick burger and a Big Burger with Cheese.  I started off with the jalapeno burger, not that great honestly so lets move on. See my problem with Hardees till that moment was its very flat taste, my taste buds hardly wake up during the course of eating 200 pounds of beef. We Pakistanis need a little salt in our stuff and we pass out everything else as tasteless.  However, when I bit on the swiss burger, thankfully it got the taste buds running. It was a pleaser of a mouthful especially for someone who likes mushrooms. The different tastes, yes I repeat tastes this time around, combined with the meat was all that you would like your food to be. Moving on to the Big burger. It was again something that was really flavorsome. It tastes like the royal burger from another fast food joint bit a little better because of Hardees superior bun quality. So heres our top chart for Hardees.
Hardees TOP 4
1. Mushroom Swiss Burger
2. Big Cheese Burger
3. Superstar
4. Jalapeno Burger

Superstar sitting proud

Please see that there is still more of Hardees to be explored, like their chicken burgers. For now this is what we got.

Hardees Hits Hard

Lahore is all about eating out; that is why tossdown.com was born here and now the Hardees Boys are in town. Somehow they have had a good research done, so it seems, chose the best place to launch their brand and they weren’t disappointed at all. I am sure every management will feel fluffy to see people killing to get inside to have a ‘piece of their meat’ as they call it at hardees. We were lucky to squeeze in at the mark and when we saw a long line we were a bit perplexed, couldn’t decide to stay or leave but we had to do it, it was our ‘job’. Imagine that’s what we do for a living, eat.


It took us a good hour to reach the counter but it wasn’t all that bad in the line as well. Sometimes you just need that sort of an entertainment as well. Inching every 5 minutes towards the counter looking around fishing for stuff that might amuse us and if it was good enough we would share it with you. So yeah besides the loads we dissolved, the interior needs a praise with a lot of sun pouring in. Its November and things looked pleasant we are not sure how they would take June. The seating was a bit unusual as well; besides the usual benches they had those high chairs that you may find in a giants dining room and some real contemporary seats and chair setups, pretty funky I would say.
Ok ok I can hear your stomachs growl but hey you have to wait till we did in the line. Just kidding! Lets get to the point, we reach the counter and order their main stuff i.e. Super Star and Hardees Original Thick Burger. They handed us our order tent and our glasses so we could fill in the drinks as much as we could. I repeat its drink as much as you can but don’t you guys go crazy on the soda. Too much can make you hyper! Atleast that’s what the moms say. The orders were delivered in about 5 minutes and that food was the prettiest of sights I have seen. Nicely half wrapped HUGE burgers. Mind you the biggest we have seen, exactly what our lahori tummys were yerning for. Besides them were laying those graceful crisp fries. As soon as the burgers hits the deck we took the chips and landed straight on our taste buds and they dived straight down our throats as if they were more desperate and waiting than us. Beautiful exotic taste. They actually felt like real fries unlike the plastic ones we get at other fast food joints. Now to the burgers. We had to pick these beefed babys carefully and put them in our mouth and taste every cubic mm of what they had to offer. Nice juicy burger, tossed with fresh veggies and soft buns. Trust me we know burgers like no other and these were amazing burgers. I would rate the super star better than the original one. Great food nice ambience great service. We loved it and the taste still lingers onto me like the good old first love. You must try it.
