Corruption Free Menu in a London Restaurant

A restaurant in London named ‘Khyber Pass’ is making waves across the UK due to its ‘special menu’ that is clearly inspired by Pakistani politics. The food items from the restaurant’s menu attract customers from all over London, especially from Essex, where a large number of Pakistanis reside.

Not only is the restaurant a good place to dine out, but it also serves as a good conversation starter on important political scenarios back home. This surely makes it the perfect hanging out spot for Pakistani expats.

Corruption-Free Menu

The restaurant’s menu has been dubbed as “Captain’s Corruption-free Political Menu”, created by the manager of the place himself, Mr. Azhar Hussain. He’s also known as Captain Azhar to his customers.

To give you an idea, here are some of the dishes that are served at Captain Azhar’s restaurant:

• U-Turn (BBQ Lamb Ribs)
• Jarnailly Traditional Whole Lamb
• Tweet Sweet Rice (complimentary)
• Dollar Baby (Lamb Leg Roast)
• Panama Chicken Legs
• Shaikh Talli Seekh Kebab
• Go Nawaz Go Malai Boti
• Dharna Chicken Platter Small
• Mottu Gang Chicken Platter Large


Main Idea behind the Concept

According to the owner, most of his customers are Pakistanis who want to eat Desi food that reminded them of taste back home.

Unsurprisingly, most of these customers often indulge in heated discussions on Pakistani politics. And they keep coming back for more.

The owner of the restaurant, Captain Azhar did do his homework before going with a politically-charged naming convention for his menu. He surveyed his customers to see if it would be a good idea. The feedback he received was mostly positive.

The most popular dishes, Captain Azhar mentioned are Go Nawaz Go, U-turn and Shaikh Talli.

Dishes to Come

According to the owner,
“The idea is to encourage political debate which is essential for a strong democratic system in Pakistan. We encourage political participation.

It’s also important because we live abroad but our hearts and souls beat with Pakistan. Overseas communities take keen interest in affairs of Pakistan and they discuss Pakistan at the dinner table more than at any other place and enjoy their food.”

To dedicate a dish to Pakistan’s victory over India in the Champions Trophy final, a new dish named Fakhar-e-Pakistan will be available as a tribute to Fakhar Zaman. In fact, the heroic batsman also visited the restaurant before Pakistan’s match against India.
