Una persona puede conocer mucho de la ciudad que visita por su gastronomía. Cada lugar del mundo se carcteriza por al menos un platillo tradicional que combina técnicas e ingredientes muy particulares de la región. Aunque la alta cocina es muy apreciada por los sibaritas, chesf y food lovers de primer nivel, pues es la comida hecha arte, no se compara con la oferta culinaria que ofrece la calle. Esos antojitos que le dan sabor y personalidad a un lugar son el mejor souvenir de cualquier viajero que tenga un "buen diente".

La bloguera, viajera y food lover, Melissa Hie, decidió retratar esa comida callejera tan especial y deliciosa de las ciudades que visita. Esta chica lleva viajando con más intensidad desde 2010 y desde entonces comparte en su blog -y ahora en Instagram– fotos de los mejores platillos de barrio del mundo.
¿Cuál de estas delicias se te antoja más?
Agedango en las calles de Kyoto en Japón.
🍘 More emojis in the wild! This one is an Agedango at Ninenzaka, a picturesque shopping street in Kyoto. The style of old Japan has been preserved in this street and the area surrounding it. "Ninen-zaka" means "slope of two years", which comes from the legend that if you fall down the steps, you will die within two years. So watch your steps and don't fall down while admiring the beauty of this street. I found the lady selling agedango for 50 yen a piece right at the Ninenzaka steps! Agedango is a salty-sweet snack made of grilled rice flour and wrapped in nori (sea weed) 🍘. It was served fresh and hot right off the grill, so I had to wait a few mins before it cooled down 😅 delicious! #RealLifeEmoji #EmojiIRL #EmojisInTheWild #eeeeeats #ShotOniPhone6s
Fish & Chips frente al Opera House en Sydney.
Happy Australia Day to my aussie friends! 🇦🇺🎆 #tbt to that time i nearly got attacked by seagulls in front of Sydney Opera House 😅 That's the authentic Sydney experience! Coincidentally i've been writing long overdue posts and reminiscing about the great time I had in Australia last year. Check them out at my travel blog over at 🚩 www.girleatworld.net 🚩 I'm not even close to being done – there are still so much more to come! Alice springs, uluru, sydney and melbourne… It was an amazing trip ☺️
Refrescante agua de coco en Raja Ampat, Indonesia.
Hai gaiz! I kicked off 2016 with a dream diving trip that were planned for over a year. I've been on a liveaboard on MV Black Manta for the past 6 days in Raja Ampat in West Papua, Indonesia where the diving is just phenomenal. We clocked in 19 dives and saw everything we hoped to see! Follow me at @ichabunni for diving stories. We are usually anchored far away from land so fishermen and villagers would come visit on a boat with goods. They brought us coconut for $1! ❤️🌊

Koulouri, un buen snack mientras caminas por las calles de Atenas, en Grecia.
#GirlEatWorld by @lena.soh – Koulouri in Athens, Greece 🇬🇷. Koulouri (or κουλούρι in greek alphabet) is a cheap sesame bread ring that locals would grab from street carts for breakfast every morning. It also looks similar to Turkish simit to me! Thanks @lena.soh for this awesome shot. Do yourself a favor and follow her amazing pun-filled european adventure over at ➡️ @lena.soh ⬅️
Adorables donas de Kitty en Tokio, Japón.
Happy Monday! Missing this Hello Kitty donut at the organized chaos of the shibuya crossing in Tokyo 🇯🇵🍩. The Shibuya "scramble" crossing is well known for people watching and a must visit while in Tokyo. When the traffic lights turn red, pedestrians would pour out from all sides and meet in the middle of the intersection. I find it very calming to watch from afar. Also, Hachiko statue is in one of the corners of this intersection! — I've been spending some time re-learning Japanese through iknow.jp and I love it so much! To my fellow 日本語 learners, i highly recommend checking out iknow.jp @iknowjp to review your kanji, listening skills and vocabularies. It makes the learning process super fun compared to using flash cards! However, this app will not teach Japanese from scratch – you have to use this in conjunction of a text book since they do not teach you grammar. I wish apps like this existed when I was learning Japanese in college! You can also learn other language like Chinese and English for SAT learners #iKnowjp
Plato de Bakso en las islas Gili Trawangan en Indonesia.
🇲🇨🍜 #tbt to This delicious bowl of Bakso in Gili Trawangan island in Lombok, Indonesia. Ask any Indonesian about Bakso and i'm sure you would be met with excitement. It's a small bowl of yellow noodles, meatballs and fresh beansprouts in clear beef broth, served with fried shallots, chili and kecap (sweet soy sauce). Bakso is traditionally sold on the street in a small push cart (called "gerobak" in Indonesian) that would go around the neighborhood during supper time and you have to catch the bakso guy at the right time. Because of its small portion, we normally eat it as snacks for supper or midday between meals. Nowadays you can also get them at restaurants for a meal-sized bowl. We got this off a push cart in Gili for $2 and proceeded to eat it on the side of the street. It may not be the healthiest or most hygienic thing, but two months later @singasongjess and I are still dreaming about this Bakso…
¡Oh, la lá! Respostería francesa en París.
🇫🇷🍓 Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I'm super excited to let you know Fat Tire Paris (@FatTireParis) is giving away a FREE TRIP TO PARIS FOR TWO. This includes flights, accommodation and custom itinerary with Fat Tire tours in the magical city of love! Contest ends on 30 September. 🔝👆🏻Click the link in my bio for info! How do I know about Fat Tire tours? 🚲 When I went on my europe trip two years ago, looong before #GirlEatWorld was born, I booked a day tour with Fat Tire tours to see the city of Berlin on a bike. I ended up enjoying the day so much that I came back the next day and did another half day tour with them. The best way to really experience a city is on a bike! Since then, I have been recommending this tour to my friends who visit Europe. I hope one of you gets the chance to experience the tour too 😁 #FatTireParisGiveAway #FatTireParis #sp

Canapé de canguro en Uluru, Australia.
#latergram More weird meats I ate during this past trip! This is a kangaroo canapé while overlooking Uluru during sunset at the Sounds of Silence dinner that @yhaaustralia sent me to. I'm going to remember this dinner experience for many years to come. How does Kangaroo taste like? Beef! A very lean beef. The animal is so synonymous with Australia that most people probably think Australians ride kangaroos to work, but it's actually not very common to see a wild one in bigger cities like Sydney or Melbourne. I saw a ton of them in the Northern Territories though, especially while camping at Kakadu and Litchfield! One of of our camping grounds were at a farm in Mt Bundy. At night when the light has turned off, we'd hear a single rapid crunching sound on the grass. I was creeped out until we saw one hopping across the entrance of our tent and we realized it was just wild kangaroos hopping about our tent! It is also not very common for Kangaroo meat to be consumed in bigger cities… until recently that is. I was told by my local friends that kangaroo meat has started making its way to grocery stores. Kangaroos are breeding machine – they start at roughly 2 years of age with each pregnancy lasting about 18 months, though kangaroos have the ability to "freeze" embryo development until her pouch is ready / unoccupied by previous Joey (a Kangaroo baby). They breed so fast that a Kangaroo mommy would constantly have one in her belly, one Joey in her pouch and another young one running about. Overpopulation in Kangaroos causes overgrazing and problems with farmers, thus consuming Kangaroos might actually be beneficial. Plus they are cheaper than beef. Last Kangaroo fact: a group of Kangaroos is called a "mob". 🙊👀🔫💣 #SeeAustralia #RestaurantAustralia #NTAustralia #RedCentreNT #ExploreUluru #Kangaroo #GirlEatAustralia
