Home to some of the best food in Karachi, Pakistan Burns Road was
named after the British -spy doctor Mr James Burnes, who served the
Raj in the first half of 19th century in Sindh.
In 1947, during the partition refugees from Delhi started a new life
on these streets. Many had only clothes on their back, their stories
and of course their food.
Burns Road, over time became the celebrated food central of the city
because migrants from India liked to eat out the way they used to back
in their native towns before the partition. Most of the surviving
eateries had humble All beginnings and it took them years and years of
sheer hard work before becoming household names not only in Pakistan
but also world over
