Fort Road Food Street (Urdu: سڑک خوراک - روشنائی دروازہ, Sarak-e-Khorak - Roshnai Darwaza) is a food street located between Fort Road and Roshnai Gate of the Walled City in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. The street was reconstructed and opened in 2012 as a tourist attraction, by offering Lahori cuisine and views of Badshahi Mosque. The street was inaugurated on 21 January 2012, by Hamza Shahbaz Sharif to replace Gawalmandi Food Street. In 2013, the Walled City Lahore Authority (WCLA) took charge of the food street from the district government and gave it a major face-lift in collaboration with the private sector.
The Fort Road Food Street is renowned for traditional Lahori cuisines with a stunning view of the majestic Mughal era Badshahi Mosque. The building itself that the street is based on was built during the era of the Mughal Empire and the British Rule.
