I did get a lot of sweets and chai from street vendors and small snack shops in Bhogal, Janpath, New Friend's Colony, Chandni Chowk, etc. and they were all delicious -- and best of all, without any "side-effects."
It's the complacency that gets you and the mindset that a bit of glitter and higher price makes the food better than its street cousin. Bengali Market food is not always safe. That's where my son got sick.

I agree -- you never know where you can pick something up. The chaiwalas seems to have the filthiest stands, yet their product is probably the safest.

Where did your son get sick in Bengali Market? My cousin is good friends with the owner of the Bengali Sweets House, and we had dinner and dessert there one night; 3 of us were visiting from the States, and none of us got sick.
