When Starbucks met his Pakistani counterpart Sattarbuksh

When 'Starbucks 'met his Paki counterpart 'Sattar Buksh'

Starbucks is not only a coffee shop it is a coffee revolution which started many years back in Seattle . It has taken America by storm . It has completely changed the global art of coffee drinking ; their cappuccinos and frapachinos are part of American lives now when students , business executives , tourists and also busy moms do satisfy their coffee thirst by getting a cup of coffee from Starbucks . The Starbucks phenomenon has reached many countries but it reached Karachi Pakistan in a somewhat disguised form . A new restaurant opened in the Clifton area of Karachi named " Sattarbuksh " it had a similar green and white logo like Starbucks but more so with a man with a moustache ; I guess he is Mr Sattarbuksh . I don't know who came up with this idea but to name a new restaurant inspired by a popular global coffee chain is very smart : answer free publicity for Mr Sattarbuksh.
The food is not spectacular but the decor is quite retro / chic . Name of dishes are quite captivating : 'Besharam Burgers ', 'Jehnga o lala' .
It definietly caters to Karachi"s food loving and restaurant hoping population .
Menu is a combination of eastern and western cuisine . If you are in Karachi are looking for a cool lunch stop or missing your favorite Starbucks Coffee stop by Sattarbuksh .......
