    The Best Portuguese Food In Lisbon You Need To Try

    Eating local cuisine is one of my favorite things about travel. I spend a lot of time trying to seek out the best versions of the most authentic food in each destination we visit. We spent two months in Lisbon this past winter, and so I had plenty of time to try lots of Portuguese food. I knew very little about Portuguese food prior to our time in Lisbon. It’s…

    A Unique Food Tour in Buenos Aires

    I’ve traditionally loved taking food tours when I travel. I think they are a great way to get a quick overview of a city’s cuisine.  However, now that we are traveling slower, I haven’t taken any food tours recently.  I’ve figured that given the extra time we have in each destination, I could discover the cuisine of each place on my own. And so, I didn’t initially schedule any sort…

Regular readers know that Mrs. TT works remotely on a US schedule, and so in Europe, that means we generally eat our weeknight dinners in while she works. My job in the evening is to feed us, and so dinnertime…

    How to Eat Tapas in Spain – Seville vs Granada

    I went to Andalucia Spain for the first time when I was 15.  I was part of a large group of around 100 teenagers, and we toured many of the great sites in southern Spain for 2 weeks. I was hardly a foodie at 15, so food was not the major focus of travel then like it is for me now.  Eating tapas in Spain is a foodie’s dream.  During…

    Seeking Out Great Korean Food in Las Vegas

    I had long avoided Korean food.  Which is odd because I love eating a variety of cuisines and discovering new food.  Especially when I travel.  In fact, I consider seeking out great food to be one of the great joys of travel.  And I love every other kind of Asian cuisine. But for me, Korean food was taboo for decades.  However, during a recent 24 hour stay in Las Vegas,…
