In Karachi, this is the one place you just have to visit. It serves typical Pakistani food and trust me, it's worth a visit. I wasn't expecting too much but with the rich culture attached to this place, I was delighted. And best of all, the food here isn't much expensive, anyone can simply come here and dine in.

Best place if you are looking for typical Pakistani breakfast. Roadside food was never been an amazing experience before visiting this place! 👍
