There are many reasons to travel. Food is obviously, one of them! When visiting a country, there’s always a handful of must try foods out there… dishes, which serve us the essence, flavour, aroma and culture of the country. You’ve read about them in magazines and blogs, had friends and guide books recommend it to you or maybe you’ve discovered some of these dishes on your own, from locals and your own travel experiences. Either way, these must-try foods will add another souvenir experience to the country you’re visiting.
❤ Vietnam :
The Vietnamese ‘Pho Ga‘, my favorite soup in the world.
❤ Serbia :
This is a fresh fish from the Danube River. Had this on a little floating restaurant in Belgrade. Easily the best meal I had in Serbia.
❤ Jordan :
On the trip to our neighbours in Petra, we had a little stop to try the local Mansaf, lamb cooked in yogurt with rice.
❤ Mexico :
Mexican Huarache. LOVE this thing.
❤ Italy :
The BEST Pizza I’ve had in my entire life. Apparently, Italy is a zillion levels above the rest of the world.
❤ Taiwan :
Picked a random little restaurant in Taiwan and ordered
this. It looks disgusting, but I swear its delicious.
❤ Montenegro :
Organic grass-fed Montenegrin Beef Liver, one of the richest sources of B12. Comes with fresh tomato sauce. Beyond amazing.
❤ Nicaragua :
Nicaraguan Beef Heart, a nutritious source of cholesterol and healthy saturated fats to boost testosterone levels.
❤ Burma (Myanmar) :
Fell in love with those rich beefy soups of Burma. Rich in a variety of flavors from every angle.
❤ France :
Roasted SNAILS I had in an Alsacian village. They were so good I finished the whole thing in a minute.
❤ El Salvador :
Baby shrimps with veggies and rice in Playa El Tunco, El Salvador.
❤ Greece :
Had this Greek salad on the island of Rhodes. Made of lettuce, dried tomatoes, Greek cheese and an unbelievably rich sauce made of balsamic vinegar mixed with something which I forgot.
❤ United States of America :
In the country of land whales, donuts are a staple. Had that on my last trip to the U.S. And Im not being an asshole. I really do love donuts, especially on cheat days.
❤ Kosovo :
Kosovarian friends were enthusiastic to let me try their favorite food. I dont remember its name, but its quite good.
❤ Thailand :
Best food I’ve had in Thailand. Go have it in Flow Restaurant, Soi Ngam Dupli, Bangkok.
❤ Georgia :
Georgian KHINKALI (meat dumplings) with Khvanchkara, Stalins favorite wine. Right from the Her Father Will Kill You chapter in Destination Poon.
❤ Ethiopia :
Sorry, Ethiopian fellas. No matter how much I tried to love your national Injera, I just couldnt.
❤ Armenia :
The quality of Caucasus kebab is outstanding. You can always see the cattle freely roaming the grass outside.
❤ Costa Rica :
Ah, the colors of Costa Rican food! This is an amazing fish fillet I had a night before bungeeing in Monte Verde. Pura Vida!
❤ Romania :
Romanian pork, cabbage and Polenta (aka Mamaliga), Romanias famous mashed corn with cream.
❤ Philippines :
This is the first thing I ate in the Philippines: Stuffed squid.
❤ Belize :
Delicious stew of two armadillos we hunted in a Belizean jungle. Cooked with pineapples and some local spices.
❤ Singapore :
Had this beauty on my very last trip to Asia. Its from Singapore, and its so spicy I couldn’t bear more than a dozen bites.
❤ ISRAEL :
Oh, my beloved ISRAEL. This hummus is two minutes away from my home. With garbanzo beans, olive oil, paprika, eggs and parsley. Beyond delicious.
❤ Panama :
Just a normal meal in Panama. Had this plate of beef and veggies in Valle de Anton. Might have been the last meal I had before the famous horse incident from my book.
❤ Japan :
This alone is worth the visit to Japan. Its a thousand times better than the crap sold cheaply in most Western places.
❤ India :
Biryani is an evergreen classic that really needs no introduction. India offers so much on its culinary platter but the one dish Indians unanimously love indulging in is the mouth-watering biryani.
❤ Hungary :
This is a Rabbits leg I had in a restaurant in Budapest, Hungary. It tastes just as it looks: AMAZING.
❤ South Korea :
It may look extraordinary, but its really just a typical meal in South Korea. Lots of good stuff inside.
❤ The Seychelles :
Grilled parrot fish with rice. Had this in-between island hopping in the beautiful Seychelles.
❤ Cyprus :
Enjoying the benefits of coffee with a typical relaxation meal in Cyprus: Halloumi cheese & watermelon. DELICIOUS.
❤ Canada :
Beef tenderloin in cranberry sauce. Had this in Niagara Falls, Canada.
