You are going to want to try the street food. It is delicious most of the time. Look for the places that always have a crowd around them.
Traveling does not mean that everything is going to be perfect. You can get sick. Luggage will get lost. Learn to laugh those things off
The queues, Sarah, the queues!
Crowds are easier to tell outdoors.

I like to check the restaurants with big group tables either indoors or outdoors and the ones that people can come to and join in and out.
