Tweet on struggling Mumbai Litti-Chokha vendor goes viral; Zomato helps
New Delhi: A litti-chokha seller from Versova beach, Mumbai has garnered attention of netizens. A post shared on Twitter by Priyanshu Dwivedi informs the seller named Yogesh has one of the best litti-chokha in Mumbai. The post has now received a response from Zomato India too after Dwivedi tagged them in his tweet.
“This guy is Yogesh. He is selling best Litti-Chokha in the town (Near Versova beach, Mumbai) and Just for 20 rupees per plate (which includes, 2 littis dipped into butter, delicious chokha, chutney and salad),” reads the caption of the tweet shared by Dwivedi. He then goes on to describe how Yogesh has been facing several difficulties while meeting his daily expenses due to the lack of sales.
The thread then informs how the seller has failed to list his shop on Zomato and needed help to keep his business afloat. The post is complete with pictures of Yogesh and his lip-smacking litti-chokha and a personal review from Dwivedi which says, “Itni badhiya litti kahin nahin milegi.”

able to list his shop just because he doesn't know much about the process, also whom to contact for. He told me that right now he is facing financial issues and facing a tough time.
