Highway On My Plate: The Indian Guide To Roadside Eating (Paperback) Price: Rs.215

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.

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.

THE BEST FOOD GUIDE

I loved the HOMP series and was looking forward to release of the book.
Loved the book...its far better than other foodie books available in the market which focus only on 5 star cuisine.

Rocky and Mayur made the TV series a big hit due to their penchant for humour and witty one liners.

Just a small point..I wish the publishers had done some proof reading before mass printing...those who had watched HOMP religiously can vouch for the fact that there are glaring discrepancies in the book especially in regard to the ratings given by Rocky and Mayur...take several Non Veg restaurants where M...

Notwithstanding above this book is a must have for all those who love HOMP on TV and love Indian cuisine from all the corners of our great country.

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. Unable to understand the message they want to deliver to the travelers. But good thing is they have rating categories which people themselves may re-assess. Missed many good and well patronaged outlets. Disappointment to such an extent that a refun... ()

Book itself is avoidable!

Good Book.. Not a great guide though

the book was created from the point of view of quality of food and VFM.. but is it a good guide for person unfamiliar with a place.. guess not.

I had gone on a food trip across few states and tried using this as a guide to take me to the best places in the cities I travelled in.

the biggest issue with the book is that it doesn't provide accurate directions to all the places. Further the contact details provided did not work on many occasions.

I however used gprs and a lot of local help to locate these joints. once I got there the experience was great in most occations.

One more thing I missed was the details of food outlets on the highway.. it mostly talks about joints inside the city.

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 options then this is the book for you.

Coming to the readability of this book, it has no issues. It is just that my expectations were a little too higher that what this book had to offer. Do a quick pre read from Google books or other online samplers before you go with this.

I am giving it a 4 star since the book was nice just that my expectations were different.

Thanks for reading.

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)
