Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year 2017 – The year of the Rooster. The most celebrated Chinese festival is on Saturday 28th January but at Dynasty, Avari Lahore the celebrations have started already wishing everyone good fortune and prosperity for the New Year.

Dynasty Restaurant at Avari Lahore is one of the best Chinese restaurants in the city that offers authentic Szechuan dishes. On this Chinese New Year the restaurant is celebrating in true spirit with it’s Seafood Bonanza featuring a delicious selection of seafood by it’s talented Chef Erbin Yang.

The setup at the restaurant was very warm and welcoming. The display of Roosters and Chinese Lanterns symbolizing luck, longevity and good fortune were accustomed to the fiery year of the Rooster and Chinese Celebrations.

 The celebrations kicked off with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony by the honorable guests Mr. Atif Nadeer (COO Fauji Foods) along with Mr. Grant Raubenheimer (GM Avari), Chef Erbin Yang, Chef Zaheer, Mr. Arif Chaudhry (Director Food & Beverages Avari) and the restaurant staff.
The spectacular seafood on ice display was one of the highlights of the celebrations at the restaurant. Chinese New Year is not complete without a Fish prosperity toss, which was not only the part of display table but also had a prominent place on the special menu.

The menu by Chef Erbin Yang featured some of the most revered seafood specialties such as Whole Red Snapper in Chili Sauce, Braised Trout Fish, Lobster in Butter Cheese Sauce and Prawns with Lychee to name a few.

There was a Chef’s Special Menu for Soup and Appetizers and from the menu we ordered Seafood Hot & Sour Soup that had a lot of different flavors of diced prawns, fish, calamari, crab and vegetables and had a very appetizing spicy and sour taste. For appetizers we were served crispy, golden Jumbo Prawns which were amazingly delicious (for a prawns lover it were perfect!)
There were a lot of dishes to choose from for the main course, from specially designed Chef’s recommended menu, I had already had prawns so ordered a fish dish Fried Fish in Sweet and Sour Sauce, it was a lightly battered fish deep fried and tossed in sweet and sour sauce served with rice. It was one of the best Chinese dishes I’ve ever had!

 So if you’re looking for a place to host a family dinner or a reunion lunch or simply want to treat yourself, a seafood feast awaits you with succulent seafood dishes by Chef Erbin Yang.

The Chinese New Year Seafood Bonanza is available at Dynasty, Avari Lahore from 25th to 29th January. Reserve your tables today to enjoy this lip-smacking seafood feast – because you just can’t miss it!

Review: Australian Food Festival at Avari Lahore

There’s nothing like crisp and clear November nights in Lahore. Being accustomed to the chill the season brings, it gives more reason to enjoy outdoor evening weather. To get the most out of the evenings what better than warm outdoor lighting and live Barbecue – a perfect evening! That’s what Avari Hotels Australian Food Festival has brought together – Australia’s favorite pastimes; barbecuing and Lahore’s passion and love for Food!

The Australian Food Festival at Avari Lahore was arranged at The Tollington – hotel’s very popular Pakistani BBQ area. We were welcomed with an amazing Australian set-up. Walking through the famous Sydney Opera House, the kangaroos display and the Sydney Harbour Bridge backdrop all gave that Australian feels to the entire place.

Perth based Chef Jesse Hands had flown to Lahore to serve quintessential Aussie BBQ with authentic Australian spices, beef, lamb and seafood all imported from Australia. We were able to get our hands on some of Australia’s best meaty treats offering a fresh Aussie twist to our traditional Lahori BBQ experience.
Australian’s love barbecue or barbie ( as they call it) possibly more than we do. The myriad  of mouth-watering meaty cuts and indigenous flavors highlight the influence of all the ethnicities and the centuries old aboriginals techniques, making modern Australian Food uniquely Australian. It is very different from the spicy Lahori BBQ, the taste and flavors were subtle yet very well balanced. The meat was cooked to perfection. 
It was not an all-meat kind of an event it also included some authentic Aussie desserts which were delicious! 
I’m a true carnivore and a foodie at heart so my plate was full of all things meat (not guilty!). For me it was an amazing experience to taste authentic Australian Barbecue – sausages, steaks, seafood, lamb and of course the sides to go with it.
If you’re a carnivore at heart too, then this Aussie BBQ and Australian Food Festival at Avari Lahore is a perfect treat for you. You get a full all-you-can-eat spread for Rs. 2499 + tax that includes live Aussie barbecue, salad bar, side dishes and desserts.
Australian Food Festival has definitely brought food lovers in Lahore a taste of the best Australian BBQ!
