Dinarama Street Feast

It is an incredibly popular place and deserves all this attention to the fullest. It is open from 5 pm to 1 pm, from Thursday to Saturday. A paradise where you can find everything from American barbecue stands, Mexican taco stands, Chinese food to Italian pizza. The most enjoyable is to try everything little by little and share it in the middle because it is very difficult to choose from all the flavors. You sit on long shared tables, on barrels and benches that serve as standing tables. If you arrive before 7 pm, the entrance is free but after 7 pm, you pay 3 pounds per person.
