Apollo Highway on My Plate : The Indian Guide to Roadside Eating (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.277

Highway on My Plate: The Indian Guide to Roadside Eating is a delightful book that is perfect for all those who don’t want to miss out on the diverse foods and cuisines that India has to offer. It is compiled by the popular TV anchors Rocky Singh and Mayur Sharma, based on their widely famous show with the same name, broadcasted on NDTV Good Times.

Summary of the Book

Rocky and Mayur have won the hearts of Indian foodies by visiting and introducing their audience to the best hotels, restaurants, dhabas and all other kinds of food-joints. Based on their thorough research and experience, they have compiled this book – a first of its kind – which lists all the major local eateries in which everything from breakfast items to full-course meals are available, covering almost all the major highways in India. The book offers extensive details about every state, all major cities, and the famous eateries, and provides essential information related to the fortes, quality, rating, service, and the prices. The book is all set to satisfy the crazes of readers in its 336 pages. It has road maps for important destinations, also providing details on various restaurants based on several criteria including hygiene and child-friendliness. Highway on My Plate serves as a brilliant traveller’s go-to resource collection.

About the Authors

Rocky Singh and Mayur Sharma are popular hosts of Highway on My Plate, aired on NDTV Good Times. The book with the same name as the show has been compiled together by them in a fairly cheerful and informative way. Their extensive research has been clearly reflected in their show as well as this book. The two also host another show called Jai Hind with Rocky and Mayur.

Rocky Singh hails from a military background. His father, Amarjeet Singh Hundal, was a war-hero who laid his life for the nation during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. Being the connoisseur of food that he is, Rocky travels across the globe, sampling different kinds of food from everywhere. He was formerly associated with British Airways. He had also managed a restaurant once, and is now working as an HR consultant and GM of a corporate training firm. Rocky lives with his wife and two kids. He enjoys golfing and traveling.

Mayur Sharma also comes from a military background. His father was an Indian Air Force officer. Mayur is an outdoor experiential guru, whose areas of interest happen to be interpersonal client relationships and productive group dynamics.

Extremely disappointing book

Extremely disappointing book; especially after having high hopes upon watching the TV programme. The maps are erratic. Why the writers should include places which they feel "avoidable". We expect them to guide traveler on nice places on highways so that they do not search for avoidable places. Ratings are confusing versus the write ups.

Book itself is avoidable!

Highway on my Plate: The Indian Guide To Roadside Eating

Hi Guys, the book is a listing of the places we have covered on the show so that people who wanted to visit those places could do so. this limits us to putting whatever we have covered on the show in the book. So while there may be hundreds of good eating places in a city we will put down those we have covered. ONLY. Its useful if you go to a town you have never been to and want to try out A lunch or A dinner at a famous 'local' place. As for more pics it would mean the cost going up prohibhitively. and now you know :-) .. cheers

Highway on My Plate Reviewed!!

As always had the traditional Flipkart service which is out of the world and got the book delivered before the said date.

The book..Its a great book if you want to travel the length and breadth of India and experience the local food offering of every state in India.
The book needs more places to be reviewed as there are many more places other than the said which offer nirvana for foodies like me.
The book in combination with MapmyIndia motoring atlas is the best way to get that "traveling enjoying local delicacies" feel inside you.

You might find there are better places for food that you now which are not in the book but then.. you cant expect Rocky and Mayur to sit down and eat at every dhaba and restaurant in India.
Overall a good book if you have less or no idea about what food to try out when visiting different places in India..
But please keep updating the edition and add more and more reviews every-time.
Thanks.

A disappointment after the tv series

Even though HOMP has become an advertisement show now, it used to be one of the better Indian produced food (and travel) shows. Rocky being the real star!

I bought this book hoping to get the same vibe, but this is nothing more than a way to sell the same product in a different package. And not as funny and without the visual treats. Just a listing of all the food joints they visited over the course of their famous tv show. Might be helpful while travelling to a specific location but as someone who thought this would actually be a book worth 'reading', sadly the content is lacklustre.

A book not to be bought

What they are suggesting is easily available over websites like trip advisor. Some of the suggestions are below par. You can actually miss buying this book. The show is better than the book. Not worth the money. Look for lonely planet rather. (View complete review)

a little dissapointing

I am a roadie and I am in my car most of the long weekends I get and this was the precise reason why I bought this book. I wanted to become a better foodie by having this book as a travel kit but the information and selection is extremely limited. If you are a traveller who do not look for many o...
