1. Breakfast at Khan’s Islamic Restaurant

This place has got to be one if not the oldest, one of the legendary spots for Mirian. They serve a wide range of Pakistani and Indian cuisine here. 

If you are like me, you can’t really have a heavy breakfast, a piece of Roti Canai and Roti Telur is enough for you to go about your day! (On other days, I would be downing a large bowl of Mee Kolok)
