What's the challenge?
To eat street food.
What are you afraid of and why?
For me, being sick is not an option. So I'm afraid of anything that seems unsanitary, sketchy or filthy (first time ever using that word btw).
How was the experience?
I come from a country where eating on the street is a big no-no unless you are very drunk after a party or something. In Venezuela, infected water related diseases are common. So, I basically grew up ignoring street vendors. In New York, street food is very popular and apparently everybody eats it. I've been utterly skeptical about it, but I finally decided to try it and face the fear of getting sick. I went to "The Halal Guys" on 53rd and 6th Ave, according to Foursquare that's the most popular one in the Midtown area. I must admit the food was delicious, super cheap and I didn't feel bad at all afterwards. I'm not going to go crazy over street food but I'll consider it more often than not!
