If you’re a regular visitor to these pages, you’ve probably seen a little of our coverage of the recent struggles to keep street food a part of the culture in Los Angeles. Though Menupages doesn’t have a Los Angeles blog (yet), we pay attention because an attack on street food there could be a harbinger to other attacks on street food in the United States. And we love street food, be it tacos, bacon-wrapped hot dogs or just good old pretzels and roasted nuts.
That’s why we were thrilled when Epicurious directed us to this lengthy article in Concierge.com: The World’s Best Street Food. From safe stalwarts like Mexican tacos and Vietnamese Banh Mi to culinary adventures like Moroccan sheep’s head, we found this in-depth guide to be some of the best in armchair traveling/eating.
Epi-Log’s James Oliver Cury takes a shot at it for not including pizza or kebabs, but c’mon, the freaking Lonely Planet will direct you to those things. Guidebooks tend to skimp on things like tripe sandwiches, however, which is why we’re thankful for the weird and subjective nature of this list.
