The best street foods in the world are just not about the food, they are as much about the culture! When one stands on the street and order a local favourite, apart from the taste one also soaks in the local vibe and culture of the city.

Hot Dogs in New York City

New York’s favourite street food is now a world favourite too. It is quick and comforting. A soft hot dog bun with a frankfurter, smeared with the classic mustard, ketchup and relish combination or more experimental ones with mac n cheese or kimchi, this city has the best version of all of them.
