At least you can judge the cleanliness etc for yourself. The food was definitely a highlight. First i am also fear to take street foods. Because when i am in travel that time i am suffered from street foods. So we clearly know how they are prepare. So here after i am choose a street food and enjoy with this different taste in my travels. Great tips! Love eating the local foods and am a huge fan of street food.
Never thought to bring anything to clean the cutlery. That is brilliant. When backpacking, I usually have cutlery in my pack for the hostels…. I love your tips for eating from street food stalls. Getting sick is always a worry for me because I do not like wasting precious travel time.
Total om-nom-domination! What an awesome post!

A truly fascinating area and a lovely blog that sets me off on a rant at all times!

Harira soup in Marrakesh , Morocco Other tips: I aim for stalls where the person cooking is not also handling the money, and if they are, then they are handling that money with gloves on, taking them off to cook the food.
