Best of the best

Ok, guys. Here’s the real deal. The first survey/poll at metroblogging karachi.

I am compiling a list of things to devour and where to go to get the very best of it. At present, the list is incomplete. But not for long. With your help we will complete it, and add more items to it. Soon it will become a source of reference for those who believe in getting the ultimate quality when it comes to eating out.

So here’s what you have to do. Go through the list below. If you think you can contribute to any of the items, leave a comment. For example, if you think best pizza can be found at not pizza hut but some other place, tell us more about it. If you think there needs to be an item that is missing, let us know about it. I shall update the list every month based on your feedback.

This experiment depends totally on your participation. So help us to make it a success.

So without further adieu.
