On to the next

Saying a bye-bye to yet another city. A very happening period of life spent here at Hyderabad. Close to two years, but the actual time spent in Hyderabad would be just about half of it. The number of weekends spent here might add up to less than 20. What i'll remember most about this city would be, my home and my tennis classes. Of all the places that i've made home over the years of staying away from home, this one felt most like it. Didn't make many friends, just one crazy roomie was enough. And the tennis classes, that will be my most favourite memory from Hyderabad.

But then the highlight of Hyderabad was also the food. And just so i don't forget any of my favourites on my visits to hydie, here:

Cafe Bahaar, Basheerbagh - The best hyderabadi biriyani i've tasted. Perfectly balanced flavour, and all the flavour and taste are seeped into the grains of rice to perfection. It is ohhh so good!!!

fusion 9, Banjara Hills Road no.1 - chocolate brownie with ice cream sizzler, and the cheesecake. Yet again, the best ones that i've ever tasted. Must have!

Ohri's, Banjara Hills Road no.12 - Lime and herb crusted fish.

Extreme Sports Bar, Banjara Hills Road no.1 - Love the place, whether i drink or not!

The Gujju guy's vada paav, paani puri and kulfi stands outside brindavan bazaar on Banjara Hills Road no. 12

Cafe D'art, Banjara Hills Road no.1

My Cafe Latte, Tirumalgherry - For my love of cafes, i hardly got a chance to visit it as much as i loved the place. And this one is so much more than just a cafe. The bombay coffee, coffee served just how i like. Never went to the one in Jubilee Hills, but that's ok, this is not my last visit to Hyderabad.

Barista on Banjara Hills Road no. 1. This specific one for the countless evenings spent here, and it is better than the usual Barista.

Little Italy - love the new one as much as i did the old one. Have never gotten over their pizza margherita, since discovering it first in Bangalore.

Universal Bakery - Mutton burger!! leave all the sophistication in the parking lot and dig into this delicious burger which fills your hands up. Lip smacking allowed!

Eat Street - How i wish every city had such an eat street by the lakeside.

Chutneys - Love the chutneys!

Ofen bakery - Love the feel of the place more than the food, but that's not to say that the food isn't good.

And all this when i hardly spent any time exploring!
