Street food may not always adhere to hygiene standards, increasing the risk of foodborne illnesses.
Leafy greens like spinach and cabbage may contain dirt and contaminants, so it's best to avoid them during the monsoon unless thoroughly cleaned and cooked.
Excessive consumption of fried foods can lead to indigestion and weight gain. Opt for lighter cooking methods.
Raw or undercooked seafood can carry harmful bacteria and parasites. Stick to well-cooked seafood.
Pre-cut fruits sold by street vendors may not be properly washed or stored, risking contamination.
Avoid unpasteurized milk and dairy products, as they can carry harmful microorganisms.
Wild mushrooms can be toxic, so it's safer to avoid them unless you are certain they are safe to eat.
Be cautious with non-vegetarian dishes, especially if you're unsure about the source and quality of the meat.
Dairy-based desserts from unreliable sources can lead to foodborne illnesses. Opt for packaged or reputable brands.
Leftover or stale food can harbor bacteria. Consume freshly prepared meals and avoid reheating food multiple times.
