Street Food

Street food is one of the greatest food trends, ever developed. I love the fact that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating things like burgers or fries. In actual fact it is fast food containing healthy components. The concept provides for a wide diversity of quickly served meals which often contain vegetables and salads. The meat is of good quality. That’s why it’s a thousand times better than what you get at places like McDonalds.

In the past years I went to street food festivals all over Austria. It is really awesome, because you get to know totally knew things, not only concerning meals but also culture. You find yourself eating stuff you would have never tried before and actually loving it. Getting to know some probably unthinkable food creation is really nothing special there. It is crazy how many varieties of burgers you can get at these places, but that’s just the beginning of a long, delightful and exciting road of awesome food.

If all of this hasn’t convinced you to start look immediately for a place which offers this kind of “diet”, here is another incentive: Street Food isn’t only tasty it is also easy to cook at home. By getting away from unhealthy fast-food you don’t just help yourself, but you also contribute to making our world a better place, by eating things which you know where they come from.

(Street) Food has the power to unite various cultures, and I think you can’t say that about a lot of things. I’m convinced that good food makes you feel good, or have you ever seen someone look angry while they were eating something yummy?

  1. Dear LorenzM,
    A really good blog entry! Since I`ve never been a fan of McDonalds I`ve always wanted to visit one of those street food events. I really love food and I totally agree with you that it unites different cultures. I love to try new dishes and ingredients. Your video is great too, the steps are very clear and it looks so delicious. It`s really important to me that I know where my food comes from or how it was produced. All in all I think you`ve presented a really interesting topic. It would be great if you could post upcoming street food events on our website.

  2. Hi LorenzM,

    I agree, this new wave of street food is pretty cool! Last year I spent some time in Portland, OR and they have an entire block just for different food trucks where you can get all kinds of different foods from all over the world, from Mexican to Thai to Indian to even German Bratwurst! It’s crazy!
    Since you talked about making burgers at home, I wondered if you have any good recipes you could share with us? I’m always keen on trying out new stuff, especially when it comes to food!

    Also, I heard that there will be a Street Food Festival in Graz in May and I was wondering if you will go there and share your thoughts on the food there on your blog.

    Hope I’ll read more from you soon,
