Taste: Nothing Beats Cheese
HOB’s Mozzarella Sticks is an unmatched blend of decadent cheese deliciousness! They’re simply the best! With thick sticks of mozzarella cheese enveloped in seasoned bread crumbs, these bite-sized appetizers provide cheesy goodness with added texture.
There’s a satisfying crunch of the bread crumb coating with each bite, giving way to the gooey, melty mozzarella cheese stretched and pulled to create those iconic cheese strings. The cheesy flavor is rich and creamy, not so strong to be overwhelming yet salty enough to balance against the mildly sweet crumbs.
Piping hot, the Mozzarella Sticks come straight out of the fryer – ready to be devoured. The ideal accompaniment for this classic snack.
Pro Tip: Try it with a creamy ranch dipping sauce to ensure no cheese is left behind!
Now let’s dive into the burgers. The Holy Cheese Steak Burger is the way to go!
The succulent chicken steak sizzles with flavor, while the jalapenos bring just the right amount of heat. Grilled onions add sweet notes and tomatoes inject an acidic dimension – all crafted together for a truly thrilling taste experience!
And then the pièce de résistance — melted mozzarella cheese that oozes over the sides like an angelic river. It’s like the cherry on top of an already delicious sundae. The cheese is melted to perfection, creating a delightful and creamy layer that perfectly complements the chicken steak and the veggies.
It’s a burger meant to be devoured by the bravest of the brave, those ready to take on a flavor adventure that will leave their taste buds crying out for more.
Price: Taste Makes Up for the Bill
I won’t lie – the prices are a bit steep. The Mozarella Sticks were PKR 499, which is unbearably expensive considering that there are only five pieces.
The burgers’ price is a bit on the high side, but they’re worth it. For PKR 629, we got a fully-loaded Holy Cheese Steak Burger.
But don’t worry – if you’ve got a university ID card, you can get a flat 30% off! That’s value for money right there.
HOB’s service was fast, friendly, and efficient. I highly appreciated the customer service since my order came quickly, i.e., within 15 minutes.
Plus, we ordered two drinks, Sprite and Pepsi. They only had Sprite that time, but the staff was kind enough to arrange Pepsi from outside – talk about going the extra mile!
The only downside? They didn’t have any sanitizers or a wash basin available for customers – but as long as you bring your own hand sanitizer, it’s all good!
Ambience: Simple Yet Beautiful
HOB is a small yet cozy joint with tastefully done black and yellow walls. The lighting fixtures are quirky and fun, adding to the place’s aesthetic. There are limited tables and chairs since it’s a small space – but that only adds to its charm!
The best part? HOB has lovely indoor plants around the restaurant, providing a calming atmosphere while you wait for your order.
Honorable Mentions: Chai Paratha
Experience a masterpiece of flavor and texture with HOB’s Chicken Cheese Paratha! Every paratha is hand-rolled and cooked to golden crispness on a tawa for an enjoyable crunch.
When you bite into it, the delightful flakes of buttery crust give way to succulent morsels of shredded chicken that ooze gooey, melted cheese.
Not too oily either – perfect anytime from breakfast to lunch!
But what’s a paratha if not paired with a steaming hot cup of chai? Thankfully, HOB’s tea collection can please even the most discerning tea connoisseur. HOB has everything: from Adrak Wali Chai to Doodh Patti to Elaichi Chai to Lemon Grass Tea.
There’s a perfect cup of tea for every occasion!
If you’re looking for a delicious, budget-friendly burger spot in town, then HOB is the place to go. With excellent service and mouth-watering food, it’s an experience that won’t disappoint.
And if there’s one thing I can guarantee, it’s this: with every bite of their cheesy goodness, you’ll be saying, ‘I’m cheesy, and I love it!’
