Favorite Street Food Around the World — Part 1

street food

Food and travel are one of the best life experiences. Although we liked the fine cooking and elaborate meals in the hotel, the food exploration on the street stalls (especially the authentic snacks on the field journey) was often amazing and memorable.

Through food, we can learn more about the history, culture and customs of a place. By tasting street food, we are not only free to explore local snacks, but also to explore the essence of local culture.

For those who have the same feelings as author, we naturally praise the wonderfulness of food from time to time. But there are also some people who think that food is only used to fill their stomachs. Now along with the author to collect those delicious street stalls, which not only meet our appetite, but also a soul-touch experience.

1, Korean Street Food

 

Korea is known for very many great things such as Kpop, Kdramas and mostly, delicious food. There are so many amazing foods in Korea, but street food is definitely not only tasting food but experience of the culture. Hope you guys enjoy this Korean Street Food video!!

2, Philippines Street Food

 

Aling Sosing’s is often considered to be one of the best carinderias, or local Filipino food restaurants, in all of Manila. The crowd that shows up to eat lunch here everyday reinforces the fact that they are no doubt one of the spots you want to be in Manila, if you’re a food lovers. When I was eating in Manila, eating at Aling Sosing’s was certainly among the best local Filipino food restaurants that I tried.

Aling Sosing’s is a very typical type of local street food restaurant, sitting on the corner of a street, near to Makati. Just like most carinderias, all the food is prepared ahead of time, and sits at the front of the restaurant. When you arrive to order, you just simply pick and choose the different dishes that you want to order, find a table, and they will bring you the dishes to your table. Additionally, some of the famous dishes to eat at Aling Sosing’s are off the grill, and you’ll smell the wonderful aroma of the grilling meats the entire time you’re eating, and it’s fantastic.

Ying and I arrived about 11 am on a weekday, and luckily we beat the main lunch traffic, but just barely. There were tables available when we arrived, but as soon as we sat down and order it filled up. Sof if you eat at Aling Sosing’s Carinderia you might want to arrive before the main lunch rush. Additionally, some of the Filipino food dishes sell out fast, and they don’t cook them again for the day – once they are sold out, they are done for the day.

Here are the main Filipino dishes I ordered:
Pinakbet – A stew of mixed vegetables, oftentimes flavored with shrimp paste. This was the best versions of pinakbet I’ve ever had.
Inihaw na tilapia – The grilled tilapia is quite well known at this restaurant. It was simple and delicious.
Inihaw na liempo – The grilled pork belly is one of their signature dishes, and it’s every bit as good and smoky as it looks.
Kaldereta – A Filipino food I love so much is kaldereta, a goat stew, mainly because I love goat so much. It was oily, but really good.
Adobong pusit – I saw the squid the pot and decided to try it out. It was a little on the sweet side.
Pork BBQ – Fresh off the grill, Ying and I ordered some of their pork bbq. The pork was tender and lathered in bbq, it was amazing.

Total price – 640 PHP ($12.90)

If you’re looking for a local Filipino restaurant in Manila that I think serves some of the best Filipino food, Aling Sosing’s is a restaurant you’re going to want to check out. The food is awesome, the setting and positive atmosphere is refreshing, and the constant smoke from the grill will keep your nose happy and wanting more!

Aling Sosing’s Carinderia
Address: Palanan 5819 Zobel Roxas, Palanan Makati City, Philippines
Open hours: 8 am – 6 pm from Monday – Saturday . 

3, Thai Street Food

 

The area around Haroon Mosque (มัสยิดฮารูณ), in the Charoen Krung area of Bangkok, is a great place to find Halal Thai street food (food cooked permissible with Muslim / Islamic traditions). In this video I’m taking you on a Halal Thai street food in Bangkok – we’re going to eat some amazing roti roti breakfast, and some of my personal favorite curry – gaeng gari (แกงกะหรี่).

Roti Mataba Khun Mai (โรตีมะตะบะ คุณใหม่) – This is the first place we stopped for breakfast to eat Thai Muslim style roti. Ying and I split a sweet roti, and a couple of mataba gai (มะตะบะไก่), chicken stuffed roti. Both were excellent, and made hot and fresh right in front of us.
Total price – 175 THB ($5.35)

Khao mok (ข้าวหมก) is Thai biryani, and this was actually more of a Burmese style. It rolled down the alley right where we were eating the mataba, and we had to try it. As we were ordering though, the family that lives in the house there in the gate, had watched our videos and invited us into their house to eat – this was completely random and unplanned. The family was extremely nice, and we ate the biryani in their home, and also tried a few of their extra dishes.
Price – 90 THB ($2.75) per plate

