At Pakistan Chowk in Karachi, a vendor opened a small bun kabab shop at the roadside years ago. Today his business is a success and he has opened several shops across the city, all of which serve bun kababs, the traditional fast food that has come to symbolise the hustle and bustle of the city. – Hussain Afzal / White Star

 

Do you think the bun kabab has any symbolic value for the people of Karachi? Do you prefer traditional Pakistani fast food or multinational fast food chains? Will the bun kabab survive the influx of these chains?
