Nawabs were obsessed with their foods and this can clearly be witnessed in the old city of Hyderabad. We are eggetarians and so we couldn’t try the nawab’s favourites, but we surely tried the many vegetarian options that the city had to offer. Hyderabad has a very rich culture both influenced by the Southern region of India and by the Nawabs who ruled the city for decades.

Here we take you across some of our favourites, where food not only pleased our taste buds but also metaphorised the rich culture.

Day 1

We reached Hyderabad around 12 in the afternoon and checked in the hotel. Since it was lunch time already by the time we left, we squared upon this place called Chutneys at Banjara Road.

Chutneys is a South Indian Restaurant, serving delicious thali and other South Indian delicacies. The food is just amazing and the idlis here, just melts in the mouth. We ordered for a Podhi Idli, a thali and filter coffee. Everything was just as nice as the other. They serve a variety of chutneys (almost 6-7 verities’), with every dish, all of them equally appealing. This place is all vegetarian and almost everything in the menu tastes very good. Visit for an unforgettable experience of yummy South Indian food.

Where: They have outlets at Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills and Kukatpally. We had visited the Banjara Hill one.

When: 7A.M. to 11 P.M.

Cost: Rs. 800/- for 2

What to Eat: Idlis and filter coffee are must try

This place has four restaurants, Chow Patti for street food, Serengeti for North Indian Food, Eatmor for buffets and its amazing desserts and Far East for Oriental food.

With every bite, flavours burst in your mouth. You may be full but the want to taste more would just not leave your senses. A must visit if you are in Hyderabad.
