Dhabas on Chandigarh Delhi highway
A guide the the best dhabas on NH-1 between these two prime Indian Cities
The Delhi-Chandigarh highway, one of the busiest highways, is also known as Grant Trunk Road and NH-1. The NH-1 is apparently referred to as the Foodies Highway ,probably due to the best desi food available at various dhabas throughout the highway.
Here is a list of best food providers where you can halt to stretch and relax while driving through the highway.
1. Amrik Sukhdev
Less of a dhaba, it is a tall, air-conditioned and well-maintained the restaurant. Undoubtedly, this place can be designated as the paradise of taste and; the all time rush with parking full, justify this title. It serves the travellers with sumptuous Indian as well as Chinese food, their speciality being the Amritsari kulcha and range of parathas topped with white butter. The food is lip smacking and the taste is unbeatable.

3. Neelkanth Dhaba
The tagline of this dhaba says, khaoge te rakhoge yaad meaning- have food here and youll remember it forever. The slogan is apt for this place as it offers the finest food with a perfect blend of spices and flavours. The ambience is also good with multiple sections, and adjoining to it are the branded food courts like Subway and Barista.
4. Pal Dhaba
It is one of the oldest serving dhabas on NH-1. The food it serves is tasty and has butter floating on top. The ambience is that of the typical roadside dhabas and the staff is loveable offering quick services.

6. Gulshan Dhaba
It is a small take away food joint located at Murthal. The hot selling of this joint are the yummy stuffed parathas. There is no seating so not a place for those seeking rest but yes if youre looking for something to serve your starving belly then this is the place! There is a good variety of stuffings to choose from, the gobi parathas are the best.
