Fukhera Khalid and Wasim Akram

Hats off to you chef, you can’t even get this in Pakistan, fantastic!

Chak 89, the award winning Indian restaurant was all excited when Wasim Akram, the Pakistani cricket legend arrived with a few of his friends to have a meal and chill out.

Wasim looking fit and healthy went through the Chak 89 menu, asking the waiter to make him the famous Chak Chicken Special and Karahi Lamb in true Pakistani style. The waiter took his order and headed straight to Chak 89’s head chef, who gladly served Wasim his Pakistani style Karahi Lamb. Wasim looking surprised could not believe what the chef had made, he said, “Hats off to you chef, you can’t even get this in Pakistan, fantastic!” The chef with a bit of banter replied, “Wasim, you got caught out, we can make the food to whichever style you like”

Fukhera Khalid, owner of Chak 89, who popped in especially to meet Wasim, was all thrilled and excited. One of the diners said to Fukhera Khalid, “We don’t normally see you here?” Fukhera Khalid replied, “I know, but when I was younger, my boyhood hero was Wasim Akram, he’s a legend.”

After a long and enjoyable evening, Wasim, being the gentleman that he is, happily posed for some photos with the other diners and signed the Chak 89 celebrity wall.
