At a time when smartphones have become our only solace, it is not surprising to find ourselves amidst innumerable apps each promising to be better than the other.
Of late, food apps have taken over our lives in every possible way. Be it food delivery, recommendations, photo sharing et al, these apps have found themselves on our smartphones for their unique features, look and feel.
The following six food apps are our go-to apps and could be handy for you too. Check them out.
Travel Khana – Food Delivery by Indian Railways

Just add the details of the train like PNR and select what you would want to eat from the restaurant of your choice. Expect piping hot food from vada-sambhar, burgers to even thaalis at your selected station. What’s great is that you can order anywhere from across the country. Say goodbye to boring train food.
