Along with the pros of street food snacking came the cons. The quality of the street food places may not necessarily be terrible but little below average quality norms. In order to keep the costs economical, street food vendors tend to compromise on the quality of the ingredients they use for cooking like vegetables, cooking oil, expired sauces & spices, milk products, etc. Also, consuming street food on a regular basis can impact our health if it’s prepared in unhygienic conditions.
