Delicious Dhabas on NH1

Most people love road trips, and meals at dhabas or a fancy restaurant makes the road trip even more desirable. After all, Its the journey that matters, not the destination.


I was on a trip to Himachal Pradesh last week. NH1 (National Highway 1) is home to many great eateries for foodies to hog on and I managed to stop by two of them and one Parantha Hub at Barog, Himachal Pradesh.
Haveli, Karnal It is about 140km drive from Murthal, crossing Panipat. It is a punjabi themed restaurant built with view of a village, with the traditional cot, a truck embedded indoors to traditionally dressed staff. Even the menus were in the shape of hand fans. Chach was the traditional thirst quencher. Salty, light and refreshing. Their MiniMeal is like a complete delicious meal. It contained Rice, Kadhi, Papad, Pudina Chutney and a sweet dish (1 pc Gulab Jamun). They have 2-3 variants of mini meal, in which the veggie is changed (The other one had Rajma in it). Their Kadhi was one of the most delicio…

Clocktower, Gurgaon - Another Favorite!

The Clock Tower is one of the many microbreweries based out of Golf Course Road.
What separates it from the rest of the lot is its history that goes long back to a school in Nainital which goes by the name of Sherwood which was set up in 1869.

Tribhuvan Yadav took all his inspiration from his time in Sherwood College and put his heart out in The Clock Tower.
He came up with this name to symbolize all the clock towers that Nainital has!


Every corner of The Clock Tower would remind you of the good old days!
Starting from the basic structures like high ceilings, and big doors which give the exact European feels that they intend to convey, looks no less than a high end palace property.

Each wall has a good old memory waiting for you to reminisce;
Be it comics like Archies, Adventures of Tin Tin, Malgudi Days, or souvenirs from different neighboring schools like Doon School.



This place became my instant favorite when I have had a whole tour of the property,
all I hoped was that the food …

Filmy Flavours, Sector 63, Noida

We come many different kinds of restaurants, lounges, eateries ever now and then. But not all of them leave a lasting impression on our minds. We usually end up remembering the ones which have either the best food, or the best theme; In rare cases, both!
Talking about the theme based restaurants, Bollywood theme has been one of the most famous ones. Bollywood Biistro, Mumbai Matinee, Box Office Cafe are some of the famous names. One such understated place is Filmy Flavours in Sector 63, Noida! There is something about this place which makes it a better bollywood themed restaurant.


The minute you enter the place, you see stories related to various movies and characters, from the early 80s to the year 2015. Cutouts from famous movies and iconic roles like, three bums from 3 Idiots, Krishh, DDLJ; sitting is divided into booths the walls of which are also covered with Facts about actors/actresses, installations and props, and even the names of dishes are bollywoody!

Once I was done admiring th…

North Indian Starboy: Pind Balluchi

Each time I crave for some North Indian delicacies, I look out for traditional places which prioritize authenticity over western influence! One such place which never fails to amaze me is Pind Balluchi.

There has been no looking back for them since they first started. It is the shining star, endowed with many enviable awards and visited by whom not in the country!
The desi interiors at all the Pind Balluchi outlets across the country have an earthy charm to it. Some of them have been so constructed to give a village courtyard look with a huge truck, banyan trees, and such other things. To compliment the ambience, appropriate cutlery has also been used. One such outlet which gives such a traditional feel is in Vaishali. Newly opened in a mall in Vaishali, I looked forward to a wonderful time!


The minute I spotted the outlet from across the food court, every thought mentioned above was justified. The entrance had this huge door like the ones in Palaces, with rustic feels to it. They ha…
