Having ranted on about how massively useless Caffe Nero is and how the general provision of food in Waverley station is poor, I thought it best to visit the shining weekly light that is their Localmotive Market, which sets up its stalls just near platform 2.

I’ve visited many times in the past, sampling Scoff, the Edin-Burgers, Aye Love Real Food and many others. Today, I took the opportunity to renew acquaintances with the Punjabi Junction. We reviewed them ages ago when they were still trading as Punjab’n de Rasoi and had seen their market stall at the odd one-off festival event, but it was good to see them doing what looks to be a more regular pitch.

They offered a nice selection of items from which I chose the mixed veggie daal curry and jeera rice (£4).

There were a few tables and chairs in the middle of the market so I sat there to munch. It proved to be a deliciously satisfying eat with beautifully seasoned curry and lovely rice, which was lightly aromatic and frangranced with cumin seeds. It made me very happy.

So overall, Punjabi Junction is doing cracking work. They now offer a Friday curry delivery service (details here) so that’s worth checking out. I look forward to many future trips both to their shop and their stall.
