Quick Bytes: Micheal Winklemann and the New Craft Burger at Chili’s

The two outlets of Chili’s American Grill & Bar  at Hyderabad have been functional for quite some time, and the one at Banjara Hills has been my preferred destination for American and Mexican cuisine. Being a frequent visitor, I look forward to their menu changes so that I get to taste their latest items introduced in the international market.

The Trident Showcases Incredible Cuisines of India

Indian Food festivals in the city usually focus on cuisines which are already well known and popular – Goan, Punjabi, Bengali and Kashmiri to name a few. However, other states of India, as well as select regions from some states, have their own cuisines with some really outstanding dishes. I am personally a huge fan of food from Odisha and North-East which are not available in Hyderabad and have a huge repertoire of delicious recipes. Same is true for the cuisine of Malabar or that of the Kashmiri pandits.

Hyderabad has quite a few good Bengali restaurants which have made their mark in the city.
