Editorial Reviews

Review

“I love the fact that Susan Feniger has done the legwork for us all and brought back tons of intoxicating street food recipes from all over the world. My next party is definitely including a platter of the miso-glazed chicken wings and some Thai drunken shrimp. Yum!”
Bobby Flay
 
 “I would follow Susan Feniger anywhere around the world. She gently takes you out of your comfort zone into a world of delicious, exotic, yet comforting street food. No passport required!”
Dana Delany
 
“This book teaches you more about finger food than you could ever learn on the street.”
Bob Saget
 
“The most authentic and tastiest flavors of a culture are disseminated in street-side booths and carts often in dodgy and out-of-the-way alleys. In the absence of napkins and tablecloths you experience some of the greatest hospitality the world over. Susan Feniger’s Street Food depicts the delicious grittiness of the streets of Hanoi and Mumbai in characteristically expert fashion. American home cooks often struggle to re-create the flavors of Asia. The recipes in Street Food artfully bring you the international kitchen through Feniger’s cool California lens. They made my New York kitchen smell like Cambodia in the best and most poetic way.”
Mario Batali

“This is one incredible journey around the world. Globe-trotting chef Susan Feniger helps you easily re-create astonishingly tasty treats in your own home. From irresistible Indonesian noodles and Indian puffed rice to tantalizing Turkish breads, Thai spices, sensational Saigon shrimp, and Szechuan sauces, this cookbook is packed with flavorful foods and the culinary adventure of a lifetime.”
—Robin Leach

“In the world of Los Angeles restaurants, Susan Feniger is a pioneer, for she indeed brings the food world right to our streets. She’s like the Marco Polo of chefs, traveling the globe and bringing back recipes we might never get to sample if it weren’t for Susan. She has this immense passion and talent to bring these food cultures together in a harmonious way. Dining at her brilliant restaurant STREET  is like eating at the ideal fantasy restaurant in the United Nations.”
Nancy Silverton  

“This is food from all over the world that's so bone-suckingly good you will stop at nothing to have or make more.”
NPR.org, best books of 2012

I love this cookbook! I have over 1,000 cookbooks, and this one is not only different, it is fun and very accessible to the home cook - IF you can get your hand on the ingredients!

In the introduction, Susan Feniger explains that "aren't we all sick of making the same dishes over and over, mac 'n' cheese and blueberry muffins aside?" Her goal was to write a book that would share her love of street food around the world, and push the home cook to try new and exciting flavors. The book hits the mark, not just because of the recipes, but because Feniger is an entertaining and friendly guide to these places, the people, and their food.

I am puzzled by a previous reviewer stating that this is a vegan cookbook - it is not, but many of the recipes can be converted to vegetarian, or in some cases, vegan, by simply eliminating the fish or meat and substituting tofu or tempeh. While some of the recipes have a short list of ingredients, others require many ingredients. Where possible, Feniger provides easier-to-find substitutions for some of them. The good news is that with the internet, you can order a lot of the shelf-stable ingredients (palm sugar, rock sugar, etc.) from Amazon, Kalustyan's, or My Spice Sage. Almost every dish is accompanied by a photo.

As for the recipes, I've tried three: Cheese Grits with Three Pepper Relish, Malaysian Black Pepper Clams, and Chilled Soba Noodles with Spicy Orange Sesame and Tofu. All three of them were delicious (I made minor adjustments for my family's tastes). If you want to see other recipes, click on the "search inside the book" option at the top of the page to view recipes and see the table of contents. I am looking forward to trying many more of the recipes in this fun book!

I've been a fan of Susan Feniger's for years. Loved her on Top Chef, Best Things on Food Network - and have enjoyed all her cookbooks.

This cookbook got me through waiting for a deposition in the Bronx - I wasn't happy sitting there waiting until I cracked open the book -- the book I did not patiently wait for -- I pestered the hell out of Susan on twitter and facebook - "when will it be out?" "when can we pre-order" - I was the one that actually told her it was available for pre-order because I checked every week! The stories of her travels are filled with details that you feel as if you are sitting there with her cleaning fish or sitting by a fire sharing stories.

The recipes - exotic, yet very doable in almost any kitchen - coconut curry caramel corn, miso glazed chicken wings with ginger scallion dipping sauce, banana fritters with coconut kaya jam, Indonesian tek-tek noodles with chopped peanut sauce - all out of this world.

Buy this book and take yourself on an international street food vacation!

PS - Highlight of our trip across the country - New York to California - was having brunch at her restaurant - the kaya toast - and the chicken croquettes - make your eyes roll back in your head! Delicious (I wish the chicken croquette recipe was in the book).

I love this book! From the moment I read the blurb I was hooked. Recipes are clear and easy to understand and execute. I have so far only made Feniger's Miso-glazed Chicken wings w/ Ginger-scallion dipping sauce (substituted a Chinese chili-soybean paste/sauce for the Korean one that was called for); the flavors work and pop.

One thing though, I do not understand the negative comments about this cook book having too many complicated ingredients; I think these people have missed the point of this book.

Chef Feniger has brought to you recipes, flavors and tastes of STREET FOOD from around the WORLD. HENCE, you should expect to find that there are foods and flavors that cannot be replicated or substituted. You will have to source many ingredients from ethnic markets, internet purveyors or other creative ways of getting your ingredients (e.g., grow in a garden and/or make the ingredient yourself). A person's local lack of availability of ingredients should not enter into a review about a *multicultural* cookbook.

One will most likely need to get ready for a trip to "international specialty" stores for most recipes, but what a treasure - the opportunity to TOTALLY expand one's taste horizons. The book is just like Susan - funky, open-to-something-different-to-eat, and joyful! Be brave, to me, is her message - the key to exploring other yummy cultures...a noble journey.

I ate at Street one night and made my coworkers go with me the following night. It was that amazing. When this book came out I ordered all the necessary spices online and got cooking. The flavors are perfectly combined and truly unique. My friends are truly in awe of the meals I've made and I can't stop trying all the recipes. Thank you, Susan, for taking my cooking skills to another level and introducing me to seasonings I've always wondered about.

After holding on to this book for a few months I finally decided to try a couple of the recipes which seemed easiest to make at home. Although the book is laid out with step by step and what seems easy to follow directions, clearly these recipes are created with industrial kitchens and mega deep fryers in mind. Nothing I made stayed in tact or came out crunchy, flaky or even tasty. I am not new to cooking and welcome a challenge but this book is now off my shelf and will not be opened again.
