He likes Chinese, she is a dosa loyalist and the kid threatens to raise hell if he doesn’t get his papdi chaat platter right away. Solution: foodcourts! And Hyderabad has them in plenty.
Eat Street at Necklace Road couldn’t have had a better name. Think of a popular repast (refrain from conjuring up out-of-the-box names for a while) and one or the other restaurant here is sure to have it. Idli and pav bhaji compete with biriyani and kathi roll: pizza shops and ice-cream parlours stand cheek by jowl with Chinese and Indian restaurants. An alfresco dining area, with a view of the Hussain Sagar Lake thrown in, completes the experience.
The hungry hordes at Ginger Court (Madhapur) is a sure proof of the pudding, er food. Buffet lunches (Indian, Continental, Oriental), a la carte dum pukht dishes, live kitchen at the rooftop, and a classic lounge bar will spoil you with choices. Indulge Food Court at the Cyber Pearl Building, Hi Tech City, is another place you can stop by.
While trawling through Shopper’s Stop (Begumpet), if you need to answer your tummy call hop in to Food Republic. The main restaurant offers an extensive culinary repertoire: herbal tea to chicken puffs and Dutch pastries. Mexican food can be had from Tex Mex, Oriental from Mai China, Italian from Tower of Pizza, South Indian from Madras Café, Punjabi from Asli Punjabi, and chaat and other tidbits from Desi.
Adjoining each Magna Hyper Market is the Grub Hub foodcourt (three outlets in all) in the city. South Indian, North Indian, Oriental, multicuisine buffet meals, grab any kind of grub you fancy at Grub Hub.
No more discord over food, just walk into a foodcourt and make peace!
