Dhabas are wayside restaurants very simple with no decor but the food that one gets there is equivalent or better than what one gets in 5 star restaurants In fact there are some 5 star restaurants that place orders with such Dhabas
They are normally found along HIghways and travellers stop by. We were traveling by car once and we stopped by a Dhaba. That Dhaba was only making chapatis but with countless varieties. I had only known of ordinary chapatis. We had to wait for a while as they started making them only after we arrived. We got to eat crisp and hot chapatis. The stuffing was as we wanted it to be.
This was a great memory
Do you have such roadside restaurants where you live?
