Today evening been to Eat Street on Necklace road. We had the following :-

Cheese Dosa's
Paneer Dosa's
Chole and Bathure
Spring Rolls
Veg Manchuria
Frankies
Dry Fruit Kulfi/Pista Kulfi/Anjeer Kulfi
Jaleebi's

I loved the Chole Bathure, it was delicious to say the least. My nieces polished off 2 plates of springrolls together

Loved the Kulfi too, different style of presentation, they cut them into pieces and present with toothpicks

Jaleebi sucked big time

Veg Manchuria too was sad

It was drizzling ( actually raining heavily) and we had a great time sitting on the banks of the lake and it was just beautiful. Nice place to spend the evening with kids. However, prices are on steeper side

Some examples :-
Rs.20 for 750ml water
Dosa : Rs.70 etc.

I'll go back only for Chole Bathure and Kulfi

Seeking advice:

1) Which place serves the best momos in Hyderabad/Secunderabad/Cyberabad (not looking at venues like Golden Dragon of Taj Krishna or Mainland China or such level)?

2) Where exactly in Sindhi Colony are the best Vada-Pav to be found?

Cheers!

Just outside of Dimpy Pan Palace. Each single wada pav cost 10 bucks and was really tasty and the same stuff was available at eat street for Rs.25 to Rs.40

apart from the locations suggested by others ,you can also try
the momo counter @ citi centre mall ( banjara hills rd no 1) . right next to exit of food bazaar on the ground floor there is this place which serves momo's

i guess its 40 bucks for 10 pieces.

try that one out

yet to try the vada pav @ sindhi colony ,have had an overdose of vada pav's ( considering i belong from mumbai) so going by mobike's suggestion i guess they are equally good as per the mumbai standards.

I too love the Chole Bathure at Eat Street---had it 3 times so far and was always tasty. But when I took my BIL there, his plate was not that good---probably they ran out of stuff and gave him left overs

Now, where on PG Road is that place---I remember landmarks like Mamta sweets stall, the place where you get paani puris and FoodWorld---any place holders for us?

OK got it now after asking my daughter---she says the very spot where she has paani puri is Dimmy's pan shop (she says it is not 'Dimpy's pan shop). Thanks for not posting in time---looks like you are busy for a change!!

Yes, they are almost as good as you get in Mumbai but you may probably think otherwise. Nevertheless, they are worth a try

Ok, let me try giving directions in a different way. When your coming from Ranigunj, you cross universal bakery and you take the first LEFT lane ( before paradise hotel) and you go ahead and Dimmy pan palace is on your left hand side after you cross Pendikanti Marriage Hall ( my sister got married here). Is this clear enough?

Yeah, i know its Dimmy but somehow i can never say it as Dimmy. Maybe i love the name "Dimpy"....LOL

EDIT: Btw, i was not busy today at all. I was working from home first half and second half i was at the zoo. Been there after a decade or so and it was drizzling all the time and enjoyed thoroughly. Pictures to come up in a couple of days on the travelogue section :-)

Wifey brought Haleem last night from Y2K. I somehow have not developed taste for Haleem but still gave it a try last night and oh boy, it was in a different world all together.

Y2K Haleem, a definite must have.

Default Chens... a lil chinese joint in Sikh village road

I want to mention about a very small place called "Chens".. a small joint serving very good chinese food, with very competitive pricing... which I frequented a lot in my tenure of 3 years in hyderabad... The quantity and taste Vs price was a real VFM... Around a year back they have moved to a bigger place in the main Sikh village road(top of Spencers), the quality has diluted a bit... but its is still worth trying. I have not tried(or seen) any top of the line exotic menu items, but the regular stuff is pretty decent.

I availed the 50% offer at Ohri's Basheerbagh on Wednesday(Aug 26th) as it was their 10th anniversary. I tipped off some of you folks and only Hillram decided to avail this offer.

We reached Ming's Court unsually early which is around 8pm ( my regular time is after 9:30pm) knowing well that entire hyderabad must be thronging that place and oh boy! was i right which saw when we were heading out of the restuarant. Loads of people dying to get inside the restuarant to avail this never before offer...LOL

We ordered the following :-

1 Veg Love Bags ( ordered after taking Ram's feedback as waiter said dont order today due to the rush. but it was good)
2 Veg Chilly Sticks
1 Red Chilli Fish
3 Fruit Punches
2 Mocktails for me
Okra and Potates in Soya Sauce
Schezwan Chicken Noodles
Veg Garlic Burnt Fried Rice
1 Veg Soft Noodles
Total Bill : ~ Rs.2350 ( And, I paid only 1250 or so)

We are totally in love with Love Bags and Chilly Sticks, especially my mom drools over this stuff.

Red Chilli Fish was quite good. Crispy and quite spicy just as my palate demands

My mocktails were served super chilled ( you know the right temparature makes that difference)

Okra and Potato gravy was superb. Okra ( Bhendi) was served in long thin pieces and perfectly grilled.

Schezwan C. Noodles were awesome just that i was the only NV guy on the table and had to pack the stuff. They serve enormous portions

Met Ram who was seated next to our table and looked to me he too enjoyed his evening there. Ram, how was your experience? I never had a bad experience there.

Dont mean to go completely off track here , but I recently visited Hyderabad.
The food there is amazing , when you order Paneer Masala , you get Paneer Masala, not Masala Paneer , like you do in Bangalore. There would be a lot of Masala and very very less Paneer here.
Biryani's are to die for. Feeling hungry again , just had my Lunch , but thinking about the Biryani's am feeling hungry again.

Wish I could go down to hyderabad for lunch and come back to bangalore to work...
