Start your day with Lamb : Cooked for over 12 hours in slow flame with lots of spices and goat leg-bones, nihari along with khameri roti is an amazing start to the day for a foodie. One of the best made Nihari is found in Karims, Opposite Gate no 1 of Jumma Masjid.

|Go for the kebabs at Babu Bhai Kebab Wale, the blink-and-you-miss eatery near a small mosque on Matia Mahal Street on your way to Chitli Qabar ( the road straight down opposite Gate no.1 of Jumma Masjid ). Somewhere at your knee level you will find a man grilling these buffalo-meat kebabs. They are so soft that they have to be held together by tying a thread around, earning them the name moniker dora or sutli kebab.|
