Dhaba is the Indian name given to the road side restaurants. Usually the Dhabas are situated on the highway and generally serve local foods. In north India Dhabas are available in every 500 meter distance. They usually serve Punjabi foods, as the foods are rich and spicy.
The foods prepared in Dhabas are very popular, wholesome and loaded with full rustic flavor. They prepare and serve fresh foods. Whenever you taste the food, you will get a traditional aroma and flavor. That’s why the foods of Dhabas are really very good. Though they prepare all kind of foods but non vegetarian food are most popular. Blast of flavor as well as taste.
I saw many Dhabas use earthen pot for cooking, that may be the reason their foods have all the rustic flavor .They prepare food in very simple way and use fresh ingredients , which they buy from local markets .
