Rain, Rain, go away, come again another day. Karachiites would do anything but chant that!

We have made a few special restaurant mentions throughout the article so you waste no time in deciding where to order from. However, if you want to explore more options, go ahead and click here to see what’s special.
Let’s start with everyone’s favorite, the Desi snacks in Karachi.

You can continue to gobble them up and never feel full which is the beauty of this savory item.

Chaat has numerous variants which is all in all a play for our taste buds. You can either enjoy a plain Chaat of standard ingredients or opt for the Dahi Phulki ones.
Yoghurt seems to be the star of Chana Chaat which combines onions, green chilies, chick peas, tomatoes, tamarind sauce and other spices very well. But a Chaat without yogurt is equally popular and makes use of Papri too, just like Dhai Phulki Chaat.

You may not want to think about dinner if you have consumed one of these because one zinger burger in itself is a meal.
Zinger burgers are popular snacking items because one cannot simply curb the addiction of flavors. Secondly, for meat lovers, a crisp zingy crust chicken fillet can never be replaced with any other kind of burger patty.
Unless it’s char-grilled, we could make an exception!

Some of us enjoy munching on bite sized snacks, irrespective of the time in a day. French fries, Chicken Pop Corns, Nuggets, flavored steamed Corn are unusual options but nevertheless good. Fried chicken is another popular option because it can easily be made into a meal with condiments. When eaten alone, it is the world’s best snack.
