Yes, high-class restaurants are a must on any trip around the world, but what really brings out the flavours of a place is the street food made by locals. Street food is the heart of any culture’s cuisine which provides a quick snack as well as a heavy meal for your belly. We cannot compare the street food on the basis of presentation because what they really stand for is the rich flavours and lip-smacking crunch. Here is a list of our top picks for the street food you must not miss while you are at these destinations.
Vada Pav, India
Ever felt like eating a veg burger? Seems like a very odd choice when you can eat some meat. Vada Pav will take only a single bite to change your mind. A speciality of Mumbai, vada pav is a type of burger(Pav) with spicy potato patty and a lot of gun powder (a red eatable powder) between two buns soaked in butter. There is another variant of this cuisine known as Pav Bhaji which suits anyone’s taste buds and is equally satisfying.
Chicken Rice, Singapore
You can try a lot of fried rice dishes around the world, but chicken rice( also known as Hainanese rice) from Singapore is nothing like what you have ever tried. It is also the quickest way to start an argument on who serves the best chicken rice in the town. People are proud of their own add ons to the traditional recipe, and you cannot stop with trying at just one shop. The dish has poached chicken served over fried rice, which can be your breakfast, lunch, snack, as well as dinner.
Jerk Chicken, Jamaica
Boston Bay, Jamaica is the place and home for the best-grilled chicken you can get. You can find large BBQ through the streets grilling mouth-watering jerk chicken. The trick behind making jerk chicken is to smoke it rather grilling and has a ton of spices rubbed over the chicken. Some of the ingredients which makes it special are Scotch bonnet peppers, allspice berries, green onions, and fresh ginger. Served with rice, peas and red stipe beer makes it the best thing you can have on the beaches of Jamaica.
