An undeniably fun part of travel is discovering the local cuisine, and what better way to do so than to try your luck with some of the regional street food? Here are the favorites from around the world, and where you can expect to find them.
Fans of Mexican food always say that, when they go to Mexico, they experience Mexican cuisine like no other right on the streets. On top of the best tacos of your life, though, you’ll want to try the elotes, or roasted corn on the cob, often served with a variety of toppings, including cheese, spices and mayonnaise. You can find dozens of stalls selling it on the streets of Mexico City.
Head to Berlin, Germany, for your first taste of currywurst. The sausage-tomato sauce-curry powder mixture is served alongside fries or bread and is a favorite once the bars let out. For this reason, you’ll want to look for one of the many stalls that set up shop in the city’s nightlife districts.
If you happen to be in Nepal, you can’t miss the Nepali version of a dumpling, otherwise known as momos. Filled with meat or veggies or a little of each, momos are often served alongside a variety of dipping sauces, typically tomato-based chutneys. You can get them steamed or fried, and sometimes served in broth.
You’ve not had an empanada until you’ve had one in Argentina. Much like the street foods of other cultures, empanadas can be ordered savory or sweet, with a variety of fillings, from meat and veggies to fruits and chocolate.
If you’re looking for an interesting dessert you won’t find anywhere else, enjoy some halo-halo in the Philippines, a popular street food that helps beat the heat. Similar to ice cream, as the concoction is made from shaved ice and evaporated milk, the toppings are anything but average. Try your creamy, frozen dessert with a hearty topping of boiled beans or yams.
