WHAT IS STREET FOOD?
Street Food is generally recognised from how its served, usually by the street, where vendors are known colloquially as hawkers. However, street food culture can vary quite drastically from country to country. For example, in Malaysia, street food may be served by small restaurants known as hawker centres of coffee shops, while in Hong Kong, there are Small Eats and Dai Pai Dong.
