Train journeys are set to become a little more interesting for foodies. Taking cue from home delivery services, several restaurants at Bhopal railway station have started delivering hot food to passengers in the train, right on their berth.
All you need to do is call them at least 45-90 minutes before your train reaches Bhopal station and place your order and provide details like train name/coach no./ seat no./ticket PNR etc. Once your train reaches Bhopal, they will deliver food on your seat and collect their money.
The good part is that because of several restaurants, you are no more restricted to pantry food. You have an exhaustive and very reasonably priced menu to choose from. For example you might get mineral water, soft drinks etc at the printed price. Though they ask for a minimum order for Rs.150, it’s not bad as even a meal for one would cost that much. But the real fun is that now all major stations have similar services.
