Hyderabad is a hub for foodies and nothing like a season delight. We give you a list of places and dishes that one should definitely try during this season. Trust us on this, you will thank us later!
This place is the Tulip Discovery for the month and we are so glad we found it! A cosy little place situated in Kompally, one needs to head here for a long drive in the rain. A huge vintage door welcomes you; a great menu awaits you inside. If you are a Chai Lover then you should head here for the most amazing Almond Chai & Masala Chai, dip the crispy rusk and watch the greenery through the glass doors. A worthy breakfast to accompany with, our picks are the Cheese chicken omelette and the mix vegetarian chicken omelette is filling and how! If you want to spice it up a bit then the garlic bread is something that you should definitely call for. It is drizzled with cheese and chilli flakes. Chai Kahani Gets extra brownie points for its mad (in the best way) freak shakes. Their menu has pancakes, waffles, samosas & burgers too!

Give yourself a break with these hot buns, savoury or dessert that is something they leave it on you! Lotus Biscuit bun or the classic signature bun, you can choose your own set of toppings.

On point ambience and more than that the most innovative menu with a lot of fusion food, our monsoon picks are a platter full of Khowsuey, a pot meal with noodles and coconut milk and the Galli ki Nalli Nihari (chef’s special gravy). it is best known for its health benefits and is a must during this season, served with Garlic Naan and is out of the world! Mocha has a lot to offer on its menu which favours the showers and the whole environment complements it.

Jassi De Paranthe
Not having steamiong hot parathas during the monsoons is a crime! We love the Lahori Kulcha served with Dal Makhani at Jassi De Paranthe, it is a mandatory consumption!

A little hub for your little joys! This place has the best of hot chocolate and coffees. It has a huge window where you can see the rain hit while you think about life. Choco mint, a faultless blend of chocolate with mint is so refreshing for your taste buds. Feeling cold during the monsoons? Then try the Red wine Sangria Coffee which gives you all the warmth and still has such a caffeine kick even though it’s non-alcoholic. We all love Maggi, don’t we? Opt for the Spicy Maggi Panini, which is buttered between the whole wheat Panini sandwich, we have not had anything of this kind before.

Ohri’s Ruci & Idoni
A classic we could not miss out on. A special mention goes to Chef Amey for recreating the whole Ruci and Idoni menu, we got to taste the Creamy Mozzarella Fingers served with Guntur chilli mayo which is so good around this season. Hands down to the dish we are going to mention now is something which you will see us binging on the most throughout the rains: The Fiery (literally sets you on fire) Phuket Chicken, it is bits of juicy Asian flavoured crunchy fried chicken served with peanut dip! On an exceptional request, they also give you the monsoon combo: Chai served with your preferred bhajiyas, mirchi pakodas and onion rings! Wow.
