I was lucky enough to enjoy some food at the Le Jardin Restaurant inside of the Oberoi hotel in Bangalore recently. The courses were decent but not particularly tasty, especially considering the high cost of the food there.
While fancy restaurants in India might make travelers feel safer from waterborne microbes and other sanitary issues, you can easily navigate the street food vendors to get a snack at a much better price.
Some General Guidelines To Eating Indian Street Food
- Stick to well-cooked foods that are either barbecued or fried.
- Avoid liquids (juices, shakes, tea).
- Watch where others are eating, it’s usually a good indicator of the quality of food.
Here’s an example of a vendor selling samosas at one of New Delhi’s oldest markets, Chandni Chowk.
It looks pretty delicious to me!
The palak paneer and potatoes were awesome…and every Caesar salad needs to have that much chicken. Not just 2 strips 😛
Potatoes are always awesome!! I’m pretty sure Stina would agree 😀
You can bet on that!
what’s the green thing 😀 ? looks like the egyptian “molokeyya” to me 😀 !!
It’s called palak (saag) paneer. Spinach with Indian cheese, one of my absolute most favorite foods – Indian or otherwise 🙂
