If you, like me, love visiting new places and getting to know different lifestyles, then you most likely are super into foodie travel as well.
Dishes and recipes speak to us on a whole other level: they delight our senses and let us know more about the history and culture of our many destinations. Through sugar and spice, we embrace and learn more about the wonderful diversity of our world.
Today, we want to share with you five exceptional, incredible foodie spots and snacks.
Argentine cuisine is internationally famous for its juicy empanadas and well-seasoned ‘asados’. When visiting the land of Gauchos, you will find endless opportunities to try flavors you’ve never had before.
One of these opportunities is Complejo Los Leones in Carlos Keen, a family estate with large open-air spaces perfect for groups, a wide array of entertainment options, and an extensive menu, full of traditional delicacies. Here, you can try it all, from delicious ‘alfajores with mate’, to full-course meals with the best steaks.
When visiting Rio de Janeiro and touring along the boardwalk, you may see street vendors carrying around white paper bags, offering them to tourists and locals alike. This is known as Biscoito Globo, a crunchy beach snack made of flour, sugar, and lots of tradition.
With over 60 years of history, Biscoito Globo has been deemed a Cultural Heritage of Rio de Janeiro, thus becoming a must-try, if you ever find yourself in this beautiful city.
Located in the Czech Republic, Prague is one of the most visited cities in the country. It is known for its diverse, colorful architecture and many museums –truly special urban sights.
In fact, there’s nothing quite like walking around and exploring the town with a delicious Trdelník in hand. This sweet treat is a traditional pastry found throughout Prague, perfect to accompany you while on a walk around the historic center.
Puerto Vallarta is a very popular destination, with a wide array of both cultural and foodie spots, as well as beaches for days. Along the shore, you will find vendors with wide hats and white shirts selling ‘pescado embarazado’, a typical snack, quite famous among locals.
It is also an inside joke since its name comes from ‘pescado en vara asado’ (roughly translated as ‘roasted fish on a stick’), which in Spanish kind of sounds like ‘pescado embarazado’, or ‘pregnant fish’. Quite clever.
If you like foodie travel, then you’ve most likely heard about Oktoberfest, the biggest beer celebration in Germany. What you may now know is that Munich has its own kind of Oktoberfest named Frühlingsfest, or Springfestival.
It takes place in April and May and has the same vibe, featuring strong, delicious German beers, tasty food, and mechanical games for never-ending fun.
We may be over five spots now, but as a quick bonus, we recommend the best food, as a fast snack. Skilled cooks in Pisa have it all figured out with pizza in a cone, perfect to carry with you while admiring the leaning tower.
