Our first day in Hyderabad, India started off with an uber ride from our apartment in Banjara Hills to Necklace road. We ended up getting off at the wrong place so we hopped on an autorickshaw that brought us nearby the ferries of Sagar Lake. Upon arriving we noticed some delicious Hyderabad street food options so we cooled off with a refreshing lime soda that featured freshly squeezed limes, salt and pepper. Next we had roasted peanuts which came wrapped inside of a folder newspaper.
We started to explore attractions in Hyderabad, India by taking a ferry across Sagar Lake to check out the Buddha Statue of Hyderabad. It was gigantic and we met so many friendly locals and tourists who wanted to take selfies with us.
Upon returning we resumed eating Indian street food by sampling two differents kinds of chats: papdi chaat and samosa chaat. Featuring chickpeas, onions, mint and tamrind chutneys they were delicious and inexpensive.
To cool off we had Kulfi which is Indian ice cream made from milk, pistachios, almonds and saffron.
To finish off the day we went to the Hindu Temple of Birla Mandir. Although we could not visit without camears we enjoyed the outside perimeter and met some friendly locals.
Overall it was an awesome afternoon of eating Indian street food and checking out top attractions in Hyderabad, India.

Hyderabadi Indian Street Food Tour + Attractions in Hyderabad, India Video Transcript:
On our first day in Hyderabad, I jumped into an Uber with David and headed over to Necklace Road to check out Sagar Lake to visit some attractions including the Big Buddha and to eat delicious street food snacks. However, we got dropped off at the wrong place, so we started off by jumping into an autorickshaw.
Alright, so we’ve got a tuk-tuk for 60 Rupees right bro? 60 rupees. Because we didn’t we kind of picked the wrong spot to get dropped off at. Yeah and now we’re going to see the Buddha statue here on Sagar Lake. The Buddha statue is a humongous statue in the middle of the lake and the only way to get there is through Lumpini Park and get a ferry from there. The boarding time is between 2 and 8 P.M.
What are we having dude to cool down?
What we have here is a guy selling lime juice. It is actually soda lime juice
We’re getting 20 peanuts here from this guy who has setup his street food stall right on it is like a bicycle stand.
You can see the fire and then he is just like his spatula and he’s moving them around and he’s putting them into like it is like a newspaper.
Basically this is a monolith statue of the Buddha. This is the biggest monolith statue of the Buddha in the world. That means they came from one piece of rock. They carved one piece of rock this entire thing.
The locals here in this city have been the friendliest of any city I’ve ever visited in India to date.
The street food tour continues. We’ve got two different items. We’ve got Papdi chaat over here and samosa chaat. We have chickpeas, onions and sev.
We’re getting Kulfi Indian ice cream to cool down.
We’re about to enter the Hillrock temple of Birla Mandir and it is quite impressive from the outside
What an afternoon. Like total randomness. We had no idea what were going to do. We just decided to come to the lake, see what we could find. It was just such a fun outing.
We’ll see you with more India travel and food content soon. Ciao guys. Peace.
This is part of our Travel in India video series showcasing Indian food, Indian culture and Indian cuisine.
