Mobile eatery


Mobile eateries have been around in Bangalore for a while. These eateries operate out of vehicles as seen above. They cook their stuff from some place, drive down to their regular area and set up shop. In the evenings, they just drive back to their homes. These eateries fulfil the need for cheap food (in Bangalore atleast) for the auto drivers, construction workers et al. They dish out pretty basic stuff at rock bottom prices.

When the police comes to drive them away, if at all, they just drive away. The cost of vehicles has gone down, especially ones like these - which can be obtained second hand or on short term "informal" lease. You can be pretty sure thats it is not a bank loan - its the unorganized sector at work.

But of course, probably part of the reason why they prepare food someplace else and get it someplace to sell! You dont want to see how they make it.
