When I travel one of the things I like to do the most is trying street food. Kiosks and food trucks are some of my biggest obsessions when I visit a new place. I decided to ask to other Travel Bloggers about their favorite street food that they have tried on the road. These were the food we loved the most!
Kebab – Beirut Kebab, Oslo Norway
This Kebab from Beirut Kebab in Oslo is my favorite Kebab in the world. You must consider that first of all, Oslo is one of the most expensive cities in the world. You get this delicious huge kebab with a soft drink for 85kr($10… a gift considering you are in Oslo!) Definitely, this is the spot I always need to go back when I am in Oslo.
Malwa – Uganda – Leslie @ The Real Uganda
My favourite roadside delight, mostly because it’s really obscure for travellers, but a favourite among locals in Uganda is a shared drink. Malwa is made from fermented sorghum and hot water, and can be found on any back road in central and eastern Uganda. It’s mixed into a local clay pot and drunk through straws by any number of (usually) men stopping by. The straws have a filter so you don’t suck up the silty sorghum. It’s meant to stay in the pot and continue fermenting.
When the liquid volume runs low, more hot water is poured in. Guys can (and do!) literally sit and socialize for DAYS around the malwa pot. It’s a great small business (predominantly for women), and since it’s made from sorghum, it’s actually quite filling for the drinkers. The buzz is light and sustaining.
As a foreigner – I gotta admit, its tastes totally gross. Just like warm white wine mixed with beer. But the conversation is great and everyone is welcome!

Gyros – Greece – Noemi @ PinayFlyinghigh.com
A trip to Greece is not complete without trying their famous street food called gyros which you can find in just about any corner in any city that you visit in this country. Gyros is grilled meat which can either be chicken, beef or pork wrapped in a flatbread with fries, tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. You can eat this as a snack or a proper meal but I do prefer eating it after a night of drinking, sobers you right up.
