Description

Food is an integral part of being Hyderabadi, and there are a host of dishes peculiar to the city. In the oldest part of town are the best eateries with the choicest delicacies that define Hyderabadi cuisine. While the most visible and well-known dish of Hyderabad is the biryani, there are many other dishes that complement and supplement the King of Dishes!

In an evening walking tour lasting 3 hours, we will visit some of the best eateries serving Hyderabadi food and sample some delights and delicacies. From the local take on the famous paya to melt-in-the-mouth kebabs, from three types of chai to the famous Osmania biscuit – we will try out ten different dishes on the walk.

Note: This is not a vegetarian-friendly walk

Highlights

  • Paya Masala: The quintessential Hyderabadi breakfast is incomplete without a trencher of paya soaked up with the square Hyderabadi naan. This dish transforms the watery naan into a thicker masala and is eaten with a regular roti. You have to try it to believe it!
  • Bheja fry: The brain fry is a typical Hyderabadi accompaniment, and has tons of flavor
  • Kebabs: We try out and face off three varieties of kebabs against each other – which will be the winner. Is it one or the other? (Hint: It’s usually all three!)
  • Chai: Chai is the essential drink of India. In Hyderabad, we have our own special – it’s called Irani chai. Thick, sweet and served in tiny cups, it has driven millions of arguments and friendly conversations over the years. We try out a couple more types of chai and let you decide which you prefer.
