FEELIN' HUNGRY?

THE WORLD'S FIRST GLOBAL STREET FOOD COMPETITION

Big-name, high-end, fancy-pants restaurants may have their place, but for us, we prefer to take it to the streets. We’re more into slurping noodles from nameless shops, grabbing tacos from street corner carts, and snacking on all things served on sticks, served piping hot from a sidewalk grill.

The inaugural #streetfood50 Awards are the first-ever all-international food awards honouring pushcarts, streetside pop-ups, market stall, no-name diners and take-out shops.

Is there a *street food stall you love?  Nominate them by posting a pic or video to Instagram with #streetfood50 and let us know why they deserve to win the $1000USD prize.

If YOUR nominee is picked- you could win a street food tour for you and your friends.

KHAO SOI KHUN YAI

PINKY MILK

KHAO KHA MOO PRAI SA NEE

Thanks to Anthony Bordain, the North Gate cowgirl is the most famous vendor in town serving khao kha moo… but she’s not the only one.

When you first walk into Pinky Milk you’d be forgiven for thinking you had stumbled into a cartoon-like alternate universe.

You can’t come to town and not try the most classic dish of Chiang Mai at the most classic place. Consider this a cheat in our off-the-grid list.
