Let’s face it.
Travelling abroad is never really complete without food – not just food that will boost your energy like how power outlets in Panama do for the country, but also food that signifies a country’s rich history, as well as food that represents a country’s vibrant culture. This includes gourmet dishes that can usually be eaten in luxurious hotels, scrumptious delicacies that can usually be eaten in fancy restaurants, appetizing meals that can usually be eaten in local diners, and of course, street foods that can usually be eaten in public areas.
That being said, remember these when eating in another country:
- Book at least one week in advance. This especially goes for those who are planning to dine in luxurious hotels and fancy restaurants. This is because slots get filled up quickly, no matter what season the place is currently in. This is also for you to enjoy your meal to its fullest, as well as other perks that might come along with it, without worrying about things like not being able to have dinner in that special place you’ve been eyeing for months.
- Go where the locals usually hang out. This especially goes for those who are planning to dine in local diners. You’ll never know. That old shack locals are going to back and forth is really a famous Italian pasta house that goes way back into the 19th century. You’ll also never know. That holed wall locals are raving about day and night is really a famed Japanese sushi bar that goes way back into your birth year.
- Just look around and see for yourself. This especially goes for those who are planning to dine in public areas. On your left side might be an ice cream stand that’s well-known all over the country for its triple-flavored ice cream. On your right side might be an acai bowl stand that’s well-known all over the world for its four-topped acai bowl. The list is endless and the good news? You only need to look around.
