Photo Friday – top 10 street foods around the world

One of the main reasons that people travel somewhere completely new, is to find and discover exotic cuisine. Every culture has it, a dish that you can find cheaply on the side of the road, that locals tuck into with relish and abandon and leave you thinking “Gosh that looks interesting I wonder what will happen if I put that in my mouth”, right before you do so and your tongue turns into a 60′s roller disco of flashing lights, groovy rhythms and jamming funkily.

So, to whet your appetite for our #foodietravels hangout this afternoon with Niamh Shields, here are 10 of our favourite street foods from across the globe. Interesting question: have you ever noticed that a lot of the world’s favourite street foods contains chips?
