In Pakistanmarker, a food street is a street that is devoted specifically to eating out. They are lined with food stalls, restaurants, and other food shops, and are typically pedestrianize. Food streets, and food parks, exist in several metropolitan cities in the country, and attending them has become a social norm, with people using them as both formal and informal meeting areas.

The first food street in Pakistan was Food Street, Gawalmandi in Lahoremarker. This has been followed by Melody Food Street and the food street in Blue Area in Islamabadmarker, Burns Road in Karachimarker, the food street near Ghantar Ghar in Peshawarmarker, and a second food street in Lahore at Anarkalimarker.

In Islamabad, prior to the creation of Melody Food Street, restaurants were scattered around the city. The food streets make a wide range of cuisines available in a single area. The streets are patronized by office workers during the daytime, and by families in the evening. Members of middle class society prefer them because they are less expensive than hotels or high-quality restraurants.

The development of food streets has faced some opposition, from local traders objecting to the competition and to the overcrowding and pressure on parking and other facilities that the rush of people to a food street causes, to Islamic Clerics objecting to food streets on the grounds that they encourage mixing of the sexes and prostitution.
