No trip to Kakinada is ever complete without eating at Subbayya Gari Hotel — a 63-year-old iconic hotel. And now, it's opening up in Hyderabad on September 20. We just cannot wait to queue up. Eating a meal here is a wonderful experience as we are served more than 20 varieties including their specialty podi (coconut/curry leaf or any spicy powder that is mixed with rice, ghee, and eaten), Kakinada Kaja (a famous Kakinada sweet).
But for the ones taking a parcel, the food is packed in a butta or basket. Yup, you heard that right. Hot rice is first stacked at the bottom and covered with banana leaves, and then, curries are packed in banana leaves too. These leaves add a delicious flavour and aroma to the food. Along with these, the dessert, chutney, dal, sambar, and curd are packed too. Making this meal even more exciting, the hotel gives us a set of banana leaves.
Can't wait to try? Line up at Subbayya Gari Hotel on its opening day. Come, say hello to us if you spot us there.
