Fast and inexpensive food, bought on the street or in small shops and eating on foot, has become a gastronomic phenomenon. The so-called street food offers traditional dishes in a modern edition.
The food phenomenon prepared on the street is very old. Since there is tourism and shopping on the markets, street vendors offer authentic local specialties at a solid price. Street food has become a synonym for good food, innovative creations, and local specialties.
The concept of street food is based on offering simpler and easier meals that are quickly prepared. Small bistros, stalls or kiosks with food are opened not only by individuals but also by renowned restaurants. Visually attractive and striking, they attract tourists and offer a wide range of dishes that can be eaten while on the go or during a short break. The street atmosphere is different from the one in the restaurant where you sit and eat – it is more relaxed, quieter, and it seems more homely. Informal surroundings, sightseeing and walks in a new, unfamiliar place, coupled with tempting scents and curiosity, surely increase everyone’s appetite and invite people to at least look, and maybe even try something new.
