I try this famous raw fish dish in its modern culinary birthplace.
I have a local meal at a Vietnamese herb farm
My first experience eating pho in Vietnam.
Anyone who knows my eating habits (so… my mom) can tell you that I am not a huge sandwich fan.
That being said, I always have to try the local cuisine.
In addition to my curiosity, all of my travel companions were raving about the bahn mi sandwiches that they ordered at simple stalls throughout the city.
We had gotten into the habbit of having four meals a day, which was necessary since we were awake for so long and burning so many calories by walking through the city.
I believe I ordered a pork bahn mi, and it was delicious. Nothing I would tell my grandkids about, but delicious nonetheless. There’s something about the way that French and East-Asian influences connect that makes Vietnamese cuisine absolutely immaculate.
I drink the infamous snake-soaked beverage of Southeast Asia
On my first free day in Bangkok, I stumbled across a cart vendor pouring batter on to a griddle.
I try the infamous King of Fruits
I visit a Michllen starred restaurant and try Dim Sum for the first time.
The story of the best meal I had while in France
We visit the restaurant that presented Queen Margherita with the first–ever modern day pizza, and try the unmodified recipe.
