What’s your favorite midnight snack? We might all have our individual favorites, but as nations we do have a trend. Of course, this is highly generalized but come with me on a journey around the world in late night snacks.
1. Japan – Udon

You may think that you are well versed in the world of hot dogs, but until you have tried a traditional Brazilian dog known as a cachorro quente, you simply haven’t lived!

Though the doner kebab is something that is popular throughout Europe, there is something about the sandwich-like nature of the German variety that makes it absolutely perfect for a late-night snack.
