From New York to Thailand, we here at Yahoo Travel love street snacks. It’s the tastiest, safest prepared, and most democratic food you can eat regardless of where you’re traveling. Street meats are made by the people, for the people, and are prepared right in front of you.
Does this make you nervous? This meat is cooked at 1,000 degrees, ensuring the roasting of any bacterium that may cause you trouble.
We indulge in these low-cost delicacies every chance we get. Here are some of our favorites for some local street flavor:
Thailand: Small fried fish on a stick. They stack four pieces of fish onto a single skewer like a fish kebab. It is crispy, salty, and delicious.
India: Vegetarian samosas. Fried right in front of you! You can’t go wrong with the samosa.

Afghanistan: Bolani. Baked or fried vegan flatbread filled with potatoes, spinach, lentils, and pumpkin.
