Hello Friends,

Picked up this site which details best places for food (according to some voting stats)

Found some places to be interesting and some i had never heard of , it might be useful for some who might want to explore new places ( if you havent been there still !! )

Not sure how many of us may agree to the ratings but this is kind of a ready reckoner for some good food places/night hangouts @ Hyd. Have a look

I was bored eating the same old cream and fudge stuff, so after much research I went to Meting Moments (opp KBR park). We ordered the two sundae's. Frosted Pearl Drops and Peach Melba. It was rotten to say the least. The Lychees and peaches were horrible tasting. The vanilla ice cream was ok, but the rotten fruits spoiled the taste. Moreover contrary to what was written in the menu, there was no whipped cream whatsoever in it and when we asked why, the waiter gave a silly excuse, that , 'bache nahee hain, toh cream kam padgaye'

I feel like eating some old fashioned ice cream sundae, the one that we get in a tall glasses. Is there any place in Hyd that serves it ? Somethng like this ...

Straight away head to "Havemore" in Ohris at Basheerbagh for this type of experience. Try their following icecreams

Monica Lewinsky
Midnight Beauty
Titanic ( Gigantic icecream, good for 3-4 people)
Bullseye ( My favorite choco-cake in Hyderabad. Yet to eat a better one)


Last evening, late in the night felt hungry and ordered for "Spl Mutton Biryani" home delivered from Spice King, Himaythnagar which is part of Blue Fox hotels

Biryani was simply awesome if you like it spicy. Tender meat pieces, loads of masala and very unlike Paradise, Bahar's style

Cost was Rs.260+ Rs. 26 tax + Rest Tip = Rs.300

If you dont wanna travel to Basheerbagh, the Havmore at Ohris Banjara also has the same menu. If you find yourself in Secbad esp around MG Road/Paradise you can go to good old Softy Den opposite Gandhi Statue.

Hmm. Basheerbagh, MG Road, all are the same for us, Hitec City/Miyapur Residents. Depressing lack of choices in our part of the city.

Finally its good to be back in the city of biryanis!!

First thing I did on reaching was to grab a pack of Special Chicken biryani from Paradise takeaway at Masab Tank.

This was probably the spiciest biryani I have ever had from Paradise It was extremely spicy. Thank God I did not ask for double masala. I had to remove some of the masala from the biryani before I finished off my meal. However, I still don't like the salan and raita that Paradise serves. It feels hideous to me sadly. I have had better raita at Green Bawarchi and Shadab. Overall the biryani was good, chiken pieces were thankfully tasty this time around and very chunky!

Will rate it 3/5.

I had no idea you could ask for double masala! How much extra do they charge for that? I often find the vegetable biryani too bland for my tastes

Someone posted it here on the thread. I guess it was @mobike. The Veg biryani is a joke almost everywhere. And frankly speaking biryanis were never meant to be vegetarian after all ehh

Thats part of the Hyderabad Foodies group which me and some of other BHPians on this thread are members

I didnt quite understand whats so special about the rate except the charity angle to this event.

Havemore Icecreams are worth the visit even from a different city. Only Basheerbagh btw, I didnt like at other outlets of Ohris

Try those ice-creams along with their famed Chola Bathura ( Best in India) and Cutlets ( again one of the best), you will be a happy man

Those famous words were quoted by me

Btw, Biryanis were also never meant to be Chicken. So you too please move to the real biryani which is Mutton


@Hellmet, I aske double masala by default when Iam taking it away. Their are no additional charges. They just need to bend little more and dig the masala from the base of the vessel, that's all. Waiter who may have a back-problem can attribute his problem to my age-old requests of "Double Masala"

Yes. I have been to Kababish. They are value for money. And their Sharwarma are certainly in demand. Two weeks back, I went there at 9:30, and they were over by then. Next day (happened to be Sunday), I went there at 8:20 but again it was over. Next, I went on weekday at 7PM and had them.
Their kababs are good as well.

Well, what can we vegetarians do but eat what is on offer?
We routinely order an extra curry to accompany our biryani unlike my non-vegetarian friends for whom the meat offers sufficient flavor in itself.
I'll certainly be trying double-masala next time!
