Street Food From Around The World

Street food, although it can have a bad rep, is more true to local cuisine than the finest restaurants. This is what the people eat and we’ll tell you where it’s good. Every corner of the world and every culture has it’s own version of street food. Different from fast-food although it is speedy, street food is what the locals eat when they’re on the run and don’t have time to sit down for a meal or they need to satisfy their hunger when everything else is closed. One thing is for sure, street food is cheap, delicious and gives travellers a first-hand glance into what the people really eat.
