Ah, the glory of food. One of the best feelings there are in this world is to try out new dishes when traveling.
A national dish reflects the country's culture, and trying them out is certainly at the top of a must-do list when traveling to a new place. Some countries like it spicy, some don't, and some prefer weird sauces drizzled all over their food. Nevertheless, getting to eat local food around the world is a privilege, and here we'll feature some of the most delicious national dishes around the planet:
Pho, Vietnam. Vietnam's Pho is famous around the world for its exquisite taste. This noodle soup uses rice noodles, and the broth is so hearty and hot enough to warm anyone's frigid heart. A variety of meat and vegetables is also used to complement this dish, which makes it more delicious.
Ceviche, Peru. You've probably heard about this but not sure what it's really like. Basically, it's made with fresh, raw fish cured in lime juice, chili, and other complementing spices. You might find it weird to eat raw fish, but hey, you probably adore sashimi, right? So why not try this as well?
Bulgogi, South Korea. While you're used to thick slabs of barbecued meat roasted over hot coals, in South Korea, they prefer them in thin strips of tenderloin, marinated in soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar. Also, in most Korean restaurants, it's customary to cook bulgogi by yourselves at your table. If you haven't tried this yet, you're missing out.
Currywurst, Germany. Aside from beer, the Germans are famous for their sausages, and in Berlin, the wafting smell of fried or grilled sausages is enough to make your mouth water while just walking down the street. Almost a billion currywurst sausages are eaten every year; it is made of steamed-then-fried sausages topped with curry ketchup, paprika, and a side of fries.
Adobo, Philippines. To a foreigner, the smell of adobo seems strong, and it's mostly because of the mixture of vinegar and soy sauce to make the blackish brown sauce used to marinate the pork or chicken. It's usually served on top of steaming white rice, and if you try it, chances are you'll be asking for a second serving.
