Pakistani cuisine is best described as a mixture and fusion of influences from three regions: the Middle East, South Asia, and Central Asia. Many traditional foods are very spicy and rich, and are often served with rice or the local bread, naan.

Like neighboring Persian cuisine, Pakistani foods are varied in form and texture. They often include curries, kebabs, lentils, barbecue/tandoori, rices, breads, and an array of desserts. However, Pakistani cuisine is generally considered to be much more spicy in flavor. In addition, due to historic circumstances, Pakistani cuisine is similar to that of Northern India, but contains much more meat than many Indian dishes. The most popular meats are beef, goat, lamb, and chicken, while seafood is generally not consumed on a large scale.

I have had Pakistani food only a handful of times, but I can safely say its good but extremely spicy. So much so, in fact, that you'll need to order tons of their specialty breads, naan, to cool off your tongue (nope, water is futile at Pakistani restaurants).     Despite all that, I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered. However, it's just not one of my favorites because a lot of their food is really spicy and rich, and makes me feel really heavy after eating. …
