High Court Ki Jalebi
If you are seeking hot samosas and jalebi when you are in Old City, High Court Ki Jalebi is an answer to all your gastronomical prayers. Originally a tiny kiosk in front of the High Court, it grew to a significant size over 50 years but is still known as High Court Ki Jalebi (a name it gained because of its location. Its actual name is Jai Maajisa!). Apart from just this joint, there is a whole line-up of eateries next to each other that whip delicious samosa, kachori, jalebi, and khara.
The streets of Begum Bazaar are sure to draw you in with the aroma of chaat and pav bhaaji. Known as one of the best street food places in Hyderabad, we go here for Bread Pakodas and Raj Kachori at Sri Jodhpur Mithai Ghar. Try the ghevar at Begum Bazaar Chatri or tuck into delicious dosa.
The streets of Madhura Nagar come alive during the evenings. Want to grab manchuria at INR 20? Yup, the street food is really that inexpensive here.

Don't forget to carry cash because they don't even accept Paytm.
