30 Mouthwatering Instagram Pictures Of Street Food Around The World

Girl Eat WorldInstagram/girleatworld

Melissa Hie does what probably most of us dream of doing: stuffing our faces while traveling in the world.

She just documents it in a really cool way.

The Singapore-based 29-year-old posts selfie-like photos of food or drinks with cities in the background on Instagram.

She started snapping these shots the summer of 2013 when she took a solo trip across Europe.

"If I wasn't traveling by myself, my pictures would have been just generic travel pictures," Hie said. "But since I was alone and I don't like asking people to take my picture, I just started taking them myself."

Some of her photos include a chocolate cookie in front of Big Ben, a Nutella-covered waffle in front of Brussels' Grand Palace, and even a Butterbeer in front of 4 Privet Drive.

Although her travels are mainly in Europe and Asia, she says on her profile that she will "eat absolutely anywhere."

Here are her photos and original captions from her Instagram account, girleatworld.

These eggs are regular chicken eggs, but were boiled in high temperature sulfur spring water which gives the color to its black shell. Eating each one is said to extend one's life by seven years, but you shouldn't eat more than two. They sell the eggs in packs of five though, so I ate all five. This was in Kurotama at Owakudani in Hakone, Japan.

Takoyaki at a small festival in Ueno, Asakusa area. Takoyaki is a common snack sold at such festivals in Japan. It's a ball of batter filled with diced octopus, ginger and green onion, served with takoyaki sauce, a bit of mayonnaise, and topped with aonori (seaweed shavings) and bonito (shavings of dried fish). It's then cooked in a special takoyaki pan to give its round shape. Delish!

Fresh spring roll from a random back alley in Pham Ngu Lao, Saigon's backpacker district. This is hands down my favorite appetizer ever! I love the texture of rice paper against the crunchy lettuce, and the nutty sauce that goes with it.
