1. Mumbai, India

One of the great things about dining in Mumbai is the price. For barely $10, you can have the meal of your life. Try earthy kheema pav, (mild or spicy minced lamb or chicken with curry) at Gulshan-e-Iran in the Crawford Market. Sample saffron induced white biryani at Noor Mohammadi in the Bhendi Bazaar. There are scores of fragrant street food joints on nearby Mohammed Ali Road.

2. Penang Island, Malaysia

Try koay teow th’ng, a main staple and available everywhere. It’s a clear broth noodle soup, and add-ons like duck meat make it unique meal in each place. The 113 Malay Street Koay Teow Th’ng is a very popular spot. Don’t miss the Kimberley Street Night Market.

3. St. Petersburg, Russia

Blinis (a Russian style of crepes) are ubiquitous in St. Petersburg, but having one at historic, Literary Cafe is special (make a reservation to avoid the long wait). Pelmeni is a typical Russian dumpling perhaps best topped with sour cream and dill.

4. Jerusalem, Israel 

Varied hummus dishes can be found all over Jerusalem. Visit Hummus Acramawi. Middle Eastern textures and spices abound and kebabs rule. All egg lovers must try some Israeli shakshuka, poached eggs served sizzling in a chili pepper and garlic tomato sauce. Don’t miss the open air Mahane Yehuda Market.

5. The Bronx, New York

This New York City borough is finally getting a chance to shine. Pizza’s the ultimate New York street food, and Full Moon Pizza on Arthur Avenue is typically brash. This old Italian-American neighborhood, full of shops, restaurants and markets, is an interesting place to explore. Louie & Ernie’s Pizza is another pie gem to consider. The Bronx caters to so many ethnicities that the local dining choices are endless.
