Up for an Adventure? An adventure with Biriyani? If yes then make your way to Shivajinagar. There is a place called Akhada, a wrestling pit largely famous for its Mutton Biriyani served only on Fridays. Let us tell you a fact that you may have to wrestle your way to eat this Biriyani. Definitely, it’s not easy but it is worth your visit, at least once if you are an ardent meat lover. So, come let us know more about Akhada and Gardi Ustad Pehlwan Kale Bhai Biriyani on today’s read.
A Century-Old Place Famous for Mutton Biriyani
The reason for this place to go popular is its unusual kind of ambiance. It is not at all a comfortable place to dine but the charm it carries has a desiyath to it. As far as the seating arrangement is considered, they have short-legged benches which look too basic. When in rush, you may have to sit on wrestling pit with blankets spread. Basically, it is rough and raw giving you a strange kind of vintage experience.
Limited Menu and Pocket-Friendly
Akhada is all about Fridays. We suggest you to reach before 12:30 to avoid the crowd. People come from places and the craze is unbelievable. So, when you are here, Mutton Biriyani is a must. It will be well-cooked on wood-fire giving an off-beat taste to it. On the other hand, you should not miss their pan-fried mutton chops and mutton cutlet. You can also try Kofta and Fish. Especially, fish which looks super-thin and wide giving an amazing feel while chowing down.
We don’t like to exaggerate on food but you can definitely come here for a different kind of experience. It is pocket-friendly and so you should not mind to give it a try.
Please note that Biriyani is served only Fridays at 1 PM. We recommend you to take your own water bottles if you are hygiene concerned.
Where: 157, Shivaji Road, Swamy Shivanandapuram, Shivajinagar, Bengaluru.
