Hyperlocal is a vibrant chain back in the capital, but after a successful stint there, they are finally here in the city of Nizams. Delhi is well known for its plethora of chats ranging from aloo chaat, Tikki chaat to Sev Puri, Bhel Puri. There’s a never-ending list to the number of tasty dishes ‘Dilli’ offers. But, that’s not the case in Hyderabad, we don’t have such a range. So, when a big chain like Hyper Local takes up the responsibility to introduce street food in Hyderabad, I couldn’t keep myself calm.
Hyperlocal offers you the full package of entertainment with delicious food on its side. The place is lit and has got plush seats for you to sit down; to chill for the day. For me, the ambiance was electrifying and immediately I was on my toes. We were invited for a tasting session and after a brief introduction, chef Joseph Gomes, took charge to show his expertise and I must say, it was impressive.
We started off with appetizers. The first one was Shahi Paneer Tikka gave an excellent start to the session. It was a marvelous piece of art crafted with passion and packed with flavors. Then came the Dilli masoor -Aloo Tikki. It was just the perfect blend of spices and taste. It was just the right balance of sweet- sour-tangy and hits your brain.
Even the Chicken Tikka and Fish Tikka were good too. But I had expected some fusion twist to the treats. The Veg Galouti Kebab was fantastic, and I don’t have enough words to describe this bomb dish. Though there was the other non-veg variant, for me, it was the veg galouti kabab, which won the race. As we went on, we decided to order Khattar kachori, but it was a little disappointing, to be frank.
The next was the main course. I was expecting some incredible fusion elements in every dish, but merely, they had curries to offer. From Dal Makhani to Martaban ka Chicken and mutton curry with some hot khulchas, was satisfying. The veg mirch kheema was another thing I wasn’t expecting and turned out to be good too. And after all, there has to be some Chole Batura. Hyperlocal added a twist to it as they added grated panner to the dish. It is an incredible dish, give it a try
For the desserts, we had Kulfi Falooda and Baked Jamun. Gulab Jamun was excellent, and a must try for sure. Kulfi Falooda is everybody’s favorite and had an immense creaminess to it. The falooda also added texture to it and took it to another dimension altogether.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and its must visit. Go there if you are craving to gobble up some Dilli chaat in Hyderabad.
