HOW AUNTY MUNAVER’S NEW STORE IS MY EVERY WISH COME TRUE!
Growing up in Karachi, everyone you knew was related through one faithful and common favorite family – Aunty Munaver. A household name across town, no birthday was complete without digging into one of her cakes, be it the decadent and sinful Tres Leches or the seasonally anticipated Meringue Roulade. Having never met the famous face behind these staple desserts, Aunty Munaver has always felt like a member of the family!
This is why when I heard THE Aunty M was opening up a flagship eatery in Karachi, I felt like Dorothy had finally made it to the emerald gates of Oz! No longer would I need to order in advance and wait patiently for someone to start digging in before me. I could now have my absolute fav three milk cake whenever I wanted. Note to self: be careful what you wish for!
Walking into her new digs, it was everything I images. The sweet aroma of sugar and baked goods, a variety of savory bites and EVEN a proper main menu – it was all too real. But what caught my eye and almost made me tear up were the plethora of sizes and options when it came to her classic desserts. Yes, a mini 1-pound cake you can grab up for a treat or a medium cheesecake, perfect to gift someone. Oh those fresh fruit tarts that are inhaled before I make it to the car… SIGH.
or all Karachiites this is a big moment. Aunty M is here to take things up a notch and if you’re as hardcore a fan of her that I am – you know this means big business. I plan on having EVERYTHING on the menu and reporting back, so stay tuned!
