Part of the travel adventure for me is ALWAYS what I can eat that is particular to the area I am visiting. Eating is very much part of any country's culture. Can you help me compile a list here?
thanks , MJ. if i may just add a thing or two on your posted fish dinner photo..........
this fish is called St. Peter's Fish in Israel. I so looked forward to it when I ordered one, only to find the same "tilapia" fish which is a very ordinary fish dinner back here in the Philippines. Don't get me wrong, it is a good fish dinner. But it cost me 10x more to have it in Israel 😞
Here's a photo of the Tilapia or St. Peter's Fish, but this time cooked in coconut cream.
What can be more American than this?

More American you ask, Lili? 😉
Nice one, Stephanie. Here's one from South America!
Over 300 years under Spain.......it shouldn't surprise you if you find good paella in the Philippines!
some competition here...........
From Mexico - mainly Puebla and as Mexican cuisine (at least in the U.S) is become highly regionalized, I suppose this is classified today's venacular as mostly Pueblano. I have many thoughts as to why this might be, I won't bore you with them 😊
More from Vietnam.

I just got back from a trip to Bicol, home of the chilis and coconut cream-based cuisine. Check out my earlier blog on Bicol food. Bicol Express and Other Bicol Food Treats
I love Bicol. Its natural wonders, the people , their cuisine. But it is a long 10 hour drive from where I live. I flew the last time, but drove recently as I traveled with my family all around the region for a week.
