Is Karachi truly the world’s capital of Biryani? Asks Russel Arnold

Sri Lankan commentator’s Twitter post left people in laughter when he asked the citizens of Karachi if Karachi truly is the capital of Biryani.

Sri Lankan commentator, Russel Arnold, seems to be a food-lover, as he once again cheered his Pakistani followers after he asked people to confirm if Karachi is truly the world capital of Biryani-Asia’s popular rice dish, in his tweet.

“Great to be back in Karachi. I am told it is the Biryani Capital of the World? True?” wrote Russel Arnold in the tweet.

A colossal reaction from the delighted fans came on his tweet. Former cricketer Faisal Iqbal, responding to his tweet, asked Arnold to try the BBQ in Karachi also. In his tweet yesterday, Arnold shared his picture from the gym which he captioned as: “Back on the #Nobundychallenge to make room for the #karachi Biriyani #PAKvSL.”

Last week, Pakistanis cracked up when Russel Arnold, asked the famous ‘Pindi Boys‘ for dining out options in Rawalpindi.

Arnold, sought the advice of Pindi Boys, whether he should eat Mamoo Burger or famous Savour Food.

“Hey, Pindi boys. What should I eat tonight? Mamoo Burger or Savour Foods rice?” wrote Russel Arnold.

Soon interesting replies came on his tweet with people giving him various ideas.

The social media users, however, divided with many vouching for Savor Foods – a renowned restaurant in Rawalpindi. Some even advised him to go for Shinwari Karahi with Pakistani cricketer, Usman Shinwari.

Russel Arnold is on a tour to Pakistan with the Sri Lankan cricket team that has returned to Pakistan for a two test-match series in December. The team earlier traveled Pakistan in September for ODI and T20 series.

Sri Lankan cricketing team will play its second test match against Pakistan in Karachi from 19th to 23rd December.

Earlier, during the press conference in Pakistan, Russel Arnold expressed his happiness on visiting Pakistan.

Russel Arnold, said: “Pakistan has been one of my favorite places to tour… the sights, experiences you would not get anywhere else.

“I am quite excited about the return of Test cricket to a nation where the sport is loved and we feel a lot of love from the people. Looking forward to feeling at home once again.”

While leaving Rawalpindi, he thanked the law enforcement agencies for their efficient security during their stay in the city.
