The Best Street Food in Europe

October 28, 2017

Europe is home to a huge variety of flavours, with practically every city and region having its own delicacies and local specialities. It’s hard to pick just a few favourites, but there are some you just have to try if you’re visiting.

Frites, Belgium

Most people would probably thing of waffles when picking a famous Belgian food, but frites are our favourite. You can find them being freshly prepared and cooked all over Belgian cities, usually with a huge variety of sauces to choose from. For the most authentic experience however, we would recommend mayonnaise.


Crepes, France

There’s nothing quite like a French crepe cooked freshly in front of you, filled with all manner of delights. They’re the nation’s fast food, cooked in mere moments and adaptable to any palate, with savoury options like ham and cheese, or popular favourites like Nutella and fruit.


Currywurst, Germany

Probably the most popular of Germany’s famous Wurste (sausages), currywurst is pork sausage served in a delicious curry sauce. You’ll often find it served with a side of bread or crispy French fries, too.


Smorrebrod, Denmark  

Denmark is where you’ll find the Smorrebrod, a kind of open-faced sandwich topped with all manner of delicious things. Most common are picked herring, fresh prawns, cheese, and various cold slices of meat. You’ll often get a selection of three or more when you order from a restaurant or café, and you should always start with the fish.


Polse, Norway   

Polse, or hot dogs, are incredibly popular in Norway. You’ll find them served everywhere as fast, street food. There are plenty of run-of-the-mill options that are perfectly delicious, but you could also seek out something a bit special like reindeer sausage topped with berries.


Stroopwafel, Netherlands

Probably the country’s most famous sweet treat, the authentic stroopwafel is absolutely delicious. Best served fresh, hot, and gooey, it’s made from two thin waffles sandwiched together with a layer of sweet syrup, and you’ll find them being cooked up in most Dutch cities.
