Hyderabad: In a month’s time, visitors to Salar Jung Museum could well be enjoying Telangana cuisine in a brand new swanky restaurant that is coming up in a 2,200 sft space at the historic museum just beside the ticket counter inside the campus.
Speaking to The Hans India, Salar Jung Museum director A Nagender Reddy said, “Tourists need not go anywhere else to savour Telangana cuisine. From biryani to typical Telangana food that includes rotis made from millets, such as jonna rotte, mutton curry, variants of vegetarian and non-vegetarian items made with puntikura would be available under one roof.”
The restaurant is housed in the first floor of the three-storied building constructed at a cost of Rs 80 lakh. The second floor would be thrown open for art shows which is also built in 2,200 sft. The flooring work is in the final stages and interiors for the restaurant are going on at brisk pace, said Nagender Reddy.
The food though would not be prepared at the restaurant but we would ensure that quality is maintained, said a senior official of Salar Jung Museum. The food would be provided by a vendor.
The decision to start the restaurant that would provide Telangana food came to the authorities when a large number of tourists complained that they would prefer to have it at the museum than travel to other parts of the city.
A senior official said that with the clock room with a capacity of 600 at the ground floor, visitors need not carry their luggage to the restaurant on the first floor.
A large number of tourists from West Bengal, Maharashtra and Karnataka come to the museum and wish for bread-based dishes with Tandoori, Mughlai and typical Hyderabadi cuisine.
There is also provision for two souvenir shops in the building and the museum authorities would let it out only for vendors who sell Telangana handicrafts.
