Street food in Hyderabad is just like the city itself, grand, rich with flavours, and simply amazing. If you are in India, that too in a city hued with history and culture, you haven’t seen its best if you haven’t been to its narrow lanes, which amazingly seem to accommodate everyone and its colourful shops that are always bursting with life. With happy prices that can easily afford king-size meals, be ready for the hot, spicy, tangy, sweet, in fact, everything your taste bud has ever known when you head out to have street food in Hyderabad. Though, as the name suggests, street food joints are almost all over where there are streets but the followings are a must-try.

Pragati Gully

  • Skip your hotel breakfast and take an early morning stroll in the alleys of Sultan Bazaar. Something tickles your senses and the next second you find yourself in front of an array of mouth-watering treats, from idlis and dosas to frothing filtered coffee- this is how South Indians start the day. These spicy but light on your tummy varieties will be your morning alarm for your vacation days in Hyderabad. So, don’t blame yourself if you wake up early every morning to rush to Sultan Market.

  • Madina
    After your breakfast at Pragati Gully, if you are still yearning for more, go for the Hyderabadi biryani in one of the many food-joints in this area. Close to the Charminar and its nearby market, this place is as hectic as any Indian bazaar could be. And that’s where the magic happens.
