Hyderabadi Biryani

Hyderabadi Biryani_Spot the nest

This is available everywhere and anywhere in Hyderabad, and hence you can go and try it at any place as the basic recipe remains the same everywhere. But the best place is Cafe Bahar, Basheerbag or Shadaab old city are the best.

Bawarchi - RTC crossroads.

Dine Hill - Masab Tank, for a different experience rather than the taste.

Hyderabadi Haleem:

Introduced in Hyderabad during the Nizam rule, this Arabic dish has been localized by adding traditional spices thus evolving to the famous Hyderabadi haleem. This stew consists of lentils and meat along with pounded wheat and made into a thick paste and commonly found during the months of Ramadan.

Best is at Shah Ghouse - Tolichowki

Pista House haleem is also a good one.

Dosa_Spot the nest

One of the first late-night eateries in the city. The juicy butter dosa with the trademark coconut chutney has made sure that people visit despite his erratic timings from 3 am to 8 am.

Ram Bandi - open from 4:00 AM to 8:00 AM, opposite Karachi Bakery - the original one. It is a bit costlier compared to other dosa bandis in the old city.

Govind Bandi - old city, this one is also equally good.

Opposite High court you can get a similar kind of Dosas which costs much cheaper than the above-mentioned places.
