Recently was recently invited to ITC GARDENIA – CUBBON PAVILION,the award winning restaurant in ITC Gardenia’s “The Cuisine of the Telangana” which wants to showcase the Unique Taste.A scintillating cuisine forged for a new destiny.Cubbon pavilion is known to have hosted various unique food festivals throughout the year by showing the traditional Indian cuisine. it is the rich treasure house of exotic spices and indulge in the rustic Telangana Experience spread over a buffet.

The landscape of Telangana is primarily arid which dictates a majority use of millets, grains and seasonal greens in their traditional cuisine. The real taste of Telangana comes in grounding the spices.
The decor in Cubbon pavilion was oozing with traditional Telangana flavour.They have a rotating menu everyday and the simplicity of taste and the complex spices makes it more flavourful.We started with the veg starters
The Mirchi bhajji was just mind blowing, though spicy which is what Telangana cuisine is all about.Spice and flavours at its best.
Some of the signature dishes from Telangana are:
