Bawarchi is a name that is so synonymous with Hyderabad that it’s given rise to quite a few replicas throughout the city. But the original outlet at RTC ‘X’ Roads serves some of the most delectable Haleem during the month of Ramzan. A beautifully balanced, finely-mashed affair, it also has more than its share of the soup, making it quite rich. What stands out is the flavor that bursts through in every bite.
