This redesigned, repackaged, and updated edition of Street Food surveys common street foods from more than 75 countries and regions across the globe.

An estimated 2.6 billion people worldwide eat street food every day. Once associated with developing countries, street food has spread around the globe, particularly in the United States, where a variety of food trucks, top chefs, and trendy pop-up restaurants specialize in grab-and-go fare. Now more than ever, readers are interested in finding and tasting the different street foods prepared and consumed around the world.

Globe-trotters in search of the street-food experience will find information about street-food superpowers--such as China, India, and Mexico--and countries where street food plays a less important role, such as those in northern Europe. Contributed by the world's leading food historians, the book's entries provide a detailed look at vendor culture, fun facts, and illuminating statistics, as well as some historical and environmental background on specific foods.

First published in 2013, this reconceived version of Street Food is a comprehensive look at the world's best street food, a must-have for travelers and foodies alike.
