I’m big on food, it’s one of my major passions alongside travelling and the two go together so well! So thought I’d compile a list of my favourite foods from all the countries I’ve visited:
Australia – Hot/Iced Chocolate (depending on the weather) and chocolate fondue at Theobroma Chocolate Lounge.
Bali – Nasi Padang, a rice dish with a selection of toppings, curries and sauces.
Canada – Maple Syrup preferably with bacon and pancakes. Alternatively straight out the jar, yum.
China (Hong Kong) – Wanton Noodle Soup and BBQ pork buns
Egypt – Koshery, a pasta, rice, lentil, chickpea disk with tomato sauce.. ridiculously good! Or Kebabs and Falafel. Try Nestle Pops for dessert, like ice cream filled chocolates, yum!
Fiji – Kava, the Fijian version of alcohol and Lovo, meet and veg wrapped in palm leaves and slow cooked in an underground oven.
France – Fresh bread with Cheese and locally produced wine.
Iceland – Whale Steak and shots of Brennivin, Iceland’s favourite spirit.
India – Any one of the amazing curries, tandoori and roti
Kuala Lumpur – Roti with dhal and curry sauce.
Laos – If youve been travelling awhile: Fresh bread and Parisian style cafes packed with pastries and bread, if you wanna go local: Sticky rice with barbecued chicken, or small parcels of meet and rice wrapped in lettuce.
Morocco – Tagine! My favourites are: Lamb, prune and almond or pickled lemon and chicken.
Netherlands – Brownies 😉
New Zealand – Fish and chips, fresh from any of the coastal towns & Fergburgers, without a doubt the best burger I’ve ever eaten, Queenstown.
Rwanda – Chicken and rice, its basically all you can find, meals are big on carbs so expect rice, 2 types of potatoes and matoke (plantain) but it can be really good when done well!
Singapore – Singapore Sling Cocktail at the bar where it was invented: Raffles Long Bar and Chili Crab in China town
South Korea – Hoddeok, a brown sugar syrup filled pancake and Hanjeongsik, a traditional Korean set meal of tonnes of tiny dishes.
Spain – Tapas and paella
Switzerland – Cheese fondue & Hot Chocolate
Tanzania – Rafiki Milkshake, containing banana, milk, icecream and malibu
Thailand – Tom Kha Gai and Butter bread with pandan or chocolate spread at Mont Nom Sod, Bangkok.
Uganda – Matoke (steamed plaintain) and plaintain chips.
UK – Gotta be the famous roast dinners or fish and chips.
USA – Anything BBQ style and of course bottomless fries.
Zanzibar – Forodhani Gardens food night market, for cheap fresh seafood from lobster to oysters at ridiculously cheap prices. Also try the Zanzibar Pizza, a pancake/omelette collaboration with the filling of your choice, everything from beef, cheese, coconut, seafood, nutella bananas, you name it theyll cook it!
