Traveling the world gives you plenty of opportunities to experience exotic cuisines with the added flair of authenticity you simply can't get at home. As a lifestyle concierge, a favorite past-time while traveling is eating, so here we provide you with a few destinations where the food alone is reason enough to make a visit.
During your stay in Thailand, you'll notice the amazing complexity within the often light dishes. Tom Yum Gung is a Thai soup that's filled with shrimp, tomatoes, mushrooms, and many other delicious ingredients. This is a classic dish, which you might enjoy alongside a serving of Panang Gai, mild curried chicken. While you're there, don't miss trying the signature Thai sweet tea, Cha Yen.
Brazilian food is rich and comforting. To get the full experience of Brazilian cuisine you'll have to take a tour of the nation, as the fare varies broadly from region to region. You'll sample delicious dishes such as Camarao na Moranga, or shrimp in pumpkin, which is a traditional seafood stew that's served inside a hollow pumpkin. If you're looking for a classic dish, try Bolinhos de Bacalhau (fried salt cod cakes). Also, don't forget to try the traditional Brazilian condiment, Farofa, which is often served alongside roasted meat dishes.
There's really nothing quite like exquisite Turkish cuisine. Whether you're enjoying the comfort of a BBQ Yogurt Marinated Chicken dish, or you enjoy a vegetarian dish such as Spinach with Bulgur, you'll get your fill no matter which luxurious restaurant you visit. Be sure to finish your meal with something delectable, like Limonlu Kareler, sweet lemon bars.
If you've always wanted to visit Italy for some real Italian food, look no further than Rome. You'll find that many of the restaurants in Rome stick closely to tradition. Many of them serve Gnocchi on Thursdays and Salt Cod every Friday. Rome is known for its seafood, and any of the finest restaurants will feature a number of elegant seafood dishes on their menus. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, there's absolutely nothing like homemade Gelati, which is available at many Roman restaurants, and be sure you try the Sfogliatelle, pastry leaves with ricotta cheese.
