Make A Pit Stop At These Dhabas On The Mumbai-Pune Highway
No road trip is complete without a halt at a rustic Punjabi dhaba for a fulfilling meal. Dhabas are a place where you don't care about the butter that goes into the making of hot rumali rotis, creamy butter chicken, dal makhani and many authentic delicacies. When on Mumbai-Pune highway, make a stop at these dhabas for a meal of the lifetime. We have shortlisted five picks that are not only great in service but also serve hot, piping tasty food.
Sunny Da Dhaba
Are you a fan of heavenly Punjabi food? Well, Sunny Da Dhabba is the place for you. While their paneer butter masala is a well-known favourite and a Dhaba Special too, we’d recommend you also try their chicken tikka masala. To end your already wonderful experience on a high, have their flavourful Mango lassi. It’s just what you need before you get back on the road.
Sheetal Da Dhaba
Known for their friendly staff, Sheetal Da Dhaba believes in giving you overall great experience. We know how tired we can get while travelling, that’s exactly why we recommend Sheetal Da Dhaba’s chicken biryani. With a mix of rich flavours, the biryani is a heavy dish and makes for an entire meal, even by itself. However, if you still do have some space for dessert, have some of their gajar ka halwa, which will be the perfect, sweet end to your meal.
Sidhu Punjabi Dhabba
Offering a genuine Dhaba feel with an added bonus of prompt service, Sidhu Punjabi Dhabba has a delicious vegetarian menu. While their palak paneer is a popular choice, we’d suggest you also have their special sarsoon ka saag. Also, have their jalebis and maybe you’d love them enough to even pack some for the way!
Aaswad Dhaba & Family Restaurant
With a collection of Chinese and North Indian cuisine, this is one dhaba you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Have their paneer reshmi kebab and their mutton biryani. We haven’t tried anything off their Chinese menu yet, however, if you’re looking to eat light and can do without the extra butter in your food, you might spot some options you like.
Bhajan Singh Da Dhaba
Located near the Somatane Toll Plaza, Bhajan Singh Da Dabba is a must-go for hardcore non-vegetarians. Offering an extraordinary variety of chicken and mutton dishes, this dhaba is an extremely promising place. While their starters such as the chicken achari kebab and the chicken chilly impressed us significantly, it is their main course that steals the show. Make sure you try their butter chicken and mutton rogan josh.
