Daebak Brothers always hit the mark when it comes to mouthwatering and penny-pinching Korean snacks.

Tteokbokki is their best-seller, a bowl of soft and chewy rice cakes taking a flavorful plunge into a sweet and spicy sauce. The resto spices up this traditional dish with variety, with weird but delish twists like adding honey butter or carbonara.

Those not in the mood for fiery Korean servings can delight themselves with street-style corndogs. These bad boys are served cheesy, but you can up the flavor levels by selecting the one packed with premium German sausages.

Sunflower Street Eats’ Vietnamese cold rolls bring in the heat. These rolls are full of grilled meat or prawns and served with a peanut dipping sauce, but you’re free to go nuts and experiment with the fillings and condiments.

The resto’s mini goodness also pulls in a crowd hungry for a small but flavor-packed meal.  Some of their bite-sized bangers include the smoky BBQ quail, minced crab meat dressed with plum sauce, and sticky pork dumplings covered in fish sauce.

If these tiny bites don’t satisfy your palate, give their bowl meals a go. Fulfilling bowl options like squid salad and roast pork will make you hit the streets again with a happy tummy.

Food trucks are key players in the Adelaide street food scene, and Simply Flammekueche is one of the top dogs. True to its name, this mobile resto is the maestro of the artisanal delight Flammekueche, a German thin-crust specialty pizza.

The classic OG Flammekueche should be your first pick. With its crème fraiche, and smoked bacon, you’ll savor flavors that don’t break centuries of culinary tradition.

There’s also a cheesy leek version with Emmenthal taking center stage. This one doesn’t have bacon but bursts with a garlicky kick.

You can hire Simply Flammekueche as a caterer for private events like weddings, school shindigs, or corporate conferences.

Oysters usually aren’t the first thing to come to mind when talking about street food, but Samtass Seafood’s freshly shucked delights can change this perception.

Their oysters are sweet and succulent and can be elevated flavorwise if ordered with Thai dressing or black caviar.
