Strasbourg We’ve tested for you: our 8 favorite street foods in the city!


Turbo Bao and its Taiwanese baos Turbo Bao is an original encounter with Taiwanese cuisine, which opened at the end of January on rue des Frères. Favorite for the “Porkbelly”: caramelized pork belly, cabbage, mint, peanut, sesame, mango sauce. A good mix of nice flavors with traditional steamed bread. Be careful, it’s not easy to eat, so it’s better to sit down so you don’t spill it all over the place.. 15 rue des Frères. Open from 11.00 am to 9.00 pm every day and from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm on Tuesdays. The gourmet and tasty Gua Bao Porkbelly. ASAPP PW Second try: Fried chicken with fried chicken, kimchi, scallions, sesame seeds and sprouted onions. An option that breaks a little more, and also less surprising. ASAPP PW Banh Mi Saigon and its Vietnamese sandwiches It’s not always easy to find an original AND fresh sandwich. Except at Banh Mi Saigon, the Vietnamese restaurant that also offers traditional dishes. Along with Banh Mi (a sandwich made from a baguette, smaller than the traditional French baguette), there is something for everyone (pork, beef, chicken, duck, tofu). I try the Banh Mi Bo with beef sautéed with lemon and onion. Each sandwich has a base of cucumber, carrot, radish and cilantro. It is sweet and shines on the flavor side. I am delighted with the beef/carrot combination, both in terms of texture and taste, so much so that I would be hard pressed to try another one.8 quai de Paris. Open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. closed sunday Beneath the carrots, yes, there is beef. ASAPP PW Dwichers Delicatessen and its ‘dwiches made in New York’ Having tasted several (not in Strasbourg), it is not easy to make a good pastrami sandwich (beef, New York specialty). It should not be too fatty or too dry, and the balance of flavors should stand out. That is clearly the case here. The establishment’s menu, inaugurated in December 2021, offers five recipes, including turkey and vegetables. For this first test, I opted for #3 with challah bread, Brooklyn beef pastrami and its peppery side, aged cheddar, pickled red cabbage and honey mustard. Yes, visually it’s very satisfying, and it’s warm in the mouth. Gourmets can opt for the double pastrami option. A nap will be mandatory. I’ll be back soon to try its cousin, n°23 with farmer’s bread, 47 rue du Fossé-des-Tanneurs. Open every day, except Sunday, from 11.30 to 15.00 and from 18.00 to 21.00 h. Just for the colors, we say yes. ASAPP PW Bagel Corner, simple and effective bagels Simple, but effective. The bagel hype may be a little faded, but with good ingredients, it’s like a good sandwich, you can’t get enough. I tend to always resort to salmon. Here, it’s a “Nordic”, consisting of chive cream cheese, smoked salmon, cherry tomatoes, avocado and young lettuce leaves. The lemon dill sauce could be more pronounced. The mixture of salmon and vegetables does the trick. 71 Grand’Rue. Open every day from 11 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Salmon bagel Simple, basic. ASAPP PW Oh Mega and its green-white-red street-food I didn’t go there for the pizzas, but for the panozzo, the specialty of Italian street food, which I’ve never tasted: a sandwich made with dough pizza . Together, we decide to do half and half: an Italian salami panozzo, vegetables and stracciatella, and a second with mortadella, stracciatella, pistachio pesto and pistachio chips. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the mix of ingredients is really interesting, a real mix between pizza and sandwich. For the former, I would have liked to have felt better the spiciness of the salami and the balance of flavors (the ingredients fall quickly to the bottom when you hold the panozzo straight), but it was full and tasty. And for the second, nothing to complain about, except that the pistachio fan that I am would have liked the taste to be more pronounced. As a bonus: eat it in the sun on the steps of the courthouse or the church of Saint-Pierre-Le-Jeune.5 rue du Fossé des Treize. Open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Closed on weekends. Italian panozzo salami with vegetables. ASAPP PW Venezo Latino, for a little trip to Venezuela It’s the first time I eat Venezuelan, so I decide not to do things by halves. I chose the typical dish: the arepa, a hot pancake made with corn flour (reminiscent of polenta). For me it’s “pabellón arepa”, with slow-fired shredded beef, bananas and Latin cheese. I’m so glad I ate the arepa right away because with the beef there’s a lot of sauce and it runs all over the place. So thanks to the plate and cutlery that saved my meal.32 rue de la 1ère armee. Open from 12 to 2 pm and from 7 to 9 pm. Sunday and Monday closed. A mixture of flavors not common among us, but interesting. Be careful, not everyone will take it. ASAPP PW Donatien Maître Éclair or the elegant option of street food This is the original discovery of the Grand’Rue. Just by walking past the window, the sweet éclairs, visually (very) beautiful, make you want to. But the idea of ​​tasting the salty range, even more so. I go for the “Scandinavian” (smoked salmon, whipped cheese, fresh cucumber, arugula and sesame): sort of a sandwich revisited. The second, the “spring mimosa”, is a little more original. It is presented as a classic éclair, with a savory mousse made of chive mayonnaise, brunoise, small cucumbers. And on top, hard-boiled eggs and sun-dried tomatoes. For older children, two savory éclairs may not be enough. The shop offers a lunch menu with two savory and one sweet. 111 Grand’Rue. Open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday closed The savory éclair or the chic street food option. ASAPP PW Lacocina and its flavors of MexicoThe Mexican home present in Strasbourg for ten years offers street food for all tastes: burrito, tacos, bowl or salad. Since it was almost 3pm and I was really hungry, I opted for a very full Veracruz burrito (caramelized pork, red beans, rice, peppers, fresh cream, salad) with extra guacamole. It’s super tasty, with a good balance between the creaminess of the guacamole and the consistency of the shredded meat and starch. And also very consistent. I’ll be back for the tacos.2 Grand’Rue. Open from 11.30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, from 11.30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Very tasty, the burrito. ASAPP PW We could also have put… Kebabs, and in particular Kebs Baba with its Berlin kebabs and Végéman which offers a vegan alternative. Along the way, you can also stop for a cone of chips with sauce at La Frituur, or even try the pizzas by the slice (pizza al taglio, as they say in Rome) at Il Francese. After this tour street food special, Strasbourg food. , I can say, I am quite conquered! The downside is financial. Street food works well, sure, but it’s expensive. Sometimes it is the same price as a dish of the day in a sit-down restaurant. How are our food tests done?
