This is How Street Food Looks Like in Different Parts of Asia

Delight your senses with these yummy treats. From Malaysia to Japan to Cambodia, Asian street food is a destination in itself.

Ever had a hunger pang in the middle of the night longing for mango sticky rice? Or an inconvenient craving of tteokbokki when there’s no signs of Korean food in the vicinity? Well, I’m sure we can all relate to dreaming about a country’s street food, especially after we’ve returned home from visiting those countries. Honestly, nowhere else does street food better than Asia.

So instead of trying to recall the glorious feeling when you sink your teeth into the succulent meat on a skewer, here are some photos to tempt (and torture) you instead.
