Also, many bike rentals can be found around the corner for the adventurers among you; in case you plan a short trip with your friends around the city.

For the foodies among you, let’s move on to the next level
OMR Food Street: A Paradise for the Foodies!
Take a right on the highway, walk for half a kilometer, and you’ll be at OMR Food Street. You’ll find Domino’s and KFC on the other side of the road, but the food street is what pulls people to this place.
There is Golconda’s- The perfect blend of Northern cuisine and Southern Vibes!
Or if you’re looking for lunch, then a cheesy burger cooked to your order, freshly baked pastries and delicious pasta is all you need to survive! Places like Meat n Eat, Signal Tod Cafe provide your taste buds with explosions of delicacies.
OMR urges on the foody inside you to move on to the next bite, the next one, and the next one. Food here is delicious, and the choices are inexplorable. However, if you prefer quantity together with taste, OMR isn’t somewhere you should look to.
The first year in your college life is the most free. Step out of your comfort zone, explore what lies beyond lines of sight, and venture out into the wide unknown.
