What Makes It Awesome
Data from one of the most popular food delivery aggregators in 2018 shows that India loves its chicken biryani; it’s the one dish that Indians have ordered most (we’re not surprised). Serving Andhra-style biryani, head to Meghana’s Biriyani on Residency Road for days you want to eat wholesomely without having to burn a hole in your pocket. Strong flavours like bay leaf and saffron are what bring people back to the restaurant. If you're picky about meat, we suggest having the chicken boneless biryani. With flavoured basmati rice (mildly spiced), it is topped with boneless chicken pieces cooked perfectly. The mutton biryani is another speciality (most of our writers vote this to be the best biryani in the city).
With starters for accompaniments, be sure to have the Chicken 65 and if you like something spicier, the Chilly Chicken. They also have options like chicken tikka and tandoori. If you’re a seafood lover, try the prawn biryani. For you vegetarians, the folks here specialise in making vegetarian biryani as well. Offering versions with veggies like beans, potato and carrot, the paneer and mushroom biryani are our personal favourites. If you’re one of those vegetarians who sway towards eating egg, we highly recommend the egg biryani. All the biryanis come with sides of yellow curry (which eaten with the rice is a killer combination) and raita. Hungry after reading this article?
