Was out with work during lunch time and landed at K&C, Himayat Nagar. Not the new KC, but the original K&C (overheard: it's just that the partners split and they never wanted to forego the established brand name, so they retained the same name with a few changes)
So, walked into K&C for my all time favorite snack sold at K&C "CHICKEN SALAD SNACK". Describing it in words seems to be a herculean task, given the mystic taste and aroma of Chicken Salad Snack. Its a soft bread based snack with chicken filling. This inturn is topped with a tasty salad, made with Mayonise, Onions, Capsicum, Pepper and etc. The amount of toppings can be called as Lunch in itself.
My mouth is watering as I am typing this whole thing. A snack worth the try, especially when you are on the move.
For the Veggie's, they also serve Veg Salad Snack.

This restaurant is on the fourth floor of the building that houses Ratnadeep supermarket neat Cyber Towers.
Currently have a buffet running at 199/- per person.
Plus a 10% corporate discount extended to my office folk.
This discount I am sure will be extended to all folks with id tags.
But good idea to call and check:
Soups (Veg and Non Veg) are served at the table.
You need to get everything else.
I was in a rush so did not concentrate a lot on the food.
But I kinda like this place. Food is decent and the plus points for the restaurant are location and VFM.
Of the dishes served, I recall these:
1. Salad made with beetroot and paneer.
2. Chicken chaat. Come onions, tomatoes, chicken and lots of red chilly sauce. Did not taste like chaat. Was weird but since I like the sauce, was ok by me.
3. Soup was nice.
4. Chicken cornflakes. Small strips of chicken coated with cornflakes and fried. Good.
5. Biryani was ok.
6. Christmas pudding was good.
There were the usual gravies and roti and rice and sabzi.
But I had neither the time nor interest in checking out the usual stuff.
Nice place if you are looking for a decent buffet near Cyber Towers.
Been to " Methi" next to KFC in R.P Road, Secbad for dinner yesterday.
It is a pleasantly ambienced pure vegetarian restuarant. The maitre'd turned out to be one of favorite waiters from Reshmi's. So received some unbeilevable attention, free beverage and a discount card as well
Avi..We celebrated Divya's Birthday at none other than Reshmi's last week.She insisted we go there.It was good experiance as usual and tasty food.
This time i tried Veg Shali Pulao and i was simply floored by the taste.
2 days back landed at Abhiruchi,Sec'bad with Tirthankar for an Andhra Thali and ejoyed the Podis (Dal Powders).I wish they improved the ambience a little.
There's been a lot of munching and some more on this weekend
Saturday afternoon, visited NKM Grand, Khairtabad for some afternoon siesta of cold beverages and snacks. I absolutely loved the Chicken Banjara Kebab, it was one of the best tasted kebabs in a long time. Must try!
We also had Chicken Tikka and Apollo Fish and they too were quite good. However, Banjara Kebab took away the trophy
Saturday evening, had a small get together at home. So I got a whole lot of food parcelled from my all time favorite joint " Sagar Papaji Ka Dhaba"
Got the following :-
Chilly Fish Tandoori Chicken Ginger Chicken-2 No's Chiken Tikka Masala Mutton Biryani- 2 No's
Except Tandoori which i never became too fond of from Papaji, every other dish was a masterpiece. Same taste, awesome flavours and delicious to the core.
Total Damages : Rs.1100
Sunday ( Jan 16th)
Went to " Sholay" at Begumpet for dinner. It has a beautiful ambience and everything in decor is related to the famous movie. There is a huge tank ( which Dharmendar climbs and wants to suicide from) in the middle of the restuarant giving a authentic look to the entire decor.
The menu is quite unique, a thick hard back with lot of anecdotes related to the movie.
Chicken Kebab was a unique dish, it had minced meat ( not sure if it was lamb or chicken) but quite flavoursome and succelent. You can certainly give this a try, i am sure you wont be disappointed.
Veg Kebab was also pretty good.
Maitre'd honestly suggested that i should opt for CB instead of MB and Chicken Biryani was the best part, it was perfectly cooked and had a lot of chicken pieces and quantity was more more than enough. Along with it they served two huge bowls of Gravy and Curd.
Best part was the service. The chef came out and checked if i was happy with his preparation. And, i showered some praises on him and told him i expected some discounts for eating his stuff
Kidding, the food was good and i have already decided to pay them a visit again soon.
Last night, it was one fantastic evening. Been winning some awards, so decided to pat myself on the back along with a special occasion...LOL
So me and wifey decided its some time we did some pub-hopping, so we headed out to following places in one single night
1. Zouk, nice ambience but there was very less crowd as we went there quite early( loved the Chicken Tikka)
2. Bottle & Chimneys ( There was a live performance of DJ Jerome winner of progressive house music in Germany)
1K was cover charge and that place has become ridiculously expensive.
However, liked their mexican flavoured liquid ( however, regretted same thing was available in our next pitstop at much cheaper price). Mexican Chicken was quite delicious
I hated the music and the pricing. Though i know the owner, it didnt cross my mind to ask him for a discount.
3. Hard Rock Cafe
Going there for the first time and as Ram aptly put it, its the place to be for rock lovers. Huge place and amazing ambience and comparatively decent pricing from those rip your wallet pub runners.
We enjoyed the rest of the evening here until they finally wound up around 12:30am.
All the stuff that we ordered was delicious :-
Mashed Potatoes in some barbeque sauce
Tequina Sliced Chicken
4. Green Park Midnight Buffet
To wind up our hectic evening, we decided to head out to our old time favorite joint which i am going almost after a year.
Good food as usual and kheema pao and biryani stands out.
Buffet Price : Rs.296/head all inclusive
All in all, it was well deserved break and nice to catch back with the party scene after a few months before practically crawling back home around 2 AM.
Last nights vagabonding and throwing caution to air resulted in net reduction of contents of my wallet by almost ( Rs.5,000)
