Let’s face it, few things are as great as tasty food. Whether you’re a full-blown food blogger or you’re simply someone that can get down on a tasty meal when you have the chance, traveling the world to experience some of the different cuisines out there is a dream come true. If you’re ready to turn this dream into a reality, there are some countries that you need to make sure you have on your radar.
When it comes to deciding which country you’re going to visit first, the final decision is one that you should be confident in. Today we’re going to touch on a few of the countries that every foodie needs to take some time to visit and indulge in. Which one you choose to visit, however, is entirely up to you!
If Italy isn’t on the list of countries that you want to visit, you need to think twice. Without a doubt, Italy is one of the must-visit countries for individuals that love food. In fact, this country is known it’s delicious dishes. Diving into a warm bowl of handmade pasta covered in a savory, freshly made sauce is what dreams are made of, right?
Aside from fresh pasta, you can enjoy delicious pizzas, warm bread, cheesy risotto, and so much more. If that doesn’t have your mouth watering, we would be more than happy to talk about some of the sweet desserts that you would have the chance to indulge in. But, for the sake of finishing this blog, we’ll leave it at that and continue on to the next country.
We know, we know. Mexican food can be found in various parts of the country, so why go all the way to Mexico to enjoy it? For starters, authentic Mexican food is pretty difficult to find, and if you’ve found a place here in Colorado, be sure to pass that information on to us. Anyhow, Mexico is known for having some incredible dishes. The fresh fruit, vegetables, and spices used in their dishes are just one of the reasons that you simply can’t compare any stateside “Mexican food” to the real deal.
One of the many reasons that we love Mexican food is that it has so many different influencers that contribute. There are touches of Indian, African, and European dishes in quite a few Mexican dishes, which makes them all the more enjoyable! Another component of dining in Mexico that you might enjoy is the experience itself. Most meals are spent with close friends and family, chatting away and enjoying the company of one another. When you combine good food with good friends, you wind up having a good time!
Another country whose cuisine doesn’t compare to the restaurants that try and serve it here in the states is Japan. Everything that is done in Japan is concise, including their food. The dishes created are meticulous in their ingredients but also in their presentation. Even if you have tried and fallen in love with the sushi, unagi, sashimi, or ramen that you’ve tried here in the U.S., you have no idea what awaits you in Japan.
For starters, everything is incredibly fresh. Can you imagine the difference in your sushi when the fish that is used for your rolls was caught the same day? That’s something that you’re definitely not going to be enjoying in most Japanese restaurants here in the U.S. Pair your freshly caught meal with some white rice and sake, and you’ve got everything you need.
Another reason that Japan is a great place to enjoy a quality meal is that they too have some factors that make the dining experience unique. For starters, the chances of you finding a fork or spoon to eat with are slim. Enjoying a nice meal with chopsticks is something that you should anticipate when you decide to head to Japan to enjoy a meal, so it’s best to get some practice in beforehand.
The dishes that you can enjoy in France are something that you need to experience firsthand. Believe it or not, France is actually the country that most culinary schools look to when teaching their students. Aside from the fact that their food has countless classics that are loved among many, France is known for having a contemporary view on their food.
Pastries are one of the food items that France is known for, and for a good reason! Croissants and macarons can be found in every pastry in town. The best part is, they’re all equally delicious. You could easily spend every day in France trying a new pastry! Eat it on a stroll down the beautifully paved streets, or you sit out front the cafe and listen to the local’s exchange conversation in their native tongue, either way, you’re going to make the most of France and all that it has to offer.
