Saturday the 11th was one crazy night for us at FoodDrifter. It was the 6th Ramzan FoodWalk during this month as part of the Ramzan FoodWalk series. The overwhelming response that we had received had us excited. Considering that this was going to be the last FoodWalk for this month we decided to go big. A whole lot of goodies and contests, games and of course innumerable food stalls planned to make the night exhilarating.
The best part of the night was having 100+ enthusiastic crowd who descended upon the Old City to be part of the FoodWalk. The FoodWalk commenced at Hotel Nayaab, opposite the Madina Building at 8 PM. Hotel Nayaab is famous for it’s delicious Kesar Chai. The subtle flavor of Saffron in the tea leaves a sweet tingling taste over your palate. The foodies also gorged on Haleem and Paya with Munshi Naan and we moved over to the next stop at Shadab. Shadab is quite famous for it’s Biryani, but it also serves some exquisite Falooda and Lassi. Haleem check two at Shadab and our FoodWalk moved to Hotel Shehraan.
Fish Fry, Apollo Fish, Boti Kebabs, Seekh Kebabs, Dahi Wada, Khajoor, Pakodas were just a few of the food that were savored as we made our way to Nimrah to relish on some Irani Chai as we soaked in the beauty of Charminar. During Ramzan, the sights and energy in Old City is at it’s peak. You have to be there to feel the goose bumps that it can give you.
Irani Chai and Osmania Biscuits are a match made in heaven when in Hyderabad but Tie Biscuits also make for a terrific accompaniment. The after it was hardcore non-vegetarian binge eating. Chicken 65, Tandoori Chicken, Pista House Haleem and lots of Hyderabadi desserts like the Qubbani ka Meetha, Dil-e-Firdous and Phirni. For the last stop of the night with the clock almost hitting 2 AM, we ended the gastronomic FoodWalk at Shah Ghouse with it’s scrumptious Biryani.
The FoodWalk was the best we have done till date because of the amazing set of people we got to meet. Eating out is all about sharing stories and enjoying conversations over food. The enthusiasm and above all the contests were a lot of fun. Special thanks to Oh So Stoned, Saffron Mantra, Lemon Tree Hotels, TinyOwl, Built2Cook and Sweet Experience, Deli 9 Bistro for the dining vouchers and gifts which made it more fun for the participants.
We shall be back with a bigger event. More interesting ones coming up on our Facebook Page.
