Cuisine: Indian
Average meal for two: US$ 4
Cuisine at Amaravathi is south Indian and north Indian, but the reason to go
there would be the delectable Andhra Pradesh food. The state has a unique tradition of spices, which are so different from regular Indian fare that an untrained Indian palate too is taken by surprise. Some dishes may just be too spicy, but on the whole, there's a lot in the menu which don't use too
much chilly. Try the egg and meat curries to go with Indian bread. There's a
fantastic dish called Chicken 65, which consists of deep-fried pieces of chicken with a secret mix of spices. The name is somewhat controversial.
Some say that the dish was invented in the year 1965, while others hold that
65 different spices go to make this golden wonder, and hence the name. The atmosphere is not fancy. But then, Amaravathi doesn't need to try too hard to bring in customers. Rather keep prices low than spend big money to do up the place.
