Dhaba - Food for the soul

Road trips are not just about the distance but about the feeling of freedom and a search for yourself. We create trips to getaway from the city to enjoy the simplicity of nature in the company of friends who share the joy of the ride.

Every visit to the dhaba is a memory that remains forever. The aromas, the simplicity, the early morning chai or the late night paratha and omelettes that give you feeling of satisfaction. It’s inexplicable, similar to the feeling when we remember our childhood road trips with the family.

Ride along with MRF handpicks the top 5 dhaba’s on the Delhi - Chandigarh route. This route has an array of dhaba’s to visit and tantalise your taste buds with family and friends.

So put on the gear and kickstart your engines and relive those memories.
