Some might call it played out, but there's a reason why street food is so popular, and well, that's because it's pretty awesome. Authentic and usually priced way below what you'd see at a restaurant, there's perhaps no better way to appreciate its convenience than looking at street food from around the globe. Here, we've rounded up some photos of well-known snacks like churros and more exotic ones like octopus balls (yes, you read that right). Have a look and let us know if you have any favorites!
