The Karachi Kings have finally made it to the playoffs after the Lahore Qalandars lost to Islamabad United in an unfortunate turn of events (unfortunate for The Qalandars, mind you – the Karachi Kings, on the other hand, are feeling very lucky 🙂 .
After their last defeat at the hands of the Islamabad United, the Karachi Kings are dead-set on making a come back, and therefore, this match is bound to be one heck of a nail-biter. We are positive that the PSL fans in Karachi don’t want to miss even a second of these play-off matches, so, to save them the trouble, we have prepared a list of the top five home delivery food options in the city:

4. Chicken Broast
Most people prefer to have their greasy Chicken Broast in the comfort of their homes, away from prying and judging eyes (let’s be honest, we have all been there!), so it’s a good thing that all the famous ones now deliver to almost every corner of the city! Served with fries, dips, coleslaw and a piece of dinner roll, it’s a complete meal which will keep you full during the whole four hours of the match.

5. Salads and Wraps
Ordering from a restaurant doesn’t always have to send you on a calorie-counting guilt trip. There are many eateries all over city that seem to have recognized the fact that more and more people are now looking for healthier eating-out alternatives and so have started including low-carb and low-calorie options in their menus.

Munch on a scrumptious (yes, I mean it!) salad, usually delivered in a plastic bowl, or chow down on a yummy whole-wheat wrap during the match and the only thing you’ll have to worry about would be whether or not your favourite team wins the play-offs.
