Street food vending is found all around the world but varies greatly between regions and cultures. For example, the street food of Vietnam is said to be fresh and lighter than many of the cuisines in the area, drawing heavily on herbs, chilli peppers and lime; While street food of Thailand is ‘fiery’ with Bangkok is often mentioned as one of the best places for street food such as pad thai (stir fried rice noodle), som tam (green papaya salad), sour tom yum soup, various selection of Thai curries.

Indonesian street food is a diverse mix of local Indonesian, Chinese, and Dutch influences while Indian street food is as diverse as Indian cuisine. Every region has its own specialties to offer. Some of the more popular street food dishes are Vada Pav, Aloo tikki, Kebabs, Tandoori chicken, Samosa, and Pakora.
