Biryani will always be a favourite of foodies. For Malayalees, celebrations inevitably suggest biryani. So we decided to recommend five must-visit Biryani places in Kochi, a foodie's paradise.

1. Pandaris Biryani: You get the best beef biryani at Pandaris. They make it with long basmati rice, mildly marinated well-cooked beef and trust us when we say it is to die for! The city has two branches, and they are moderately priced.

Where: Food court, Central Square mall, Rajaji junction, MG Road, Kochi and near Hotel Regency at Kakkanad.

2. Kayees Biryani: Mutton Biryani will always have a loyal fan following and at Kayees they are high in demand. Their secret ingredient is fat that comes from vegetable stock. There are two Kayees biryani outlets in Kochi. Both eateries cater their customers with drool-worthy yet affordable biryanis.

Where: Durbar Hall road, near Ernakulam temple, Pallimukku, Kochi.

Rahmatulla hotel, Mattanchery, Kochi.

3. Barbeque Nation: Of course, you get quite a spread there. From barbeques, kebabs to a sumptuous buffet but their biryani is quite something else. And the ambience is wonderful. Though rates are slightly on the higher side but again worth the money.
