Capital of the landlocked Telangana state, Hyderabad has in recent years transformed itself into South India’s Silicon Valley. Perhaps some of that newfound wealth has found its way to Jersey City, because the India Square neighborhood has lately been hopping with restaurants inspired by the techie powerhouse. Over the last few years several newcomers have focused on biryani, including Paradise Biryani Pointe, Biryani Pot, and Bawarchi Biryani Corner. While this decorated rice dish at least partly inspired by Middle Eastern pilaf is common in northern India, it’s also the signature of Hyderabad, which has a unique Muslim history.

It’s FOURTH O’ JULY WEEKEND! While some governmental strides were made in the US this week, I’ve felt pretty not fantastic about America this month. As such, I will not be going with a patriotic theme (not even a Gilmore Girls theme since New England = USA, OR a Spice World theme, even though that was an option, since I’m mad at Old England, too…) to instead show my support for Canada Day, which is on Friday, and which will allow me to celebrate all of the things I love most on this planet, like Ellen Page and Justin Trudeau and …
