The primary purpose of travel is to experience different cultures and ways of living. To be another person for a few days and to unravel our adventurous streak. And what better way to do all this, that to discover it through cuisine?!
Food tells us an immense lot about a place, ingredients, culture and geology!
Some of our favourite food from across world is listed below. We discovered untold secrets and old classics with new twists, adding great joy to our travels! If you still need more reasons to get experimental with your food when you travel, we tell you why we love it!
SAME FOOD, DIFFERENT STYLE:
Almost everything we have in India is Indian-ised. With masalas and paneer. While that may not be bad, if you don’t experiment, you’d never know the real taste of the original lasagna or machurian or bagels or shawarma!
SLICE OF CULTURE:
The plate represents thought, philosophy and culture. The French food is artistic and elaborate, the Italians love their coffee and wines and the Thai love it spicy! These are all reflections of what the people in those countries love, and there’s nothing better to experience it than with food!
There’s nothing more exciting than making new discoveries. Did you know how fresh the fruits in Turkey can be, or the mangosteen of South East Asia, or the absolutely heavenly Chocopolagie Truffle of Denmark? How incomplete would your world be if you traveled, and din’t try these?!
We all would agree that there’s nothing quite like meal times to connect with people. Whether it’s about the recipe, the ingredients, sports, weather, arts or history, food gets strangers talking. And isn’t that the most beautiful part of traveling?
Bring the world back home: Loved the trufle in France? Or the very different cheese in Russia? Or the specific chocolate sauce in Japan? Bring it back home! Use it in your kitchen to whip up your own delicacy!
We give you our top picks on why we love traveling to some countries and what are our favourite dishes to try!
BÁNH MÌ – HO CHI MINH CITY
A product of French colonization in South East Asia, popularly known as the Vietnamese Hoagie, it is a mix of fabulous ingredients from the East and the West. It’s a humble sandwich, but surely nothing like you may have ever eaten before.
DÜRÜM – ISTANBUL
Delectable meat, usually lamb, you could opt for chicken or veal too, wrapped in Turkish Yufka or Armenian Lavash, this ‘roll’ is a must try when you visit Istanbul. Packed with vegetables, hot sauce and herbed yogurt, makes for a superb late night snack.
SUPPLÌ – ROME
Fried rice ball, aptly named after the word ‘surprise’, which comes from the oozing mozzarella inside. The ingredients have more or less remained the same over the last century, mainly comprising tomato, rice, ragu (ground beef) and mozzarella. Recently you will find some chicken gizzards added to the mix as well.
CRÊPES – PARIS
From savoury to sweet, you can chose to satiate your craving for this omnipresent French Street food any time of the day or night. Finger licking good, these are a must have when you make a trip to beloved Paris.
CHURROS – SPAIN
Long crispy fried donuts with a helping of rich chocolate sauce. Makes for a fabulous breakfast treat. Well, not everyday, but if you are travelling and are in Spain for a short while, why not?
CHEESE FONDUE – SWITZERLAND
A trip to any part of Switzerland would be truly incomplete, without digging in to its magnificent cheese fondue.
