A yellow mobile restaurant ‘Abe Khao!’ In front of a private college in Sector H11 Four of the Pakistani capital Islamabad. Is very unique
It uses sign language to order because its owners and all those who work here are deaf.
‘Abe eat! The idea for this mobile restaurant, called Food Truck, came to Ayesha Raza of Islamabad some time ago, whose father, mother and two brothers are partially or completely deaf.
Ayesha thought why not arrange a business for her brothers which is out of the ordinary.
With this in mind, he started working on a mobile restaurant in which not only the entire staff would be deprived of hearing but also a menu in sign language so that it would be easy for customers to place orders.
“The majority of hearing-impaired youth in Pakistan are unemployed and face issues such as language, inequality and humiliation,” she said.
“Abe Khao Food Truck helps customers understand the environment of the hearing impaired and their orders have to be sign language.”
The restaurant menu also has gestures in sign language so that customers can order the relevant menu items in the same way.
It is not only a mobile restaurant but also a means of communication between ordinary and deaf people.
“We must make our own way, even in the case of a very small and insignificant business,” said Ayesha’s brother, Sheikh Faizan, in sign language, “because as free and independent human beings. Our dignity is above all for us.
