Hyderabad is a massive, modern city and it was a great place to spend a few days wandering around and enjoying the good life – which, it seems, is mostly about food…
+ Coffee chains are everywhere here, which means daily lattes and even latte art.
+ My daily breakfast destination – and while the tagline is cheesy, it’s also correct.
+ Classic south Indian breaky – idly and sambar with coconut chutney.
+ In the upper-class Banjara Hills neighbourhood, I discovered a “world food” shop with a gluten-free section (hooray!).
+ The shop also had a chocolate section with tequila-filled truffles (double hooray!)
+ More coffee, with a view of the Charminar.
+ Sunset over the lake at the Taj Hotel.
+ A bright rangoli design next to lake-side benches (that were perfect for eating said tequila chocolates).
+ A rooftop dinner with gin & tonics, amazing tandoori and great company.
