We shall always remember Merida (in Yucatan, Mexico) if, for anything else, at least for the huge ice-cream we had in Paseo Montejo! This was somehow a fancy spot, as we could see customers were mainly tourists (we did end up here thanks to Wikitravel, after all!) and well-off Mexican … 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!
Campeche is a very beautiful town in Mexico. If you have ever seen the TV show Gilmore Girls and like the feel of fictional town Stars Hollow, this would be the real-life alternative to it! The only down-side of Campeche for us was the shortage of places to eat! … more »
Adults are always trying to come up with new ways of seducing kids into enjoying fruits and veggies. Well, in Mexico I think they have that covered, as they enjoy mangoes on the coolest on-the-go way I have ever seen: on a stick! They peel it for you, cut it … more »
If you don’t like corn, do not come to Mexico! Or do come, but bring your own food!… Jokes aside, Mexicans do love corn and their diet is heavilly based around it. “Tortillas” is their flat bread made out of corn dough and it’s a staple side in all … more »
I have a feeling Mexican people love pastries and cakes… In the big hypermarkets there is always a HUGE sweets section, that make the bread selection look much tinier. Croissants, danishes, “conchas” (sort of milky bread with sugary icing on top), muffins, cookies… plenty to choose from! And the fun … more »
Warm and aromatic, this Mexican treat is a definite winner. The coffee is light and this enhances the Cinnamon-ny experience that it brings with it. Make sure you ask for Cafe de Olla when you’re in Mexico!
