The food scene in my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky is constantly changing and evolving. We spent a few weeks exploring Louisville and discovering everything from the best brunch in Louisville to the best Louisville restaurants for lunch or dinner, where to get dessert in Louisville, and even the best coffee in Louisville. Yep, that’s right: we have you covered on all 5 major meals: brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert, and coffee.
From tripe soup to fermented agave sap to ant larvae (gross, wtf?) here’s 10 obscure Mexico foods that you’ve probably never heard of! Are you an expert in authentic Mexican food or are you more the Tex-Mex type?
The Ultra Chocolate Tour of San Francisco was so not what we expected. We never could have guessed that gin & chocolate pair so well together. And then there were the chocolate covered crickets….
When people think of the Bay Area’s amazing food scene, they typically think of San Francisco. In our extremely biased opinions (as Oakland residents for 4 years) the food in Oakland is hella underrated: chicken & waffles, shrimp & grits, spongy Ethiopian injera bread, sizzling Korean bulgogi, bubbling mac & cheese… these are Oakland’s flavors. If you haven’t explored Oakland as a foodie (I see you, people who only come to Oakland for Warrior’s games), here’s a complete list of our favorite restaurants in Oakland to get you started on your next trip to the Bay Area!
Barcelona, Spain is home to many wonderful, amazing things. Balmy beaches. Catalan food. Fantastical buildings created by the famous architect, Gaudi. Spanish wine. Ancient, winding, narrow streets. Tapas. Towering Gothic churches. Catalan food, tapas, …. and Spanish wine. Ok, maybe we were a tiny bit biased. But we were mostly looking forward to the food and wine in Barcelona. Can you blame us?
It’s no secret that we love a good food tour when exploring a new place. Food tours are the best way to explore a city on foot while learning about its culture and history, in between stuffing yourself with as much excellent local food as you can stand. So we couldn’t leave Brussels without doing a Belgian food tour that focused on our two favorite Belgian icons: beer and chocolate (sorry, Jean Claude Van Damme). Luckily, The Brussels Journey created a tour that combines the best of 2 worlds: the Brussels Beer and Chocolate Tour! Get you a tour that can do both.
Winter in Copenhagen, Denmark is a Christmas dream: hearty stews, warm spiced wine, crackling roasts, and festive Christmas Markets cover the city. Danish food is at its best during Jul (Danish Christmas). From sweet pickled herring to apple pancake puffs, the holiday food in Copenagen is unique and absolutely delicious.
On our first day in Mendoza, while tasting 21 wines, paired with 9 carefully matched courses of food, and touring 4 gorgeous wineries, we may have accidentally fallen (or drunkenly tripped) head over heels for wine! But surprisingly, it wasn’t the copious wine or the amazing food that made this tour one-of-a-kind. It was a sort of quirky, twisted historical edge that we’ve never encountered before in a wine tour.
Lima, Peru is the top foodie destination in the world , and it’s fortunately located in a continent – and a country – known for growing high quality coffee. Our list of the best third wave coffee shops in Lima, Peru is a labor of love (and many very jittery afternoons).
Ceviche and Pisco Sours: we have Peru to thank for these two iconic South American creations. So during our visit to Lima, we were thrilled to discover Lima Gourmet’s classic Ceviche and Pisco Sour cooking class. In one short hour, we went from boring average Americans to masters of Peruvian cooking! Lima Gourmet’s class is fun, easy, and affordable: we think it’s an absolute must-do when visiting Lima.
I love coffee. Having lived in the Bay Area for the past seven years (minus the past year of backpacking), I can safely say I’m a coffee snob. I’m not so bad as to swirl a mug and say something like “There’s notes of pencil shavings in the nose,” but I can definitely taste things […]
