Indeed, the best part of any road trip is the delicious food joints that we find on the way. The highways are always loaded with some of the best food joints, but instead of moving to luxurious restaurants, we advise you to try the awesome taste of dhabas in India.
If you are traveling from Mumbai to Ahmedabad, you will find a number of awesome food corners that serve the most delicious collection of authentic local Indian food. Earlier dhabas were used by truck drivers to eat food during their long hour journey, but now they have become a common visiting spot for tourists as well because people love to enjoy the delicious recipes at a cheap price. While I was on my way to Palghar from mumbai I had to stop at petrol pump station to refuel my car…meanwhile I was also really hungry so i came across a dhaba which was adjacent to pump pump station. Name of dhaba was SHIMLA DHABA- This place is a specialty Dhaba that serves authentic North Indian cuisine which is known for its spicy indulgence and the rich aroma. Its various ingredients and a thick gravy preparation instantly give a soul-satisfying taste to the diners. This dhaba is situated in NH8, Nearby to Ashok petrol pump, Sativali, Vasai, Palghar dist.
This dhaba is popular for its wide range of dishes including Mughlai, Indian, Chinese and Seafood as well. I had ordered Chicken Rara Masala which was preferred by waiter itself & then followed by Dal Makhani & Butter Roti which is very common dish that I like to order at every dhaba or restaurant. I would like to tell ambience was upto mark since it was a typical dhaba with Khatiyas & pillows, it also had a AC family section on top floor where tables & long chairs sitting arrangements were made. Waiters, sweepers were quite polite to take an order & also gave us good service.
Following are the food items that I had at Shimla dhaba;
Chicken Rara Masala- Rs 320/- (enough quantity for 2-3 people)
Butter Roti- Rs 25 per pcs
Dal Makhani- Rs 160/- (easily serves 4-5 people )
Chaas (buttermilk)- Rs 70/-
I observed that different class of people were visiting this dhaba like from truck drivers to Audi car owner etc. Everyone seems to be fond of quality of food served in Shimla Dhaba. Though I asked one or two customers about review of this dhabas food & service, they were regular customers of this dhaba. Also this dhaba has collab with zomato & swiggy for quick delieveries nearby. I would really recommend everyone who’s passing by Vasai on the way to ahmedabad, NH8 to visit this shimla dhaba once.
