@delhiwala, @Debajeetb: Thanks you both. Both of you seem to be referring to the same place/guy. I had heard of quite a few places that sold biryani this way. Seems most of it is lost to the commercialisation of food.

I go to India 3-4 times per year. Only had problem twice. Once after eating at Chennai Sheraton (pink inside, Lamb Burger)and second time in a restaurant/bar food that probably re-refrigerated food several times. Never had problem with street food. The thing to watch out is that make sure that food is bubbling hot (which mostly street food is), skip the washed salads on the street.

Thanks delhiwallah, didn't know Gianni had more outlets now. Looking forward to yummy Delhi street food.

bhristi, interesting I too got sick from sandwich at Subway whereas street food has never caused any problems.

narendra.d, that's creepy about the Happy Meal. Yuck! Awful stuff, McD's and other fast food here. I hardly ever eat at fast food places but there's a "roach coach" near my school that offers delicious Mexican grub. People think I'm nuts for eating there but I have never gotten sick whereas my colleagues have from eating at fancier places. Ha! Give me honest-to-goodness street food any day.

Brishti, There are some nameless, shopless, mobile vendors from where I sometimes eat, like Lotan Kulche wala at Chatta Shah Ji or Daulat ki Chaat. But unless they come with strong recommendation I can't eat at all and sundry Khomchas. But that's me and doesn't mean that Khomchas can't have good food.

@ Gametotravel - Restaurant ? Which of them is a restaurant. They all are either shops or dhabas ?

Whatever.... I wanted to post pics of some celebrated food joints of Chandni Chowk and that's what I did.

@ Delhiwala:

Finally, had my first taste of Daulat ki Chaat (Malai Makhhan)at Chawri Bazaar. For a few moments I thought I would almost cry, it was that good!

I was going through this thread and had to create a user id just to share this article which came in the Delhi Times yesterday. Also worth checking out is this do-it-yourself chandni chowk food walk article I had seen recently.
Cheers
