Will travel for food #travelthursdays

All this talk of travel plans and delicious food got me thinking. What are the meals we have had that are worth travelling for? What dishes have we been unable to say no to & willingly go through airport security lines in order to sample?

Patisserie with panache, Eclairs in Paris;
Parisian Eclairs - Travel
 
Teeny tasty Tapas in Spain;

Plenty of pinchos

Slow cooked Svíčková in Prague;

Hot dogs on Coney Island beach, and hot deli pastrami on a Rubens Sandwich in New York;

 
 
 
Fluffy biscuits and erm, plain grits in Florida;
 
 
 



 
 
 Garlicy, buttery and slippery; Snails in Paris

And last but not least, my Dad's Bacon and Egg pie, a Kiwi staple.


This year I want to try frites in Bruges, a proper Morroccan tagine, brownies in Amsterdam, Melton Mowbray Pork Pies in Melton Mowbray, Belgian chocolate, yorkshire puddings in York and a Ham Sandwich in Sandwich, near Ham.
 
There are SO many goodies to try, and a lot of walking to make up for those goodies.
 
Do you have that 'must try' feeling when you travel?

  6. It's fun to try local foods!! You made me longing for Prague with the Svíčková. A Czech friend made it in my kitchen (we lived in Prague for 9 years). It was good. I also love Czech goulash with knedlicky (dumplings). Yum!
    The bacon and egg pie looks amazing!!

    1. I really fell in love with Svíčková - there used to be a pub in North London that made it, but I'm not sure if it does any more - I need to get my investigation cap on!
      It's the best.

  8. And the winner for most delicious-looking goes to.....your dad's bacon and egg pie!!!! Seriously, how can I get one of those? ;o)

    The problem is plain grits don't appeal to anybody. You gotta soup 'em up a bit - maybe add some butter and sugar, or try grits and ham pieces. YUM!

    Brownies in Amsterdam. Looking forward to hearing that story...

    1. How to get a bacon and egg pie? You gotta have kiwi friends in the right places, that's all I'm saying.
      I'd love to do you a swap! A US vs. NZ type brunch!

      Stay tuned...
