I was a bit amused to here that Burns road to be . Burnes road and several other roads and streets in Karachi have been the cradle of food culture in Pakistan before Independence ( Sorry Lahoris Yes its not Lahore) . Go in any corner of Karachi and you’ll find streets with array of stalls and shops selling all sorts of food and snack which cannot be found in any other part of Pakistan. Take Khatay Baingan of Hyderabadi Colony, or Long Charay of Delhi Mercantile Society, Shabaz’s Chiken fry at Tariq Road or Chicken Karahi at D’silva town and Soharab goth, Gujrati fry gosht at Garden Agha khan jamat Khana or Students Biryani in Saddar… Karachi has so much to offer . From Traditional cuisine like Paya, Nihari, Korma, to French, Mexican , Italian, Iranian , Japanese and Chinese food….its not hard to satisfy the funkiest of taste buds in Karachi.
