There’s only one thing we love more than eating food, and that’s traveling around the world while eating some of the most delicious food at the same time. Yes, it’s a win-win situation for everyone! If you’re the kind of person that loves to explore what the culinary world has to offer, there are two ways to do this. On the one hand, you can make your way across the restaurants of the world and have a sit-down meal. On the other hand, you can explore bustling street markets and try out some of the tastiest street food the world has to offer. We know which one we’d rather choose…
Poutine from Canada
Poutine is the kind of food you’ll want again and again because it’s that delicious. Canadians have been eating this dish for centuries but is most prominent within French-speaking areas such as Quebec. So, what is this delicious dish? Poutine consists of chunky and crispy fries that are then covered in a gravy sauce and then topped off with cheese curds. You won’t have to search too far to find a food truck selling this stuff, because they (and the rest of the world) absolutely love it.
Banh mi from Vietnam
Vietnamese food is legendary across the world, and it’s fair to say that their street food is some of the best. Wandering the streets and waterways of Vietnam can get a little tiring, so you’ll probably want to eat some kind of substantial street food. Luckily, the Banh mi has got your back. This food is made using a Vietnamese baguette filled with a variety of meats. This will then be topped with vegetables, and sauces such as mayonnaise or chili sauce. While it may not sound revolutionary, the Asian flavors are just too powerful to be ordinary.
Arepa from Colombia
Colombia is the kind of place that you should definitely put on your bucket list. This country is crawling in culture, and the food is also out of this world. If you want to live like the locals during this trip, then you just have to try out the traditional Arepa. This patty is made using maize, salt, and water, and then cooked in a certain way. Many Colombians like to fry them, while others like to bake or boil them. Either way, there’s no doubt about the fact that they are delicious. Once you have your Arepa base, you then get the chance to fill or top the patty with toppings of your choice.
Gyros from Greece
If you’ve never had a gyro, then you seriously need to book your flights to Greece right away. This street food has made such an impression that it has since made its way across the globe, with street vendors in other countries trying to replicate the pita goodness. This street food consists of a pita flatbread, which is then filled with all kinds of yummy foods. Normally, this will include some kind of gyro meat, onions, tomatoes, tzatziki sauce, and fries. The whole thing is also spiced with a whole range of yummy Greek spices. It’s then wrapped into a cone-like shape, so you can eat it on the go. It’s truly something special.
