Wherever we travel, we try to have some of the traditional and typical dishes of the region / city we’re in. Sometimes this turns into something completely different like when we were in Bangkok, where we visited an Indian restaurant, that has been named No 1 restaurant in Asia in 2018. No 5th in the world.
Debeli has always been fascinated with Thai cuisine, ever since he started to work professionally. At the beginning of his cooking career he was working with a Thai chef who infected him with soy sauce. Like literally, because Debeli ended in the ER after his body couldn’t digest high levels of MSG or monosodium glutamate (a flavor enhancer with an umami taste), so he dehydrated and had to be fed with a tube).
Eating in Rome was so decadent, that the old Romans would be ashamed. This whole trip was purely about the food. About finding the best and the traditional dishes. On our list there was cacio e pepe, suppli, trippa alla romana and so much more.
A typical Norwegian thing is brunost or brown cheese!
Dining offer in the capital of the Republic of Ireland is somewhat wider than Belfast, but just because Dublin is a bigger and more economically developed city. On the other hand, a bigger and wider offer doesn’t always mean it’s better, but it’s definitely worth a visit.
Northern Irish cuisine is quite similar to the British or to that of the Republic of Ireland. In the past, the basic diet of average Northern Ireland man was bread and potatoes. The limited choice of foods and non-existing influence of international cuisine resulted with a poor and uncreative culinary offer.
We visited Munich this summer on our way to Zagreb. A friend of Debeli lives there for a couple of years now so we decided to kill two birds with one stone: visit her and a capital of Bavaria as well. I had a bunch of stuff planned to visit, but we did only two of that. Nevertheless, I’m satisfied. We really liked having our friends as guides, so we enjoyed their company and suggestions.
Traditional Estonian cuisine is based exclusively on meat, potatoes and some fish but neighboring states had a great influence in preparation and use of traditional Estonian ingredients so it’s not uncommon for the Estonians to eat dried or salted fish or fried sausages.
Breakfast (frokost) is the most important meal of the day so here are a couple of things that you can find on a Norwegian dining table.
Everybody knows that Italians are big gourmets and food lovers, but only when it comes to their own, Italian, cuisine. Pizzas, pasta, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil, garlic and various aromatic herbs (basil, rosemary, oregano) are just some of the few ingredients out of what you can prepare simple and fast meal.
