Bun Kebabs From Buns Road
As someone who loves Karachi’s street food, I was most excited about these.
Lahore Based Eateries
Their mutton champs are highly recommended.

Fast Food Options
If you’re looking for something healthy, their lamb wraps are remarkable.
Nisa Sultan- Turkish Cusine
Steer clear of their Turkish drinks that essentially taste like extremely salty and thick namkeen lassi. Their wraps, however, looked very good.
Delish Pizza Bar
Even though I found the price steep (Rs. 200 for a large slice with a side of chili oil), I couldn’t resist myself as they pulled out a fresh pizza with pepperoni. If you prefer a margarita or other toppings, Delish has a lot of variety.
Latteria Mozzarella is a home-based business that makes thin crust pizzas and pastas using their Italian Grandmother’s recipe that has been tailored for the Pakistani palate.
Bablooz’ Pizza Bar and Grill
Their beef sliders are highly recommended as are their cheese fries. The cheese sauce that goes on top of their fries is every bit as indulgent as it sounds.
The Daily Deli
I’m a sucker for sliders and The Deli never disappoints.
BBGB– Gourmet Burger
Whatever you do, do not eat their signature beef burgers. I got lured in by the minimalistic logo and the fact that they’re home-based, but sadly the burger was absolutely terrible. Don’t waste your money here. You have been warned.
Serving up tacos with everything homemade from the salsa, to the taco shell to the meat within.
Their fried mac and cheese served with marinara sauce and honey mustard was absolutely delicious, do not miss out on this.
The Best Street Food
Looking for delicious bun kebabs? This is the place you must go to.
Whether you’re looking for savory or sweet products, Maro Tandoor offers both. Their Nutella Naans are a cult favorite but their Stuffed Naans and Roly Polys are even better. If you like their Nutella Naans, try their Snickers Naan with some chai.
Sarak Pay Karak
Did somebody say elachi chai?
King Kashmiri Tea
In case you like Kashmiri Chai more, head over to the King Kashmiri Tea stall for instant Kashmiri Chai.
If you’re bored of regular waffles, try these bubble waffles from Mr. Waffle. You can fill them with ice-cream and top them up with various sauces and toppings.
Awesamosas has one of the most innovative menus out there, chocolate pakoras sound so exciting. Also there steamosas are a cross between samosas and dumplings- a must try!
If gourmet kernel quoted with various toppings sparks your interest, make sure to check out Popnosh. Also great for munching on during the live music performances.Source Popnosh/ Facebook
