Hyderabadi Indian Street Food Tour + Attractions in Hyderabad, India

Hyderabadi Indian Street Food Tour + Attractions in Hyderabad, India

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. Oh wow. Oh, soda. Soda. Oh wow, look at it frothing dude. Woah. That looks so refreshing man. Thank you, sir. Thank you. So what are we having dude to cool down? Okay, so what we have here is a guy selling
lime juice. It is actually soda lime juice so what he
does is he cuts limes. These tiny ones right here. Yep. Right? Yep. He cuts like two of them puts it into the
cup then he gets water and makes it like bubble. Yeah. So it is like soda water. It is a soda machine there. I don’t even know that is crazy how it works. It is crazy and then we have it. Soda water and just like some black pepper
and maybe some salt in here as well. Yeah so let’s try it, man. Let’s try it. Oh what do you think? Salty. Peppery. Very soda. Yeah, I think it is good for like replenishing
your electrolytes when you’ve been sweating out in the sun. That is a perfect yeah. Perfect explanation. It is almost like a natural sports drink. Do you know what I mean? I forgot to mention that it is 10 Rupees each
so it is quite cheap. Anyways we’ve got
a ferry to catch. So we’re getting 20 peanuts here from this
guy who has setup his street food stall right on it is like a bicycle stand. Look at all of the peanuts he has over here. And then he is cooking them up right before
our eyes. It is fascinating. Look at that. 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. In a newspaper wrapper. Alright, can’t wait to try these roasted peanuts
man. The guy prepared them right in front of us. Really nice dude. For a pack for 20, we paid 20 Rupees so 1
Rupee per peanut. Wow, I get three of them in one shell. I actually think it is way more than 20 in
there. Mmmm. They are really good. They haven’t been salted so they just taste
like normal natural peanuts and it is really delicious. It is like having them cooked a bit on the
outside just makes them a little warmer. It is good stuff. Nice to meet you? What is your name? Akrad. And what do you do? Are you a student? No no I’m a teacher. Oh, you’re a teacher. What do you teach? Dance. Oh, dance that is awesome. Very nice to meet you. Thank you. Enjoy India. Okay, have a nice day. Bye. So it looks like this little unassuming counter
is where you get the tickets. It is pretty small. There wasn’t even really a line. No line. There is no real sign. Oh, there it is. It says 20 per adult. Right there. 20 per adult and 10 per child. I don’t know if there is a foreign price or
not. That would be cool if there isn’t. Okay, dude so what happened when we tried
to get in? Okay so we entered, it was 20 Rupees to enter,
reasonable. Very reasonable yeah. 25 to 30 cents whatever. Yeah. And uh as we were walking in they asked us
for our film permit and we’re like what are you talking about? And they said we have to go pay for a film
permit when we found out that it is a 1000 Rupees each. 1000! Each. Per camera. Which is really expensive and I mean we’re
here to promote the destination. We’re paying out of pocket. It is just really unfortunate they tack on
these extra charges. I mean people come in with their phones, they
come in with their cameras like they want to take pictures of the place why wouldn’t
you just why wouldn’t that be in the normal admission. Exactly. Which makes no sense to me man. Anyways okay sounds like we are whining. It is not a big deal. It is fine. It is fine at this point we are here. You know what we’re extra motivated to make
a good video and get lots of views. We’ll recoup our costs. Hahaha. And the boat ride involves a fee too. 55 Rupees. Alright everyone is wearing a life jacket
on here. I don’t know if there is any. Hello! Hi! Hi guys! Hi! How are you? Fine thanks. Grabbing my life jacket. Everyone on the boat is wearing one so we
don’t want to be the naughty ones. Got one for you got one for me. Okay so 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. That is incredible. It is huge and as you can see on the sides
yeah they have these like carvings of more Buddhas. These are the stories from Jakar tales. Oh okay, the stories those tell the period
of Buddha and after Buddha. Okay. These stories are known as Jakar tales. He is explaining about the life of Buddha. It is very fascinating. And the carvings are very detailed. Yeah. If you are going to visit Ajar you’ll find
a lot of things. You find that as well. Okay. Wow. That is really interesting. Thank you for explaining. Thank you. So dude what did you think of that experience? Man, I loved it. The Buddha is beautiful. I definitely suggest coming in the morning
because the sun was in the wrong spot. Yeah. We took so many selfies. Actually, we didn’t do, we didn’t get that
much of a chance to see the Buddha. We just kind of walked around it and we were
taking selfies the rest of the time. It was a lot of fun. People are super friendly here. Now I know what a celebrity feels like. Hahaha. So the locals here in this city have been
the friendliest of any city I’ve ever visited in India to date. Yeah, for sure. For you too? Yeah. I think it is something about the South. The South is very diverse in that kind of
