To Go

Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Foodie Holidays is a gourmand's ultimate checklist. While I'm proud of my appetite for having feasted on 3 of the 10 dishes [New Orleans gumbo, NYC hot dogs and Malaysia's nasi goreng], I can't help but crave the rest. Next month I'm heading to Mumbai and fully intend to fill my fourth spot with the touted curry. What other meals would you include on this savory list?

Tapas in Barcelona, Spain
Doner kebab in Istanbul, Turkey
Pasta in Naples, Italy
Steamed dumplings in Shanghai, China
Feijoada in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Gumbo in New Orleans, USA
Couscous in Casablanca, Morocco
Nasi Goreng in Penang, Malaysia
Curry in Mumbai, India
Hot dog in New York City, USA

Gosh...I'm suddenly so hungry!

Meg said...

Yum! I've had Feijoada a few times, but never in Rio! I need to go!

Is it bad that it's before 9am and I want all of that in my belly?

Kate, I have dreams of taking trips JUST for the food. That's sort of gluttonous, but I can't help it. Being from Louisiana we're trained in two things: food and drink. And I think that's pretty fantastic!

I think you are headed in the right direction my friend in the food trips catagory. I need to raid our fridge. xo

so happy these are all foods we would like to eat rather than a list that might include chocolate dipped grasshoppers or something...they all sound adventureously wonderful!

How about Kimchi rice.

It's Korean mom's lazy pack lunch. Why lazy? it's the easiest but tastiest rice meal you can prepare in less than 10mins , , so easy to prepare. . pre heat one table spoon of oil and and one table spoon of butter. . add half cup of cabbage kimchi .. saute it for about 3 minutes the add 1 and half cup of rice mix well crack one whole egg and when egg is done serve it steaming hot . . .enjoy.

Wow, I need to get out of the country! I have only had Tapas in Barcelona and Gumbo in Nola.

I would add She Crab Soup in Charleston, SC or Shrimp and Grits from either Charleston or New Orleans. I know, so Southern-centric!

dumplings in China!!
