Alheira is a typical Portuguese sausage. Well, it’s more than a sausage. Contrary to most regular sausages, it isn’t usually made of pork but, instead, of a combination of meats. Most alheiras involve chicken, rabbit, duck and sometimes quail, rolled into shape with bread. Typical dishes in each country are … more »
The Meal Deal
Trying food from different parts of the World is one of the best things about traveling!
There is nothing more basic and yet more real and down-to-earth than experiencing food as locals do! This is something that humans do every day, so more than seeing monuments and touristic sights, eating should make you feel somehow local no matter where you are.
If you’re not sure how to start sampling the world, allow us to take you on a voyage of some of the most interesting culinary destinations on Earth with these articles:
If Asian food is your thing (and, in that case, you’re one of us!) why not take a remote food tour with us? We can show you around Bangkok through its food or take you on a virtual food walk of Taipei.
Are you traveling to India? We hope you have enough time on hands to make all your foodie dreams come true. Some people call it Incredible India. We prefer Edible India!
If there is a country that we have come to love during our travels and we had no idea what its food was all about, that has got to be Peru. Peruvian cuisine is still pretty unknown for the general masses and as such underrated too. We bet Peruvian food is going to be the next big thing!
Portuguese cuisine is also another gem yet to be discovered by many travelers. Zara is often asked what the food in Portugal is all about. As it’s not easy to sum it up, here’s an intro to Portuguese food to get your juices flowing. If you are planning a trip to Lisbon, make sure you read the ultimate Lisbon Food Guide first!
Food tours, cooking classes, fancy eats or back-alley snacks… we love exploring new regions through their food. And we hope you’re hungry enough to join us!

Dim Sum Friends
No land displays the cute factor in everyday aspects of life like Thailand does. At least I have never traveled anywhere else that could remotely compare.