sense. Yeah. Very open. The warmth you know. Warmth. I think it is also a little bit underrated
for tourism too. Yeah. And that might be part o the reason. I’ll tell you guys before coming to India
earlier this year I didn’t even know where Hyderabad was. So now we are here enjoying it. Awesome. Man, that is crazy. That is what travel is all about man. Can we get Papdi Chaat and Samosa Chaat? Yes, Papdi Chaat, Samosa Chaat, Nev Puri,
Pani Puri. Pav Baji. I’ll get one Papdi Chaat. Papdi Chaat. One Samosa Chaat. One Samosa Chaat. 120. Oh that looks delicious. What are you having Sir? Yes. Thank you. Is that Pani Puri? Yes, pani puri. Pani Puri. Very delicious. You taste it. I really like it. Yeah. Here it is. Pani Puri. And this one is the samosa chaat. Just loading it up. Look at that. Have the samosas already been dropped down? Yeah. I didn’t even see that. Samosa Chaat. Samosa Chaat. Alright, so the street food tour continues. We’ve got two different items. We’ve got Papdi chaat over here and samosa
chaat. And they are basically the same. The only difference is that this has samosa
added to it. So if you look down here we have different
ingredients. We have chickpeas, we have onions. I keep forgetting what that crunchy thing
is? What is that called? What is it called again? Sev. Sev. We’ve been told like three times. Sev. Sev. Now time to try it. Mmmm. Oh, that is good man. Wow. Spicy. Refreshing with the onions. Lots of flavors. I like the crunch of the Sev. Which I now remember. Okay, time to try the one with the samosa. So what happened is that these aren’t big
samosas like what you are probably used to seeing. It has just been chopped up. Here you can see the samosa piece. So I’m going to try that. Mmmm. Oh yeah. I like the one with the samosa even more because
you get the potatoes and the crunchiness of the outer part of the samosa. Absolutely delicious. I love Indian street food. We’ve been eating it every day. I mean this is just a true pleasure and the
best part about this was the price. Each dish was only 60 Rupees. Less than 1 US dollar. You could make a snack or a little meal out
of this. Incredible value and yeah we’re just going
to keep eating more street food while we’re traveling in India. Alright, dude. Hahaha. Chaat. I love this. Chaat life in India. Yeah on the streets of India chaats. Chaats. They are like basically like Indian snacks. They are always full of chickpeas. And this one has some samosa chaat. Mmmm. It is good stuff huh? I love that crunch. The flavors. That mint chutney and that tamarind chutney
there. So good man. And the onions. Great. And then here is the Papdi chaat. Papdi Chaat. This one I think has like a potato inside. There are so many kinds of chaats. Do you know what I want to ask anyone watching
this and who knows? How many different chaats are there? Let us know. I mean I’ve tried like 7 already. Yeah, I know. I bet there is over 20. I mean I’m done. Anybody hungry? Hahaha. So we’re getting Kulfi. These are like prepackaged. Oh wow. Look at that. They are like popsicles huh? And how much are they? 50. 50 Rupees each. Time for Indian popsicles. These were only 50 Rupees each so really good
value. Way less than $1 US dollar. And they are called Kulfi. Look at the shape. It is kind of shaped like a triangle and the
cool thing is I’ve always been wondering what Kulfi was made of. And they’ve listed the ingredients. I’ll tell you. The first ingredient is milk. Second is almonds. Third is pistachios. And fourth is saffron which is known locally
as Kesar. Oh wow look you can see the pistachios right
there. It comes in a little wrapper. So I’m just going to unwrap that thing. Woah it is a pretty dense man. It is a lot thicker than I would have expected. Oh, it is the stick at the top. Mmmm. The first thing that comes to mind very creamy,
rich tasting and I had a bite of several nuts I think it was the almonds and the pistachios
so it is really good. I love that there are nuts in this. Mmmm. I find this even thicker and creamier than
typical ice cream so I really like it. It is actually quite filling. So to have one of these is almost like having
a true dessert. Mmmm. Good stuff. Hey! Really busy right now. It is like rush hour. 5:25 the road is absolutely packed. Look at this guys. Absolutely packed. We’re about to enter the Hillrock temple of
Birla Mandir and it is quite impressive from the outside. And I’m not sure if admission is free or if
we have to pay I’ll let you know. Unfortunately, we can’t take our cameras inside
so we’re just going to show you what it looks like from the outside perimeter. One thing I’ve got to say about coming and
visiting right now is it is beautiful because if you come at this time of year just before
six o’clock you get a really really nice sunset. We are from Amritsar. This guy is from Tamil Nadu. Oh cool. We are doing Ph.D. You guys are very smart. Hahaha. Good luck with your studies. Good luck. Thank you very much. Thank you. Nice to meet you. Wow. 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, see if we could eat street food. We found tonnes and it was just such a fun
outing. Did you enjoy it? I loved it. And with that in mind if you loved it too

