We had been reading so many great reviews about Pomelo Avenue on MM Alam in Lahore, that we decided to give it a try. A group of us friends landed there for dinner and were promptly seated. All of us had different food preferences so we all ordered various dishes like Chicken Cashewnut, beef steak (cooked medium well), Jalapeño Chicken etc.
First of all, you better be very hungry when you go to Pomelo, because their servings are big.
Secondly we all just loved the food. In fact we all tried each other’s dishes to get a flavor of the food and each dish was distinct in taste and beautifully presented.
Personally I ordered the beef steak and to me, how well a restaurant makes beef steaks in Pakistan, is a good indicator of how good the restaurant is, and the steak at Pomelo was just wonderful.
Please ensure you don’t ask for a well done steak as the high temperature is really not good for Pakistani beef. I ordered mine medium well and it was just perfect.
Our food was accompanied by some signature drinks like Blue Lagoon, Red Blood Margarita and Mint Margarita and we finished off the food by sharing a plate of Creme Bruelle.
Overall a wonderful experience and I have to admit Pomelo has come a long way in the taste and presentation of their dishes.
Thank you team Pomelo for making our evening simply delicious.
