Unbelievable Tastes – Shivaji Military Hotel

Looking for spicy biryani? One of the most popular joints for non veg, Shivaji Military Hotel needs absolutely no introduction. It is located on a first floor in a dingy building. However the hotel is quite neat and on a weekend you would be extremely lucky to get a table without waiting, even if you were the most important person on earth (or the owner of Shivaji 😀 )    I came here after a session in Ranganna Military Hotel (RMH) :).

I packed a plate of chicken biryani and chicken leg curry as the waiting time for mutton was way too long. …  This is not a typical biryani as such but almost a pullao. However the taste of it can make your craving for biryani take  a backseat. Really nicely cooked meat with flavorful rice.  It is not rich in terms of spice or color but try it out and you will thank me…  The chicken leg was made with the required heat that makes you drool even after eating… This place is famous for its mutton leg soup and mutton chops.  Recommended to be visited in the  morning (around 8 or earlier) for leg soup or in the evening. I will come back for the mutton offerings. A must visit place for non vegetarians…. Not too many choices for vegetarians. Enjoy the making of the Biryani, they dont allow everyone to enter their kitchen and I was lucky enough to be in it 🙂

  1. This actually sounds like my kind of place 🙂
    Its getting tougher and tougher to find mutton biryani with most in Kerala opting for chicken or fish, besides egg and veg(???)
