What makes street food so appealing? Perhaps it is the fact that it is available anywhere in the world and reflects the local area’s culture and cuisine in a cheap, delicious and fun way.
It is also fast and convenient but bursting with a distinctive quality that is rarely available anywhere else. The rise in popularity of street food has created competition that has pushed standards high and kept costs down.
