Tired of having nothing but hot dogs, sausage, and nitrate sticks for your afternoon snacks? (Provided you purchase your snacks from strangers on the street.) Perhaps serving as a complement to the celebration of culture that is the Olympics, Governing.com reports U.S. cities are now looking at new, multicultural foods to don their streets.
Governing Magazine reports:
In many places around the country, food-cart options are exploding as vendors branch out and offer new fare. American cities have never had quite the street-food culture that urban centers in Europe, Asia and Africa do. But some sidewalks in the United States are starting to look like a global buffet — with vendors selling everything from crepes and kebabs to vegan burgers and Korean Bi Bim Bop. Street food today means a whole lot more than hot dogs and pretzels.
See there, I thought Bi Bim Bop was simply a type of jazz, so I guess you learn something new every day.
