Dara's Dhaba!

30 days after my last post I am finally blogging today. Nothing has changed except for the fact that our very own food photographer is now my fiancé. Yes, its official and all that! So while we have been busy with all the engagement party preps, we stopped for a short break while shopping at this place called Dara's Dhaba.

Punjabi Style!

Located on the outskirts of the city and right off the highway, this is a nice place to walk in for a lazy noon lunch or for dinner on a weekend. The seating arrangement outside gives a "dhabawali" feeling, complete with khatiyas and coir chairs. We did not think much and ordered for tandoori and butter chicken and relaxed on the khatiyas with a glass of beer. Perfect rainy noon!

The Dhaba Beer!

Chicken Tandoori was well made. The chicken was juicy, soft and fresh. It was non greasy and not too spicy.

Butter chicken is an all time favorite for me. What I liked about it here was that it was not too sweet. The portion serves two to satisfaction.

Happy and full we decided to end this lovely noon lunch on a sweet note. Totally recommend their Matka Kulfi.

The food was delicious though the service was on the slower side. And since we were in a mood to laze I did not mind that at all. I like the dhaba feel of this place but only wishing they could do something to keep the flies away. Do try this place over a weekend when you want to unwind and are not really in a mood to fine dine.

Cost- INR 1000 for two

Address- Western Express Highway 8, Kashimira, Post Mira Road East, Mumbai
