What are the effects that provide to the customers who eating along the street food?

Eating food from street vendors has its pros and cons. Customers could have a bad experience if the food is spoiled. Moreover, it’s often unsafe to eat on the street when the traffic is heavy. On the other hand, street vendors supply food we like at an acceptable cost related to our living standard.

Even though I’m one of those people who eat food on the street, I strongly agree that it can have disadvantages. Hygiene is often an issue if the dishes and tools the vendor is using are dirty. In addition, because of the competition among street vendors, some of them have to sell out-of-date food such as re-heated chicken wings. These factors can certainly have an effect on customers’ health.

One big advantage of eating food from street stalls is that it’s cheap, so anyone can afford it. But it can have many disadvantages, such as dust and dirt from the road, flies all over the food, the disorganised state of the stalls and messy plates. And when you eat something that is cheap, other people will sometimes look down on you.

Eating food along the street has both advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are that it’s usually delicious, it’s cheap, and it’s easy to find. On the other side of the coin, diarrhoea, vomiting and other illnesses can result from eating street food. Sometimes food for sale along the street doesn’t contain a virus but  becomes contaminated by dirt from the road.

In my opinion, eating street food can have some negative aspects such as a lack of cleanliness, but that applies only to some sellers.  As a street vendor, I make sure I prepare my food properly, and that the service I provide is acceptable to my customers. The prices I charge must also be suitable for my customers.
