Hyderabad Haleem Review
I have now tasted the Haleem at all the popular outlets in Hyderabad which I had mentioned in my earlier post, except Bawarchi of course but including Shadaab and Paradise (which I missed in the previous post). Nothing much has changed in terms of taste but the quantity at some outlets leaves a lot to be desired. Let me go one by one:
Bahar: Has maintained the spicy taste and quantity. Free cool drink goes well too. Further, it was the only Haleem joint to be open on Ganesh Visarjan day, so a big Thumbs Up to Bahar.
Garden: Spicy as expected and good quantity too although the thickness seems to have gone down. But the taste more than makes up for it.
Pista House: No change. I guess both the recipe and the cook have not changed one bit; good quantity too!
Hy-line: A little disappointing on both quantity and taste fronts. Their used to be a time when Hy-line was my favourite. Not anymore.
Niagara (Chaderghat): In line with Pista House, no change whatsoever in taste and quantity. Remained closed on Ganesh Visarjan day though.
Shadaab: One plate and I was full! This was easily the thickest of them all and with the right amount of spice too.
Paradise: Biggest disappointment of the year! It was bland! Wouldn’t recommend it to any one.
