    What is your favorite street food?

    I am looking for food sold from carts and stalls and possibly food trucks.  Food trucks would be at the upper end of the price range I associate with street food.

    I personally love hotdogs, nachos and funnel cakes.

      Nachos are great, but I usually find them in bars.  I can see the potential as street food.

    Philly! Preferable with chicken and LOTS of all that pepper/onions/cheese/else stuff!

    Equal choice: Donner Kebab! Turkish sandwiches! Also done by some Greek places in similar style.

    Equal choice: Hispanic food of any kind!

      There are not a lot of Philly places in Dallas, but some of the chains over charge for something they call a Philly.

      There is a hot dog cart I sometimes eat at when I am downtown.  Somehow his stuff just tastes better.

    I am a lucky one when it comes to street food. I live about 5 miles due north of Tijuana, Baja Norte, Mexico. Taco Erica is about 10 feet off the main drag in the community of Rosarito. Probably a 15 by 5 foot shack with a no water kitchen and Grill. Carnitas, Carne Asada, Ejos y Cabezas, fish and chicken are all on the menu. This place looks so bad, dogs don't eat there. The sly old fox that owns it put two girls through USC off that cart, and while I have not been there since the tourist expansion of the last decade, I hear it still thrives. Besides we now have Tamale vendors that walk down our street, and they have the best pelotes. Wow that makes me hungry, guess I'ii go on down in back of the 7-eleven and get  some of Maria's tortas, off of her charcoal power cart.

      Okay, that made me hungry too.  Sometimes I think the smaller the operation the better the food is.

      Best place in Abilene was some tiny, greasy looking place that was the size of my bathroom. But you got a giant burrito for a $1.50. That thing was so big you had to hold it with both hands and it weight a ton. They are closed now.

    REAL corn dogs, not that junky, frozen, "pre-made" crap. The ones they actually make on site.

    Yes, okay, they are junky anyway because they're considered junk food. You know what I meant. LOL!

      Leroyworldposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Oh I do understand.  Freshly fried corn dogs with some mustard.  State Fair heaven.

    Pepinos! Hands down my favorite, especially in the summer.

    1. Leroyworld profile image59
      Leroyworldposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I am not familiar with pepinos.  Are they a type of melon?

    2. nikkiraeink profile image60
      nikkiraeinkposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      They are cucumbers with Chile powder and lemon juice. So good!

    3. unpretentiousview profile image60
      unpretentiousviewposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yes!  Pepinos are cucumbers, for those of you unfamiliar.  They are especially great with lemon or lime and paprika with a little bit of cayenne pepper  OR doused in rice vinegar salt and pepper, maybe garlic, onion or a little red chili for taste.

      Thanks guys!  I will be on the look out for some pepinos.  Someone has to sell them in Dallas.

    I live in Florida. We have "health food" street food along with the rest. I like a veggie burger sort of thing served in fresh pita bread with a virtual salad in it. It is topped with a handful of alfalfa sprouts and miso. I get a "Vanilla Rush" smoothie to go with it. You can be tired and hungry from a morning of surfing, eat this lunch, and surf until dark. It is fast and slow burning food energy.

      I would mind seeing a picture of that.

    mmmmm, hands down, soft pretzels with mustard. Every time I visit NYC I make a bee line for a cart and have at least one hot pretzel.
    Second choice would be chestnuts. I love the smokey smell they give off; you know a chestnut cart is near before you can even see them.

      I have never seen a chestnut cart; but,  I do like pretzels.

    Redbones BBQ in Boston does it for me. I love BBQ and Redbones does it the best. Street food at it's best.

      Boston BBQ?  Is it pork?  What kind of sauce?  Mustard based or vinegar?   There are a lot of BBQ places in Texas.  The best ones are outside of cities like Dallas, unfortunately.  I would love to do BBQ road trip across the US.

      leroy64posted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Thank you.  I like finding out about new foods andI have never heard of Phooska, or at least I don't remember it.  I will be looking it up.

    Tacos are always my go-to.  Yuca's Tacos on Hillhurst are a little pricey, but they have been around for over 30 years and are consistent.  One of my favorite little trucks can be found usually on Saturdays late at Western and Santa Monica in the gas station parking lots. My favorite stand-o-ramas are in Compton off of Greenleaf surrounding the East side of Compton, now El Camino college.  You have to hunt, though.  That's part of the fun.

    1. Leroyworld profile image59
      Leroyworldposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Oh yes hunting is part of the fun.  I am curious what other people have found.  Tacos seem to be very popular everywhere.

    Hand dipped corn dogs.

    Beer battered cheese curds (it's a Wisconsin thing).

    And in Portland, OR, there is a food truck food court, that takes up a whole entire city block, and you can get anything from hot dogs, to sushi (all kinds, not just rolls), to other various Asian food like terriyaki and Russian food, and even Eastern European foods...

    And here in my area, there is a cart that has tacos and Mexican food.

      It's a favorite around here...  I think everyone in S.E. Wisconsin looks forward to them, and they're sold at vendors as well as festivals and fairs.

    In Peru, street vendors sell picarones in the early evening. They're Peruvian-style fried donuts made with sweet potato and pumpkin. Maybe I'll write a hub on it someday!
