What is street food? Street food is good food that’s not fancy. It’s a great meal you can order quickly, yet without feeling like you’re supposed to leave fast. It’s food the locals usually know about–food that you don’t feel strange eating by yourself, but are always glad to reveal to a special friend. Street food costs less than $10 per person. You order it at the counter, or at least pay for it there.
