Food is essential for our survival. But some people consider eating food a type of art. The foodies out there could relate, couldn’t you? The love for food is real, and the people who eat food without any restriction are the happiest. Unfortunately, there are a wide variety of cuisines and dishes to explore all around the world and there is only so much time life has given us to spend. But life is long enough for us to try out the best of them. So, pack your bags and here we go on a trip around the world to experience the different dishes it has to offer us. As a foodie and hungry explorer, we present some places that must feature on your travel bucket list without fail.
Let’s start our trip with the native of all our favorite – Pizzas. Almost everyone can attest that pizzas are probably one of the best food out there. Pizzeria da Michele in Naples is known to be the home of the authentic pizza napoletana or Neapolitan Pizza, which is apparently baked with an extreme precision. Aren’t you going to join the tourists flocking there to get a taste of the sacred dish cooked at its home?
Rivalling the more international Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi’s compact old center is arguably the better place to sample the balance of salt, sweet, sour and spice in Vietnamese cuisine. Eat like a local and take to the streets for freshly prepared dishes such as pho tiu noodles with a sweet and sour soup, pork and fish sauce; banh mi, a baguette filled with pate, cucumber, herbs, crispy onion and chilli.
Jaipur is one of the few places that represent the cooking of the Rajputs, the warrior princes who ruled most of Rajasthan up until the Sixties. Hunting and expeditions were a big part of it, so chargrilling and barbecuing are well showcased in Rajasthani cooking. Laal maas, a fiery Rajasthani goat curry, is known for its spiciness (45 chillies to a kilo of goat) throughout the world.
The Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo is one of the places that serve some mouth-watering local seafood delicacies that will leave you wanting for more. Out of the wide array of choices available in Japanese cuisine, some of the must-have best food in the world are tempura, sashimi, sushi, soba, sukiyaki, miso soup, and unagi (definitely not what Ross thinks it is).
This culinary capital of Denmark is one of the best places to travel for food and is currently playing host to some of the best dishes out there. Smørrebrød, or open-faced sandwiches, are a must-have for every first-timer in the city for various reasons. Generous toppings of salmon, boiled eggs, and radishes are artfully stacked on sourdough rye bread, making it the perfect lunch for sandwich lovers.
Bologna is known in Italy as “La Grassa” – “The Fat One” – after its food. Numerous specialities have originated here, most famously “bolognese” sauce and “baloney” (Bologna) sausage, or mortadella. Food-lovers will find the city teeming with food stores, street markets and a fantastic range of eating options, from fine dining to simple trattorias.
Some of the legendary tacos that have been made by the chefs all over the world are usually featured at the fish market at Ensenada. You can also find a plethora of fresh seafood including shrimp cocktails and fish filets there. If you are fish-eater, these fish tacos are worth dying for and are surely one of the tastiest food in the world.
