Trevor and Christine’s favourite street food is Khao Soi from Thailand:

Khao Soi

Khao Soi is a noodle soup, found mostly in Northern Thailand and Laos.  It is made with meat, usually pork, in a spicy broth with mustard greens, shallots, chillies, and lime.  Then there is both boiled egg noodles and crispy, deep-fried noodles on top to give it a bit of crunch.  The best bowl of khao soi we had, without a doubt, was from a street vendor just outside the north gate of the old city of Chiang Mai.  The broth was incredibly flavourful, the meat was tender, the different types of noodles added amazing texture, and the lime and greens added a bit of freshness to cut through the richness of the rest of the dish.  It was amazing, and we have been dreaming about it since leaving Thailand.

Handel, Carmen & Charles’s favourite street food is Mango with Sticky Rice from Thailand:

Mango with Sticky Rice

It consists of a slice of mango, sticky (glutinous) rice topped with sesame seed, and coconut milk (with sugar, salt, and tapioca starch). At first, I thought It was weird because we never eat a fruit with a rice. As soon as we took a bite, it was mouthwatering! The taste of mango, sticky rice, and coconut milk blend so well, and it is best eaten when warm. We always eat this every time we go to Bangkok or Phuket. Nowadays, it can be easily found in several street food stalls, traditional or upscale restaurants, and top hotels in Thailand.

Win Shi’s favourite street food is Ice and fire dumpling (rice balls) from Taiwan:

Ice and fire dumpling (rice balls)

When tourists talk about Taiwan’s night markets, bubble tea, stinky tofu, oyster omelette and fried chicken fillet were always mentioned. What I am about to introduce is a rather not well-known to foreigners but a big hit to the local Taiwanese – Ice and Fire Dumplings! It is a dessert with fresh out of pot hot handmade dumplings, served on a bed of shaved ice, topped with sweet osmanthus syrup. It was an amazing experience with this hot and cold dessert with a floral scent! I think this Ice and Fire Dumplings should be given an international spotlight for its yumminess and creativity!

Daniel’s favorite street food is Mysore Cheese Masla Dosa from Mumbai, India:

Mysore Cheese Masla Dosa

Dosa consists of a pancake which is made from a fermented batter. It is somewhat similar to a crepe but its main ingredients are rice and black gram. To make a Mysore Masala Dosa, a thick, red, garlic-red chilli chutney is smeared inside the dosa , before the masala (potato) is filled. You can also add some cheese to the dosa and you get Mysore Cheese Masla Dosa . This dish is usually served with sambhar and chutney. You can watch the video below to see how it’s prepared.

Daniel says that this is his favorite cause this is the only place where he loves Mysore masala dosa. He says he probably ate it 1000 times ..whoa!!

Karen and Suzan’s favorite street food from India:

So we have been a fan of street food since we were kids. Below is a list of some of our favorite street food (We had a long list , but we wrote 6 of our most favorite Indian street food).



Panipuri is a common street food all over India. It consists of a round, hollow puri, fried crisp and filled with a mixture of flavored water (commonly known as Imli Pani), tamarind chutney, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and chickpeas.This is one of our most favourite street foods.


Dahi puri and Sev puri:

Dahi puri and Sev puri

Dahi puri

This is similar to pani puri except that instead of the flavoured water, sweetened beaten yoghurt is poured over the puri, and the finished product is garnished with crushed sev, moong dal and finely chopped coriander leaves.

Sev puri

Sev puri is made of puri at the base which is then topped with sliced and boiled potatoes, red onions, three types of chutneys: tamarind, chili and garlic and topped with sev andfinely chopped coriander leaves.. It is also seasoned with raw mango, when mango is in season or with a hint of lemon juice and chaat masala.


Samosa pav and vada pav:

The common man’s food of Mumbai is either a  samosa pav or vada pav as most of the working class eat this as their lunch. Many people also eat these as a snack. It is a great combination with chai (tea) and you can get it at a number of street vendors. Did we forget to mention it’s one of the cheapest street food!

samosa pav


A samosa consists of a fried dough in a triangle shape and has a savory filling, usually spiced potatoes or mince meat.It can be eatern plain with tomato sauce or chutneys.You can also eat it with pav (bread bun).

vada pav

Vada pav

A vada pav consists of vada which is boiled mashed potatoes  spiced and coated in gram flour batter and deep fried. It is served in a pav ( bread bun), and is also accompanied with chutney.



momos , dumplings

Momos consists of a steamed bun with a filling like chicken,vegetables etc. Our favorite momos were these yummy chicken and mutton( goat) momos we had from Tibet Kitchen in Mcleodganj, Dharamshala, India. It is more popular in North and North East India but we also get this in Mumbai.

Thank you for reading.We hope you enjoyed going through this list. If you haven’t tried any of the above street food then do make sure to do so. Also do let us know your favorite street food in the comments below.

    I am a big time fan of street food. I really enjoyed your article. India is rich in street food. Pani puri, sev puri and samosas are my all time favorites. We have adopted momos also. I will definitely keep the others in mind when traveling out of India

    Great post some of my favourites are in there too, mango sticky rice (but from Laos), Momos, Masala Dosa and Pani Puri. In Cambodia Lort Cha – short stir fried egg noodles and chive cakes are good. As are green mangos dipped in chilli salt – yum!

  6. Thelittlelai: Beyond limits

    Wow, most of the foods that you’ve mentioned in your list is not familiar to me and I haven’t tried them as well for I haven’t travel much outside my country. But all the foods that you’ve featured in your blog post really looks luscious and tempting. I would love to try all of them soon If I get the chance. I might visit Thailand this year and will surely try the Khao Soi and the sticky rice with mango. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    Street food has that local aromas and flavours that can never be replicated in more expensive restaurants. I love all the Indian snacks from Dosas to Samosas and Vada Pavs. The beauty is the sheer range and variety that is available.

  8. Blaine Chrian

    What an amazing list. To be honest, I haven’t tried these foods except the noodle soup which is flavorful. On my end, I love dumplings and fried fish balls smothered with sweet thick sauce and it’s famous here in the Philippines 🙂

  9. Chasing Potatoes
