Here’s a quick one, just to let you know that I am still around.. More to come.
I was able to cross off one more item from my ‘Things to do before I die’ list last week. I finally got a taste of authentic Hyderabadi Dum Biriyani!! Oh, wait, there’s more – from the restaurant most of my friends have been recommending – Paradise hotel in Secundrabad!! (And yeah, my Must-Do-Things-List is that simple – I am a man of moderate ambitions). But…
I should say I wasn’t as ecstatic as I imagined I would feel after this feat. The biriyani was no where near what I’d imagined: It was downright pathetic! And it’s not just me – I had my biriyani connoisseur friend with me, and he too didn’t like it. Maybe we expected too much, or maybe my planets weren’t aligned – I don’t know what, but I wished my dream remained a dream, ‘cos the anticipation of tasting the king of biriyanis was much better than actually tasting it.
