Be it for the wafer-thin Pesarattu, the piping hot Upma or even the fluffy Bondas, this bandi beside Sravani Sweets, proves to be a soul-saver for many bachelors and college-students in the area.

Making the evergreen idlis irresistible are its fiery compatriots. Served with multiple chutneys, a dollop of ghee and generous topping of karam podi, the Guntur idlis at Hotel Meghalaya come highly recommended.
The guilt trip
Topped with a flavourful tempering of cashew nuts, pepper corns, and ginger that are roasted in ghee, the Pongal is a preferred dish at Nethi Vindu. You can also try the upma, which is a huge crowd-favourite.
While the majority of the items sold at this tiny tiffin shop beside FSM taste good, it’s the upma that stands out. Also, consider yourself lucky if you get to devour the occasionally made onion samosas.
