From Mumbai’s irresistible chaats to Hyderabad’s iconic biryani: Indian cities shine in global culinary rankings

Local cuisine serves as a delightful narrator, softly recounting the intricate tale of a city’s past, culture, and character. Every dish encapsulates the essence of regional customs, showcasing distinct flavours and a culinary legacy that has matured through the ages. Whether savoured at roadside vendors or renowned establishments, the local food panorama unveils the communal recollections, rejoicing in shared moments and the amalgamation of varied influences. The selection of ingredients frequently mirrors the area’s agricultural practices, climate, and trade history.

Whether it’s a comforting bowl of soup, a tempting street snack, or a distinctive dessert, regional cuisine captures the very spirit of a city. Through the culinary craft, both locals and visitors embark on a tasteful journey, discovering the stories of a city’s history, embracing its present, and relishing the unique essence that distinguishes it in the global culinary tapestry.
