What is your favorite street food?
Where can it be found? (image by WorldAccent)
That would have to be churros. I found some in Portugal, I think it was in Porto.
The taste I can't forget are the 'marquesitas' you find in Merida, Mexico. They're thin crepe-like pastries that turn crisp and crunchy when they are rolled into a tube shape and cooled just a bit. They're filled with yummy things like shredded cheese or Nutella, among other things. They are delicious, and addictive. The parks are filled with stands (carts) where you can buy them freshly made, and you can also get them on the streets or in one of the many plazas around the city.
I would say it's Indian Panipuri. By far the cheapest & most delicious Indian Street food.
My favorite street foods are savory empanadas (with beef, carrots, etc.) and paletas (coconut!).
Hi! vespawoolf, my favourite street food is banana cue, roasted peanuts and cooked sweetcorn cobs with butter (yummy) if I am in the Philippines. Here in England it would be fish and chips. I just love my food.
For me, I'll have to go with praline pecans for the sweet tooth. But it's a hard choice! And there's nothing like a Philadelphia pretzel with mustard!
I'll try almost anything, but my favorite is a bratwurst brotchen (hard roll) from street vendors in Germany with lots of mustard. Nothing better!
Anything from the street vendors in Marrakech. In the evening the Medina fills with tourists and locals. There's a whole section of the plaza with a dozen vendors cooking fresh, delicious food such as kebap, fish, and tajine. Rimming the food sellers are people like this young man selling fresh-squeezed orange juice. All of it is fresh and so flavorful in a way the food trucks here in the States could never achieve.
Marrakech sounds like a food lover's paradise! I also enjoy fresh-squeezed orange sold on the streets here in Peru. The vendor pours it into a bag, pops in a straw and voila! Orange juice to go.
There are many street foods I like but I would have to say a good tamale. The best I've found in Mexico so far have been in the Cancun area. The tamale sellers usually come out in the evenings with their steaming pots on the street. Inside you find little packets of corn meal mixed with meats and spices, sometimes mole the 20+ ingredient Mexican traditional sauce that includes chocolate!, and sometimes even tomato sauce, all rolled up in corn husks and steamed/boiled in the pot. They are really inexpensive, very tasty and very filling!
There are a lot of interesting answers here, but I have been most of these places and have to tell you that the best street food is acarajé, an African fritter made with black eyed pea batter. The fritters are boiled in dendê oil, then filled with shrimp, a sauce made of okra, and topped with chopped green tomatoes (very fine, about 5mm).
My mouth is watering!!!
The Panipuri and Papdi Chaat, are my favorite street food, especially of Delhi. They are mouth watering, refreshing and good for digestion too.
You have to be old like me to get the essence. There was an really cool actor named Andy Griffith. He played a role -- Matlock, a wily old ethical trial attorney. And he would eat outside on the street of the Courthouse and savor. Hot dogs.
Exotic is awesome and I sometimes crave an ojos y cabezas from Mx. or a tripe Pho' from VN or schtrudel or baklava. But Hot dogs are the one food that are best on the street.
Love to eat warm, soft pretzels from city street vendors...in NY, and even Boston.
Also enjoy the burrito "bar" at Downtown Crossing in Boston when I am working downtown. :0)
My favorite street foods are kwek kwek and one day old .Kwek kwek are hard boiled duck egg covered with thick batter mixture then deep fried .Best with white vinegar ,chopped garlic ,chopped onion and little bit salt and pepper . One day old are also duck egg but already formed chicks ,but little bit undevelope . You take out of shell , steame and then deep fry .
Roasted chestnuts and boiled corn on the early evening Autumn's Vienna streets, the classical music fills the air, the street lights dimly reflects on passers by holding the hot paper bags like treasures from the Gods. The red and yellow leaves are gently falling of the one hundred old chestnut trees around you while you close your eyes tasting one hot one on your tounge and you feel just right:)
We don't have street food where I live unless you count road kill.
I wrote a hub on a roadkill recipe, but they made me change it to small critter recipe. I do insist that the stable's flat nose shovel be hosed or at least dipped before spatulating the thing.
I like many of the previously mentioned, but my favorite is alcapurria. It's the favorite street food here in Puerto Rico.
What is alcapurria like? (A beautiful word, by the way)
It is grated green banana and yautia (a root vegetable common in the Caribbean) fritter stuffed with seasoned ground beef. In some beach kiosks you can also find alcapurrias de jueyes (stuffed with crab).
Fried fritters are always yummy and the island version sounds even better.
Po-boys, I'm a New Orleans native. But traveling thru Cali I come to love Churros.
Fish 'n' chips from Blackpool - apparently one of the healthiest fast foods to buy from fast food shops. Chinese fast food is one of the worst for food poisoning in the UK - all down to the rice apparently!
It is kabab. This comes in a cylindrical shape around a stick. It is had with some kind of liquid that tastes sour.
Hmm, I would say Hot Dogs with mustard, ketchup and carmelized onions, jacket potatoes, mini donuts and pretzels. Yum! You got me hungry with this question
Chris Achilleos, I'm off to get a hot dog with carmelized onions now! Mini donuts aren't a bad idea, either. : )
If you're going to put ketchup on a hot dog, watch out for Dirty Harry! See "Ketchup on Hot Dogs" by SpartucusJones for details of this warning.
Tapiocas in Brazil!
It's just like a tortilla (made with cassava flour) that is fried, and then they put whatever filling you want in it. It can be either sweet or savoury, and things like ham, cheese, chicken, coconut or Nutella can be added. They then close it like an omelette, so it's like a half-circle. My favourite combo is shrimp and cheese - sounds strange, but amazing.
I've recently moved to northeastern Brazil, and I've quickly become addicted to them. Vendors can be found everywhere, and they're pretty inexpensive, and the vendors always stuff them with the filling. I would definitely recommend them
1. People’s choice of favourite street foods differs depending on the difference of personal taste, culture and even country. Personally I prefer chicken sticks and kabab. But here I will discuss a few street foods that are famous in different parts of the world. This will help you to think about street foods in a new dimension:
Vada Pav of India is a very popular street food. Most of the people visiting India have highly complemented this food.
Eating rice and chicken on the street, isn’t it a great feeling? Singapore chicken rice will give you this ecstatic feeling.
Mexican quesadillas are a treat to eat. In fact according to many it is the best street food all around the world.
Signara of Bangladesh is a good street food. Also it is very cheap. You can get even 20+ pieces in just $1!
Egypt is mainly famous for Pyramids. But the sugar cane juice of Egypt is a great street food.
These are only a few. There are many other good and quality street foods. You can choose anyone according to your taste. After all tasting different foods in different cultures is itself a great experience!
Fish bought at a harbour accompanied with fries. Love fresh fish caught that day! Served with a salad is also an option.

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.

Just curious if any fellow hubbers have dealt with or know of anyone who's had a sudden loss of memory specifically to typing. My Mom, (who's been typing 8hrs. a day for the past 20yrs.) had gone on vacation and returned to work completely unable to type how she use to, having to now look at the...
