Hyderabad is incomplete without talking about its food – a rich blend of royal Mughlai flavours, Nizams special, and spice-up culinary traditions of South India.
Must eat dishes in Hyderabad are:
- Hyderabadi Biryani
Most popular dish of Hyderabad is Hyderabadi Biryani. Ask anybody about their favorite dish of Hyderabad, and they will definitely tell you Hyderabadi Biryani.
Prepared in a unique style – a blending of Mughal kitchen with the style of cooking practised by the Nizams – Hyderabadi Biryani has a distinct aroma.
Biryani has many variants like Mutton Biryani, Chicken Biryani, Biryani Khaam, Biryani Zard or Zafrani or the most exotic of all Joban Malti Biryani in which mutton, partridges and quails were cooked with rice.

Must try during Ramadan…
If you are here during the month of Ramadan (Holy Month of Muslims) then you should never miss “Haleem” the best dish Hyderabad has to offer. Muslims break Ramzan fast with this perfect dish because of its high nutritional value. Nothing can quite beat the flavor, taste and consistency of the Haleem you get here. Haleem or minced meat cooked with butter and ground wheat.
Also it is a traditional opening dish during important ceremonies. So not only in Ramadan but in rest of the year also you can try Haleem.
Best places to try Haleem are Pista House (very famous specially for Haleem) near Charminar, Madina Hotel and Nayaab Hotel at Old city and Cafe 555 at Masab Tank. I get chance to eat Haleem from Cafe 555 daily, as my home and office is very close to it.

The Charminar is a signature minaret of Hyderabad . The square shaped building of granite is build upon four arches each in four different directions.
Each corner of the square structure has a meter high. It is because of these four minars the building is called Charminar. Each minar rises from a lotus-leaf base which is practically a characteristic feature of Qutub Shahi buildings.
It is the largest mosque in the world situated beside Charminar which accommodates nearly 10,000 people at one time. Mecca Masjid is so called because it is said that the bricks used to build the central arch were brought from Mecca. Though Qutb Shahis started the project it was Aurangzeb who completed it in 1694. Fifteen graceful arches; five in each of the three sides, support the roof.
