Think breakfast in South India and idly-dosa is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Hyderabad however, being the multi-cultural and diverse city that it is, offers a very different and mostly non-vegetarian array of dishes. From keema-roti to bheja fry and khichdi-khatta, traditional Hyderabadi cuisine has space for a lot more than just the famous biryani it is known for.
Breakfast is served as early as 5 am in the city, and early mornings are the best to visit hotels like Nayab, Shadab, Iqbal, etc. for the same. The area also houses Munshi Naan, which has been selling naans since 1851. We will also visit the historic Badshahi Ashurkhana, and also stop at the famous Nimrah Café (near the iconic Charminar) which is known for its Irani chai and array of biscuits.
This guided tour is free.
