Love street food? Head to these five cities
There's no better feeling than standing by a narrow lane, jam-packed with people and vehicles (with that unending honking), and savoring some of the best foods that the world has to offer. Nothing beats the joy of having street foods. So, if travel is on your mind, and you love great food (who doesn't?), head to these five cities to satisfy your taste buds.
As if there were less reasons to go to the amazing Bangkok anyway, we bring you another. The most visited city in the world has some of the great lip-smacking street foods to offer. When there, head out and taste the sour Isaan sausages, crispy oyster omelets, and some piping hot curry. Yaowarat (Chinatown), Wang Lang Market, and Victory Monument are must-visits for food-lovers.
There is something strangely special about munching delicious food in Saigon. The city demands you to sit on a tiny plastic stool, get drenched in scorching weather, surrounded by a pool of people and vehicles all around, to get the taste of it. Vermicelli noodle soup with fish cakes are the real deal there. Bonus: Those sour and spicy condiments are to die for.
Street food in the Malaysian capital is known for its delectable mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian, and Portugese cuisines, served in all corners of the city, irrespective of the clock's mood. We suggest you to try out the overwhelming open bazaars like Jalan Alor, Sri Petaling, Taman Connaught. Do not miss out on Penang-style fruit rojak- a mix of fresh fruits, tofu, shrimp fritters.
Street food in the German capital is pretty sorted. When you are not munching on hand-cut spätzle and crispy potato pancakes, you will be seen indulging in the city's never-ending obsession with meats. Thankfully, the offerings are diverse. You can score some nice Turkish kebabs, or Beijing-style dumpling slinger. Also don't forget the Currywurst- chopped brats dipped in tangy ketchup and curry powder.
If your definition of Mexican food is limited to tacos, you are in for some surprise. Tacos are cliche- the streets of Mexico city have many mouth-watering dishes to offer. These include tamales, tlacoyos, sopes, huaraches, flautas, tortas, chilaquiles, chicharrones, et al. So, what really are you waiting for? Book your tickets, fly to these amazing destinations, and savor some unforgettable street food.
