STOP, EAT AND REPEAT!
As Peter Hagerty rightly wrote that “Life is Journey and if you fall in love with journey, then you would be in love forever”.
Team HiWay has specially curated the various stopovers on our favorite route between Gurgaon and Chandigarh, via New Delhi. Popularly referred to as the FOOD HIGHWAY, NH1 promises an experience of a lot of diverse appetizing and savory options with tons of restaurants on the NH1.
NH1 is the one of the oldest and longest running highways of India. It starts from New Delhi and ends in the town of Atari in Punjab. In medieval times it was the part of famous Grand Trunk Road built by Sher Shah Suri. The total length of the road is 456km. It is the shortest route between Delhi and Lahore via Wagah border. The strip from Amritsar to Jalandhar is four-lane and from Jalandhar to Delhi, it is six lane. In Delhi it is called the Ring Road and is eight-lane road here. HiWay is here to take you on a delightful culinary experience that you would fall in love with.
Let’s explore it
Murthal, a small village close to Sonepat and about 60 odd km away from Delhi, is the first stop on our gluttonous journey along NH 1. Once a cluster of small dhabas catering to truckers, is now a popular, leisure “long drive” destination from Delhi that is precious to every parantha lover. Sukhdev Dhaba on the NH1 happens to be the most crowded and rightly hyped dhabas on the route. Aloo, aloo-pyaaz, gobhi, paneer and mix paranthas with dollops of white butter are the biggest draws and most ordered items on the menu. Wash it all down with a big glass of lassi or a sweet-milky tea.
A definite must visit for all travelers on NH1 is the Punjabi-themed, village-styled restaurant aptly named, Haveli situated at the Panipat crossing and at about 140 km lies. Right from its palace like entrance down to the décor, sitting arrangement, shops selling ethnic ware, traditionally dressed staff to the last detailing of the thalis your food is served in. This is THE GO TO place for a good hearty Punjabi meal on the highway. Enjoy a delicious pure vegetarian meal with paranthas, dal makhni, puri chhole, lassi and jalebi finding a special holler in the menu.
This is another stopover most favored by travelers travelling with family or people with distinct food choices. With options of multiple cuisines, Neelkanth also provides an option of eating from namely food chains such as Subway and Sagar Ratna and many more.
A masterpiece of art and design spread over 12.5 acres of land, it is a one-stop destination for fun, food and entertainment. Chokhi Dhani village brings to life, a colorful Rajasthani heritage that leaves you awestruck with all the attractions and elements of ethnic culture and tradition. The dining hall – Sangri is renowned for the mouth watering and typical Rajasthani food, served to you on a leaf platter in the tradition of Manuhaar. Your taste buds will remember this treat for a long time, while the warmth of service will stay in your heart forever. Be it dal bati and churma or missi roti , one always ends up licking his fingers.
