A day with Dabbawallas

Kick-starting the morning with an immersive talk with the Chief of the Dabbawala Association, Mr. Arvind Talekar, you get to know the intricate details of the magnificent tiffin service which has been in existence since almost 130 years! After the talk at a pre-booked conference venue, we head straight to the Headquarters of the Association, located in Dadar, where YOU will sort each ‘Dabba’ or ‘tiffin yourself.

Once the sorting process is over, you’ll also brave the local trains and not just that, you also get to interact with the tiffin men en route! On reaching your particular destination, you will not only deliver the freshly –cooked home food but also deliver a bundle of smiles together.

Once the activity is over at 12:30 PM, we will be having lunch at Samrat, a restaurant serving authentic, Vegetarian local cuisine to gorge on a delectable Gujarati Thali! Kindly note that the talk with Dabbawala will be done only if there are 10 guests or above.
