Sidewalk vendors, push carts, holes in a wall — even in cities with rich reputations for fine dining, some of the best meals are on the streets.

Smells of food fill the streets of Moroccan cities, and nowhere is the quality or diversity greater than in Marrakesh.
"Marrakesh is all about street food," says Anna Koblanck, who writes a blog on African food travel.
"In the evenings, the city gathers among snake charmers and musicians at the Jemaa el-Fnaa square to taste the incredible spread of Moroccan delicacies that are on offer from the street stalls.
"You'll find everything from freshly squeezed fruit juices to snail soup and sheep heads. It's a full-on feast for all the senses, and not particularly pricey."
"My favorite Moroccan street snack is the Meloui, a kind of pancake made of folded pastry that you buy hot off the stove.
"I had one in the market in Fes that was made with a spicy onion-based filling that was simply divine. It's a very heartwarming bite, a sort of comfort street food. You see these sold everywhere in Morocco, often in the food markets.
"Moroccans have a serious sweet tooth, and you find a lot of cookies and pastries sold in the stalls in the souks. It's a pretty, colorful and very tempting spread of sugar and calories — mountains of delicately shaped and beautifully decorated creations."
