Dining at a high-end restaurant can leave a long lasting impression, but standing on a street corner in Asia while slurping up a hot plate of noodles can be just as memorable — if not more so.
The Chowtzer Fast Feasts Awards found the most incredible regional foods served in diners, street stalls, and food carts around the world. To compile these awards, local food experts and bloggers nominated their favorite dishes around the world, which were then tested by a tasting team. The awards were sponsored by Coca-Cola.
