It is fast, easy, but never lacking in flavour- that's the joyous thing about street food. 

Street food is designed to fuel busy people who only have a little pocket change to spare and almost no time. 

Almost every city has several restaurants around that specialise in bringing street style food to its people, and here is what the city of Durban has to offer.
