What you'll do

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.

Where you'll be

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.
