The World in Street Food

Pav bhaji – India

Pav bhaji is a type of meal served throughout India and is a popular choice for busy office workers or people on the go. It’s basically a small amount of vegetables in a curry gravy, served with a small white bread roll to sop it up. There are tons of variations that include different vegetables, cheese, or spices, but the essential building blocks are always the same. It’s available from restaurants or street carts and has been popular since the 1850s because it’s quick, cheap, and filling.

Elote- Mexico

Mexico has a world-renowned street food scene — you can find anything from delicious ice cream to rich and meaty tacos served from vendors on the street, but nothing tops their version of grilled corn on the cob, known as elote. Elote is simply charcoal-grilled corn on the cob that’s been dressed in mayonnaise, chile powder, lemon juice, and cotija cheese. The tangy cheese, combined with the sweet corn kernels and cut with just a hint of spice from the chile powder makes this delicious dish completely addictive.
