For a foodie, the best part about exploring a new place is to enjoy the food that is there. A lot of times the food is distinctive and will include cultural dishes that you won’t find anywhere else. This is what makes exploring so thrilling as indulging in a city’s cuisine helps you in getting to know the city a little bit better. With this in mind, here are some places that have stood out amongst the foodies of the world.
The top of our list is the city of San Francisco. It’s no surprise as this town is known for its innovation. That innovation extends even to its cuisine which boasts some Michelin-starred restaurants, a plethora of farmers markets and unique hole-in-the-wall eateries. On top of that, the place also has one of the best food markets in America, the Ferry Building Marketplace.
If you are from out east and don’t want to travel too far, the obvious choice is New York City. The city that never sleeps is not only known for that but also for their dining scene. It provides a lot and also has quite the diversity too. For the food traveler, there is no type of food they can’t find here and that says something. If that’s not enough there is an expansive list of Michelin-starred restaurants as well as James Beard Award-winning chefs.
Back to the west coast, we’re looking to Napa Valley. While California is better known for the wine country as well as stellar hotels, their cuisine is also not that bad. In Napa Valley, you can find award-winning restaurants that offer great meals paired with their excellent wines. The only thing to keep in mind is they are not cheap so be sure to bring your credit card.
Fourth on our list is Seattle. Known as the Emerald City, this city has plenty of food markets that are impressive. In those markets, many restaurants are born. What’s also nice about these food vendors is that they are independently owned and even though they are one of a kind, they are no slouch. On top of that, the climate and geography of this city allow farmers to grow an assortment of produce and protein in which chefs can experiment.
The last in our list is Savannah, GA which boasts seafood and Southern cooking. If you are into that, then this is the main reason to check out this lesser known food hot-spot. To give you a taste, the town has many delights to offer such as oyster, crab, bouillabaisse, and grouper. Paired up with a riverfront restaurant, you have a nice setting. But don’t just settle for the seafood as there are many Southern specialities in the form of a vast array of sandwiches and an absurd amount of grits variations.
