Talk About Local Restaurants
Hyderabadi cuisine encompasses much more than the iconic biryani, from breweries to distinct seaside cuisine. For travelers and locals alike, here is a comprehensive guide to everything the city offers in terms of South Indian Restaurants.
This multi-location restaurant aims to highlight the best of Telangana, Andhra, and Rayalseema cuisine. It's well known for its vegetarian and non-vegetarian thali options among Indian restaurants. If you only have time for one, we recommend the Raj Bhojanam thali (only available on the weekend). If you're in Hyderabad during the week, the real Telugu Buffet, which is exclusively accessible at the Jubilee Hills location, is worth checking out.
At Ulavacharu, the pièce de résistance is authentic Andhra coastal cuisine; don't fall for the biryani. Instead, order the Bamboo Chicken and the Raju Gari Kodi Pulao, Ulavacaharu's signature rice dish. The menu will most likely perplex you, so ask for assistance, especially if this is your first visit to this popular eatery. It is best than any just a bar and restaurant.
Shah Ghouse's mutton biryani is widely regarded as one of the city's top ten biryanis. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner biryani are served at this local favorite, which opens early. Shah Ghouse's Double ka Meetha and Haleem are also highly recommended. You would forget those regular Chinese restaurants and fast-food restaurants.
Cafe Bahar is your best bet for quintessentially Hyderabadi cuisine. This Irani cafe outgrew its premises and is now a full-fledged restaurant, serving Osmania biscuits, Qurbani ka Meetha, Irani Chai, and, of course, the legendary Dum Biryani. It opens at 4 a.m. and stays open until midnight, serving hungry customers.
Adaa, Taj Falaknuma:
Locals say that a simple trip to Falaknuma will make you feel like a nizam because the palace was converted into a Taj property. Locals remind out that this is the same residence where Salman Khan's sister Arpita married.
Make your way to Adaa for some authentic Hyderabadi biryani, Haleem, and the chef's tasting plate of desserts if you've come for the food rather than the background. This is the best among the non-veg restaurants.
Conçu in the upscale Jubilee Hills fills the hole in Hyderabad's cuisine scene with exquisite stacked cakes, macarons, and eclairs. Their Hot Chocolate is delicious, and it's the ideal place to stop after dinner on your way home. This will let you tell bye to the foreign cuisine restaurants like Mexican restaurants and Italian restaurants.
Hyderabadi food is recognized for various classic Indian desserts, but the Jouzi Halwa at Hameedi takes the cake (or mithai, in this case). The confection has a long history, and it was visited by Nizam Mir Osman Ali Khan Asaf Jah VII, who was so pleased with the halwa he was served that he named the store after his close relative, King Hameed of Turkey. Hameedi sells two types of Jouzi, one with more ghee and saffron for Rs 500 per kilogram and the other with more ghee and saffron for Rs 700 per kilogram, both made from oat milk, and it takes almost 16 hours to create. Other classic Hyderabadi sweets available in Hameedi are Ashrafi and Badam Halwa. This is one of those restaurants that deliver so that you can savor the taste from your place anytime.
These are some of the best and local restaurants. I hope you enjoy your stay here and get to taste all these popular cuisines.
