The Street Food of Athens, Greece

... under the looming gaze of the Parthenon, lies the Monastiraki section of the city. Take a stroll through this bustling neighborhood where vendors sell fish, meat and vegetables alongside more touristy fare of T-shirts, worry beads and replicas of ancient vases, and you'll come across one of my all-time favorite treats : roast chestnuts. You have to work a little at peeling back the crispy outer layer, but it's worth it! Chestnut vendors sell roast corn as well -- tastes great with a sprinkle of Greek sea salt on top.
