In this Brazilian city you will find more than 12 thousand places to eat and more than 15 thousand bars where you can have a drink. Among its most typical dishes is the one from São Paulo (you can see it in the image).

The first European destination on the list is Athens, the capital of Greece. The city has managed to sneak into the ranking thanks to the unique flavors of its cuisine, which has a tradition of more than 4,000 years, yes, influenced by neighboring countries.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s largest city, is ranked fifth on the list. Above all, the street stalls stand out, where you can enjoy noodles of all shapes and sizes, grilled satay skewers and very spicy curry, among other things.
Surely what most catches your attention in Australia is not its gastronomy, but the truth is that it is increasingly valued. In fact, Melbourne has slipped into sixth place in the ranking. Due to the predominance of British cuisine, cakes and especially meatloaf stand out.
We return to Asia to tell you about Bangkok, another city that stands out for its street food . Best of all, the price of food is affordable for everyone.
In eighth position we find Granada, where you can enjoy exquisite dishes. Of course, if there is something that we must highlight in the Andalusian city, it is its tapas .
Las Vegas, United States
The United States is also represented in the top 10 thanks to Las Vegas. The best thing about the gastronomy of this city is that its restaurants reflect the multiculturalism of diverse origins.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Finally, we must talk about Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital. It is important to bear in mind that the gastronomy of the city is characterized by the influence of Italian and Spanish food, so red meat, fish, pasta and empanadas stand out.
