Tips for travel and food
It's very difficult to find a true local restaurant, local food is often something served at home, and when locals go out they often want something exotic.
Street food is the biggest food gamble, you either get the greatest meal ever or food poisoning.
Always visit food markets and grocery stores where you travel, this is truly where the locals eat.
With that in mind, try and cook for yourself when you travel, take the ingredients you find at the markets and make something.
Looking at other people's plates is a great way to decide what to eat at a restaurant, don't be afraid to ask questions. With that in mind, make sure to help others if they ask you about what you're eating.
Don't always go for the most expensive food items on a menu, it's a trap. Onions and potatoes fried together in oil are extremely cheap and it tastes fantastic.
Don't ignore subtle differences. Kit Kat bars taste remarkably different all over the world.
Just because it's pre-packaged doesn't mean it's not worth trying.
Don't judge foods till you’ve tasted them, but it's still OK not to like it.
Don't mess with oils. Leave them alone.
Keep a food journal.
Culture and food are tied together and are guided by the environment. Look around you when you travel, you'll often find food everywhere, and look on your plate when you're eating, you'll often find clues about the environment you're in.
Art and food are the same thing.
