Continuing on from our previous post “How Much Do People Pay For Food Around The World” we thought the next logical step would be to see the kind of food & variety available to you on the local street. No fancy restaurants & mammoth supermarkets – just literally from the field to your mouth as it were!
Whatever far flung corner of the globe that you come from or travel to, street food is a near universal constant. From the famed hot dog stands of New York, to the hawker markets of Singapore, street food has been lining the stomachs of everyone from Egyptians at breakfast time to late night revellers in China.
Some of it amazing, some of it is bizarre, and some of it will repeat on you the next day if you’ve had too many beers. We take a look at the people behind your late night kebab, the street food vendors.
Here are some of the most interesting street food vendors from around the world.
