Biryani Blues, Gurgaon – Soul Stirring

Gurgaon seems to be buzzing with food joints which are shouting ‘Different’ from their rooftops and noise is loud enough for any food lover to notice. These are not your swanky or posh joints,  however small cozy places run by people like you and me,  people who came into the business for love of food,  or at-least that is how it seems to me.
Biryani Blues is one such outlet located in Supermart in Dlf Phase 4. A small place with nice and cozy feel to it,  they claim to serve authentic Hyderabadi and Andhra food.  I have been hearing great things about it on Eatlo as well as from my friends and finally landed at this place last night to savor some of their now very famous Biryani.

The menu looked impressive with limited dishes which ensure right amount of focus and attention to whatever there is on the menu.  It also means that they have their priorities right and are not trying to impress everyone which generally can be quite disastrous.
Having heard great things about the kheema Biryani we decided to order a portion of that,  which cost Rs. 275. With that you had an option to add half portion of a starter for Rs. 150 only. I opted for Prawn fry.

The Biryani came in the usual handi along with some mirchi ka salan,  raita and onions,  which are quite precious these days.
Now I am not an expert on Biryani,  and discussions and descriptions of the same often leave me confused,  rendering me incapable of commenting on the authenticity of the product.  That said,  whatever I had there was quite incredible.  The portion size was very generous and should easily suffice for 2 people with average appetite.  The Prawns were quite tasty as well,  I loved the way they were fried with curry patta,  the portion again being quite generous considering how expensive they generally are.

Being the glutton I am,  desserts is how I judge food joints on.  If you don’t have a good dessert then you are sending me incomplete.  Fortunately for Biryani Blues,  they do a Double ka Meetha and a Khumani ka meetha. We ordered a double ka meetha which to define very simple is normal bread –  fried and dipped in sugar syrup.  Once again I will not comment on the authenticity of it,  however for Rs. 100 it was enough to satisfy the sweet tooth of 2 of us and put a stamp of completeness on the meal.

Spent around Rs. 600 on this meal and authentic or not,  turned out to be soul food for us.  The feeling you get when you are satisfied to the core in terms of appetite, taste and desire.
I hope to visit this place again to test various other things, in the meantime if you have to drive all the way from Delhi to savor the food, do give it a shot. All for the love of food.

  1. Shashank as you have aptly mentioned in your blog.. Donno whether it is authentic or not but it is soul food for meah as well!!!! love the food from Biryani Blues !!!

  2. These are exactly how the write ups should be, easy & simple and without any vendetta as usually food blogs get into once they attain a public stand.

    The note is very well worded Shashank as it makes me as a reader wish to go try it out as well and form my own opinion. The food looks simple and straight, hope the flavors blend in right when we speak of consistency.

    thanks for sharing

  3. I stumbled upon this place while I was hunting out for lunch after a long first half in office. The blogpost talks about their non-veg options, but the Veg Biryani is also worth it. I would highly recommend it to the veggie junta. Mirch ka salan was prepared with as much fineness as they put in the biryani. The price is totally worth the quantity.
    Fabulous – in one word.

  4. If you loved the double ka meetha, you should try the khumani ka meetha… the best dessert i've had in a while after hogging huge portions.

  5. Nice post shashank. Being myself a hyderabadi often i missed the flavours of Hyderabad. but with biryaniblues that vacuum is filled now. About the post very good narrative and compelling food lovers to venture out to biryaniblues.
