Gosh, what an appetite you guys have!!! My son brings Haleem from Sarvi every other day, and after having 4 or 5 scoops of it, my tummy gets full, so much so that I tend to skip dinner.

In comparision, you guys are hitting 3 or 5 joints! Jeezzz!

Avi Bhai, hope you are speaking about having Haleem at Shah Ghouse at Shahali Banda outlet. If you are planning to have it at Toli Chowki Outlet, then please do let me know. Just in order to chalk out the route map for the "Expedition'e Haleem"

We need to feel the special energy of old city at night atleast once during this festival.[/quote]
+1 on this. The Night Life of Old City during this season is a scene never to be missed.

Well, for abvious reasons I have cut down the quantity to a large extent. But, given a chance, I can easily gobble down 3 if not 4 plates

Plan is to share 1/2 a plate of single haleem at each outlet and move on to next one.

I dont mind both Shali Banda and Toli Chowki outlets. That way we can compare the taste of the same brand

I leave it to you to chalk out a plan so we can hit atleast 4 major spots. 2 on this side of the city and 2 in old city with old city coming in during the later part.

I dont have papers for the bike and these days cops are on rampage and stop only bikers. My daily trip to gym which is 1km away is through bylanes of Himayathnagar due to this problem.

If you promise to use your contacts in police if anything undue happens, Will gladly get my bike

The plan is to hit each outlet and taste the Haleem. Variety is the spice of life and that's what we plan to do this time.

Yeah, I heard it Avi Bhai. Both do taste different for sure.

Aye Aye Sire. The plan is being chalked out to hit 2 here and 3 there. This way, we would be on 2.5 each.

Do you really think cops will stop you during Peak Ramzan Season, that too at places like Mehdipatnam, Old City and etc. No issues at all Bro. You can get your bike without any issues for sure.

Ani, you coming in your Getaway all the way or planning to hop onto any bike??

I am as you guys know 'tentative king'. I might join you guys.

If I am joining, either I will get my bike or car depending on the rain conditions that day!! Or if Ani getting his getaway, I would like to come in it!!! A full 360 degree view of Old city would be awesome sight (me thinks!!)

I and one of my friend (with our families) had been to the old city yesterday night at around 12:30 AM. It was our 1st visit to the old city during the holy month of Ramazan. We were literally shocked to see the traffic, crowd and the lighting during that time of the day(read night). I had heard, but I had not expected it to be on that grand scale. The ladies did some shopping from laad bazaar. The children too had a good time. The area in and around Charminar was jampacked with people either eating or shopping. Went to Pista House at around 1:30 AM for their Haleem, but it was over. Had Kubani ka meetha and some other stuff.

It was a tremendous experience I must say!!

You went all the way till Pista House to have their Haleem.

function AdventureHaleem(type, reaction)
{
if (myHaleem()== "VEG")
return "VEG Ok";
else
return "NON-VEG ";
}

They are downing their shutters by 11.30 these days. Not much crowd seen at Pista House these days. I have not tasted their haleem for the past 2 years. Their Quality has gone down the drain and would go further down in the days to come.

If it was for their Non-Veg Haleem, then you could have tried Shadab or ShahGhouse. They both serve great Haleems.

Waiting for the plan/map details soon and please do plan in such a way we go from behind the charminar as some us are using cars and wouldnt prefer the main road from purana pul to shalibanda.
