Everyone loves long-drives and highways are full of surprises. It is so interesting to see the changing weather, people, and cuisines while moving along the road. Even the smallest dhaba on a highway has yummy food which makes our trip a memorable one. Keeping all this in mind, Dhaba Estd 1986  decided to bring out those nostalgic feeling live among their diners where they will be discussing and cherishing those amazing moments with their friends/family.  Hence Dhaba Estd 1986, has launched a new menu which primarily focuses on National Highway delicacies. From a simple Daal Dhaba to flavorsome Kashmiri Dum Aloo to spicy Laal Maas, Mutton Rogan Josh to soul-soothing Papad Ki Sabzi and whatever else you get in a highway dhaba is now available at all the outlets of Dhaba Estd 1986. Read through the blog and am sure you will skip your long drive once and try this.

It was a for weekday dinner, we headed to our very favorite, Dhaba Estd 1986 in Marathahalli. I have not been to the Indira Nagar outlet, if you guys have been there, do comment below and share your experience with me. The restaurant is quite spacious and ambiance feels so good, charming and only good vibes. 

Those soda bottles, soft drink bottles, tiffin dhabas, chaat counters, paintings on the wall, the peppy dance by the wait-staffs made us all feel in Punjab and do some Bhangra. 

Highway Menu : Simple and So good... 

The menu is very different from the old one, this one had a lot of vegetarian options, recipes since 1986, quick nibbles, simple comforting food, tandoors, kebabs, and kadhai specials available in the highway dhabas. We started off by ordering some Aam Panna, Ganne Ka Ras and a few cocktails too. What I loved here, was those old styles codd-necked bottles stirring nostalgia. 

In small plates, had the Veg Manchuria, Begun Bhaja, Highway Chicken Tikka and Masala Papad. The main course was full of surprises, yes they have tried out something very different and deviated from the rich curries to spicy and tangy curries available in Highway Dhabas. The Kashmiri Dum Aloo was flavorsome, spicy and every scoop of it went amazingly well with the rice and the dhaba rotis, we even ordered for one more of it. 

For me, Dhaba Estd 1986 has always got the best of mutton curries, the mutton is sourced so carefully that it's tender and succulent. The Highway menu had the spicy Laal Maas and Mutton Rogan Josh. The Laal Maas had prominent smokey flavours which came from the mustard oil and extremely hot with the specially sourced chili from Rajasthan, called as "Mathania". 

Papad Ki Sabzi, again a simple and comforting tangy and spicy curry was worth trying, and how do I forget that soul-soothing simple Daal Dhaba which everyone was raving about. 

No-one skipped that rich glass of lassi in Matka glasses. According to me, this restaurant has got the best lassis in Bangalore. Finished off the dinner with Rasmalai and Rasgulla. 

Overall, the experience was a fun-filled one with charming dances, peppy bollywood music, and good service. Coming to the food, it was a good journey which totally stirred out some nostalgic feeling of our most loved long-drives. The prices are slightly on the fancier side, but the service, quality and that lingering taste make it all worthy.
