New research has revealed a hit list for street-food-savvy travellers.
My Late Deals has released the Street Food City Index, ranking the top 30 best cities in the world for scoping out the best street eats.
The index ranks cities based on four factors: number of vendors, affordability, number of street food experiences/tours and sanitation.
Hong Kong’s delicious dim sum, curry fish balls and cheung fun topped the list, thanks to its high number of street food stalls, experiences and sanitation.
Bangkok came second on the list as its home to the cheapest street food (with an average cost of just $3) and the second-highest number of street food experiences available in the list. It also scored high marks in number of street food vendors but drops points on sanitation.
Sitting in third place was Ho Chi Minh City which got top marks for number of street food experiences and high marks for affordability (with an average cost of just $4) and number of vendors but like Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh lost marks for sanitation.
Coming in fourth was Singapore for its high levels of sanitation and number of experiences. It also scored highly on number of vendors but lost points on affordability with an average cost of $13.
In fifth place was Mumbai. The city scored top marks in street food vendors with the highest number on the list. It also scored well on affordability (with an average price of just $6) and street food experiences. However, it scored lower on the sanitation aspect.
Here are the top 10 best cities in the world for street food:
1. Hong Kong
