Being host to students from all parts of Maharashtra, Pune has a number of outlets serving Khandeshi cuisine. But their quality of food and hence popularity has been volatile. Khandesh Express is at its peak now a days. Weekends here are especially crowded and will test your patience. But wait seems worth as you dig your teeth into luscious pieces of chicken and/or mutton.
Both Thalis come in two options,the regular one with meat cooked in curry and the fry one. The beloved rassa in Gavran Chicken Thali is fiery hot in terms of temperature as well as taste. Can be a great homely medicine for chronic cough as they say. The Mutton Thali does wonders on palate. The Bhakri accompanying is just a perfect complement.
Vegetarians can also rejoice in pleasure of their ever popular Shev Bhaji, Pithala/Besan, and Kaju curry. All of them are super spicy.
Not heavy on pocket, Khandesh Express is a great way to perk up yourself on a Sunday evening as the thoughts of dreaded Monday mornings start shadowing your mind.
