Street food is the most common dining experience shared by the people on this planet. It’s the only dining experience available to all classes. Street food has preserved our culinary traditions, culture, and creates community. The scent of grilling meat in the night air, the cluster of people around a stand, the street beacon stream of cheap lights, the lyrical cries of a vendor; this is what gets us out into our parks, plazas, city centers, and neighborhoods.

So pull up a plastic chair, sit on a bench, grab a milk crate, find a wall to lean against, or just stand. It’s Global Street Food with Evan Kleiman.