  10. Best thing about this channel is Sam being so cool, polite, and nice. That's gold for any person right there! Love your humility man!

  11. In comparison to your other videos, there’s something that I feel is empty at the beginning or intermittently in this video. Maybe some background music when you guys talk will fill that up. Besides that you know I love you guys, great work.

  12. You know audrey that your copy of your is in India search kalki koechlin or gully boy cast in the first no you get the copy of yout

  13. I love your videos,a very nice couple,the faces of Samuel when eat the Pizza(quella italiana) is Incredible funny! ❤

  14. Amazingly shot. I love both David and Samuel's vlogs. Indian as well as other Asian countries. Nice presentation by Sam, a fine gentleman and down to earth person.

  15. Quite interesting vid, the thing about countries like India and some other less well-developed countries like mine is that people are quite ingenious in making/cooking things with a bare-minimum……that lime soda drink is a good example!

  16. Last but not least, I am glad that they don't have "foreign price" for attractions in India or perhaps at that particular place; honestly, "foreign price" is wrong, on some level I do get it but nonetheless it's wrong…..BTW: we have the same problem over here where foreign tourists are forced to pay more than locals to visit museums, etc….

  17. There are many kinds of chats… Papdi chat.. Dahi puri.. Pani puri.. Samosa chat.. Bhel puri.. Sev puri.. And many more..

  18. Thank you for telling the truth that hyderabad people are friendliest you have experienced. Love your volgs

  19. 1000/- Rupees for a camera is meant to fleece you – lol! White and a tourist. That's the motivation. These people haven't even begun thinking about promoting tourism. Their agenda is to fleece. Corruption at a small scale.

  20. Happy to see you'll in hyderabad …I am a hyderabadi and studying in USA…If you get a chance just try haleem,shewarma and pathar ka gosh which are authentic Hyderabad dishes…

  21. Hey Sam, which city you found the best to out of all the ones you visited in India? In which city you'd settle down here?

  22. There are at least 100+ different types of Chats. There are 10 to 15 common chats and rest of them are mixtures of these basic chats in one or other way just like permutations and combinations !

  23. It's bcz ppl do professional photoshoots like wedding shoots and all if let loose.. that's the reason they charge

  24. At night you have a wonderful laser show. To film it what they charge you. So the system works in that way unfortunately

  25. To make kulfi you have to reduce full fat milk literally by half. So if you have 2 litres it is reduced to 1litre. Then sugar is added. When it cools down the flavours are added. Then it is frozen like any ordinary ice-cream.

  26. Is there any possibility of doing collab with David again???? Missing you guys together… It's Sweat Sam and Salt David.. 😛

  27. Awesome video! Please check out my channel for similar interesting Hyderabad food videos…many thanks!

  28. Next time in hyderabad ,i will help u with information about our hyderabad,its our pleasure to see u people appreciate our country
