Eating healthy while travelling is something odd to talk as you won’t know who is cooking, with what hands are they cooking, what king of oil are they using, weather the cooking utensils are fully clean or not, many doubts come to your mind and thereby we mind eating out.

Check for allergic foods in ingredients we don’t know how locals cook and what ingredients are used to the dishes so if you are allergic to any food please check for it without any hesitation.
