Get inspired by these delicious dishes….

One of the best things you can do when you travel the world is to sample the fantastic world cuisine – and there’s nothing like hot and fresh street food.

And the good news is that even though we can’t currently travel due to restrictions imposed by the Covid 19, we can still feel at home in a foreign land and be inspired by the most beautiful adventures.

From the food markets of São Paulo to sampling a stroopwafel on a Dutch canal, these are some of the best culinary experiences the world has to offer.


At StraitsKitchen, you can enjoy gourmet Malaysian food.

Singaporean cuisine dates back to the 1800s, when entrepreneurs from all over the Malay archipelago came to Singapore to make a living.

Many of them set up food stalls, and Singapore’s cuisine is now one of the most varied in the world – you’ll find Chinese, Indian, Indonesian and many other dishes.

At the end of the 20th century, the government began building hawkers that can be found all over Singapore, from the Little India Tekka Centre to the Newton Food Centre. Visit the StraitsKitchen at the Grand Hyatt Singapore, where you can sample hundreds of dishes prepared in theatrical kitchens specialising in different types of cuisine.

Some of the must-do dishes include Hainan chicken rice (steamed or fried chicken over white rice with chili sauce), hokkien cro (fried shrimp with egg buttons served with pork, squid and fish pastry) and satay kebab (grilled chicken, pork, beef or lamb served with peanut sauce).

Lima, Peru

Lima has one of the best street cuisines in South America. Ceviche – pieces of raw fish dried in lemon juice – is a favorite, followed by picarones (pumpkin and sweet potato fritters drizzled with syrup) and mazamorra morada, a sweet, rotten, jagged treat made from purple corn.

The most popular places to eat are Al Toke Pez in the Surquillo district, a no-frills restaurant where owner Toshi serves six types of ceviche, and Picarones Mary near Miraflores for delicious picarones.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The street food scene in Amsterdam is severely underestimated. At the top of your list are raw herring, served in herring barrels, or herring carts, in town (ask for take-out herring barrels), stroopwafels (a layer of caramel between the wafers) and croquettes (meat and potato croquettes eaten with mustard).

A good place to order the latter is one of the FEBO vending machines in town. You’ll also find delicacies with caasufle (fried cheese) and a variety of sausages.

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Foodies shouldn’t leave São Paulo without paying homage to the city’s street food at the Mercado Municipal de São Paulo, a food court with hundreds of vendors. Start at the Hocca Bar, where you can enjoy one of the city’s famous ham, mustard and cheese sandwiches or bacalhau pasteis – salted cod fritters.

Elsewhere, you can find coxinhas (deep-fried dough balls with different fillings, chicken being the most popular) as well as pastels, which are delicate pieces of dough with meat, cheese, shrimp or sweet fillings such as guava paste, banana and chocolate.

Osaka, Japan

Osaka is famous for its culinary delights, and one of the best places to visit is Shinsaibashi Suji, a covered street known for its animatronic fish panels and its selection of amazing dishes.

Food is sold in small kiosks and vending machines in restaurants where customers order and pay before entering. Okonomiyaki (spicy pancakes with grated cabbage) and takoyaki (an appetizer stuffed with octopus) are a must.

Don’t forget to visit Osaka’s famous depachiki (dining halls in the basements of department stores).

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh offers street food, from beef broth to spicy crab soup. And then there’s bánh mi, an Asian sandwich.

The Vietnamese made their mark on the French baguette by adding chili pepper and other local ingredients. The best shop is Banh Mi Huynh Hoa on Le Thi Rieng, where you’ll pay around 80 pence for a warm and fresh baguette filled with goodies.

Nuremberg, Germany

What makes Nuremberg a city where people eat in the streets? Just one word: Sausage. In 2003. Nürnberger Rostbratwurst was the first sausage to be entered in the European register of protected geographical indications (PGI).

Nürnberger Bratwurst must be produced within the city limits according to the original recipe, which contains pork, sheep’s casing, marjoram and other spices.

Hundreds of sausage stands throughout Nuremberg sell sausages as thick as your finger. The most popular version is the delicious Hattrick Drei im Weggla – three sausages in a loaf.
