A second edition for Tirana Street Food Festival
Tirana Street Food Festival returns after a forced break due to the pandemic, on November 23-29 in Italia Square near the Air Albania Stadium, in cooperation with the Municipality of Tirana.
This edition of the festival will also bring together participants from Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Italy where in a dedicated space, everyone will be able to try multi-ethnic specialties, enjoy the atmosphere and spend some time otherwise over the long November bank holiday weekend.
Street food or "Street Food" as it is popularly known, has been in everyone's attention for several years. From Michelin star chefs recreating dishes suitable for this genre, to travelers, tourists or influencers on their visits to the great street food markets around the globe.
But why is he so famous? And why it should not be confused with typical fast food, that "Fast Food".
The difference in both cases lies in tradition. Street food for a good part of the globe is a way of life. It is simple food, with fresh local ingredients, based on tradition.
Fast food is of course inspired by street food because it is also fast, but unlike street food, it often uses processed, canned food that comes from nowhere and recreates an almost artificial standard of food.
Food as a means of discovery!
Every nation has its own tradition, culture and characteristics, and food is the most delicious way to understand more of a country's history. Thanks to much cheaper movements, everyone has already tasted sushi, tacos or other specialties from other corners of the globe, but there is still much more variety, dynamism and love to discover.
This festival, which will become an annual tradition, gathers food enthusiasts in a celebration of multiculturalism, the desire to dare and travel to distant traditions.
From November 23-29, Sheshi Italia near the Air Albania Stadium will turn into a colorful corner full of flavors, food trucks, drinks and music from all over the world.
