In my recent travels to India and embracing its diverse culture, history and tradition one just cannot ignore the riches in taste of these deep rooted traditional people or civilisation. One can be so easily spoilt for winning and dinning at the top restaurants with all its glory and pomp of upper richer class of Indian society one cannot ignore the rich of its street food. What a memory has it been to go down to a small Farzana food shop and experience the true richness in Indian bistro. Not sure a flagship of hospitality I marvel at the sheet hospitality of their chief chef who so kindly displayed his favourite preparation. Just the sight gives the true Indian flavour which you can only experience in India and not a restaurant in East London for sure. I think its the nature of these hospitable people which brings their dishes to live.
Hyderabad has it own night life but its the riches of the tastes of the local dishes which is worth visiting. The menu started with the classic salad with corn salsa, followed by rice and tikki chaat. That flavour really tantalised the taste buds with its tangy flavours. Displayed in earth pots which gave its own unique favour to it.
The Chicken somosa with the Hyderabad chuteny coupled with chips and prawns were just emasculate. Fired prawns were just so rich in taste you can feel the sense of freshness. A nice softness not to over cooked allowed it to melt in the mouth with its flavour spilling into the nasals. A time and dish worth remembering!
