In an evening walking tour lasting 3 hours, we will visit some of the best eateries serving Hyderabadi food and sample some delights and delicacies. From the local take on the famous paya to melt-in-the-mouth kebabs, from three types of chai to the famous Osmania biscuit – we will try out ten different dishes on the walk. Highlights - Paya Masala: The quintessential Hyderabadi breakfast is incomplete without a trencher of paya soaked up with the square Hyderabadi naan. This dish transforms the watery naan into a thicker masala and is eaten with a regular roti. You have to try it to believe it! - Bheja fry: The brain fry is a typical Hyderabadi accompaniment, and has tons of flavor Kebabs: We try out and face off three varieties of kebabs against each other – which will be the winner. Is it one or the other? (Hint: It’s usually all three!) - Chai: Chai is the essential drink of India. In Hyderabad, we have our own special – it’s called Irani chai. Thick, sweet and served in tiny cups, it has driven millions of arguments and friendly conversations over the years. We try out a couple more types of chai and let you decide which you prefer.
I have been sharing my city with visitors and locals alike since 2006. I take you on personalized tours tailored to meet your interests. My flagship experience is the Old Hyderabad Food Walk, where we walk in the bylanes of the 400-year-old Charminar and eat like the locals in places where we will be the only outsiders.
Small portions of food at all stops
Bottled Water and a box of juice to help if it gets too spicy
Pick-up and drop from your hotel (Add-on)
We will start off at Hotel Nayaab, joining locals for their evening snack. After a walk through their kitchens to see where the magic happens, we will proceed through the narrow streets around the Charminar and explore the food that the locals relish - kebabs, chaat, chakna, fried fish and lassi. We will also stop at the famous Nimrah Bakery to sample their excellent Irani chai and Osmania biscuits, as well as at Milan for their avocado shake.
Carry little luggage with you - you will be using both hands to eat and sometimes we will be eating street-side. We will provide you with bottled water and tissues to clean your hands.
