Well, seems a tough one to answer but meet Elahe Hiptoola, a prominent figure in Hyderabad’s theater culture.

Elahe and Asad focus on the similarities in culture, food and other aspects of Hyderabad in this exclusive series from “Medium & Rare”, titled “I was here”.
In the first video of the two part “Hyderabad” series, it starts as a discussion about the classic food from this city like Biryani, Nihari, Mandi, Sheermaal, Osmania Biscuits and Irani Chai at the city’s well-known cultural space “Lamakaan” in Banjara Hills.
