PLACES that sell ‘street food’ do not have ‘street prices’, it has been confirmed.
The Institute for Studies found that while places selling ‘street food’ are absurdly expensive, pubs that claim to be selling ‘World Class Grub’ are actually very cheap.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “You’d think it would be the other way round.”
Nikki Hollis, who runs an Indian street food ‘pop-up’ in London, said: “The food we sell is exactly like the food you might buy on the streets of Delhi.
“Obviously there it would cost you pennies but here it costs much, much more. You’re paying the extra to be able to say you’re eating ‘street food’.”
She added: “Idiots think that’s cool. And they have money. It’s just fantastic.”
