A Culinary Travel has been on my mind for ages and I have always wanted to explore that #Long weekend. So, to start off 2020, The first place that came our mind, that didn’t need much travel, could be done in 3 days and importantly is know for its street food was - Indore. A mere mention to my girl gang, and before we knew the 5 of us were on that Indore Duranto Express brimming with excitement
Well begun is half done, the train journey had already begun to surprise me. The clean boogies and toilets, the newspaper, tasty breakfast in small trays and clean linen was a more than welcome sign. It cannot be compared with Euro rail, but train journeys had changed for the better.
I slept like a log, only to get up in time for “Ratlam” station. What so great about “Ratlam” you’d ask me. Well all those who watched Geet say “Ratlam ki Galliyon mein” in the 2007 iconic movie “Jab We Met “will know what I am saying. Ratlam has its own Charm. Probably will cover that in the next #Long Weekend.
Much chitter chatter and laughter latter, we arrived at Indore Junction to hordes of “turmeric foreheads”. It was Mahashivratri and Indories being Shiva Bhakts, I had seen a new tradition. Indore is synonymous with Street Food and with 2 days in hand, we were super charged waiting to gobble up the best of the city’s goodies.
