When it comes to street food, quality matters
In addition to the speed of preparation, the quality of the ingredients is increasingly characteristic of many street food dishes. Aspects such as sustainability, animal welfare and regionality are very important for many consumers today, a trend that more and more coffee shops are responding to. Meaty snacks dripping in cheap frying fat are replaced with high-quality beef patties, and the cabbage for the coleslaw comes from the nearby farmland. From this perspective, you can enjoy street food with a clear conscience. And: Visiting a street food festival or enjoying homemade delicacies at home is so much fun in good company with your friends and family!
