Let’s face it.
No vacation trip is complete without tasting a place’s gourmet dish. No weekend getaway is also complete without trying a place’s specialty dish. No leisurely walk outside is even complete without getting a dose of street food.
But do you know what makes all these even more complete?
It’s the fact that you can enjoy food anywhere, even if you’re just watching birds fly at the side of the road with spotting scopes.
That being said, here’s a tip and an idea if you want to enjoy food anywhere:
Look around you.
As they say, the best things happen unexpectedly. This also goes when you’re looking to enjoy food anywhere. You’ll never know. That hole-in-the-wall pasta place might have been serving everyone in the country since the 20th century. You’ll also never know. That almost-completely-run-down pizza place might have been serving all over the world since the 1980s. All you need to do is look around you.
Go where the locals go.
As they say, do as the Romans do. This also goes when you’re looking to enjoy food anywhere. You’ll never know. That place with great seafood dishes is owned by that couple usually seen in a famous bar. You’ll also never know. That place with great steak dishes is owned by that man usually seen in a popular café. All you need to do is go where the locals go.
BONUS: Make your own.
Believe it or not, the greatest way to enjoy food anywhere is by making your own. But in this case, it means creating dishes based on where you are. Let’s say, you’re currently roaming around Mexico. Why not try making your own burrito to pack while on the go? You will not only save money, but also get to see more of a place’s history, as well as experience more of a place’s culture – and yes, just by making your own.
Indeed, you can enjoy food anywhere. And indeed, you can enjoy food anywhere by doing simple things such as looking around you, going where the locals go, and making your own.
How about you? Do you look around you? Do you go where the locals go? Do you make your own? How was your experience with these things as you look to enjoy food anywhere?
Even more so, does it make a difference when you’re eating somewhere as you usually do? If yes, how? If no, why?
