Street food eateries and their hubs do not carry a good reputation in India. And, there are very few places which truly maintain cleanliness in serving street food. Until today, despite the up-gradation of cleaning facilities around the country, many still fear eating street food. Firstly, due to the cleanliness factor, secondly, one might be taking home a lot of diseases. But, it’s good news for the people of Gujarat’s Vadodara!
Cleanest Street Food Hub In India – Vadodara
Vadodara’s public can feed themselves well as the Food Safety, and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) declares the city to have the cleanest street food hub. It was set up by the Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) opposite Kamatibaug and has been selected among the top three clean street food hubs in the entire country.

These tags were given to states and street food hubs by the FSSAI on the occasion of World Food Safety Day. Vadodara won the third nationally while standing first in the state. As many as 188 municipal corporations from around the country participated in this food cleanliness challenge.
