FOOD : This train really deserves "The Food King" tag. Wide variety of dishes right from Sheera-Upama to Chi. Lollipop are available which are freshly prepared. Food price is slightly costlier but it is OK as you get outstanding food quality. MUST TRY DISHES : Onion Uttappa, Methi Kabab and for Non-Veg lovers Chi. Biryani and Chi. Lollipop are good enough. You even get fresh fruits.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL : June - September for Monsoons Scenery as this train covers the Konkan belt in daylight and April/May for Alphonso Mangoes & other tourist places to visit throughout Konkan region.
Any idea who the food contractor is?
Ahuja & Care Caterers. This poster and menu card is what I usually see pasted inside the coaches when I board KonkanKanya/Mandovi rakes.
I used to travel very frequently on Konkan Kanya and Mandovi till 4-5 years back. The food was Ahuja Caterers and it was always great. I once got a egg white omellete, something unheard off in other Indian trains
Even the bread I got with omellete was brown bread and was fresh enough.
Their website is impressive. They seem to be headquarterted in Goa but have branches in different places. www.ahujacaterers.com/
I think Konkan Railway is wise and caring enough to scrutinize and hand over food contracts to skilled caterers as of now.
Updated Menu Card Of Mandovi Exp
Even in this menu card, Prices are higher than IRCTC declaration. Pls check.
Ex; Tea/Coffee(Normal) is just 7.
Veg Thali shud be 50
Agree With You Sir, But If The Quality and Quantity Of Food Is Good Then The Cost Is Doesn't Matter For Me.
this saturday they were charging 130 rs for veg thali in 13152. on asking for bill, the caterer told to get food on next station
where do you get Masala dosa at Rs 25 bro. I think these prices are more than reasonable considering the quality.
Haan dosa ka price kuch jyada hi reasonable hai. Samosa 30.ka tea 10 ki aur dosa 25 ka. Kuch jyda hi cheap hai
