Coined as the Foodie Nation, Pakistan hosts more than its fair share of good restaurants and even a bigger share of citizens who don’t need a reason to eat. Be it a wedding event, a small family gathering or simply mindless munching, we Pakistanis make sure the highlight of the moment is food. Our focus is more often than not on food: junk food, Asian, continental, desi, fusion food… You get the picture.
However, what’s amazing is that it’s not only us, regular citizens hogging food, trying every new restaurant that pops up every weekend; our beloved Pakistani celebrities are die-hard foodies too!
Check out the top 10 Pakistani celebrities who are die-hard foodies like us!
1. Urwa Hocane
The Na-Maloom Afraad actress Urwa Hocane is an avid chocoholic! How she maintains her good looks with such an addiction is beyond us!
Oh and she is a good chef too!
2. Sikander Rizvi
We have seen how good of an actor Noor Jehan’s grandson is but what most of us didn’t know was that Sikander Rizvi was previously a restaurateur and a chef by profession! While working on new movies, he is also running the popular gourmet café, Xanders on the side.
3. Anoushey Ashraf
Pakistan’s youth icon, Anoushey Ashraf is yet another one of our favorite foodies! She loves ALL kinds of food but she has a slight bias in favor of good old desi food. She is currently shooting for 7Up’s #AsalFoodie show.
4. Sarwat Gillani
Dimpled beauty, Sarwat Gillani is an all things a biryani fan! Be it Hyderabadi biryani, Sindhi one or Karachi biryani, the JPNA star loves them all!

8. Tooba Siddiqui
Yet another self-confessed foodie, Tooba Siddiqui loves all things food too! How she maintains her size zero figure is a mystery!
