The National Highway 1 was a significant road in India, connecting the national capital New Delhi to the town of Attari in Punjab near the India-Pakistan border. It was also a part of the historic Grand Trunk Road. Taking inspiration from the destinations along NH 1, including Delhi, Panipat, Ambala, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar, Socorro, the global cuisine restaurant in Hotel Crowne Plaza, Jaipur is hosting a unique food festival that celebrates the diverse flavours of Northern India. Aptly called, ‘NH 1, The Taste of North’, the festival has on offer Parathe from the streets of Delhi, Panipat ka Saag, Ambala ki Chaat, Ludhiana ke Kharode, Jalandhar ka Butter Chicken, and Naan Kulcha from Amritsar.

“Most of our guests who drive down to Jaipur and stay with us are from the Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. Using the experiences they share about the culinary adventures on the highway as well as the knowledge of our chefs about the local cuisines of their region, this festival has been curated. We have tried to use the traditional cooking techniques like hand ground spices and smoked flavours of the tandoor as well as fresh ingredients to ensure authentic taste .There is a huge spread with options in both vegetarian as well as non vegetarian food”, shares Chef Chandrabhan Singh Rathore, Junior Sous Chef of the hotel.

The restaurant has been beautifully transformed, with the incorporation of milestones, khaats of dhabas, trucks, and other elements that are synonymous with life on the highway. The attention to detail is evident in every corner of the restaurant, from the well-placed truck models to the wooden khaats that evoke memories of the many dhabas along NH 1. The result is a warm and inviting atmosphere that is both nostalgic and contemporary, and perfectly captures the spirit of the highway.
