Whooper Burger King


Burger King,Miami-based fast food chain entered the Indian market by opening its first outlet in the national capital's south Delhi up-market Select Citywalk mall in Saket on Sunday.

It also plans to operate around 10-12 outlets in the country over the next three months.

The company had recently partnered with e-commerce site eBay India to provide an unique service which allowed the users to pre-order the hospitality major's super-sized 'Whopper' burger.
eBay India gave its customers an opportunity to pre-order the 'Whopper' prior to the opening of the Burger King outlet in Delhi.

The Miami-based QSR giant is best known for its five-inch diameter iconic burger- the 'Whopper' which was created in 1957.

The 'Whopper' is famous for its flame grilled patty with a unique build that has been recently converted into a signature visual identity using ingredient coloured stripes.

Opening in India the company has also tweaked its menu by launching the 'Whopper' in three new variants - vegetarian, chicken and mutton.

Hope at Chennai also we get a chance to eat the whooper burger............

Hyderabad Briyani

Hyderabad Briyani

The word Biryani came from a Persian word ‘Berya(n)’ which means fried. It is actually a mixture of Basmati Rice, Chicken, Mutton, Egg, Potato and many spices. It is a very popular dish of South Asia, specially in India. Biryani was introduced to South India when Aurangzeb invaded India. The blending of Mughlai and Telugu cuisines in the kitchens of the Nizam, rulers of the historic Hyderabad State, resulted in the creation of Hyderabadi Biryani.Hyderabadi Biryani is of two types: the Kachchi (raw) Biryani, and the Pakki (cooked) Biryani.
