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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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:)
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).
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!
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!
