One of the best things about visiting new parts of the world is getting to try the many different delicacies on offer and whilst, for some, fine dining is the only way to go, for most, food whilst travelling is all about street food!

For some, the opportunity to try something a little bit different whilst in another country is one of the most attractive things about travelling. Who wants to eat those foods which they frequent at home when the opportunity for something far more exotic is around every corner?
Street food is affordable, delicious and oozes culture and character of the country in which it’s famous. Whilst there’s nothing wrong with sitting down to a fancy meal when on your travels, you’ll struggle to beat the same feeling you get when queueing at a market stall or similar and eating fresh street food! It’s the perfect way to try something new and right at the top of many people’s travel-lists!
