I have been on the NH1 many times and to be honest it is the best highway to travel on simply because of the vast variety of food available from the restaurants and dhabas. With the highway leading to many destinations, the number of restaurants and dhabas have increased and the oldest dhabas still remain and not to mention are the best in taste too. Here is my small guide for the best places to eat on NH1. Gulshan Da Dhaba First on the list is Gulshan Da Dhaba, which serves the most amazing dal and mixed sabji which is available after the breakfast hours. The roti which is served with the dishes is a tandoori roti covered in yellow butter which makes the roti soft and tasty. After having a meal at Gulshan's is important have a cup of tea or should I say a glass of tea, the taste of the tea is something that cannot be made at home, I don't know what they put in it, but it helps you digest your food and makes you feel relaxed. Sukhdev Sukhdev dhaba is the most famous dhaba on NH1, and whenever you go past the place at any hour of the day the place will be filled with customers, which you can tell by the car park is full. Sukhdev dhaba serves the best pranthas which are tandoori paranthas. The sound of tandoori parantha may not sound good but with the good amount of butter put on, it makes it's delightful, they serve packed curd and achaar with their paranthas. Another good dish of Sukhdev's is the dal makhani, which should not be missed. This is one dhaba on NH1 which serves the most variety of food, from chaats, jelelbi's, Chinese to Indian meals. Zamidara da Dhaba Zamidara da Dhaba is located between Ludhiana and Doraha, and again this dhaba is a place where you must stop at to have their dal makhani and shahi paneer. The dhaba offers free lassi with their meals which is another of their specialty items. Haveli (Jalandhar and Murthal) Haveli is located in Jalandhar on NH1 and their newest branch was opened in Murthal. You would see a lot of Haveli outlets on the NH1, but the original one is the one which has the large H sign, something similar to the 'M' McDonalds sign. When visiting Haveli the best dish to go for is their thali, which provides a portion of dal, sabji, shahi paneer, rice, dahi bhalla,gulab jamun, roti and salad (in winters saag is also served in the thali).
