Giani da Dhaba is one of the oldest dhabas on the Shimla-Kalka Highway. Especially well known for its paranthas and non-vegetarian delicacies, they serve a special parantha called the Mirchi parantha – stuffed with green chilies, it is a must try for those who like their food hot and spicy. It goes perfectly with a chilled pitcher of lassi on a hot day. They also serve a much-sought-after sweet – kheer – a milk sweet served garnished with coconut.
Unique to Giani da Dhaba is their Murga ka achaar, a rare pickle served with their chicken curry, another highly recommended item on their menu.
