Love street food? Whether it’s for a special occasion or you're simply spicing up your mid-week meals, take a look at our street food recipes to see what whets your appetite.

What is Street Food?

Street food refers to food sold by vendors, typically outdoors on streets or in other public places, such as markets, fairs or parks. Street food culture, with its diverse array of flavours, textures and aromas, is a simple yet soulful affair that has snowballed in popularity over recent years.

Street food is most often cooked in front of your eyes, meaning you can see your chosen dish transform from fresh produce to a ready-to-eat dish in minutes. The opportunity to sample dishes and delicacies from cuisines people may never have thought of trying before draws punters in from far and wide. Events such as street food markets are popping up all over Ireland, allowing vendors the chance to showcase local specialities from a range of cuisines to foodies in need of a delicious snack or filling lunch on the go.

Street food markets and events foster a real sense of community, as locals and tourists alike are able to gather in masses around bustling stalls lining the streets, bonded by a universal love of great, freshly cooked food. If you’re a lover of Asian recipes, then Thai food recipes like moo ping (a grilled pork dish) or Thai-style chicken curry are a must-try. Alternatively, if a Greek-style cheese recipe is more your thing, a street food market serving classic Greek hummus, pita, tzatziki, and this chickpea gyro recipe is certain to please.

Types of Street Food

There are no hard and fast rules for what you can and can’t offer on your meal menu as a street food seller. Sweet or savoury, breakfast, lunch, dessert or snack, street food has no limitations, which is all part of its charm. Due to the on-the-move nature of street food, it usually includes sweet and savoury foods that don’t require cutlery, which you can eat on the go. Street food is also synonymous with quality, and a higher price is typically paid due to the higher class of ingredients and cooking methods used.
