Food prices in India and Delhi - cafes and restaurants
Separately, I would like to highlight the main dish for a hungry traveler India - Thali, or set lunch, or just a meal.
This chic, puffed rice, one, two mini cakes and plenty of additions of pickles, sauces and soups mini in one dish.
The main feature of the meal - possibility of additives, including rice.
That is, in the local eateries for 0,62 - 0,94 USD = 40 - 60 INR (vegetarian option), you get almost the buffet !!!
Thali in various states of India
Tali in Rishikesh
Kerala - Cochin
Please note that, for example, in the Nordic states, you can ask additional payment for rice, but everything else (except cakes) should add for free.
Drinking water in India
As well as throughout Asia, one of the essential products is drinking water.
No conventional machines for pouring water on the streets. In public, the state and religious institutions sometimes there is water on tap.
You are advised to always carry your own glass or a bottle, I would not drink from reusable glassware public.
If you live a long time in one place, it is most advantageous to take a large bottle of 20 liters.
Price 0,94 - 1,25 USD = 60 - 80 INR plus deposit per container about 2,3 USD = 150. INR Alternatively, you can buy a 5 liter bottles fpr 0,78 - 1,09 USD = 50 - 70. INR
