This food tip is based on my second experience with this train from Kulem to Pune. On our first expedition, we carried home made food and hence didn't taste the pantry food.
We ordered Veg Biryani and Egg Biryani from Meals on Wheels vendors.
Myself being a vegetarian had the Veg one while my friends had non-veg ones. The Biryani was one
anmul ice cream lolzzzzz
there are many places in railways,where local venders provide better food than onboard.
some routes are-
bbs - jsg route
Meals on Wheels is once of the worst food vendor on almost all the routes. IRCTC is the best.
I think railways should ban meals on wheels.

Egg Biryani at 100rs and veg thali for 130rs
egg Biryani was not good , Rice was uncooked nd cold , thali was ok , if u wanna order pantry food in this train then don't try biryani ,
Huh the same egg biryani is sold at 70 in most cases.
after trying pantry in lunch we try travelkhana for dinner
we Order butter chicken nd Chapati combo , delivery station Miraj
after applying coupon we pay 230rs for this ,
food kafi badhiya tha , butter chiken nd chapati abhi bhi garam thy jab miraj pe deliver hue , ye ab tak ka best food tha mere
Yes Travelkhana is best to deliver food on seat and now IRCTC is also running in the race, pantry food is worse in almost every trains now. Can't play with our health ;)

Helpful and nice description
While travelling in this train for Vasco Londa part of the journey try to get a seat to your right side to enjoy a beautiful beach at Sankval station places like Suravli, Chandor, etc and the Majestic Dudhsagar Waterfalls.
From Vasco to MRJ, it should be "Lower" or "Side lower" ?
Last time when i travelled side lower was near to the waterfalls side.
But i would still stay seat to your right it can be lower or side lower.
Dudh sagar water fall is awsome espically in monsoon......
At the dudhsagar...... in monsoon
Nt nly for vasco to mrj....
Side lower is best seat in train......
Any reasons why side lower is best ?
