Out of the many places, the ten destinations listed here should be on every foodie’s bucket list.

Food-lovers can almost smell the aroma of that delectable biryani (a rice preparation of South Asia), the moment they think of Hyderabad. Hyderabadi Biryani is an experience in itself. The Basmati rice (a type of aromatic rice), the spices, fried onions, the meat, saffron, and a score of other things make this dish unforgettable. The city not only offers biryani to satiate your taste buds, but also offers Haleem (a type of stew), a range of Kebabs (grilled meat), Hyderabadi Baingan (Egg Plant), Double ka Meetha (dessert made of bread pudding), Khubani ka Meetha (dessert made of dried apricots), and the list continues. There are several famous eateries that one can try out when in this city, such as Paradise, Bawarchi, Shadab Hotel, Shah Ghouse, Café Bahar, Al Zaara Matbaq Al Mandi, etc. So, do not forget to plan a trip to the City of Pearls and dig into its cuisine.

What could be better than relishing a scrumptious seafood preparation while enjoying a beach holiday? Goa provides just that and more. The Goan cuisine is a result of its Hindu origins, the Muslim rule and the Portuguese rule. Goan Prawn Curry is one of the most popular dishes in the state.
