Keylong Glimpsed

Keylong Glimpsed

A friendly atmosphere, a clean kitchen and tasty food make the Pau Gomba Sanju Dhaba at Keylong in Himachal Pradesh the ideal stopover for a tired traveller. 

While in Keylong, I have been visiting the Pau Gomba Sanju Dhaba morning and evening. In external appearance, it is quite undistinguished, but as I have discovered, the atmosphere inside is friendly, the kitchen clean and open, the food tasty and the staff willing to cater to my little whims.

Pasang Dolma runs the dhaba with a male assistant and her two younger sisters. The food is priced reasonably, and the dhaba does roaring business. Despite keeping long hours—6.30 in the morning to 10.30 at night—Pasang remains cheerful and is always ready to engage in friendly banter with acquaintances who drop in. And as for me, I have found the information she has provided about excursions around town to be very useful.
