People from Bangalore are well aware of Persian Terrace – the fine dine restaurant at Sheraton Brigade Gateway serving cuisine from Persia and Western Asia.

Quick Bytes: Mama Mia Italia Comes to The Street

I have been hearing a lot of good reports about Mama Mia Italia at Sainikpuri. It was good to see friends travelling all the way from Miyapur and Gachibowli to try out the wood-fired pizzas there. Somehow, the visit had been a long pending one for me and finally did not take place.

The Drive-in food court fever has finally caught up in Hyderabad, and almost every week, a new drive-in is opening its door especially in the Cyberabad area. One of the better ones is known as The Street, which also boasts of a mini football field. There are about ten restaurants here, notable among which are Wich Please, Bade Miyan and Godavari Ruchulu. Mamma Mia has also shifted their outlet from Sainikpuri to this new food court. On an invite from the owners of Mama Mia, a few bloggers attended a tasting session on a summer afternoon.
