Laree Adda “Lorry Stop”, is a place between places. A junction point from where one prepares to embark on their daily commute, or a completely new adventure. People meet and talk about stories, such as cricket scores, politics and more. It is a centrally located spot from where you can take a bus, train, or many of the rickshaws lined out in front.
Laree Adda is a place that attracts people from all walks of life each engaged in their own individual paths looking towards a future full of hopes and dreams.
As these passerbys pour in and out of the space, Laree Adda is there to serve them with on-demand street inspired, made to order simple Pakistani/Indian food and canteen style offerings.
