      whats pakistani falooda anyway? theres indian falooda, but nobody i know ever thought it crave worthy. you can get the original version at iranian restaurants, eg mohsen.

      to ask for the 'best pakistani falooda' sounds baffling.

        there is no 'pakistani' falooda distinct from falooda served in the sub-continent. whats next, 'pakistani' biryani?

        1. re: howler

          so the iranians make it the same way? i think this thread shows there are regional variations of falooda:
          thus my request is not bizarre or ridiculous.

          thanks for your rec, though.

            iran is a whole different story.

            pakistan only came into existence in 1947. and of course there are tiny variations - as with anything - but for your edification there is no such thing a pakistani falooda as opposed to falooda.

              thank you for enlightening me. i think you were just itching for a fight. too bad.

                i was just wondering, if i had asked for "pakistani-STYLE falooda" whether i would have avoided this.......

                  Maybe you should have asked for PUNJABI Faluda...;)
