Best Pan in Karachi

Before I start let me announce a disclaimer, I am a dentist and would not recommend Pan as a 24 hr habit, Simply – Don’t eat pan !!! How can I say that with a straight face since I myself enjoy the scrumptuous taste of Pan. I ain’t a 24 hrs black mouth saliva dripping pan eater, but more of a social pan-eater. Would love to enjoy some good pans like the Raja Sahib @ Motta’s or Shamama @ pan shop next to Liberty Tariq Road.

Any other recommendations ?

    best paan? it’s gotta be PIDC wali paan shop…the one behind it actually.

    Yeah, PIDC’s pretty sweet (not the sugar wala sweet but quality wala..) There used to be one near Hassan Square which I used to go to in my younger days. And theres one behind Moti Mehal and you cant, just simply cant, open your mouth wide enough for that.

    faras, i agree. i once tried that moti mehel wala paan and it was as big as a samosa! :/

    Try the shamama – it is also a very huge samosa pan. Let me be a little discriptive on the sensation.

    The first gulp is a mouthful, you literally have to shove that sucker in with still a few remaining crumbs, you try to bite down but its tough as the force required with a wide open mouth is significantly higher. A few minutes later you droll and being a decent pan eater, one swallows otherwise it could be a massive nuclear-spit to the side. Then a huge menthol taste creeps through your nose, thats the high you get with a Shamama. Case closed in 15 mintues @ Rs.10 only

    Dont stop us from having this “Ayashhhi” once in a while. I love it at times.

    There were days when paan was considered a delicacy with only the ‘expert’ – many a family members considering themselves one – knew as to how to ‘create’ the perfect paan. Nowadays the thing called ‘paan’ is just a combination of God-knows what chemicals and sugery coated stuff.

    Please if someone does have to satisfy a sweeth tooth, I would say go have a teaspoon of sugar. Or as they say in urdu ‘shaakar phankh lo’.
