Unique Dishes and Destinations for Travelling Foodies

Aug 30, 2023 | Featured Articles, Travel

Marrakech, Morocco
Marrakech transforms every meal into an experience. Exotic spices and irresistible aromas fill every street, turning a simple stroll into a stomach-rumbling mission to track down the finest food.

If you’re feeling daring, try a sheep’s head – a popular delicacy. Otherwise play it safe and order a traditional Moroccan tagine dish slow-cooked in a clay pot, or try a harira – a tasty lentil soup often used during Ramadan to break the fast.

San Sebastian, Spain
Famous for the pintxos – Basque tapas bars that litter its streets – the small city of San Sebastián is widely recognised as one of the world’s best food destinations. It even has one of the highest number of Michelin stars per square metre, beating the likes of New York and Paris!

However, if you’re on a tighter budget, head for the street markets to get your hands on fresh seafood and pintxos – small pieces of bread topped with a variety of ingredients.

New Orleans, USA
New Orleans is a melting pot of fantastic food. Notes from Native Americans, French settlers, Africans, Southern American culture, and Caribbean, Creole and Cajun spices combine to create a forever-changing array of flavours. 

Three distinct dishes are: the po-boy, an overstuffed sandwich of seafood or roast beef; gumbo, a West African stew; and beignets, deep-fried dough dusted with powdered sugar.

Hanoi, Vietnam
Balancing salty, sweet, sour and spicy flavours, Vietnam’s cuisine blends the country’s French colonial past and its neighbouring Asian countries, while still retaining its own identity.

Hanoi is famous for its street food. Grab yourself a table and slurp up some pho. Perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the banh mi is another must-try: a Vietnamese-style baguette filled with egg, pickled vegetables or meat.

Tokyo, Japan
At the heart of Japanese cuisine, there’s Tokyo. With thirty Michelin-starred sushi restaurants sprawled across the city, it goes without saying that it’s home to the finest sushi you’ll ever taste. Then there’s warming ramen, soba noodles, delicious katsu curry and okomiyaki – a thick pancake filled with whatever you want, grilled on a hot plate on your table.

Lima, Peru
Peru’s capital city is widely regarded as a global gastronomy destination to rival that of Buenos Aires. You can’t visit Lima without trying the nation’s signature dish: ceviche. You’ll find variations of this zesty dish, made from fresh raw fish, everywhere you go.

If you pride yourself on being an adventurous foodie, try Anticucho – a grilled cow heart on skewers. Peruvians eat guinea pig too – or cuy as it’s known locally. It’s a delicacy, but you can find it in restaurants all over the city.
