Lahore, Pakistan is a centre of traditional Pakistani food. The market, Food Street, is surrounded by centuries-old buildings. It’s open to traffic in the morning but as the sun sets, the street is closed to cars and scooters. This is where you can find the best traditional food in Lahore, even late night. First thing on the menu…bull testicles…a must-visit when you’re in Pakistan!

    So interesting to catch a glimpse of everyday life in Lahore…people enjoying themselves with late night food & drink. So tired of seeing of only seeing US news reports telling me that Pakistan is nothing but a war-ravaged country on the brink of nuclear catastrophe. Thanks for the post!
