Among dhabas, you won't go wrong with Pal Dhaba or Sher-e-Punjab dhaba (Tel 91-172-2660222).
Visiting a gurudwara
If you visit gurudwaras, places of worship for the Sikh community, make sure you cover your head: non-Sikh men usually tie a handkerchief over their heads, while women cover their heads with a dupatta or a cloth.
Tips for Travellers
Since public transport isn't up to the mark in Chandigarh, try to rent a car for your stay. Driving is enjoyable and you'll find it easy to get back to the city from the stadium whenever you feel like. Otherwise you'll need to organise a cab for each trip.
