Quick, cheap and chock full of flavor, street food gives hungry passers-by a lot to love. From award-winning food stalls to gourmet food trucks to noodle shops, it's easy to see how street food has staked its claim on cities across the globe.
Got to take a couple bites out of the Big Apple recently and it's always a pleasure to taste something new or revisit old standards. New York, to me, is San Francisco's culinary godmother, and I love going back to our roots.
The food truck fad isn't as populist as it seems. In fact, it may be more elitist than so-called "elite" restaurants. You won't be rubbing shoulders with construction workers. These things do lunches at prep schools.
