When Ethnic Flavours meet Modern Ambiance, it’s becomes a must-have experience! Based in West London, founder Aida Khan opened up her new eatery called SHOLA Kitchen, earlier this year in White City Place, West London. Not only has sparked the attention of the Traditional Karachi Flavour Enthusiasts from London and all across the UK. But has gained massive popularity across London for its delicious Pakistani flavours.
SuperSisters is an Online platform that aims to feature Muslim Women in the UK who are: hustling, breaking barriers and are making a noise. It was a pleasure meeting and conversing with Aida, who is such a Boss Woman. Not only is her new restaurant making waves, she also won the ‘Food Entrepreneur of the Year’ award at the ‘3rd London Asian Business Awards’.
Team SuperSisters were not only excited, but keen to meet the star behind this restaurant. We were welcomed by a warm ambiance inside SHOLA Kitchen, with a fresh Interior, soft white and yellow hues which are so soothing to the eyes. We instantly fell in love with the calming interior, with traditional paintings and pictures based on Pakistan on the walls, and ethnic Hanging lamps. This eatery is all about Pakistani food, specifically Karachi. Karachi is a cosmopolitan city of Pakistan, which is rich in its food heritage and traditions. Aida is from Karachi and wanted to start a restaurant serving flavours from her home city.
Located in West London, in White City Place, SHOLA Kitchen brings you home. With flavours as rich and comforting as these, it’s a treat to have. Sitting down with Aida and having a chat about her business and herself was a treat itself. Aida spoke about how moving to London made her miss the food from back home, which is all about the rich food. The main idea is to incorporate the slow cooked meals in to everyday life, and to stay close to the flavours of home. Karachi is such a vibrant city and the flavours are rich to the core.
Let’s talk about the scrumptious food menu. Every item on the menu is close to what is usually cooked in homes of Karachi. The food that families sit and eat together on a hot summer afternoon after the kids come back from school, or a festive dinner party where friends and family gather.
The menu at Shola kitchen is a right balance of Vegetarian and non-veg options such as Vegetarian and Chicken Pakora’s, Aaloo Chana Chaat, Bun Kebabs, Kaalay Channay , Masala Fries, Desi Slaw, Crispy Bhindi (Okra), Lamb Shoulder, Khattay Aaloo, Classic Daal, Chana Chaat, Palak Paneer, Chikken Tika and so much more. (You need to visit to try for yourself :D).
The menu is designed for everyone. Perfect for Special events such as Christmas/New years Parties, Birthdays or a corporate lunch; it’s a must-visit place.
The food is such a burst of rich Asian flavor, such a party in the mouth. SThe food is such a burst of rich Asian flavour, such a party in the mouth.
