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 HotelsAustralian 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!
