Roadside vendors

Postby Alexandoy » Mon Jun 19, 2017 11:14 am

I love to go on a long road trip because aside from enjoying the sights, there are also the food items that we can buy. Going down south, there are vendors boiling corn by the roadside so the corn cob is truly hot since it comes from the big cooking vat. Fruits are also sold and you cannot go hungry since there are lots of eateries along the way. I'd say it's an enjoyable trip all the time.

I think it's possible in our parts of the world where you find roadside vendors and eating joints but if you travel in the western countries you will hardly find any such "LUXURY" but what you get is stores at petrol pumps like Caltex, Seven Eleven, BP petrol pumps catering to all your needs. To be very frank, even I miss roadside fruit vendors and eating joints which cost almost nothing compared to the facilities available in stores and restaurants.

Ha ha.. Even I love those vendors and specially when they are selling corns. I just love them. We have enjoyed that kind of road vendors many time and yes it is kind part of journey many times. So yes trying such food during travelling is really enjoying.

In here you can see lots of roadside vendors while traveling within the state and even on the highways too. I always eat fruit salad, tender coconut, baked corn, spicy mango pieces, spicy pineapples, chats and much more. Also, they will be very tasty compared to the same eating in big restaurants.

I am thankful that such vendors are also on the road sides here. When it is hot and the traffic is horrible one may buy a cold drink right then and there. Some sell corn snacks and also corn prepared how ever we please. There are also people who sell candies and many kinds of nuts. I know of many places where they don't have vendors like these even though it would be great for the buyers and an apportunity for the vendors.

You gotta to travel in my native country India lol. There you find so many roadside vendors which make it almost impossible to travel or drive your car/two wheeler. Sometimes you feel there are more vendors than travelers on the road. Once you stop on a red light you're almost always crowded with roadside vendors selling fruits, cold drinks and other edibles.

Haha I guess I didn't think about that too much can be a little overwhelming. I guess the amount I find here is a good amount and too much more is not really needed. I guess them stopping traffic or holding it up is not too good. Right here it is quick we just make them a sign as soon as we see them and they prepare things fairly quick and the traffic is normal since the vendors spread out.

Even I like to eat and new food while travelling. I love to try roadside food but it is the fear of falling I'll that refrains me most of the times. Although I try some.during winters but keep away in summers when there are so many chances of food geeti g rottened up due to high temperature

Roadside vendors do add colors and excitement to road trips. In our last road trip at a point we stopped to get some edible stuffs from the roadside sellers there. We bought cooked corn, all sorts of fruits, suya. The food were good and served as we were beginning to feel hungry before meeting the food vendors by the roadside.

This is always a nice little addition to any trip, and it is just an easy and convenient way to try out some of the local cuisine. I would probably have to be extra careful, but would have to indulge.
