Understandably, hygiene could be a big concern while deciding to eat local. And it should be. That’s why, we at Talking Street take it very seriously.

Let us start by telling you that Talking Street is a curated set of locally-loved eateries, recommended by food experts from that particular destination. What that means is that every restaurant or eatery that we include on Talking Street is among the most recommended and most popular ones in that location.

We pick the most popular eateries because we believe that popularity is an indicator of freshness, apart from taste. That is, the more an outlet sells, the higher are the chances that its ingredients and food is perfectly fresh. Popularity also cues consistency in delivering great tasting food.

Once we have this list of top eateries in a location, we request our local food experts to verify that each of the eateries meets our basic hygiene requirements. Outlets that have basic hygiene practices in place get featured, but only after they are crowd-verified, i.e., a large number of foodies certify that the eatery is good and worth including.

Eateries and vendors who meet these criteria are featured on Talking Street’s pages.

There is an unparalleled magic to eating local and experiencing the culture of a city first-hand through its food. And our mission at Talking Street is to enable the discovery of these locally-loved eateries across locations, online, on your phone.

Thanks. Some interesting foodie stories coming your way.
