Best Food Items

Rushikonda Maggi stood out as the most recommended food item to try. A spicy version of the classic Maggi noodles, this local favourite is perfect if you’re looking for a quick snack on the go. If you’re strolling along the beach, muri mixture stalls are a common sight. This mix of puffed rice tossed with spices is one of the most popular snacks in the city. When it comes to biryani, the beach city has plenty of choices and Alpha’s Dum Biryani is beyond flavourful. Missing out on street food ranging from momos to bajjis is a sin, say the local foodies.

Best Restaurants

Amongst the most recommended restaurants, Raju Gaari Dhaba, Zamindari, Kamat, and Deepak Punjabi Dhaba took the top place. Sahithi Gopalsetty, a GITAM student, opined Sam’s Griddle is the best option if you’re looking for continental food. Eaters Stop, Daspalla, Somaa, and Godavari Kitchen have also found their names among the most-chosen eateries.

Other restaurants specialising in seafood include Invitation 365, Iron Hill, Athidhi Devo Bhava, Shore Front, Zamindari, D Cabana, and Rushi Valley.
