With the number of orders increasing, Maqbool’s family helps him out in the kitchen to cater to customers’ orders. Lahori food enthusiasts’ personal favorite from their menu is the Mutton Rosh; a Shorba dipped roti with daal and mutton that’s supposed to be eaten all at once for the heavenly experience!
