When it comes to the world of cuisines, Pan-Asian food probably appeals most to the Pakistani palette. Pan-Asian cuisine engulfs a variety of flavors and, amongst those options, Chinese and Thai cuisines top the list. So, if you are a fan of all things Pan Asian, here’s a place that we highly recommend.
X2 is an offbeat Pan-Asian restaurant offering the best of Oriental flavors. A new branch of celebrated restaurant located in Valencia Town, X2 is massively growing in popularity because of its quality food.
The décor is stunning. You enter the space and cannot un-see the effort that is put into planning the design, aesthetics, furniture, color combinations, influence of Asian culture and the perfect lighting for those insta-worthy selfies and food photography.
Their menu is designed with an appealing mix of colors and design combinations, just like the decor. There are ample options in all the categories to choose from. For appetizers, you can choose among the sesame fried fish, chicken drumsticks, and sweet and sour prawns, besides other things.
For the main course, you can feel quite conflicted as all the options on the menu are supremely inviting.
We decided to skip on soup and save our appetite for the real deal. As Pan Asian food lovers, we went for Chicken Chili Dry which was served with egg fried rice. The rice was perfectly cooked with soft chicken pieces and a generous topping of fried egg, all seasoned to perfection. The curry was customized according to our taste buds and made for a perfect complement to the fried rice. The seasoning was on point and there was a subtle flavor of all the ingredients in every bite of the crispy yet tender chicken pieces.
Not to forget, the serving proportion was ample for two people. We also got laid our hands on Xeto Samakara Fish served with chopped vegies and that too with the right amount of classic zing we were craving for.
Also, X2 is offering exquisite iftar platter in affordable rates for car dining, home delivery and takeaway.
X2 definitely makes it to the top of our list when it comes to Pan Asian meals in Lahore which are easy on pocket and offer a holistic experience of great food, a cozy ambience and quick service. What’s not to like? Head over the X2 Valencia Town branch next time you crave for Pan-Asian and we know it will become a regular.
