Alsaba, the Pakistani word, which means “morning sunlight” is owned by Mr. Rana, who is Pakistani as well as the other three chefs. The restaurant’s interior design and tableware are simple yet luxurious, making it the perfect spot for gatherings and dates.
The restaurant specializes in lamb dishes, curry, and chicken dishes. The best lamb dishes are billed as Mutton Champ, a lamb steak seasoned with spices and grilled, and Mutton Kahari, which is lamb sautéed with tomatoes, peppers, onions and ginger on it. If you are not used to hot, spicy foods or if you are vegetarian, try the Aloo Palik, a curry dish with spinach and potatoes. The bread that is commonly served is nan, but you can also try the roti, which is thinner than nan, or paratha, which is flakier than the roti because of the layers of butter.
A 10% VAT will be added. Menus are available in both Korean and English.
Chef Rasheed’s Recommendation!
“Do you want to try the cuisine of ancient Pakistani kings? Then try the Ran – lamb marinated in yogurt and other ingredients and then steamed. The texture of the meat is so tender it melts in your mouth. Served with bread, rice, soup, salad, coffee, and dessert, your appetite will definitely be satisfied. If you want to enjoy a good meal at an affordable price, try the lunch special from 11:30 to 15:00, Monday-Friday. Prices range from 13,000 to 15,000 won. The lunch special comes with salad, nan, and tea.”
