Karachi people, it's chow-time.

This weekend, we forget all about our New Year's resolution, put away our diet plans and block our nutritionist's calls. The once-a-year Karachi Eat festival has kicked off today!

Here's what's going down on Day 1:

Early birds may not get a discount, but there is the benefit of hassle-free entry!

Ever seen such a small line at a festival in Karachi?

Psst, Faysal Bank customers get express entry. #TotallyJealous

It's totally picnic weather — we can't believe this is Karachi!

Fingers crossed for a downpour-free Karachi Eat

Here's what looks cool at the fest.

Breast & Loin's switched up their menu from last year and is serving these 'smashamosas'. Yum!

Nom Nom Tacos earned its name with these delish servings.

Could there be a more perfect dessert? Happy tears, courtesy Crepe Tease.

So this is why there's a big fuss about The Waffle Cart.

We're having dinner and dessert at Sugared!

Gouda try the JuicyLucy burger!

Our final spread - we quite liked our haul!
