Most of us love to eat when we travel especially in Trains, thats why the concept of Food on Wheels is getting popular, I personally cannot eat stale food and rely on IRCTC (Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation) and its channel partners to get food in train, but that seldom impress’s anyone. The quality of food is really low from a hygiene and taste perspective.
Now a days, number of services have started that allows you to order quality food while on the rail. All you need to have is a smartphone with internet, either your PNR Number or Train Number. The menu appears as soon as key information is entered and shows where all the food on wheels is available along the route. These services also show where your food is coming from. The order needs to be made atleast an hour ago depending from service to service. The service is available in almost all major railway stations.
Food for traveling in train is bound to a plausible growth as multiple vendors are already lining up to make “online khana order” a trend among average commuters compelling them to order food on train rather than packing heavy lunch boxes from home. Brands like Domino’s, Comesum, RailRestro have teamed up with IRCTC to equip you with a rich menu from 500+ restaurants and help make food delivery in train a success.
