Eating Your Way Around the World
What’s the best thing to do when eating in a new city? Ask locals for recommendations!
“Where do you eat with your friends/family?” and “What kind of food do you like?” are two questions that will ensure their tastes aren’t completely off from yours. You’re also likely to get genuine, honest answers!
Important tip: Research before traveling what is considered local cuisine and research tipping practices while you are at it. You won’t regret it.
So, the reason you came here in the first place: actual recommendations in random locations!
Garlic House – order the garlic French bread for the appetizer. It’s amazing!
La Finca de Susana – chefs are in training so the food is great AND inexpensive! This place is a bit ENE (funky posh, a little pricey)
Surprising locale? Maybe. But this is an all time favorite, easy to miss and there is only a small black sign hanging on a grey door: Muramoto (106 King Street; Asian fusion).
Barceloneta (L’Escar, 22 moll Dels Pescadors) – pricey, but the view is to die for! Try the cod Carpaccio and don’t even think about skipping dessert.
Too many great restaurants to count here, but Ping Pong is great. All Dim Sum! Order Jasmine tea for a nice surprise too.
Nau Kana – unbelievable Asian, Middle East fusion! Try their version of the Mojito – vodka & basil.
