Road Trips for Foodies

(Photo: pixabay.com)

On Instagram, the hashtag #roadtrip shows up more than 51 million times. Eating and learning about local food is a fantastic way to learn about a city or country because food is a huge part of the history of a destination. More and more people are starting to realise that there is no better way to explore a country's culinary delights than hitting the open road.

Discover the most exciting cultural debuts, food oases, and fast-evolving cities. Here is a list of top foodie road trips:

1. Phuket, Thailand

Southern Thailand is known for many things like picturesque islands and a relaxed lifestyle. The food of Phuket stems from a jumble of influences that has no counterpart elsewhere in Thailand. The abundance of fresh and delicious seafood and influence from neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia, Southern Thai cuisine is often with a strong kick.

Gaeng Tai Pla is a famous local dish that is an extremely spicy and salty curry. Khao Mok Gai is a turmeric-infused yellow rice with chicken cooked in the same pot which makes it worth going down south.

Loba is intimidating. It combines pork offal - head, heart, lungs, intestines, tongue - braised in five spice powder, with savoury deep-fried items.

2. Argentina

The words meat and Argentina are so often formed in the same sentence. The meat haven is in the capital city of Buenos Aires. Sample their local culture with a cut of ribeye steak at Cabaña Las Lilas with meat that has come fresh from the owners own ranch.

Pasión por las Brasas in Risoria is a local treasure tucked away off the beaten track that is home to the tastiest grill in the city. You will taste the most delectable Salteña de Carne empanadas you will ever have the pleasure of eating at La Casa de las Empanadas.

3. New York City

New York City is the greatest city in the world and is one of the best US destinations for foodies. You can't not eat pizza, street meat, NYC cheesecake, bagels and hot dogs at NYC. It is a city full of choices to make your palette go wild.

Kesté Pizza & Vino in Manhattan has pizza that is reminiscent to the delicious pizza pies in Italy. Kesté has been rated "#1 Pizza in New York" by New York magazine and "Best Pizza" in the state of NY by Food Network Magazine.

4. Algarve, Portugal

Algarve is full of stunning beaches and historical villages, but ask the locals what they treasure most about Portugal's southernmost province and they'll probably say it's the cuisine.  Frango da Guia is a staple Portuguese dish that originated in Algarve with their "churrascaria" (a speciality barbecue restaurant).

Conquilhas à Algarvia is a wonderful dish with fried onions, garlic and sliced Portuguese sausage cooked together in a pan with fresh clams and garnished with parsley or coriander. Doce Fino do Algarve are small marzipan treats made from almond paste shaped and sculpted in different forms.
