Default Miyaa.....!Hyderabad Bound- Trainalogue

Hi guys,

I am off to the homeland of the famous Hyderabadi Biriyani, the world famous in India- Hyderabad

This travel is by Train and i am starting from Bangy on Monday(22nd) evening, reaching there by Tuesday(23rd) Morning and returning back to Namma Bengaluru on Thursday(25th) morning.

This trip is mostly for my official work and the later part will be dedicated to good old Automobiles out there in the big city of Nawabs.

My friend Brat001 is accompanying me on this trip, he's coming only for hunting ( mostly cars, whatelse) He's determined to shop and get along one classics/vintage on this outing.

So Carbug and Stanher, here we come, any hyderabadi's who know of any classic's / Vintages for sale, kindly co-ordinate, thanks in advance.

Pawan,
Welcome home.
Check out FOUR SEASONS at Mehdipatnam-Tolichowki road.
This is Hyderabadi Biryani at its best, unlike the (much hyped) other outlets.
Classic and vintage cars or bikes?
Regards,

Well the Hyderabadi Biryani is tempting, this is my first visit to hyderabad in all years, sans Tirupati which i've been 6 times so far.

Classic and Vintage cars only

How come you don't want to taste the famous Irani Chai? This is a must do on your Hyderabad visit.

YEAH?! Thats why I get a message from you first thing after you land in Hyd - "Buddy, where is the gujari here?". Knowing you, Brat and you must have ditched your office work and headed directly to Afsal Ganj.

Should try this when I am in Hyd next. I try and visit Hyd every year during the holy Ramadan month. I am a big fan of the 'Haleem' and 'Hyderabadi Biryani'.

In Hyd, you don't really need to go hunting. You'll spot plenty of classics in a casual drive across the city(s). If you are looking to buy classics, you should try and get Sunday's edition of 'Deccan Chronicle'. Although, I am told vehicles advertised get sold by 8AM in the morning. Is that true?

Yes Pavan, the Irani Chai with special biscuits that just should'nt be missed. There is also a paper-like sweet called 'Pootharekulu' that is a speciality in Hyd.

That is a nice idea to visit Hyd. in Ramadan.

Best Haleem at,
Pista House
Paradise
Sarvi

and the very best at Shah Ghouse beyond Charminar.

That special biscuit is Osmania Biscuit.

Pootharekulu is made out of thick starch taken from cooking rice and spread dried in the sun (to give it that wafery quality) and sprinkled with castor sugar and hand rolled.

Bon Appetit,

Bon Appetit,
Pootharekulu are in fact made on a medium to large mud pot. Basically, the pot is kept upside down on the fire, use a very thin cloth and lay it on the pot surface. Once, it is crisp, they then fill it with sugar powder and roll it up in to a small puff. If am correct, this sweet is basically famous from Vizag and surrounding areas and not Hyderabad.

In Hyderabad, try the dry fruit ladoo at PullaReddy sweets. They are amazing.

Thanks Fazal and Murali. Not sure if this is a Hyderabad speciality but definitely not available in Bangalore. So, I always ask my sister to get some when she visits Bangalore. Also you guys are forgetting the lip-smacking 'Qubani ka Meetha'. It is lunch time and this thread is making me hungry by the minute...lol.

Pavan, that VW Monogram is too big and not the 'correct' one for your VW Baywindow bus. It belongs on the front of a VW Split window. OMG, don't tell me you guys picked up a split. *Calls Pavan to confirm, but not reachable *

EDIT: The pic looks like you are standing on the front face of a Split..lol

Well Just back to good old Bengaluru, Its just so wonderful to be back at home. Yes Biryani's were just out of the world experience, no words to explain the way they prepare it

And thats not the Indian Rail logo Mr. Thats a Volkswagen logo FYI :-D

Forget qurbani ka meetha, i was more interested in the classics and vintages around, forgot almost every thing there.

Sadly your Biryani did not survive to see todays daylight, only the Bill survived,

Will detail the travelogue very shortly, lots of exhaustive photos, need to resize them, certainly about the purchase, i'll detail it with a new thread on Classics section. Better let me not turn a travelogue into a vintage and classic thread.

Day 1- 22nd June 2009:

Myself and Brat001, reach Cantonment for our Kacheguda express scheduled to depart at 7:15 pm, short while we boarded the 2A compartment, confirmation of waitlisted ticket was Rs400/- at the last moment. Hyderabad was no 620 kms away from us.

Will detail the VW part exclusively on a different thread later

Day 2: 23rd June 2009

Delayed by an hour the train reaches Kacheguda at 6:30 am. Luckily for us Carbug (Goutam) had booked a decent accomodation at a convenient location, Hotel woodbridge-Lakdi ka pul. Quite a decent one. Reach there by an autorikshaw, 5 kms we were charged Rs. 50/-.

We take some rest, freshen ourselves and have a quick complimentary breakfast of not so nice as Bengaluru's Idly and vada. 9:30 am Carbug was at the hotel in his Red Swift. We were supposed to visit some interesting places (Mostly old car adda's ) around the city.

Deep inside my cravings for the Hyderabadi Biryani was growing by the moment.

Some pics
