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;
Teeny tasty Tapas in Spain;
Slow cooked Svíčková in Prague;
Simply stunning sushi in Japan;
An American Waffle with eggs, sunny side up in New York;
Hot dogs on Coney Island beach, and hot deli pastrami on a Rubens Sandwich in New York;
Proper northern Fish & Chips in Grimsby, fresh from the ocean;
Fluffy biscuits and erm, plain grits in Florida;
Garlicy, buttery and slippery; Snails in Paris
Don’t forget high afternoon tea in beautiful London settings;
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?
