Who doesn’t love street snacks? From the US to the streets of Thailand, street food can be some of the the most democratic, tastiest, and safest foods that is made in front of you. Regardless of where you’re heading to, you can get street food while traveling to many different countries.
Does this make you nervous? Some meat is cooked at 1000 degrees that ensures proper roasting of any bacteria that could possibly cause you any problems.
Most of us try to indulge in these low-cost delicacies whenever we get a chance to give a treat to our taste buds. Here are some of the street flavors you should definitely try:
Try Bolani. This one is a baked or fried vegan flatbread filled with potatoes, lentils, spinach, and pumpkin. Afghanis are also nut lovers – especially pine nuts. They sell them from huge wheelbarrows by the pounds or baggie.
Short Eats are seen everywhere and are considered ubiquitous for the 4 p.m snack serving. This food is enjoyed by the local Maldivians. Available in different varieties, short eats are stuffed with mince of tuna and super-spicy Maldivian chilies.
The word, Rojak means ‘an awesome mixture’ and it is worth believing that it is really an awesome mixture. It is made by blending egg, meat, pastry, and peanut sauce. All this is bundled up in a plastic bag. Peanut sauce is the ketchup of the Malaysian market. Just try sticking a fork in it.
Choripan is a perfect mixture of Argentina’s Latin and European cultures. It is a barbecued sausage wrapped in a crusty toasted French bread.
What’s so good about street food is that it is cost effective, freshly prepared, and highly convenient for you if you are not in a mood to prepare food at home. The ambiance may be a busy street with horns honking but the thrill and excitement of eating such yummy and quick food on the street is incomparable to a candle light dinner.
