Many people these days live very busy lives, having to juggle work, family, social lives, hobbies, and other commitments. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that many of us rely on food that is quick and simple to make. However, one thing that most of us do not want is food that is bland and boring.
When people are on the run during the day, many turn to street food in order to combine great taste and flavor with speed and convenience, and these days there is a wide variety of great tasting varieties to choose from. There is street food styles from all around the world, so you can look forward to a superb culinary experience. In this article, we will look at three types of street food that you can really go to town with.
Three of the Top Choices
When it comes to street food, simplicity is key. However, this does not mean you can’t have loads of flavor and mouthwatering additions to enhance your food. You don’t need lots of time or equipment like fancy deck ovens – you pick up street food as a quick and easy treat for the whole family. So, let’s take a look at some of the top ones that you can adapt to suit your tastes:
The classic hot dog is definitely a street food favorite and one that is so simple and quick to make. However, the great thing about hot dogs is that you can dress them up and add to them as much as you like – or dare – to create the perfect dog for your tastes. If you like things plain and simple, that’s no problem. However, if you prefer something that is tasty, filling, and delicious, you can add all sorts of extras such as cheese, guacamole, honey mustard, blue cheese dressing, coleslaw, pineapple – pretty much anything you desire.
Pizza already comes in many shapes and sizes and has become a street food staple over the years. You can find street pizza in just about any style you can think of: deep dish pizza, thin crust, stone oven pizza, pizza pies, and more. And then there are the toppings! There are already a lot of toppings you can get at a usual pizza place, but some places that serve street pizza can get very creative with alternative toppings like diced apple, artichoke hearts, roasted Brussels sprouts, avocado, baked sweet potato, and more.
A baked potato can be as simple or loaded as you want it to be. Filling, tasty, and ideal for those chillier days, you can find food trucks that add all sorts of toppings to a baked potato to create a wonderfully filling and incredibly delicious meal. You can add the popular toppings such as cheese, baked beans, coleslaw, or you can get adventurous with chopped broccoli, sour cream with salsa, stir-fried veggies, or even a fried egg! You can get them fully loaded with the toppings, well, on top — or you can get a fully loaded, stuffed baked potato.

As you can see, anything goes when it comes to toppings for today’s popular street foods. So, you can look forward to total ease, speed, and convenience in addition to great taste.
