Food From Around The World

Having recently come home from a trip to Italy (and eating way too much pizza and ice cream), I was thinking about all the different foods I have tried on various other holidays. So far, I have now been 18 Amazing Places (+ Italy) and experienced a range of different menus from all around the world. Today, I thought I would share with you some of my foodie highlights from a few different places I’ve visited, simply because food and travel are two of my most favourite things. So if you are feeling keen to plan your next holiday and sample some of the local dishes, check out destination2.co.uk for tons of holiday inspiration.

Greece

I absolutely love everything about Greece, especially their food. One of my favourite dishes is the gyros (literally meaning “turn”) which is meat wrapped in a pita with tomato, onion, tzatziki sauce often served with fries. It’s pretty much the Greek version of a kebab. If I am feeling slightly healthier, the Greek Salad is always a delicious option with feta, olives, tomato, peppers, onions, lettuce and olive oil normally served with pita and tzatziki sauce. Oh yeah, and you can’t mention Greek food without including Greek Tapas. This is a selection of little nibbles served on a platter and comes with all sorts such as hummus, stuffed vine leaves, falafel, pita, spinach pie, meatballs… okay, this is making me super hungry. What is your favourite dish to eat in Greece?

Mexico

The other day, I went to Chiquito for my birthday which reminded me how tasty Mexican really food is. I went for the classic fajitas but it was a tough choice between that and the burritos and the enchiladas. When I went on holiday to Mexico a few years ago, it seemed the dish of chicken and rice was a firm favorite. That and tacos! There is so much choice out there, whether you are a fan of spicy food or something a little plainer, Mexican dishes are so delicious and healthy too. You also don’t need to look very far to find fresh exotic fruit either, there is everything from the familiar mango and kiwi to more the more obscure things like mamey and tuna fruit. Do you like Mexican dishes, which one is your favourite?

Thailand

Thailand for me, was my most adventurous foodie holiday. There was no sign of a burger and chips out there. If you like Thai food, then you will love Thailand as it’s even tastier and even cheaper than at home. I still stand by my word that I ate the best ever Pad Thai whilst in Asia (this still hasn’t been beaten yet). Food in Thailand is absolutely everywhere and you can grab something quick and tasty whilst on the move. Popular dishes such as Guay Teow (noodle soup), Poh Pia Tod (spring rolls) and Kai Jeow (omelette and rice) can be found at roadside vendors, in the markets or in restaurants and it’s all so so cheap. A portion of noodles is around 40 baht (90p), how crazy! One of my favourite discoveries was the Banana Roti, a sweet pancake treat which can be ordered with added chocolate. Yum! What is your favourite Thai food?

Italy

A travel food blog post is not complete without mentioning Italy. This is my most recent adventure and I certainly had my fair share of pizza, spaghetti, brushetta. It’s not all pizza and pasta though, fish and seafood is a firm favourite on the Italian menu too. If you are a fan of fish, you will not be disappointed as you can get everything from salmon, anchovies, scallops, sea bream, sea bass, tuna and much more! Finally, of course when in Italy you need to sample a tub or five of their famous galeto. There are so many different delicious flavours to pick from – I tried Fragola (strawberry), Cioccolato (chocolate), Malaga (rum and raisin) and something that looked like cookies and cream. Amazing!

I hope you enjoyed my holiday foodie highlights. Writing this post has made me so hungry! Which country has the best food, in your opinion? What food would you like to try? I’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations.

    This post has definitely made me feel very hungry! You’ve visited so many lovely places Bexa and I also love trying different foods when I visit new countries. The pizza I had in Rome once was absolutely amazing! We tend to go on cruises so get to try so many different cuisines and types of food which is super lucky. Thanks for this yummy post Bexa xx

    Ooooh, I love Greek food (especially falafels and feta cheese with oregano and olive oil) and I adore proper Italian pizza and ice cream. I haven’t tried any Mexican food (apart from fajitas) or Thai food (apart from green chicken curry) so it looks as if my culinary education needs a little padding out, haha! Lovely post, Bexa, I’m super hungry now! x

    I also love everything about Greece, including food! They have so many family-owned restaurants with homemade delicatessen – my favorite travel destination ever! We even go out to a Greek restaurant here in Valencia quite often! Although I also love Asian food so much, including Thai, and who could say not to pizza….

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I’m not particularly well travelled but I have been to Greece and sampled gyros which was delicious however I was really ill the following day whilst travelling home which was a nightmare- unsure if it was related to the gyros or not but it did taint my memory somewhat! I have also been to Italy and the pizza is to die for yummy!
    I really love this post such a great way to look back on holidays and being a good fan it gets a great big two thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻

    Mmm, I love Asian food, especially Thai food! I can just imagine how amazing it would be to eat Thai food in the motherland and I think most Asian countries really offer that experience where food is readily available for people on the go!

    I completely love Thai food! I’m hoping to go to Thailand next year when I go traveling, so I’m super excited to try out all their yummy food, especially since I’m a big fan of their Pad Thais. Also, Italian food is delicious! I’ve never been to Italy and have been telling my boyfriend that we should make that our next destination because of how beautiful the country is itself, but also because of the glorious food and delicious ice creams!! Thank you for recommending your favourite dishes! I’ll defo give them a go next time I pop into a restaurant. xx
