Pakistan’s capital city, Islamabad, just went on to pride itself with a fancy new restaurant unlike any other the country has seen. The place, which has been named ‘Hogwarts Café’, is a full on Harry Potter themed eatery complete with an impeccably curated menu and top-notch décor and ambience.
Located in the city’s Police Foundation area, the place boasts of an amazing menu fit for Potter head. Diners can pick from drinks and grubs like The Hungarian Horntail, Dragonfire Burger, The Half Blood Steak, Mandrake’s Tears, Wolfsbane, and, of course, Butterbeer.
“We have always wanted to visit a place where we can enjoy good food as well as where our kids can indulge in the world of Harry Potter. A nice place for the muggles, where they could work on their laptops, maybe read a book and have a mug of chilled Butterbeer at the same time,” Hassan and Haider, the two brothers that run the cafe told BuzzFeed.
“Buttebeer is our original recipe, and the Goblet of Fire (A Green Apple Lemonade) is also pretty loved. The Dragonfire Burger, the Hungarian Horntail Steak and our dishes from Cho Chang’s Kitchen are also really amazing”, they added.
Staying true to the wizardly theme, the furniture and interiors too are spot on with hanging candles, rustic brick walls, and each table adorned with a unique symbol and tiny figurines of Rowling’s characters.
The walls are painted in mystical words and speckled with wood-framed pictures (which unfortunately do not speak), iconic Harry Potter items like the Nimbus 200, the sorting hat and iconic newspaper clippings.
Potter Heads in the making can drown themselves in some of the cool literary matter from Rowling. And you can take some of the magic home with gorgeous Harry Potter memorabilia like quoted coffee mugs, the Time Turner locket, snitches, magic wands and more!
Indian restaurateurs, are we listening?
