Itineraries – World’s best cities for street food
With traffic jams of trendy food trucks piling up in American cities, it’s easy to overlook the rich global history of street food. Dating back to the food hawkers of ancient Rome (with some centuries-old outdoor markets, like the Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech, still standing today), street food has long played an exciting role in cuisines throughout the world. Through emigration these dishes have been carried around the globe — like Turkish doner kebabs (sliced-to-order, slow-roasted meats), which are now available across Europe, and ever-popular Mexican tacos.
Mmmm street food is so tasty and cheap! Although you sometimes need an iron stomach.
