breakfast - 2 bread slices with a coat of butter and 2 pieces of veg cutlet or omlette costs 35 inr initially, and after 2 hours 30 inr :D
lunch, dinner - veg meals / nv meals. veg meals costs 100 inr. rice, sabji, dhal, pickle, mineral water - 200 ml, panner-matar masala and 2 pieces of roti for lunch and 2 pieces of rumali roti for dinner.
unlike vivek express (dibru to kanya) few local vendors enter 2 ac compartments.
piece idli with chutney available from local vendors who enter coach in durgapur is also fine.
you can buy poori (6 pieces) and hot alu masala for 30 inr from local vendors in cuttack platform. idli also available.
briyani lovers dont miss mutton briyani from dindigul thalappakati restaurant in central station. inform them your urgency - i got my parcel in less than 2 minutes.
veg lovers try the various types of rice in saravana bhavan. but their service time would raise your blood pressure.
after crossing chennai you will get samosa/singada in train. each piece costs 10 inr. in jolarpettai you will get hot hot ulunda (urad dal) vada from local vendors. costs 10 inr per piece.
throughout travel hot tomato soup is available between or after food timings. costs 20 inr per cup.

In the food stall by Rail aahar, there is no concern for change. Though the prices appear cheap, the quantity is less; but have to agree its ok when compared to other outlets.
Rathna cafe is open till 1:30 AM and starts again at around 3:45AM. Be ware that the parcel idlis in boxes are something in the shelf till they get sold. Morning few boxes of idlis and sambar vessels arrive. But they are served for the people who consume it there only. If you want parcel, you will get old stock for sure. (I was sitting in front of Rathna Cafe for the entire night from 10:30 PM to morning 6:00 AM) About 90 Rs for 2 iddlis is really
hard to acccept :( Thankfully the staff was quite generous in providing sambhar and chutnies :D

No need to worry about the problem of no food stalls in Santragachi or proper hotels near station in first platform side. As soosn the train starts moving you will start getting snacks and order for dinner will be taken. Food quality and quantity is ok. I had a feeling that salt was less. Price as usual, you know how much they charge.

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...
