Patri Indian restaurant evokes the tastes and aromas of foods found at India’s iconic railway stations and on board its epic train journeys.
Founder, Puneet Wadhwani (also founder and creative director of independent street food restaurant, Chai Naasto Hammersmith), has created a never-before-seen menu bringing to life the snacks and dishes he once ate as a child growing up within a bicycle ride of New Delhi train station, and of those he remembers eating on board India’s great rail journeys.
From rail side snacks, such as ‘girlfriend chaat,’ cooked on the platform and handed to travelers through the windows of passing trains, to the fragrant curries, such as, ‘rara gosht,’ cooked on board. Patri’s menu centers around the distinct culinary journeys of India’s historic railway stations.
Meaning train track, Patri’s launch menu features dishes particularly inspired by the historic New Delhi Station and the great Marwar Junction known best as the point of departure for Rudyard Kipling’s The Man Who Would Be King: – “It all began at Marwar junction, three long summers and a thousand years ago.”
