Bun kebab is a traditional Pakistani street food originating from Karachi that is enjoyed in many parts of the city. This savory snack consists of a bun filled with a combination of shami kebab, chutney, raita, onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers, then seared until nicely colored and crispy.

Chaat is a term used to describe a variety of south asian street foods, snacks, or small meals which typically feature a combination of salty, spicy, sweet, and sour flavors. The name chaat is derived from the Hindi verb chaatna, meaning to lick, possibly referring to how delicious these dishes are. Chaat can be enjoyed as a standalone snack, or it can be combined with other dishes to make a big meal. Chaatwallas (street vendors) in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh serve up a variety of chaat recipes, from stuffed bread to deep-fried pastries, with accompanying dipping sauces such as garlic chutney and green chutney. Popular varieties of chaat include papri chaat, dahi puri, and katori chaat.

For those new to the world of Pakistani cuisine, samosas offer an ideal introduction due to their crunchy texture and a variety of flavorful fillings. Deep-fried and triangular in shape, these savory pastries are stuffed with a variety of ingredients such as onions, lentils, spiced potatoes, peas, or ground meat. It is believed that samosas were brought to India from Central Asia along ancient trade routes. Traditionally served hot, samosas are usually accompanied with chopped onions, yogurt, or a range of homemade chutneys made with ingredients like mint, coriander, or tamarind. Mmmmm.
