There are many reasons we love to travel: the beautiful views, amazing art, and fun adventures; But one thing no trip would be the same without is food. Wherever you go in the world, the local food can tell you a lot about the locals and their culture, and can expose you to different flavors and ingredients the can’t be found anywhere else.
Whether you’re an adventurous foodie or still working on letting yourself try new things, here’s a list of destinations with some of the best cuisines in the world:
- Italy– Pizza. Pasta. What else do you need to know? The Italian cuisine is one of the most famous and loved in the world, with rich flavours, fresh produce, and carbs. Lots of carbs. A trip across the country can provide a variety of different dishes and flavors, each region with its unique traditions. Don’t skip the pizza in Napoli, the gelato in Rome, and the wine in Tuscany.
- Ethiopia– If you have never tried Ethiopian food, you’re in for a treat. The local cuisine focuses on different kinds of spiced stews, served with the local flatbread. The capital, Addis Ababa, is the food capital of the country, perfect for whoever wants to taste everything in a short period of time. The city is filled with vibrant restaurants, where you can not only enjoy the local flavors, but also experience the culture, music and dancing of the locals.
- New York City– After trying the pizza in Italy, come to NYC to try what considers to be the second best pizza in the world. New York is famous not just for its pizza, but for an extremely wide range of cultures and cuisines from all over the world. A food trip in NYC is basically the a trip around the world in a day, from polish food in the East Village, to southern food in Harlem, and Jewish food in Brooklyn. This city has it all.
- Japan– You haven’t actually had sushi before you tried a true Japanese sushi. If you’re a big sushi lover like me, that should be enough to make your next trip a Japan trip, but if not for that, go for the best foodie adventures in the small restaurants of the back allies of Tokyo. A Japanese dinner can be more than just about the food, but about diving in a fascinating culture of manners and rituals.
