  city's culture and taste dishes you wouldn't usually get to try.
  
  The list of top festivals includes plenty of barbecue
  cook-offs, a Thai food festival, and an event 
    paying homage to Asia's famous night markets. 
  
  According to Yelp, the best food festival in the country is
  the SOS Wild and Crazy Taco Night, which is held in April in
  Costa Mesa, California.
