Cafe de Milano

The Italian bakery and restaurant Cafe de Milano occupies the basement of Aman Center in the Main University Road (use the Telenor office as a reference point). Many come here for the scrumptious cakes, but meals like steaks, barbecue, seafood, and even Thai and Chinese dishes are served.


Green tea (or kahwah) is the Peshawari beverage of choice. The age-old recipe dictates that tea be brewed in a large copper container (samovar), with spices like saffron, cinnamon and cardamom added for fragrance and flavor. Nowadays, liberties are often taken with the original recipe, but drinking kahwah remains an indispensable tradition. Another noteworthy treat is the falooda, a sweet dessert drink prepared with rose syrup, basil, jello bits and milk.
