Top 12 Street Food (1/2)

Vía un tweet de @graupix llegué a un interesante artículo llamado The World's Best Street Food: 12 Top Cities (by Frommer's), en el que hacen un ranking de los mejores sitios del mundo de comida en la calle o street food.


1. Bangkok (Tailandia): Chinatown; Nang Loeng Market (Nakhorn Sawan Road); the side streets around the backpackers' haven of Khao San Road; the Saochingcha neighborhood (near Bangkok City Hall); Soi Rambutri across from the Viengtai Hotel (known as Pad Thai Alley); and Aw Taw Kaw, across the Expressway from Chatuchak (or JJ) weekend market.

2. Tel Aviv (Israel): Along Ibn Gvirol Street, you can find dozens of food stands that serve falafel and shawarmas. Head to Frishman Street or the neighboring town of Ramat Gan for the best sabich. Although it's not technically a food stall, the street-side Abulafia Arab bakery in the port area of Jaffa doles out freshly baked savory pastries and pitas late at night.

3. Istanbul (Turquía): Karaköy and Ortakoy, two neighborhoods on the European side of Istanbul, have several lanes and markets lined with food stalls. Istiklal Caddesi in the Taksim neighborhood is a pedestrian-only street with plenty of food vendors.

4. Paris (Francia): By day, sidewalks in the Left Bank's Latin Quarter around Saint Michel get crowded with sandwich vendors selling baguettes. In the Marais, you'll want to try the falafel stands on Rue de Rosiers. At night, the air is filled with the aroma of freshly prepared crêpes, especially around Montparnasse, in the Latin Quarter, and near the nightclub areas.

5. Ciudad de Méjico (Méjico): Food stalls are found throughout downtown, with several on the south side of Plaza de Insurgentes, on Rio Sena between Reforma and Rio Papaloápan, and near the corner of Ayuntamiento and Aranda in Centro Histórico.

6. Hong Kong (China): Try the stalls around the various night markets, including Temple Street in Yau Ma Tei and Ladies' Market in Mong Kok on Tung Choi Street. In Tsim Sha Tsui, Hau Fook Street has several food stands. Mei Lun Street in Central and the laneways of Causeway Bay and Wan Chai are also crowded with food stalls.
