Hyderabad Blues

I stayed in Hyderabad for close to a year. I loved the city from the time we landed at the Begumpet station to the day I left for Pune. It was a wonderful topsy turvy ride which I enjoyed to the fullest.

I was in this beautiful city for my first job at Satyam - then a well reputed IT giant. Apart from visiting, wide eyed, this beautiful city, I also had ample opportunities to interact with the locals and I also savoured the varied gastronomic delights that it had to offer to the fullest.

Hyderabad is the city of Nizams and is famous for its food that has a Nizami touch added to it. The Hyderabadi Biryani is undoubtedly the most famous of all Hyderabadi dishes. The famous Nizami food on offer throughout Hyderabad is usually non vegetarian fare and for a vegetarian, that too for a vegetarian who doesn't eat a lot of rice, it was very tough for me to find food to tingle my taste buds in the right spots.

This led to an exploration of Hyderabad all over the city and this blog is a consequence of that. I have eaten in almost every good restaurant of Hyderabad and I will lovingly describe in my coming posts where one can find the best food for the price.

My journey around Hyderabad started with Uttarayan and ended with Diwali. The Hyderabad Blues are chronicled henceforth.
