Through my stomach is the key to my heart
If you’re anything like me, you might consider yourself a little bit of a foodie. Before social media or the internet being available to the masses, I was obsessed with cooking and travel shows. Some of my fondest memories are watching these shows with my aunt who was a foodie before the term really existed. As a kid, she was always picking me up for special trips to new spots that the rest of my family would never dare to try. I know this isn’t a common experience, but bonding over food and a new experience to the palate really helped shape my appreciation for all that goes into the preparation and sharing of food.
In one of my recent searches for an upcoming trip, I came upon this fantastic list from howlongtocook.org of beloved street foods from all around the world. My first thought was, how great it is to live in a country that has so many cultures where I can find some of these options. My second thought was that I have so many more cuisines to explore! I have tried a fair amount of these fun street foods and maybe this list will encourage you to seek out your next food adventure as it has mine.
These days you can catch me scrolling through my socials looking for the next up and coming local restaurant along with consuming any food series on streaming services. When planning a trip, outside of finding a place to rest my head, I spend the most time looking for food spots that the locals rave about. My friends and I share lists from our adventures so we have a pretty large archive at this point in our lives. So you can say my love of food runs pretty deep within my soul.
