I am one of those Indians who absolutely adores good spicy food. And hence when I was recently in the Banjara Hills area of Hyderabad, I looked up Zomato for food that was different than the iconic Hyderabadi Biriyani. And that is when I came across the Kritunga Restaurant that serves Rayalseema cuisine. The word that piqued my interest was spicy. Since I was in Andhra Pradesh/Telangana, I wanted to indulge in some of the local spicy food. The restaurant mainly serves non-vegetarian food, but I did find quite a few vegetarian dishes on the menu and hence decided to try it out.
The restaurant has a traditional look n feel, is comfortable and is unbelievably quick with food. I was told that Jawar Roti along with Gutti Vankaya (Brinjal) is one of their vegetarian specialties and hence decided to try it out. Their other specialties include Kakara Vepudu (guard), Sajja Roti, Raggi Muddha (Sankati), Bhendi Masala, Natukodi Fry, Gongura Mutton, Kamju Roast, Head Curry and their Biriyanis. As you can see, most of their menu is non-vegetarian, but if you don’t mind eating vegetarian food in a meat-serving environment, then I would definitely recommend this place.
My Gutti Vankaya and Jawar Roti was possibly one of the spiciest dishes I have consumed in recent times, but unbelievably tasty. The combination was great and the spicy-ness was offset by a cold glass of butter milk. Meat lovers will adore this place. Adventurous vegetarians can also give this place a try for some different and local Rayalseema Food. The best part is that they are incredibly light on the wallet.
