Tempting Highway Food at ‘NH22 Dhaba’
NH22 Dhaba is on the highway between Kalka and Dharampur (in Himachal Pradesh). The seating is simple and the valley can be seen on the back drop. The Dhaba is a combination between a roadside dhaba and a restaurant. The place is clean and the staff members are warm.
We ordered a fresh lime soda. The fresh lime soda was fresh as the name suggests and it was really refreshing during our journey. We ordered one more at the end.
We then ordered Veg Jalfrezi, Khadhi Panner and Dal Tadka. The Veg Jalfrezi was cooked beautifully but was a little oily. The Khadhi Panner was made in a tomato based gravy and topped with tempered Coriander seeds. Loved it. The Dal Tadka was probably the best among all. The Tandori roti were soft and well as crispy from sides, topped with generous amount of butter. The flavors of Dhaba food are intact at NH22 Dhaba.
The mixed Pickle and the Onion were just icing on the cake. The Onion were dipped in colored vinegar.

The service is good keeping in mind that the NH22 Dhaba had only 2-3 people on the floor. The food was so impressive that I visited the place again, during my return journey.
