Taste Your Way Round The World With These Foods

When you travel you can’t help but think about all of the amazing new foods you get to try. So, if you’re adventurous with your food we have found some mouth-watering dishes that we just had to share with you. Before we share our finds though, we have to ask one thing –can you make it through this article without drooling?

Australia – Kangaroo Loin

When visiting Australia what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Let us guess, crocs, emus, or koala bears, and we bet kangaroos aren’t too far down on your list either! But the question is would you actually eat it? Usually cooked like steak, kangaroo is widely available in most supermarkets but is only served in a few restaurants. So, if you want to try some we suggest you do your research and find a recommended restaurant.

Barbados – Roti

This Bajan favourite may look like a burrito to most, but trust us it’s not. In fact, this thin tortilla is usually filled with curried meat such as chicken, beef or fish. And did you know when Rihanna heads home this is usually the first dish she has? So, if it’s good enough for RiRi it’s good enough for us.

Costa Rica – Gallo Pinto

This Costa Rican recipe is the countries staple dish. Made up of rice and beans this may sound fairly bland, but it’s not. If you haven’t been to Costa Rica most of you will be thinking “It’s just rice and beans, what’s so special about that?” Trust us this isn’t the case and you’ll soon find yourself asking the question “can I have some more?”

Dominican Republic – Los Tres Golpes

A good day in the Dominican starts with a substantial breakfast – and on this Caribbean Island it’s all about the eggs, which are typically served alongside fried salami, mangu, and queso frito. If this doesn’t fill you up, we’re not sure what will!

Egypt – Konafah

You’ll definitely find yourself licking your lips with this tasty delight. The origins of the konafah are mysterious, and its presence has been recorded in an Arab medieval cookbook in both Egypt and Turkey. However, we know it’s made of drizzling long rows of thin noodles, which are placed on hot plates until they become dry and rigid. Next, you mix them with butter and a bit of oil before finally filling them with cream, nuts and syrup. Sounds delicious, right?

France – Soupe ὰ L’oignon

Who doesn’t love a French onion soup? This soup is usually the first thing you’ll smell when you walk into a restaurant! Yes, the smell is that strong! However, this will be the most beautiful soup you’ll ever taste. We promise!

Greece – Gyro

Everyone who’s anybody will have had a gyro while in Greece, and if we’re honest we don’t blame you because they are delicious! No more words needed, let’s just sit and drool at this appetising picture.

Hong Kong – Baked BBQ Pork Buns

This dim sum is probably the best you’ll ever try. It’s basically a dumpling stuffed with barbecue pork that is either baked or steamed. However, the baked option is our favourite so make sure you opt for this.

Jamaica – Ackee & Saltfish

The traditional dish is Jamaica’s most popular, and it’s easy to see why. Ackee is the national fruit of Jamaica while ackee and saltfish is the national dish. So it goes without saying – this is a must-try plate in Jamaica.

Mexico – Tamales

Tamales may not be your normal Mexican dish, but it’s definitely one that you’ll thank us for. This traditional dish is made up of masa, which is starchy dough that is either boiled or steamed in a leaf wrapper. Filled with meats, cheeses, and even fruit all you need to do is discard the wrapper and you’re good to taste!

Portugal – Bacalhau

Bacalhau is the Portuguese word for dry, salted cod. Historically this was the staple meal during Lent, when meat was considered a forbidden food. Nowadays, it remains a firm favourite among the locals and can be found in many restaurants with new and exciting recipes.

Spain – Tortilla Espanola

Transform potatoes, onions, and eggs into the best omelette you’ve ever tasted! To sum it up, this is basically a Spanish omelette but it is so much tastier.
