The Street food movement is all about feeding people quickly, cheaply and substantially. The nature of this culinary culture has been alive and kicking for hundreds of years in Latin America, Asia and Africa. It’s steeped with historical relevance because it’s been their way of life.

Australia is but one country which has adopted a much more manufactured but none-the-less delicious take of this food revolution by introducing street stalls at markets, food trucks and pop ups into its landscape.

It’s livened our streets but most importantly has allowed people from all economic standings to experience far-flung cuisines they might never have envisaged trying.

This is my offering on the street food movement; Tofu and Mushroom Rice Cakes.
