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

Location: Murthal

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.

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.
