Traveling is all about the experience. For many people, food is on the very top of that list. But if you are traveling somewhere new on a budget, this is where things can get tricky. If it’s first time to this destination, you might have no idea what you’re getting into with that tasty and chic food cart across the street. Not only might it taste bad, it could be downright dangerous. Nobody wants to have their dream vacation ruined by getting sick!
