All we can advise you is to walk, don’t ride; take the stairs, not the elevator. Why? Because life is short and street food in Europe is abundant-- and tasty! The notion that food consumed while we are standing up has fewer calories is sadly untrue. However, if you’ve scaled castle walls, run to catch an unfamiliar tram, climbed in and out of sightseeing boats, stood in a few lines, surveyed a thousand postcards and gazed at life-changing masterpieces, your batteries may need quick recharging. A food cart is a great place to do so as the locals would. Europe is so big on street food that fairs and festivals dedicated to the tradition take place all over the continent. You can find seasonal specialties and traditional favorites, and nowadays, often popular street foods from around the world. Tasting the real deal right out of the ovenwill always outclasswhatever packaged version you find in a store. Whether you’re fanatic about craft beer, grilled meat, irresistible fries or seafood-on-a-stick, you have a world of gastronomic fun ahead of you on the streets of Europe

Barbecue plays a big role in Bulgarian cuisine and culinary culture, so it’s no surprise that grilled meat is an important component of street food, as well as on family dining tables. Many countries have popular grilled street foods, of course, but in Bulgaria, kebapche, is the go-to street food that locals and visitors enjoy at every opportunity! Kebapches also find a place on the table of every Bulgarian family. They often turn into a favorite dish of many guests of the country, along with Tarator and Shopska Salad. Kebapche is a dish made of minced meat with spices, formed into an oblong shape and grilled on a barbeque. Besides being part of Bulgarian cuisine, kebapche is also a popular dish in Serbian cuisine. Bulgarian kebapche is prepared by mixing minced pork and veal with various spices, for example pepper, cumin, and salt, however the exact spice mix used in preparing kebapche variesy regionally. After kneading the meat mixture, it must be left to rest for a few hours so the meat can take on the fragrance of the spices.

KEBAPCHES 1. Salt the meat according to your preferences. 2. Add 1 teaspoon of cumin. 3. Finally season with pepper. 4. Knead the minced meat with hand, until the spices spread evenly. 5. Form the readymixture in oblongs about 15 cm long. 6. Grill the kebapches on a barbeque, turning them over at regular intervals, until they are evenly cooked. 7. Serve the piping hot kebapches garnished with a sprig of parsley .
