Sure these have been mentioned before but here are my all time favorites thanks to growing up in Himayatnagar:
Plain Dosa at Gayatri Bhavan. The coconut chutney, Sambar and the other red colored chutney are all perfect
Chicken Burger (with free chips ) at King n Cardinal (the original)
Chicken Biryani at Cafe Bahar

It is absolute VFM.
Do go early else be prepared to wait for a table.
I waited 20 minutes on a sunday for lunch because I reached the place at 12:50 pm.
I did not find Punjagutta Shanbagh food to have any authenticity.

If anything, during my days, Universal was more popular and KC was the underdog. But, I am a KC guy through and through

April 28th :-
Me, Rajesh Rawal and Milecruncher visited "Nightflight" to taste their snacks. We ordered :-
Chicken Barrah Kebab
Did we order anything else?? I cannot recollect...LOL
The food was good. I like this place, decent ambience and food is nice. Will go back again.
April 29th :-
Me and Milecruncher decided to eat biryani at "Four Seasons". Unfortunately, due to our animated conversations we were off time limit ( >10:30PM in the night) so we decided to hop across the road to
Hotel Niagara. It was bad decision
We ordered Chicken Masala and Rotis and Meat Biryani
Chicken Masala was just about average. If my mood was bad now, i would rate it "below average".
Rotis were big, cold and rubber-like
Meat Biryani, was cold and tasteless. I had a couple of spoons and decided to stop.
Overall, Niagara at Tolichowki serves crappy food. Dont ever go there
April 30th :-
Decided to binge on some grilled sandwiches and Pav Bhaji at Mayur followed by a nice movie

Actually, i forgot to mention. On April 27th, been to " Methi's" for dinner.
Veg Tandoor Platter
Damages : Rs.470
I didnt like this experience. The food was pretty ordinary and it didnt tingle my taste buds
May 2nd, went out for dinner with wifey. This time it was at Sholay, Begumpet
We got the following :-
Bhuna Kukkad ( Chicken Gravy dish-Rs.200)
Rotis ( Rs.20 each)
Meat Biryani ( Rs.175)
I must confess this hotel is fast becoming my favorite. This time around i was glad to see quite a few tables full on sunday evening. Their ambience is superb and AC was chilling us to death ( very nice)
Coming to the food, each and every dish is prepared differently and its not like use same gravy and just a different dish name.
Bhuna Kukkad was not spicy but had some amazing flavour.
Rotis were superb, perfectly crisp and you can almost feel the dough in your mouth...LOL
I am a big fan of their biryani. So wont comment about it
If you havent tried, check it out. I am sure you wont be disappointed.
P.S: Its a record of sorts, except monday i think i ate almost every day of last week out.

Yesterday evening my roomie and me happened to go to 'chawla's chicken'
now these are the same guys of the chawla chicken ludhiana fame(featured on many food related programs as well) ,having their local franchise in hyderabad.
tried their famous creme chicken (white gravy with lot of kali mirch in it) and romali roti's.
i must say the gravy is certainly different ,you usually would expect white gravy to be on the sweet side ,this was not..i quite liked it to be honest.
the ambience is okish! (located near malaysian township kphb)
what i also noticed was gemini music with all the latest telegu songs being played here . i am sure uncle chawla in ludhiana would have never imagined that
total damage was about inr 200 for 2 people.

Papaji ka Dhaba........Again !
Been to Papaji Ka Dhaba on Thursday evening for dinner.
Decided to try their newly inducted kebabs so ordered the following :-
Chicken Sheek Kebab ( Rs.130)
Chilly Fish ( Rs.180)
Meat Biryani ( Rs.125)
Thumbs-Up ( Rs.20)
Chicken Sheek Kebab was nicely presented and tasted just average
Chilly Fish is superb
Meat Biryani was outstanding ( I am in love with Papaji style biryani) as it was freshly out of the handi
Damages : Rs.450

Padharo mare desh!
went to 'jharokha' which is part of dadu's in himayat nagar yesterday afternoon.
this place is exclusive for rajasthan dining.
ordered the rajasthani thali ,which had all the jazz of daal baati churma, gatte ka sabzi ,bajre ki roti, khicdi , tomato sev wali daal .
inr 375/- per thali with unlimited serving( if you ask me the food being so rich there is no room for any top ups)
this place only serves veg food,ambience is nice ,they have all the rajasthani decor and one fellow playing the raavan aata (some type of voilin) .
not a bad deal i would say.

Been long since i've ventured out for Lunch/Dinner with my family. Wandered out on Saturday for dinner and reached Waves, Hotel Sohail, Malakpet as we were returning home after visting a couple of cousins.
An ambient place, when planning to dine out with family in the Malakpet/Dilsukh Nagar region. If you are looking for some good quality food in that area, then this is the ultimate choice.
As you are aware of my love for food and that is clearly visible, when you look at my profile picture
Boneless Mutton Biryani
2 x Kinley Mineral Water
Total Dent: Rs. 665/-
Tandoori Prawns: Tender Prawns lapped up in Tandoori Masala and heartily cooked in a Tandoor to give it an earthly rustic flavor.
Afghani Chicken: Not on the spicier side but got it custom made with less spice and more of tinge.
Masala Kulcha: Good stuffing with ample amount of dry fruits thrust in. For the first time, I’ve seen a Masala Kulcha topped with cheese on top. It was lovely though.
Boneless Mutton Biryani: Nothing much to write about except it was simply MMMMMMMMMMMMMM….. Melt in the mouth type of meat. Awesome taste with equally tasty mirchi-ka-saalan.
Would love visiting it again soon and this time alone ‘cos I want to enjoy the Tandoori Prawns on the spicier side.
Avoiding spicy food as my wifey has been instructed by doctor to avoid spicy food for a couple of days. Why don’t doctors give a clear timeline than saying Couple of Days? Have always observed, these COUPLE OF DAYS always run into 3-4 months for sure
Mashoor Ice Cream at Famous
This was followed by customary ice cream session at Famous. As is the clock was slowly ticking towards 11:30, we were skeptical, if we would be able to have ice cream at famous, given the time it would take us to reach Nampally from Malakpet.
Reached Famous as soon as we could and ordered the ever fav. Mango Ice Cream, these pot ice creams never cease to entice me. Ordered 2 Mango Pots in the initial round and even before she could complete her 1st, I was already on my 3rd and by the time she completed her 2nd, I was way way ahead of her. I was in my 6th .
So, it was all 8 Pot Ice Creams, so Rs. 96/- with a satisfied tummy
I wanted to have one more, but had to avoid it as the time was not permitting me to have a couple of more ice creams.... would have loved a couple of scoops of Litchi Ice Cream too... Litchi, here I come soon.
