5 places to visit in Hyderabad

The 1st thing that comes to my mind when I think about Hyderabad is the scrumptious meals that the city has. Whenever in Hyderabad, I start my day by having a typical South Indian breakfast at Chutneys that includes deliciously tender idlis and crispy dosas. All of them are served with different types of tasteful chutneys. Then, while strolling around the bustling streets of the city I make sure to have dabeli that is 1 of the best street-food snacks available there. By the end of the day, I satiate my tastebuds by having the flavorous Biryani from Paradise. In short, Hyderabad is a must-visit place for all the foodies.
