So much action going on here, and we've heard there's a delicious brain takatak just right up here, and it's gonna be full of tomatoes and masala and spice. And we're on the hunt for it now. Let's go see if we can find it. Peace be upon you. – And unto you peace.

the massive mutton leg piece grilled right over the fire, we're meeting up with our good buddy Ali who's taking us to the sea side for a huge Karachi style seafood
feast on the Arabian Sea. – Awesome guys, next up, we're
driving with Ali and Ting, we're going for a big
seafood feast on the seaside, and it's gonna be a lot of fun.

– Yeah, we're going to
Oxbie and as you see, coming to Karachi not
having seafood is a sin. And we're not going to commit that sin. – Let's go check it out. – Yeah (mumbles), I would
like to introduce you to my friends, we have Sheru
Zeer, Alleze, and Allam. – And we're gonna have a big seafood meal right on the beach. – [Ali] Yes, so Trevor, right

steam with the masala. So putting in the masala.

Pakistani seafood feast. With the Pakistani
fisherman styled lobster, just being one of the many
sea foods we were offered. – This is amazing. Just cooking up the crab stomach. – Yeah.
– Your good name? – Harune.
– Harune? – Yes.

– Both fantastic? – Hard to decide.
– Hard to decide. – Let us try lobster. You can have a whole tail. – [Trevor] Oh look at that. That is amazing and
what I'm loving here is the variety of the masala. Everything is slightly different. Some is richer, some is
spicier, some has more cumin.

Right there, that is the biggest chunk of lobster flesh, right
fresh from the ocean. – [All] Cheers. (moaning) – This is unreal. Just look at this full table. – [Narrator] This is one
of the best seafood meals you'll ever eat. After eating the incredibly
delicious red snapper with the sweet, sour,
and spicy tamarind sauce, we made our way back into town. And the next day, for
a mid-afternoon snack before going for a whole mutton leg piece with the testicle still attached. We're bringing you for more seafood, right on the street, Karachi style. – And this is just amazing, guys. We're going so deep today,
exploring the back alleys and right up here, there's

– Okay. Wow, looks good, tasty. This is a sight to see
in the street food world. The whole mutton leg right on the street, cooked with all the Sajji chicken, and we are gonna devour all of that delicious flesh. – [Narrator] This whole
leg piece took 2 hours to roast over the fire,
so we went for a walk. But when we came back,
the testicle was gone. As you can just see, that the meat, the flesh on that mutton
leg is looking so tender and just juices bursting. Looks very nice. And here we go, it's memorizing.

Look at that big bone. That is one of the joys of life, meat. And in Pakistan, oh

And we're just going to go right in and have a delicious bite. (moans) – Thank you so much, that is fantastic. Wow that is so fatty. Look at that flesh, it's just
full of fat on the inside.

So much fat in there. And that lime right there

Today, I'm (The Food Ranger, Trevor James) bringing you in DEEP into Karachi, Pakistan, for a FULL ON street food tour! We're tasting INCREDIBLE Golden Chicken Biryani, different from Golden Pulao, but still an amazingly delicious Pakistani food!

►The BEST VPNs For China: https://thefoodranger.com/best-vpn-for-china/

Karachi is one of the oldest and most vibrant cities in the world and has one of the BEST street food scenes too! You need to travel to Pakistan to try the street food, especially the BIRYANI in Karachi!

Today, we're bringing you Foodrangin' for LOTS of TRADITIONAL and AUTHENTIC Pakistan Street Food - including the AMAZING GOLDEN Chicken Biryani at Al Rehman Biryani! We're also having brain takatak (katakat) and some incredible Pakistani seafood in Karachi too!

This is RARE and DELICIOUS, and worth traveling to Pakistan for! You have to taste this food at least once in your lifetime!

When you travel to Karachi, you will fall in love with the street food as soon as you arrive! Today, we're starting out with an UNSEEN Chicken biryani, where the masters prepare biryani for 100's of people every day! This is all prepared by local chefs in Karachi using PURE karachi style masalas!

It was found in downtown Karachi in an old area where there is street food everywhere! The basmati rice was the FLUFFIEST I've ever tasted and the potatoes were MASSIVE and soft!

After this, we're going DEEPER into Karachi to Burns road, where there are 1000's of street foods and stalls to visit! This is before we bring you to a MASSIVE Pakistani SEAFOOD feast on the beachside in Karachi, right on the Arabian sea!

Next up, we're going to a local Pakistan street food served right on the street side, the KARACHI HALEEM, found right on burns road! We got invited into the kitchen to see how the chefs prepare the haleem using their Pakistani recipes, it was absolutely amazing to watch it being prepared! There was so much chicken, masala, and pulses all being ground up to make the haleem! But this was just the beginning, after this we found the most INSANE Street Food in Pakistan!

After tasting the haleem at Karachi Haleem, it was evening time and needed some street food to try before going to our Pakistani seafood feast. We found ourselves in a local alley in Karachi and found the CRAZIEST BRAIN FRY (bheja fry) with tomato! It was full of masala, brain, and also tons of oil! To be honest, it was quite heavy for me, but maybe once in a whilie it's OK to eat!

After this, we're meeting with our buddy Ali and he is taking us to his friends Shehroze and Alizeh's seaside home for a HUGE Pakistani SEAFOOD feast right on the ARABIAN SEA! To me, this was some of the most unique food in Pakistan, especially being able to watch the cooking process of all the different seafoods! We had red snapper with a tamarind sauce, HUGE lobsters cooked in masala and ghee, crab claw LOLLIPOPS, calamari, shrimp curry, and more! It was SO TASTY!

After this, the next day, we made our way back into Karachi to visit the super famous Fish TAKATAK (katakat) at Mashalla Takatak! It uses sole fish and tons of masala, onions (piyaz), and coriander! It was amazing to watch the chopping and grilling of the fish in oil! Another famous seafood dish to try in Karachi! It was so UNIQUE!

And for our final meal, we went to taste a WHOLE LAMB leg roast over the fire!!! It was amazing to taste, and the cooking process took over 2 hours! As it was being prepared, we watched the master chefs sprinkle local masala over it and also sprinkle it with lime after it was done!

I hope you're enjoying this big Pakistani street food video series! Thanks so much for watching, I would love to hear from you down below!
