Burning Brownie gained popularity in Islamabad and has now expanded its offerings to Lahore. The extensive menu at Burning Brownie includes cakes, pastries, cheesecakes, brownies, and much more. The menu also features breakfast options.  

We sampled the Pain Perdu, Omelet, and Scrambled Eggs from the breakfast menu. The omelet was perfectly cooked and fluffy with onions, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs, jalapeños, mushrooms, and cheese. Served alongside grilled tomatoes, air-roasted potatoes, sausages, fresh green salad, and white bread, it was a treat for the taste buds.

Equally satisfying were the softly set scrambled eggs, complemented by sautéed potatoes, roasted tomatoes, sausages, fresh green salad, and white bread – a comforting and flavorful combination.

A standout among the breakfast offerings was the PAIN PERDU, stealing the show with its golden-brown slices, expertly caramelized to achieve a delightful crispness on the outside and a soft interior. It was paired with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup. 

While our appetites were satiated with the breakfast choices, we couldn’t resist exploring Burning Brownie’s renowned desserts. Opting for the Burning Brownie cheesecake, hazelnut pastry, and a selection of other tempting treats, we were thoroughly impressed by the quality and finesse of each dessert.

On a radiant Sunday evening, the renowned Sadaf Fawad Khan took center stage to unveil the much-anticipated ‘SIRAA Luxury Lawn ’24’ collection. The event, flawlessly coordinated by the talented Shireen Rehman, witnessed a dazzling turnout, with notable figures gracing the occasion, including the stunning Hikmat sisters, Aymen and Ammara, alongside the graceful Mariyam Nafees and many more.

We thoroughly enjoyed the nostalgic elements, from gajre to paan and tulsi. Gully Bites treated us to scrumptious Gujarati puri and refreshing strawberry juice.

As the evening unfolded, attendees were treated to the enchanting melodies of Zeeshan Ali, elevating the event’s allure. The perfect synergy of fashion and musical artistry marked the debut of SIRAA Luxury Lawn ’24 as an unforgettable experience.
