Beyond Biryani – A foodie’s guide to Hyderabad

Sitting at a neighborhood eatery on a rainy afternoon, I overheard three people on adjoining table, discussing what they will cook for dinner tonight. They had just ordered a plate of Chicken 65, onion Samosas, Gheepodi dosa and four cups of filter coffee. For a laid back city, Hyderabad takes its food quite seriously. Famous for its Biryani, which is undoubtedly the best I’ve ever had in India, the city has much more to offer when it comes to food.
