The food is probably not what you expect it to be.
My first time in India, I ate without putting too much thought into it and left without a single digestive disaster. Indulge with caution and exercise the normal precautions of drinking bottled water. Indian cuisine is not just curries, rice, and breads. There is an extensive amount of dishes to choose from, most of which you probably haven't heard of. It usually comes as a surprise, but I have stumbled on Irish pubs, fancy Pan-Asian restaurants, European cafes, and vegan eateries all while traveling India.
