For quite some time, if you were catching a train from the Old Delhi Railway Station or Nizamuddin Railway Station, it was impossible to find a decent eating joint. I remember on many trips we either packed something from home (both of us are bad cooks) or ate in dhabas (I like eating in dhabas) but they were at least a kilometer away from the station, or so it seemed on an empty stomach and pollution filled eyes.
Then suddenly on one trip (I have forgotten which one, Oh! it was to Bangalore, now I remember after writing a few more lines) I saw a proper eating joint that you can see in the picture. Now this is a great idea. The place is always full whenever I went there and the food is quite decent and prices reasonable. On my trip to Bharatpur, I had a coffee and a rawa masala dosa. There are so many people traveling by trains that it makes great sense to have places like this. I wonder what took the Indian Railways to come up with one?
