Out of every possible experience and memory that can be made while visiting the magical world of Disney, nothing can beat its endless world of sweets & desserts!
Sometimes we get an image or idea stuck in our head or we automatically associate it with someone or something. That’s why my title has the quirky subtitle of “…and no, it’s not all potatoes!”
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is Vietnam’s culinary capital with an eclectic variety of delicious cuisine to choose from. If you’re looking for an authentic and budget friendly experience, visiting one or all of the below street food destinations will offer you a chance to try different menu items without the commitment of a full blown restaurant experience. Pick the stalls where you see the most locals ordering from and you can't go wrong!
Mexico is a country rich in its culture and family bond. Yeah, the country could be dangerous to go with all the drug cartel killing but when you are looking at the culture and family bond the Mexicans have, it is such a beautiful thing. Everything from the religion to the language to the food—you could see how it is—but what people do not see is also the drinks.
Here is a quick look at the list of must-try places at Tallinn.
Thank god for American junk food! I've landed 29 days ago on the American continent and, goshh, do I go crazy for all this ridiculous awesome food! I know, I know, today in our society junk food is almost as taboo as saying Voldermort in Harry Potter. I'm even part of that community, you know, the super annoying community that wants to take care of its body, eat better and healthier so as to stay fit and die much older. That community that pushes you to exercise at least once a week - "I promise, try walking for 30 minutes each day, you'll love it and won't be able to stop" - yes, that community! Or at least, I used to be part of it back in Europe and then I got to the U.S.
I will admit that I love food more than most people and can claim to be a true turophile (a connoisseur of cheese: a cheese fancier). So I wasn't surprised when no other tourists we spoke to also had a full itinerary of every meal. I mean, I'm all for "going with the flow," but not when you are in the food capital of the world. Seriously, there are people that wait until they are hungry enough and stop to eat. Yes, they could find a diamond in the rough, but chances are they are about to buy overpriced tourist food (cringe). Is it that people don't care about eating the most delicious food as possible or that they don't have access to modern technology??
Did you know you’ll probably pay a hefty fine if you buy a cold beer or a hot toddy for a moose in Fairbanks, AK? Ensuring the Last Frontier’s moose are teetotalers is just one of the weirdest food laws in the USA. We live in one of the most litigious countries in the world, so it makes sense that some of our food laws are downright odd, strange, and somewhat unnecessary. I’m really a burger and fries kind of diner myself, and I’m a pizza addict, so I’m rarely doing anything illegal at the table. You might be a bit more adventurous than I am, so here’s a baker’s dozen of some of the weirdest food laws in the USA—keep them in mind whenever you sally forth on a culinary adventure.
**Some of the Just Grubbin crew made its way to Austin, TX. While there, they got to experience some of the local attractions and of course the delicious grub.**
Anywhere you go in the world, you're going to encounter new foods, ranging from interesting to just... weird. I didn't use to think that eating is a vital part of the travel experience, but boy was I wrong! My dear husband, himself a foreigner, instilled in me a passion and interest in food that I now can't ignore—and I'm grateful to him for unlocking a whole new aspect of life! Therefore, while in Sicily, I made sure to try some of the signature unusual foods that are characteristic for Sicily, not just for Italy—so I'll obviously be skipping the pizza and the pasta in this post.
A few years ago, a map—created by the OECD—made the rounds on the Internet, showing the sites of Nutella’s headquarters, sales offices, factories, and sources of all the popular chocolate hazelnut spread’s ingredients. The map was quite impressive; Nutella had quite literally spread itself to all ends of the earth. The advancements of globalization, and improvements in technology and transportation in recent decades, have made it possible for the food on your table to come from practically anywhere. But it also got me thinking: if the food I eat can come from almost anywhere on this earth, how far is it really travelling to get to me? And what kind of impact does this vast distance have on the planet?
