Even as COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow, people in Bengaluru are braving all fears to queue up every morning for biryani outside a famous restaurant in Hoskote. The rush is such that the number of buyers for biryani has returned to pre-coronavirus times. The serpentine queues at 'Anand Dum Biryani' in Hoskote area of the city were witnessed soon after the coronavirus lockdown restrictions were raised

"I came here at 4 am but got my order at 6:30 am since there's a long queue for biryani. The food is too delicious, it's worth the wait," a customer told ANI.

Another customer said, "I stood in the queue for almost two hours as there many people waiting for their orders. It is my first time here but I have heard a lot about the biryani prepared here. It is all over social media and many reputed food bloggers have validated this place."

"We opened this stall around 22 years ago. No preservatives are put in our biryani. We serve more than a thousand kilograms of biryani in one day," the owner of the biryani shop told the news agency.

Even as the eatery is no stranger to a huge rush of people, a video recently uploaded on YouTube documenting biryani and love for it has helped to give the business a new boost in the past month, the owner says. The eatery earlier also served idlis and chitranna,but the focus later completely shifted to biryani after it's craze took over.
