It has an advantage of serving food on street and any number of culinary creations from street-side location. On the same note, Jyoti Ganapathi, Founder & CEO at Dosa Inc speaks, “Our goal is to approach the customer unlike a restaurant or a shop where they are waiting for customer to walk in or call. When we are in a neighbourhood, we are the only option for food that residents will think about; nothing is more convenient or compelling than us on that day. The food we offer is South Indian. It is a food that most people have tasted before and enjoyed, but what we do is ensure that the taste is authentic and has a home feel to it”.

Diversity in India

Vada Pav, Mumbai known street food, which won’t be wrong to say, has actually made a big name for the city in street food. “Many places are serving “Indian street food” and calling it gastronomy or fusion. I feel its “gimmicky” food, which works for many people, but I feel Mumbai’s street food can never be replaced by fancy presentation or by adding smoke to the vadapav”, Bunty Arora, MD, Doppio Bar & Brasserie.

We all know that street food is not hygienic, but still no one can refuse those deep-fried aloo tikki, gol gappas and freshly steamed momos. Street foods are inexpensive, delicious and easily accessible across the country. Today, street menu includes pizzas, pastas, salads and many more.  Even international cuisines restaurants have come up with street food menu.

Therefore, today, street food reflects both cosmopolitanism as well as carbohydrate-fuelled foodstuff.
