Best Street Foods From Around the World

Ah, lunch time! Forget fancy restaurants and fast food joints – the good stuff’s on the street. If you’re adventurous (and have cast-iron stomach), Lonely Planet has got the list of the best street food in the world.

Take this one, for instance:

Bánh Mi, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
As you cruise the elegant French colonial vestiges of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), stop off at a streetside stall for the Vietnamese take on its former colonisers’ simple salad sandwich – heavenly bánh mi is a piece of history wrapped in a baguette. Tender chunks of grilled pork swaddled inside fluffy French bread combine with Vietnamese mayonnaise, coarsely chopped pickled daikon radish and carrot, together with a touch of eye-watering chilli sauce, to create the best East-meets-West moment you’ll ever taste. Close your eyes, take a bite and be transported back to the grand imperial days of old Saigon.