Gaeng gari (แกงกะหรี่) – This is probably my favorite dish of this entire Halal Bangkok Thai street food tour. Gaeng gari (แกงกะหรี่) of this style is typically a Muslim version of this amazing curry. It’s packed with spice, and what I love most about it are the curry leaves that give the curry its unique and strong flavor.
Total price – 110 THB ($3.36)

Gaeng Hindu (แกงฮินดู) – There’s a curry street food stall as you enter Haroon Mosque (มัสยิดฮารูณ) that you don’t want to miss. They have a curry that they called “Gaeng Hindu (แกงฮินดู)” or an Indian style curry. It looked like Thai massaman curry, but it didn’t taste at all like massaman curry. This curry was amazing, packed full of spicy, and not sweet at all like massaman. It’s a curry you don’t want to miss.
She wouldn’t allow us to pay. Thank you for the food!

Khanom soyi (ขนมโซยี) – This is the original version of this Thai Muslim dessert pudding. It was interesting, not my favorite.
Price – 20 THB ($0.61)

Kuay teow bok (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวบก) – This is a Thai street food dish you won’t find often, it included wide rice noodles and herbs, with shrimp, chicken, and peanuts, with a sweet chili sauce. The sauce was too sweet for me, but I liked the freshness of the dish.
Price – 40 THB ($1.22)

Khanom buang (ขนมเบื้อง) – Finally to end this Thai street food Halal tour, we ate khanom buang (ขนมเบื้อง). Most of the ingredients are vegetables and it’s really a refreshing and light mixture that all goes into it. It was a great way to end this food tour, and I was stuffed at the end.
Price – 40 THB ($1.22)

You’ll find Halal Thai street food around the Haroon Mosque (มัสยิดฮารูณ), especially on Friday from about 10 am – 2 pm.

4,Malaysian Street Food

 

Malaysian Street Food in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is the best! A multicultural display of extremely delicious specialty food is available for eating. Within Malaysian street food, there is Malay Street food, Chinese Street Food, and Indian street food all available to try and the options are endless.Street food around the world is different everywhere, but what is so special about Malaysia is how multicultural everything is and how unique the cooking and food culture is. So for my 3rd trip to Malaysia, we came for a Kuala Lumpur food tour. Chuchu and I decided to travel to Malaysia on a 4 day eating vacation to eat as much street food and local specialties as we could.

One thing that we both fell in love with about Malaysian cuisine, is that you could really spend a lifetime eating here tasting the local varieties of Chinese food, Indian Food, and Malay Food. With our limited amount of time on this trip, we ate non stop to sample all of the Kuala Lumpur food available.

5,Mexican Street Food

 

Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico – Merida is an a beautiful, well organized, clean, and friendly city in Mexico, and the capital of the Yucatan State. We only had one full day in Merida on this trip, and so we wanted to make the most of it. I’m taking you on a one day Mexican street food and attractions tour of Merida!

Taqueria La Lupita – In the morning we first headed to a local market to eat breakfast. Taqueria La Lupita is a very cool breakfast spot where you can eat local Mexican Yucatan food. We tried some tacos de conchinta pibil, panuchos, relleno negro, and mondongo kabi. The panuchos were the winner.
Total price – 238 MXN ($12.64) for all

Maiz, Canela y Cilantro – It’s always good to have breakfast number 2, and this wasn’t a street food spot, but a nice cafe, and great for families. The reason I wanted to come here was to try their version of Huevos Motuleños, a Mexican egg dish originating from a small town of the same name not far away. It was a stunner.
Total price – 300 MXN ($15.94) for all

Plaza Grande and Horse Ride – Moving on to some of the sightseeing and attractions in Merida, we walked around Plaza Grande and took a horse ride to see some sights around the city. It was wonderful, to enjoy Merida from a horse carriage.

Mango – 15 MXN ($0.80) – One our way to the market, we stopped for a mango. Always delicious!

Mercado Lucas de Galvez – For lunch we headed to one of the main markets in the center of Merida called Mercado Lucas de Galvez. After walking around for a while we went upstairs and found a couple friendly aunties who cooked up a storm. We tried their, mole, relleno negro again, and sopa de Lima, which was the ultimate dish of the day for me.
Total price – 300 MXN ($15.94) for all

Restaurant y Cockteleria Tikinxic II – Finally for dinner I had really wanted to try a Mayan fish dish called tikin xic before leaving the Yucatan, so we searched out a Mexican seafood restaurant to try. It was a little outside of the center of the city, but it was pretty good.
Total price – 758 MXN ($40.27) for all

This was a fantastic day of Mexican street food in Merida. Merida is one of the most pleasant cities to explore in Mexico! More street food can be subscribed to Mark Wiens.
