10 foods to eat in seattle

Seattle-style hot dog - a hot dog topped with cream cheese and sautéed onions. I know this sounds weird, which was also my first thought but trust me on this one. Something about the cream cheese with the snap of the hot dog was just something amazing. We originally wanted to check out Monster Dogs … Continue reading 10 foods to eat in seattle

8 foods you should say, “bonjour” to in montreal

Poutine - fries with gravy and cheese curds. Need I say more? I don’t normally like soggy fries but somehow, this just works. Must be all the cheese. This dish originates from Quebec. Being that Montreal is IN Quebec, you won’t find a shortage of poutine places. I would think that it’s like finding a … Continue reading 8 foods you should say, “bonjour” to in montreal

10 foods you should say, “ni hao” to in china

I wish I got the chance to try a lot more food but unfortunately, we were only in China for about five days. As with any country, China has its regional cuisines (I highly recommend watching, “Flavorful Origins” on Netflix to learn more about Chaoshan and Yunnan cuisines). Being that China is one of the … Continue reading 10 foods you should say, “ni hao” to in china

  Gambas al ajillo - shrimp with garlic oil. You must love garlic in order to eat this dish. You’ll have garlic breath for days but it is SO worth it Patatas bravas - fried chunks of potatoes, usually paired with a spicy tomato sauce. I think I could live off of these Pintxos (pinchos) … Continue reading 25 foods to say hola to in spain

18 foods to eat in new orleans

Just make sure you pace yourself, since the food down here is pretty heavy. They seem to love butter and salt so drink plenty of water to balance out those sodium levels! Po’ boy - sandwich stuffed with fried seafood, usually shrimp, oysters, crawfish, or catfish. Probably my favorite New Orleanian food to eat Charbroiled/Chargrilled … Continue reading 18 foods to eat in new orleans

Fermented shark (hákarl)- although this might be the most disgusting thing I’ve ever eaten, it’s still worth trying, just to say you’ve tried fermented shark. Just to warn you: it does taste like how a toilet would smell. It is NOT pleasant, so make sure you have some sort of chaser to go with it. … Continue reading 8 foods you should say halló to in iceland

13 foods you should say “ahoj” to in prague

Steak tartare - served with toasted bread, and raw garlic, which you’re supposed to rub on the bread. This really brought out the flavor of the beef. Best of all, it was only 199 CZK (or about 9 USD). You definitely won’t find that deal in the States. Bramborak - potato pancakes. Who doesn’t love … Continue reading 13 foods you should say “ahoj” to in prague

Wiener Schnitzel - this means Viennese cutlet. The most popular version is a thinly-pounded piece of veal. I’m not a huge fan of veal, so I opted for the chicken, which is probably the second most popular. Viennese Sausage - I can’t compare it to the canned Vienna Sausage, since I’ve never had it, but this … Continue reading 8 foods to eat in vienna
