From tripe to curries to food trucks, get ready to go on a ride of culinary delight. DR picked some of the best cities from around the world to get a taste of local flavor and culture.

Austin, Texas, USA

This city is popular for its food trucks. It doesn’t have as many food trucks as the other cities in USA, but, the ones present provide the best American food ever. Enjoy southern comfort food, like a slow smoked brisket, the weirdest fried food and pecan desserts like a pecan pie or pecan pralines. Or you can opt for their wide range of cuisines like Thai or Mexican, provided by food trucks. Austin food trucks live up to their motto: ‘Keep Austin Weird’.

To satisfy your hearty appetite, try the fried sandwiches at Hey!… You Gonna Eat Or What? – Midway Food Park

Barcelona, Spain

Besides football and sightseeing, Barcelona has an amazing local cuisine. Seafood paella, made with rice, seafood broth, mussel, lobster, shrimp and cuttlefish, is a must try. Cannelloni (pasta with stewed meat), la bomba (potato croquette), Calçots (native catalan green onions) with romesco sauce and Pa amb tomaquet (bread smeared with tomato, olive oil and garlic) are some of the local savory dishes that you must try. Barcelona is also popular for its desserts: churros, crema catalana, mato and xuixos.

DR RECOMMENDS: 

Visit Bego & Ivan, warm home-chefs who live in Carrer de Sostres, to try their catalan menu. Especially their paella.

London, England, UK

If you find yourself in London, we suggest you to check out the Sunday marts. It’ll give you a peak of the local life, culture and food. Most of these Sunday marts are really large. It’ll take you hours to cover just one. They consist of organic fruits and vegetables, local and international savory and sweet food markets, and seafood markets. For your convenience, some of the food stalls are marked as ‘halal’.
