Default re: Hyderabad Meet Thread 2011 Meets_EDIT : Dec 22_Hadippa Lunch Meet

This meet was promised to be the biggest, baddest, most gastronomically fabulous meet of 2011 for the Team-BHP Hydeez. Some people changed their itineraries for this meet, some canceled their meetings. And boy did it exceed all expectations.

Guests started streaming in slowly in typical Nawabi style. But the partying had started as soon as there were just enough guests to make a crowd. The snacks were really tasty and the guests couldn't have enough of it. As Avi already mentioned, the snacks were being devoured in lesser time than new ones could be brought to the table. The Shikampur Mutton kebabs were really as good as advertised and the Pathar Gosht was quite juicy. The fish fry was surprisingly good but many missed the Tartar sauce which would have made it a better combo. The vegetarians were not forgotten and the veg kebabs, manchuria and pakodas were equally delicious (from what I "heard").

As the evening grew longer, the "busy-on-friday-evening-in-office" crowd slowly started pouring in. The crowd started getting more boisterous and the conversations were getting louder. Few who had cameras were clicking random pictures, and Brajesh and Avi kept ensuring that none of the guests were left devoid of the Nizam club hospitality, and more importantly, the delicious food. The "star" snacks of the evening were out-of-stock soon, and then came Reshmi Chicken, Chicken Tikka Kebabs, Cut-Mirchi, Palak pakodas, Onion Pakodas and Cheese Pakodas. Cheese pakodas were an instant hit and also burnt many mouths since the cheese inside was r-e-a-l-l-y hottt...!!!!!!

Arcot was in his true element and entertained everyone mimicking dialogues from the movie "The Angrez" in true Hyderabadi ishtyle. After the entertainment was over, dinner was served with the highlight being Dum Ka Murg and Mutton Biryani. The tadka dal was fabulous and Paneer Butter Masala was also nice. Trifle Pudding for dessert was the best end to this gastronomic journey of Nawabi cuisine and everyone was soon saying their goodbye's for the night. But in true T-Bhp style, at midnight, a (drive) plan was hatched to go to Famous Ice Creams, Mozamjahi Market where we all hogged on their popular Mango, Litchi and Chikoo ice creams.

Some more plans were being hatched to drive till Charminar and take some more group photos, but that got buried in the tired faces of many participants, and maybe relegated to the next dinner meet.

All in all it was a great party and a big thanks goes out to Brajesh and Avi for organising and making it happen. We should have such get-togethers more frequently Eagerly looking forward to the photos.


P.S. : My wife also had an equally great time and has penned her own account of last night's party. Below is an in-literatim account in her own words:
Quote:
Had a sumptuous Nizami feast in the company of wonderful bhpians at the Nizam club last night. Lively conversations and some wonderful mimicry by Arcot bhai set the tempo for the evening. "Eat, drink and Be Merry" was the mantra of the evening. Lip smacking non-veg starters of shikhampura kababs , apollo fish, pathar ka gosht, reshmi kababs and chicken tikkas had the evening rolling. Platters of veg manchuria, veg cutlets and some yummy cheese, onion and palak pakoras set the evening rolling for the veggie lovers. Appetizers working their way into starved enough systems had everyone suddenly coming to life and soon enough socializing was at its peak...The banquet hall was bustling and buzzing with a whole variety of conversations, with each and everyone taking part and relishing every moment. Dum ka murg, mutton biryani, veg fried rice, paneer butter masala, and dal tadka dominated the main course..Trifle pudding ruled the dessert counter!!

Now one would say 'What a wonderful end to an evening!!' But waittt there's more....Never ending conversations being carried downstairs right up to the car park and someone suddenly suggesting a drive to the 'Famous Ice cream' adda.. Soon enough everyone found themselves driving down to the place and hogging on some mouth melting mango, chickoo and litchee icecreams..phewww..

Delicious delicacies and cheerful conversation in the company of dynamic bhpians made up for an ineffable evening. Though the main highlight of the evening being an 'equal and enthusiastic participation' by the female counterparts. I was one of them and had a lovely time. A to the organizers of this wonderful evening and looking forward to many such lively and refreshing evenings!!!

Here are a few pictures from Fordmanchua's camera. I think mostof them were taken outside the Famous Ice-Cream Parlour.

Was just wondering what made you say this? Earlier, the cars which came out from Nizam Club gate (trying to go toward lakdi ka pul or trying to take U-turn at junction towards RBI) used to cut straight across the left lane of the traffic coming from amrutha castle side. These cars used to suddenly shoot out of the gates when the signal turned green, this is the main reason according to me that the cops probably intervened and forced the change of gates.

I know that. But, I still feel its a dumb idea. Anyone coming from Assembly side have to go upto Saifabad take a U-turn and enter the new entry gate.

Same goes for people coming from Lakdikapul. They need to take a left towards saifabad and take a U-turn and enter new entry gate.

Previously arrangement was a hindrance to general traffic due to people shooting out of exit gate.Now, its a hindrance for club members to enter the club. I reckon the location of club on the signal itself is the main problem.

Anyways, enough of offtopic !

Hydeez, there has been a lull on this thread for a couple of days. What and when is the next TBHP meet?

There is one in the offing for "homecoming of Pulsar56" during end of June-2011. Pulsar56, publish your Hyd visit dates here.

With rains starting this month, we should plan a Srisailam drive in July-2011.

Fully and whole-heartedly second this! In fact, the drive should involve a night halt at a resort just outside the temple town for reasons of availability of non-vegetarian food. It could also include a jungle trek or a walk down the many steps of Mallelateertham waterfalls.

After looking at the menu, it seems that Hydrbadi Nawabs had Nizami feast at Nizam club.

A handful of tbhpians like MC, Arcot, Traveloholic , Srimath and few others did this drive meet last monsoons and stayed overnight as well. We also did the walk down the Mallelatheertham falls.

During monsoons this entire stretch becomes so beautiful, its unexplainable.

I am game for this weekend overnighter again in July/August.

Yessire, it was a wonderful meet with 32 attendees. The food was exquisite and we all had a great time.

I see there is a mega meet happening this weekend with all big guns from pune and mumbai with you travelling all the way from sugar country. Goodluck for this mega meet and look forward to lots of pictures

We did have a nice meet courtesy Arcot at Sri Sailam. We visited Srisailam and had chicken/mutton cooked especially. It was a lot of fun and I don't mind doing a repeat. Guys can check out our trip here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...isailam-3.html (Escapade to the Wilderness of Srisailam)

Cheers

For the Srisailam drive, we could combine the best of both worlds . Go via Nagarjuna Sagar and come back via the usual Srisailam highway. Two dams for the trip of one!

I propose the weekend on 9-10 July 2011. Do we have traction on this proposal?

Except for 1st/2nd, I am game for any weekend in July. However, we need Arcot's confirmation and his contacts to get the rooms booked.

Arcot, can we repeat or better last year's feat?

July (Nagpur & Srisailam) Aug (Goa) Sep (Vizag). 4 vacations in 3 months.

Two months gap, then December would be Mega-Vacation

I think need to pull those strings of my purse tighter
