I'm not much of a foodie, but here's a place I enjoy going. Burgers are tasty, the ambience and retro décor is amazing.

Al Fatah mall is decent, but the reason I'm mentioning it here is a stall outside Al Fatah Mall. I can't remember how many times I have had their spiral tornado potatoes. My personal favorite is the Cheese Flavor. He makes it hygienically, and adds special imported spices on them that sets them apart from any other tornado potato you might have eaten before. It only costs 200 rupees and if you're near Hussain Chowk, give it a shot!

Shopping
I recommend this place for shopping. Be it casual, formal or shopping for children, you'll find just about everything in this mall. Not to mention it has a luxurious cinema on the 3rd floor.

This is by far Lahore's favorite mall. It has all the brands you would expect and offers a great experience regardless of your purpose of visit. Cinema, Fun city, Food court and what not.

Liberty chowk/roundabout/market is amongst the most iconic places in Lahore. Here you'll find plenty of local clothing shops, jewelry, ice cream, roll parathas and what not. It's the perfect place if one is shopping for weddings!

This street is a MUST VISIT if you come to Lahore especially in winters. Haveli rooftop is an excellent choice. The ambience, décor and atmosphere is reminiscent of the old and real Lahore.

You will be able get some great photographs here and have a nice little family time.

A pre-partition British construction, the building itself can attract visitors from a mile away. Inside you will find paintings, idols, scriptures, classical attires, swords, guns, ancient cutlery made of clay, and many other rare/precious things which leave the viewers in awe. For the people that love history, this place should be visited. Kindly confirm timings from them before going.

The Wagah Border. If you go to this place, even if you're not patriotic, I wouldn't be surprised if you're screaming, dancing and shouting all kinds of slogans there. The atmosphere is crazy all year round. Confirm the parade timings before going (First one is in the morning at 10, second one starts before ASAR prayer time, I'm not too sure)

This offers a great experience as well if you're into the Pakistan Army. Keep in mind that you would need to go early as they do not allow visitors after 1-2 pm. They also charge you an amount (200-300 rupees per person)

Fancy seeing some Mughal Architecture? Head over to Shalimar Gardens. It was built during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan.

A no brainer! Head over here in the afternoon. Minar-e-Pakistan and the Badshahi Masjid are located next to each other along with the Shahi Qilla. Don't miss either of these iconic Landmarks. Once you've spent enough time there, head over to Food Street which will be 5 mins away for an amazing rooftop dinner facing the Badshahi Masjid. Food is finger lickin good and the ambience along with live music is uh mazing!

Zoo
Mixed feelings about this place as it's not looked after well, but it can be a fun experience for kids as there is no shortage of animals here.

Compared to the Zoo on Mall Road, I like this Safari Park more as it brings you much closer to the animals here. You will get a caged-truck ride with lions walking around you! There is also a humungous net filled with birds and parrots and yes you can go inside. Only drawback about the Safari Park would be, it's at the outskirts of the city and may take you some time to reach.

Grocery
If I'm not wrong, this is their oldest branch. I've been coming here since childhood as it's only a 5 minutes drive from my place. You'll find plenty of household items, groceries and even freshly made delicious sandwiches in here.

Ice Cream & Milkshakes
Started from a basic ice cream cone stall 2 decades ago and now has an entire Ice cream parlor in Main Market, Gulberg II. The owner, Alamgir, sometimes comes himself and hands out cones and cold coffee from the same stall outside the parlor. As good and humble of a human he is, you won't have to look far for discovering his secret of success. Heaps of crowd mostly outside the parlor.
