Foodie things to try after traveling from Dubai
1. Potato Wedges with Sour Cream & Sweet Chili Sauce (Australia)
This dish is pretty self-explanatory – it consists of potato wedges with sour cream and sweet chili sauce. You dip seasoned potato wedges in a mix of sweet chili sauce and sour cream. Odd but yummy!
2. Kobe Beef (Japan)
If you’re into Japanese delicacies, you must try this mouthwatering dish if you ever go to Japan. Each piece of meat labeled ‘’Kobe beef” must meet certain standards. For example, it must be from the Tajima breed of cattle which is raised and processed in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Legend has it that these cattle are fed beer and massaged with sake.
3. Lassi (India)
Lassi is the perfect drink for a hot summer day. It is a delicious yogurt made with spices, often sweetened with fruit like mango or strawberry.
4. Panang Curry with Chicken (Thailand)
This coconut cream-based curry with a peanut flavor is definitely one of the most amazing foodie things to try after traveling from Dubai to Thailand. Instead of chicken, you can get beef, vegetables or tofu. They normally serve it with jasmine rice. Red peppers are added for spice and the heat varies.
5. Meze (Turkey)
Meze actually represents a selection of smaller dishes served before the main dish. The Turks combine fresh cheeses, pureed dips, cured meats, pickled vegetables, grilled seafood, etc. All in all – you’ll have a lot on your plate, quite literally. Order a plate and give your travel pictures a new lease of energy before you attack it. Once you finish this delicious meal, you will need the services of Dubai Personal Trainers to get your body in shape again. But, it is worth all the trouble.
6. Escargot (France)
Paris is not only one of the great destinations for solo travel but also one of the world’s top foodie destinations. Dare to try something bizarre? Travelling is all about adventure and trying new extraordinary things. Escargots are snails. They are rich in iron, protein and vitamin E, and taste surprisingly good. In France, they are served in their shells. They are a little rubbery, but if you like calamari, you’ll like escargot, too. What makes them extra tasty is the garlic-herb butter they are drenched in.
7. Tortilla de Patatas (Spain)
This typical Spanish dish is basically an egg omelet with potatoes and onions fried in vegetable oil, although there are many regional variations. For example, Spanish chorizo or tuna can be included.
8. Cheese Fondue (Switzerland)
This unique mix of carefully chosen cheeses is served in almost every restaurant in the country. Besides, it is not that hard to make, so you can even do it yourself.
9. Poutine (Canada)
If you think French fries cannot get any better, you are wrong. French fries and cheese curds topped with brown gravy – so simple but so delicious!
10. Recreate a foreign dish
If you like to cook, recreate some of the dishes you tried during your travels with the ingredients you can find at home. It will be fun!
