Tribeca Cafe & Bistro





I'm a huge fan of Tacos and would have them any where bring offered, however in Karachi, there are hardly any eateries offering Tacos as close to their original taste. Had been followimg @tribecapk for some time on Instagram and I just had to give this place a try! Ended up here with a friend who has just moved from Islamabad. We ordered nachos, soft shell grilled chicken tacos, and Vietnamese chicken wings. 
It's considered a tapas bar, located right next to Sobremesa and Amiamo Gelato. The eatery was spacious, well lit, and friendly. I had my kids along and the staff were very welcoming. No fuss. The waiters didn't hover around on our heads, giving us space and time to decide what to order! Best part? There was no music playing in the background! Its a plus point for me as I like to enjoy other people's company and talk to them rather than shouting on the top of my lungs because of the deafening music!

Starting with the nachos, they were warm and crisp and not tbe typical pack of doritoes most eateries serve in the name of nachos. Found them a little pricey, but good since every thing on this plate was super fresh!
Moving on to the wings, THESE WERE THE BEST WINGS I'VE HAD. I loved the slightly charred taste, pleasing to the eyes as well as the tastebuds. These were just so good! Loved the dip served with it. Next, the tacos! Luuuuuuuurved them as well!! All the ingredients so fresh, beautifully put together! However I wished there was more meat in the tacos. But lovely, clean flavors. We definitely need more places like these. All the ingredients were absolutely fresh, the sour cream was homemade and so were all the other dressings and sauces.
I would recommend you all to give this place a try!

# 3 Mixed Vegetable Curry





Ingredients:

Knorr chicken cubes, 2
Cauliflower florets, 1 cup
Peas, 1 cup
Carrots, cubed, 1 cup
Potatoes, cubed, 1 cup
Capsicum, cubed, 1 cup
Broad beans (sem ki phalli) / cluster beans (gawar ki phalli), 1 cup, top & tail trimmed
Salt, 1 1/2 tsp or to taste
Red chili powder, 2 tsp
Turmeric powder, 1 tsp
Ginger-garlic, crushed, 1 tbsp
Tomatoes, diced, 1 cup
Water, as required
Oil, 1/2 cup

Method:

Heat oil in a pot, add tomatoes, ginger-garlic and fry till the oil separates from tomatoes. Now add the Knorr chicken cubes, salt, red chili powder and turmeric powder. Mix well, and keep stirring for the next two minutes. Now add in all the vegetables and water, about 2 cups and mix really well. Cover and simmer till the potatoes are just done. You can add and subtract water according to your preference. I personally like my mixed vegetables on a drier side so I add enough water to just cook the vegetables. Have with steamed rice or fresh, hot, garlic naan!

Your choice of vegetables for this doesn't need to be limited to the above mentioned vegetables. You can always add in your favorite vegetables! You can even make mixed vegetables by adding aubergines, or gourds, or zucchini. The options are unlimited! Experiment as per your taste!
