November’s themed #TravelTuesday post is brought to you by my lovely co-host Courtney of Adelante blog: ‘Best and Worst Cuisines’. As an avid lover of food myself, who loves to write blog posts about where to eat, I have been looking forward to this prompt all week.
From my nomadic upbringing I stand behind the fact that a great way to experience a new place is to try the food. So with that I begin this post by sharing the worst cuisines I have tasted. Do not worry I do not have instagram pics to share with this portion. I do have a big tip when traveling: Eat where the locals eat. By pass the resturants near tourist locations. Ask locals where their favourite places are to eat. Find those hole in the wall places off the beaten bath. From experience I have tasted just how the ‘tourist traps’ water down their food for the tourist palate. Not to mention the prices on said cruisines also go up.
The best cruisines. Honestly my eyes light up when I talk about places I have been and the subject of food is not far off from my lips.
- There are the fresh strawberries I had when my family first arrived in Oslo, Norway.
- The germknodel up on the slopes in Austria in between my snowboarding adventures.
- The spaghetti and house wine at the resturant on the marina in Sorrento.
- Mama’s Thai fried rice around the corner from where we taught English in Bangkok, Thailand.
Those are certainly not the only best cruisines I have had around the world and I know they will not be the last. However the important fact to me is that they have been experienced.
For that reason I love to try new places in my backyard in my expat life to share with you to experience too. Some of my favourites have been:
The Tiroler Hut, an Austrian restaurant in London, England
The Cosy Club here in Bath is where I love to escape for a cup of tea and brunch.
Another must try place in Bradford on Avon is the Bridge Tea room. My photos from this post were also featured on BuzzFeed with 21 Absolutely Charming Tea Rooms You Have To Visit Before You Die
