Hit the highway to enjoy some soul-greasing food. You won't be driving too long either! Even if you are, there's no better reason than food!

Wasting Your Time Brunching in the City? Here Are 7 Foodie Reasons to Get Out of There!:

  1. Mumbai (Maharashtra)
  2. Bangalore (Karnataka)
  3. Delhi
  4. Jaipur (Rajasthan)

1. Calling all Mumbaikars! Tank up and head to Shalimar Dhaba

Calling all Mumbaikars! Tank up and head to Shalimar Dhabasource: madhurasrecipe.com

Don't sleep in and drive down to Colaba for your 200th late lunch. Hit the Mumbai-Nasik highway. Shalimar Dhaba serves lip-smacking food at insanely cheap prices. This is one hour long Mumbai drive that's actually worth it for a change! Their fresh and juicy chicken dishes are crazy good. The dirt-cheap menu has a mix of Punjabi specialties such as Chicken Malai Tikka, Bhuna Chicken, Mutton Lazeez and Egg Tandoori Roti. 

HolidayIQ Traveller Dilip tells us its an awesome drive too: “Day journey was pleasant due to hilly areas and small waterfalls.” 

Distance from Mumbai: 1 h 1 min (46.1 km) via NH 3.

2. Garlicky vada pav and cutting chai. Drooling already?

Garlic infused vadas. What are you waiting for? Tank up that bike and ride to Khopoli. Stopover at Hotel Ramakant for their garlic-infused vadas. Not enticing enough? Take the winding road to Rajesh's Tea and Vada Pav Stall. Drool on the piping hot vadas for just 5 bucks or sip the made-to-order cutting chai. Food is not reason enough? Check out the view: A distant waterfall running down Khandala Ghat and the glimpse of of Khopoli through evergreen trees are guaranteed to fill you up. Still reading? Why?? Go hit that highway!

Distance from Mumbai: 1 h - Mumbai-Pune Expressway

3. Drinking weekends are passe. A scenic ride to the Indian Paratha Company is more like it.

Lazing around the weekend or meeting up for brunch in the city? Please. Your facebook check-in at the Indian Paratha Company on the Hyderabad Highway means you get it.

Distance from Bangalore: 40 km (thats a no excuses distance right there)

Don’t let distance stop you. This one is so close that would be more than a little lame.  

Reviewer Saurabh Maheshwari recommends: “I wanted to take a short drive and began at 6 a.m. We started and had breakfast on the way to Kanakpura Road. Vasu Hotel, 50 km from Bangalore, is on Kanakapura road and you must stop here for the delicious masala dosa and strong south Indian filter coffee."

Distance from Bangalore: 50 km. Vasu Hotel On Kanakpura Road - NH209

Hot thatte idlis and crispy vada at Renukamba in Bidadi. If you haven't done it, do yourself a favour and get yourself there. It's on the Mysore road.

HolidayIQ biker Sri shares: “The plan was to take a long bike ride to Mysore Road. We spotted a place - Renukamba Thatte Idli near Bidadi. Trust me this place serves the best thatte idlis ever. The idlis are very soft and hot. They are served with two dollops of butter. The place is very crowded all the time. So if you plan to try idlis in this place, you need to reach early. The ride is totally worth it.”

Distance from Bangalore: 45 km

6. That delicious Murthal secret!

Seriously, you need to do that drive via NH1 to Murthal. Gorge on the the tandoor cooked parathas served with dollops of white butter. Mmmm. Sukhdev Dhaba and Gulshan Da Dhaba should be the ones on your list. Don't forget the lassi. Its as Punjabi as it gets. 

Reviewer Shilpa recommends a stop at Gulshan Da Dhaba: “Smooth drive with toll tax stop on the way. There are plenty of food options at Murthal.”

Distance from Delhi:  1 h 37 min (59.0 km) via NH 1

Doesn’t a jaunt feel great when you spot some lip-smacking local delights? Look no further, this weekend head out of Jaipur towards Sikar you will come to the grand Sharma Dhaba. The naan cooked in fresh milk and the Mava Naan are a must try here.
