HYDERABAD: If you think that Ramzan is the only time you can step out after 12 am and soak your self in the festive mood, bright lights and buzz while satiating your food cravings, then you are wrong. Hyderabad city has something for night owls throughout the year. Pratima Shantaveeresh lists places you should visit

Paya with Chai at Nayaab Hotel

After the dosa at Ram ki Bandi, you can head further to Old City and make a stop at Nayaab Hotel. Starting as early as 4 am, this place is the right start to the day. On the calm streets, you can relish paya with authentic Irani chai. After savouring the dish, stay back and see how the day unfolds for newspaper hawkers as they prepare to distribute newspapers around the city. You can also take a good look at the mighty  Charminar, minus the noise of vehicles, hawkers and people.

Dosa at Ram Ki Bandi

The city cannot stop talking about this bandi. If you have a night out with friends and want to head out and eat something as early as 3 am then drive to Nampally. The aroma of finely made dosas will push you to run and grab and bite.  Seven years since it started, it is one of the first late night/early morning eateries .

Tala huwa gosht at Prince Hotel

Non-veg lovers are spoilt with choice in the city. One of the many popular places you can visit is Prince Hotel in Mehdipatnam. At 2 am, you can bite into sumptuous tala huwa gosht – a simple meat preparation with beef, onion and basic flavours. The dish that originated in Hyderabad will make your food trail a memory.

Midnight biryani

What’s Hyderabad without biryani and having a spoon of highly spiced Hyderabadi biryani at 1 am is an experience in itself. Hotel Green Park at Greenlands and Golconda hotel at Masab Tank will welcome you with a bowl of delicious and authentic prepared biryani. Relish it with an accompaniment of your choice.

Bread omelette at Secunderabad Station

Egg and bread make a brilliant combination. The taste gets only better at the many small outlets near Secunderabad station. 1am is the perfect time as they start making it.  If you want to relax after a long day at work, the mere sight of it will make you drool. Order a cuppa chai and you will sleep, satisfied like a baby.
