Eats from the KCRW "Global Street Food" event

Some of the best food around the globe comes from the streets, and that's exactly what was discussed at the "Global Street Food" event hosted by Good Food's Evan Kleiman on May 1 at the Santa Monica Broad Stage. They chatted about chat about what street food is, how it's different from eating in restaurants, and how it is evolving into more mobile means in the form of food trucks.

After the mouth-watering discussion, each audience member was given six tickets to line up and grub on: Mariscos Jalisco's shrimp tacos, Let's Be Frank hot dogs with devil sauce, India Jones Chow Truck curry, Piaggio Gourmet on Wheels' empanadas, a Nom Nom Truck banh mi sandwich (lemon grass tofu or grilled pork) and Crepe'n Around banana nutella or berries and cream crêpe.
