Highway On My Plate: The Indian Guide To Roadside Eating (Paperback) Price: Rs.254

Highway On My Plate: The Indian Guide to Roadside Eating caters to a lot of readers, ranging from those who have recently traveled to the subcontinent to the locals of the country. This book is a good resource that’s ideal for those who don’t want to miss out on the diverse cuisines that India offers, and are looking for the perfect guide to good eating.

Written by popular anchors Rocky Singh and Mayur Sharma, this book is a spin on the famous show with the same name that’s aired on NDTV Good Times and hosted by the authors themselves. The places and eateries that they have visited on the show come alive again on the pages of this food guide.

The first of its kind, this book lists all the major dhabas, restaurants, and local eateries that serve everything from breakfast items to full-course meals. It covers almost all the major highways in India. It provides details about every state, the major cities, and the main eateries, and provides indispensable information regarding the specialities, rating, quality, service, and the prices in such places.

From Chawani Lal Halwai in Rajasthan, which is famous for its kachoris, to Puran Singh Ka Dhaba, a place that is renowned for its meat curries, the book satisfies the whims of every reader in 336 pages. It also provides road maps for different destinations, and also provides details on restaurants based on criteria like hygiene and child-friendliness.

Published in the year 2010, this book quickly made its way into every traveler’s go-to resource collection. It was well received right upon its release.

About The Authors
Rocky Singh and Mayur Sharma are popular hosts of NDTV Good Times, where they host the show, Highway On My Plate. This book is their first and only writing venture together till date.

The book has been written in a fairly light-hearted and informative manner. A lot of research has been undertaken by both the authors and this is clearly reflected in their writing.

Rocky Singh hails from a military background, and his father, Amarjeet Singh Hundal was a war-hero who was killed during the Indo-Pakistan war of 1971. A connoisseur of food, Rocky travels around the world, sampling cuisines from everywhere. He has previously worked as a gas distributor, and with British Airways. He once even managed a restaurant, and is currently an HR consultant and GM of a corporate training organization. He has a wife and two kids, and enjoys golfing and traveling. 

Mayur Sharma hails from a similar background, as he is the son of a retired IAF (Indian Air Force) officer. He is an outdoor experiential educator, and his areas of interest are productive group dynamics and interpersonal client relationships.

The two also host another show called Jai Hind With Rocky and Mayur.

Awsome 2some

These guys are the king of PJ's and genuinely love to eat...sorry make that live to eat. I am a big fan of the TV series which gives you the true street flavor of whichever part of India they are in. The food guide for the real India - the India that cares a lot for paisa vasool and not so much for hygiene.

Loved the series, love the book...keep eating guys!

Great Food Info but...

Flipkart - You are amazing with your packing and delivery. No doubt about it.

HOMP - The cover is just great and the content is the real winner. But I am disappointed by the style and layout of the inner pages - The Presentation is a Zero. They don't match the NDTV GOOD TIMES channel style. The inner pages are just like any other novel. I am sure they were in a hurry to release the book.

They should have used some colour, good paper, food visuals from each shop, some travelling shots and so on. This book should have been more interesting. Now, It just look like yellow pages for some good Food places. I will use it only if I have to find out about a place where we get food but will never open it to just go through just for the love of it. Its boring text.

I'm sure people would not mind paying more if this would have been in colour and with more visuals as I mentioned above.

Super attractive cover and genuine food reviews but poor presentation...

I will wait for HOMP Version 2 print with some colour and interesting visuals.

Good crossover to print media from the TV series

This book is basically the same thing seen in the TV travel/food log.

But as I have been trying very hard, without much success, to get a ready reference of Rocky's and Mayur's travels on the Net, this book comes comes as the perfect answer to my prayers.

Each town/city has only 2-3 places and the book is best suited for a domestic tourist, particularly one on a road trip.

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.

Lovely start (fingers crossed)

My first impression is that the book is BIG. It covers 25 states and union territories which any hungry traveler would visit. The fact that two guys (and the crew of course) can eat @ so many places in just a few years is mind boggling. The book includes all the eateries one has seen in the HOMP episodes. Every state is further divided into major cities and the eateries description is followed by the verdict, rating, specialties, contact details and the prices. Some places even have the timings mentioned which can be extremely helpful. Famous filligrimage sites such as the Gaba Dabeli wala, Zain's in calicut or the Chilika Dhaba for its yummy yummy sea food get the "Rocky & Mayur rating of Excellence".
The book starts with a small "how to use" guide and probably lists the states in no particular order. Three quarters of the way into the book there are a few coloured pages containing pictures. There are even maps which places the eateries in the approximate location. Personally I would have loved more coloured pages and better maps but hey, the quality and content of the book places it among much pricier top travel/food books which don't even have such a deep understanding of what an Indian stomach wants.

From today this book holds a place in my collection of books to carry along where ever I travel. Permanently. "There's no place like India in this world, where strangers become family with just one smile."
