Thumbs up Hyderabad - Ramadan/Ramzan Meets 2009

This thread has been inspired by the Bombay thread (Bombay Ramadaan Meet Thursday 11th Sept '08)
WHY?
So that you forget all those busy workouts at the Gyms, forget the Calories, cholesterol, etc. And indulge in mouth-watering food!

DATE/DAY?
Starting from Sunday 23rd Aug 2009, this meet will not be for a single day but would be spread across the whole month! We can have the meet everyday or every alternate day!


TIME:
After 8:00 PM

Currently, the following list has been prepared by mobike008 for Haleem Joints as below:
  1. Pista House, Charminar ( Should reach early as their haleem finishes latest by 9:30pm)
  2. Sarvi, Rd No. 1, Banjara Hills
  3. Hyline Bakery, Gunfoundry
  4. Four Seasons, Tolichowki
  5. Cafe 555, Rd. No. 1, Banjara Hills
  6. Asian, Nampally (for Harees) Thank you Ravveendrra.
But, Haleem is not the only dish which is famous during Ramzan in Hyderabad! There are joints for sheek kababs, qubani ka meetha, kheer, firni, etc waiting to be discovered.


So, All the Calorie 'Unconscious' folks, say AYE!

Hi Nazim,

Could you please tell what are the other delicacies that are special to the Ramzan period. Somehow haven't developed the taste for Haleem.

Cheers

These are one round of meets that I will stay away from for two reasons:

1. Need to watch my wieght
2. Am a vegetarian- somehow cant imagine walking into a Haleem joint and asking for veg haleem . Pata chaley ki mera hi Kheema ban raha hai!! But seriously, the Haleem at four seasons is (was?) Very good- had it about 2 years ago when I was a non-veg eater.

Have fun guys, and also put some money aside to invest in a new wardrobe by the end of this month

Iftar is around 6:40+ PM these days.
It will come to around 6:25 as Ramzan progresses.

Taraweh prayers start from 8:00 Pm onwards and go on till almost 10 PM.

So I will be able to join in for any meet only after 10:00 PM.
Will definitely keep my eye on this thread and join is whenever its possible.


PS: Guys, who don't eat Beef, stay away from small Haleem counters.

How about a weekday visit to Charminar?
Also, visiting that area in the initial days will be better as the shopping crowd is less comparatively!

Does anyone know where we get the traditional kheer/firni around Banjara Hills?

P.S: I have already visited two outlets in the city! Cafe Bahar & Sarvi at Rd. No. 1

Hmm.. It's three plates actually!

Bahar is 55/- per plate and they give you a 350 ml thums-up pet bottle along with it! (It was not cold!)
Verdict: Decent Haleem and not as bad as Pista House!

Sarvi - 2 variants available. Normal at 65/- and special at 80/-
Verdict: The same taste as last year! Good. I like the special variant due to the extra cashews + cream + Egg!
