Past Giveaway: The Pretzel Cookbook

I love street food. I just can’t help myself! Specifically, soft pretzels. Check out this perfect pretzel we got on the streets of NYC. It was bigger than my kid’s head!

    my favorite street food is the giant smoked turkey legs at disneyland! Nothing tops them. That has to count as street food…it's on a street…even if it is a fake one.

    We've have an amazing local venture in a mobile truck here called OhMyPocketPies, its fantastic. They set up at various street corners or parking lots. My fav item is the Twice baked Potato pocket pie.

    I don't know if I really have a favorite street food cause I love them all!!!!! I guess if I have to pick one, it would be the honey roasted peanuts in NYC. But then if you go to Canal Street (in NYC) you can get stir-fry noodles or pan fried dumplings. Though I warn to eat at your own risk. Food safety is not a priority for them. But then don't forget the freshly grilled/roasted cuttlefish in Taiwan. I still have to make my way to Vancouver for the Chinatown Night Market which has all your typical street vendor food. Drooling just thinking about it!

    My favorite street food is a hot dog, from the vendor here in Alaska. It's a bit gross I know but it's my poison and my kids too! 🙂

    my fave is always, and will always be, the nyc soft pretzel, with salt of course! in fairness, though, i'm also a huge fan of the churro and those 'hot nuts' that smell so amazing in downtown in winter.

    When I was in High school and College I spent many of my Summers over seas doing missions work- one of my favorite Street Foods was in Venezuela. They sold HUGE burgers topped with a fried egg, avocado, ham, dry coleslaw, potato sticks and ketchup- they were so yummy- Even though it's been 19 years since I was in Venezuela I can still remember those burgers and I've even recreated them for my family 🙂

    July 28th, 2010

    My favorite, when I lived on Long Island many moons ago, were the hot chestnuts on a cold day in NYC. Now, it would be the pretzels with salt and tons of mustard.

    in china (and many asian countries), street food it the way to go! There's everything you can imagine and it's cheap, quick, and delicious. Maybe not the cleanest…but hey, i'm still alive! One of my fave is grilled whole squid brushed with spicy sauce and other awesome condiments. mmm

  19. 19.) Melanie

    Taco truck tacos! My kid even ate tongue and raved about it for weeks (months, maybe) afterward. Yay for taco trucks!!

  29. 29.) beth
    July 28th, 2010

    I live in NYC and have enjoyed a fair share of street food. My favorite, and now my sons, are the Italian ices that get wheeled around by hand cart in the warmer months. The vendors honk a horn or ring a bell to alert us of their presence. My 2 year old stops dead in his tracks when he hears the 'honk' then goes running for the cart, just like the pied piper. My favorite flavor is Mango, while my son is Coconut. Mmm.

    We don't have any street food options where I live, BUT I would love to have a mobile taco stand in my town…my husband and I, in our future dream retirement life, will own a taco stand called 'satan gave me a taco' and we will drive around in the streets blasting mid 90's alt rock and selling delicious tortillas stuffed with culinary delights.

  31. 31.) Angelina

    Street foods are one of the things I miss most about living on the East Coast! Soft pretzels are awesome, but I'm partial to the "squished" variety from Philly. Nothing on the West Coast compares!

  39. 39.) LeeYong
    July 28th, 2010

    I love street food. Ice cream when it's hot, and I am sucker for street car hotdogs (although I don't want to think about the mystery meat in them) and I love soft pretzels. I remember begging my mom for them when we would be in Washington D.C. when I was a kid

  41. 41.) Janis

    My husband and I just had Ben's Chili Bowl for the FIRST time last week. We were at a Nationals game and they have a concession stand. I'm sure it isn't quite as good as the real thing but it was pretty darn good. 🙂

    July 29th, 2010

    My favorite Street food would probably be the smoked corn on the cob. It might be a southern thing, but here at the fairs they have the biggest, most juicy corn on the cob. I love it.

    July 30th, 2010

    We don't have the concept of street food where I live, but I love visiting cities where you can get a steaming hot dog or some hot, smoked almonds from a streetcart. I'm thinking my town needs a taco truck!

    My favorite "street food" is vanilla ice cream dipped in red cherry coating! You used to be able to get them at dairy queen but the only place I've been able to find it lately is on the streets in NYC! I love them and crave them in the summer but its been 3 years since I had one last! :o( Time to plan a trip to NYC.
