What we don’t like

  • High prices

If you’re tired of the same old, it’s time to broaden your horizons and walk on the wild side! No, I’m not talking about trekking through the Himalayas but rather about exploring Markhor Smoked Meat. Now, you might be wondering, what’s so special about a smoked meat joint named after a goat? Well, it’s not just any goat – it’s the Markhor. 

Known for its rugged, fearless spirit, the Markhor roams the steep, rocky terrains of its native habitat. And just like its namesake, the restaurant doesn’t settle for the ordinary; it thrives on pushing its diners to embrace the thrill of the unknown. Intrigued? Well, you should be! Adventure awaits – one smoked meat masterpiece at a time!

Taste: Let’s Get Smokin’

Now, let’s talk about the Markhor Smoked Meat menu. It’s like a meat lover’s version of a fairy tale book. Juicy ribeyes, tender filet mignons, and sizzling sirloins – they’ve got them all. And they’re not just content with serving you a steak on a plate; they’re all about the drama. 

Ah, the Beef Tenderloin Steak! It came out on a sizzling platter, complete with the hypnotic dance of steam and the siren song of searing meat. As it graced my table, I found myself caught in a gaze that could only be described as pure infatuation.

The steak seemed to glisten with a seductive sheen. Its charred exterior, mesmerizingly caramelized, told tales of a passionate searing while a fragrant aura of rosemary and thyme enveloped me like a wild fragrance.

My knife glided through it with that satisfying whisper of a perfect cut, revealing a juicy interior that was nothing short of a carnivore’s dream. The first bite was a revelation – exploding on my palate like a fireworks display. 

But ah, the pièce de résistance – the wild herb butter. A dollop adorned the steak like a crown, adding a richness that sent my taste buds into a joyful tango. Its herbal embrace complemented the earthiness of the beef. 

And then there was the pepper sauce – a bold, fiery concoction that flirted shamelessly with my palate. Oh, the emotions that coursed through me! Joy, excitement, and an unabashed sense of pleasure! I couldn’t help but feel a sense of bittersweet satisfaction.

Price: Expensive but Worth it

Disclaimer: The prices quoted below are at the time of publishing. They are subject to change.

Let’s get one thing straight – Markhor Smoked Meat does not come cheap. At PKR 3,200, the Beef Tenderloin Steak alone will cost you an arm and a leg. No drinks included! Wow! How many other steakhouses in Karachi are THIS expensive? Barely a few! However, this is not your typical steakhouse – it’s more of an experience. You can taste the quality and complexity of each bite, making it worth every rupee.

Service: No Complaints

But it’s not just about the food; it’s about the experience. The service at Markhor Smoked Meat is nothing short of amazing. The waitstaff, with their infectious enthusiasm and deep knowledge of the menu, are excellent guides. 

Plus, they’re experts in their craft – it’s hard not to appreciate their dedication. And not to mention – the phenomenal FoodPanda delivery service that Markhor Smoked Meat has started offering. Now, you can have meat anytime, everytime.

Ambience: Absolutely Stunning

And last but certainly not least, the ambience. Karachi’s restaurants and cafés are known for their unique styles, and Markhor Smoked Meat more than lives up to the reputation! You can tell that this is a well-loved restaurant, and it’s clear why. The decor was a mix of rustic charm and modern flair, as if saying, “We’re here to satisfy your carnivorous cravings, and we’re doing it in style.” 

The wooden interior had an inviting feel, and the sofas were slightly lower relative to the tables to create a more intimate atmosphere. The lighting was dim, but that just added to the overall vibe. I half expected a dapper cow to walk up to me and take my order; that’s how charming the place was.

Honorable Mentions: Bask in the Brisket

But wait, Markhor Smoked Meat didn’t stop at just steaks. It can go toe-to-toe with other fast-food joints dotted across the city. If you’re a fan of burgers, you’ve come to the right place! You see, Markhor Smoked Meat is the home to the excellent Brisket Burger (Highwayman Style).

Imagine sinking your teeth into tender brisket beef slices, a smoky masterpiece that’ll have you wondering why you haven’t experienced this sooner. But that’s just the beginning. Sweet and savory, the caramelized onions enhance every bite. 

Feeling daring? Let the Jalapenos infuse your palate with zesty excitement, just like a markhor gallivanting through its wilderness playground. But the true showstopper? That’s undoubtedly Markhor’s special sauce – igniting an explosion of longing for one more bite.

Final Verdict

I can’t overstate how much fun I had at this restaurant. As I left, I felt a sense of satisfaction – an experience that was nothing short of epic. So, if you’re in the mood for something wild, this place has your name written all over it. So, let the Markhor guide your way – one smoked meat masterpiece at a time.

Bon voyage! However, the steak journey doesn’t end there! Look no further than Savyour! You can come for succulent burgers from one of our carefully selected Continental restaurants. Additionally, by ordering through Savyour, you will receive fantastic cashback each time. Isn’t it just brilliant?!
