Many a times we have heard that money can buy everything from pin to flail, but, what if you have to wait for the things you are paying for? Yes! It’s worth waiting at the Amrik Sukhdev just to tickle your taste buds. The Dhaba by name, but far better than most of the budgetary eateries at NH-1, was founded by Sardar Prakash Singh Ji in 1956, mainly to cater the needs of the truck drivers en-route. The Dhaba is located 52.250 Km stone on G.T. Road NH-1, connecting national capital Delhi to Kashmir- A heaven on earth.
Now when the time has changed, sons of Sardar Prakash Singh Ji’s, Sardar Amrik Singh and Sardar Sukhdev Singh (on the name of these two, Dhaba is referred as Amrik Sukhdev) have only evolved for the better. It is now, not only bound for the motorists, but attracts almost every commuter on the highway. Just because of its captivating ambience , it would be no wrong if I call you this place as a daylong picnic spot, as, just being few Kilometers Away from the capital city, Delhi, delhites can be seen enjoying their weekends, clicking selfies etc. Corporate clients, families and friends enjoy the great food (Including the best of Tandoori parathas, which is one of the special items in the menu). The crowd here can be guessed by just looking at the all time full parking lots.
Apart from the great ambience, the eatery has a vast menu to offer to its customers. The menu, full of delicious, mouth watering dishes includes its signature dish “Tandoori Paratha”, the unique and antique flavoured dish is served with dollops of homemade, and hand blended white makhan (home made butter). The parathas are available with almost all possible stuffing, but all time favorite mixed-veg and seasonal Gobhi (cabbage) and Mooli (radish) stuffed are big hit, especially in the winters. The blended makhan is none other than just an icing on the cake. The parathas can been seen served on each table with the popular Indian beverage the hot Tea.
Although they offer an extensive variegated range of tandoori parathas but the list does not end here, another famous dishes which are served include, the all time Punjabi’s favorite, ‘Chole Bhature’ variety of rice and pulao, South Indian- Idly, Veda and Dosa with really amazing sambhar and coconut chutney, Indian curries- Dal Makhani, Dal Tadka, Pilli Dal (Home styled), Shahi Paneer, Matar Methi Malai , assorted breads and many more are the next items which are simply amazing.
No matter how delectable the food was, but the finisher, the desert always has its own importance and to cater this they have many options ranging from Rabri, Gulab Jaamun, Rabri Faluda, Mataka Kulfi, Bengali Rasagulla and many more. Believe me, after savoring any of these, you won’t stop yourself saying “ Mazaa Aa Gaya” (It was really awesome).
