Afternoon hours I was at the backside of JSW Vijayanagar Bus Terminal building in Hospet and was very hungry. Where to eat was the question though there were many restaurants in Hospet. I inquire with a local shop keeper.
He questioned: What type of food you wish to have? North Indian thali or Traditional?
I said – Traditional.
New Annapurna Andhra Bhojanalaya one of the best restaurant in Hospet was the recommendation. Thank you – said I.
Five minutes walk we saw New Annapurna Andhra Bhojanalaya on the left side of the road.
We enter. Payment at the counter and a token in return.
No seats. Few minutes we have to wait. We saw people having food served on top of Plantain leaf commonly known as banana leaf. It was our first experience. Soon we had our seat. One food serving guy requested for token. Provided.
Banana leaf was placed on top of the table and then a little water to clean it. Food was served one by one. The moment I tasted the conclusion – extraordinary. It is Andhra food and I was loving it. Unlimited it was.
And do you know how much the cost?
Rs. 50/- only and for half – Rs. 40/-.
Timings: 12 – 4 noon / 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm.
One should try traditional food. Atleast I prefer though many times I do not remember served food names or what locally it is named but what matter most is the deliciousness, variety and tradition associated with it.
Andhra food one of the favorite now-onwards for sure. Thank you guys all I can say.
