There are many things in general you can try, from salads to hot dishes, from sweets to soups. But if you want something traditional, cheap and fast – it`s definitely souvlaki. The iconic dish of Greece is a fast food that you usually can find anywhere on the streets, in the bars, in small take-out shops and cafes. You will see souvlaki over the whole country. And if you are lucky enough to be invited to a house party of Greek people – ask for mousaka. It is the best when it`s homemade.

A little glossary for a newbie:

  • Greak salad – it is called just «salad» in Greece. Be aware of this when you order in restaurant.
  • Souvlaki – “Little skewers” in Greek: it`s basically little pieces of marinated pork, fried on grill.
  • Mousaka – is an eggplant- or potato-based dish. You definitely would want to give it a try.
  • Must-Drink in Greece: ouzo, tsipouro
  • Remember: you wouldn’t want to seem odd in the nightclub – so don’t order Tsipouro there. Leave it for quiet evenings in mountains. And don’t be silly, don’t order GREEK salad.

It’s hard to speak about Italian food, it’s better to enjoy it. The traditional colors of Italian cuisine – red, green and yellow always create a great mixture of flavor and taste. Usually all the dishes are based on tomato, bread and olive oil. The secret of the cuisine is not in a sophisticated preparation process, it is more in the freshness of the products.

A little glossary for a newbie:

  • Pizza – Margherita, Quattro Formaggi, Speck e Mascarpone & many more…
  • Pasta – choose Pesto (from Italian Riviera) or Cacio & pepe and Amatriciana (from Rome): these are the best options.

  • Caprese – ask for it just if the ingredients are: original mozzarella di bufala, “Cuor di Bue” tomato & Extra virgin Olive oil. With a slice of Italian fresh bread, it’s a simple and amazing dish.
  • Panna cotta – a creamy dessert made of heaven, usually served with red-berry jam.

            In different regions it can be different names,in Lviv they will say pirogi(in general they call evrething with filling-pirogi). In general if you say zrazi people will understande, them as those made from potato, but you can say meat zrazi and it will be the one that was written in the artical. So it can be left this way.

    Who told U that Ukrainian borsch is equal to ruSSian?!

    ruSSian NEVER made borsch!

    They making “shchi”!!!

    Gorilka – homemade Ukrainian vodka. Strong as hell.

    Of course, as gorilka came from “burn” not “water”!

    Zrazi – beef cutlets with different fillings.

    ZrazY! No beef at all! ZrazY its a dish made from grated POTATOS! Best served with mushrooms!

    Must-Drink in Ukraine: Gorilka, Black Tea, Cranberry juice and UZVAR – compote made from dried fuits (on X-mass): apple, pears, etc.

      Talking about borsch – it is sometimes called Russian, because in foreigners’ minds it’s usually associated with this country. And for centuries Russians really cook Borsch very often (even though it was invented in Ukraine).

    I don’t know where you took this information from, but I’m mexican and I’ve never seen chilli con carne on the menu of a restaurant in Mexico, I’ve only seen it outside the country and I guess that it is a Tex-Mex dish, which is different than Mexican food. Also, tacos are not crispy corn chips, I think you wanted to say nachos. Finally, enchiladas are nothing like lasagna, they are not made out of pasta, they are made out of tortillas, they don’t include beef or vegetables, they have chicken or cheese inside the tortillas, and they are supposed to be covered with a spicy sauce made out of chiles not tomatos.

      Dear Noel, hi!

      I am sorry that I missed your country in my list.

      But as I agreed with other pals from comments, I will have to write a new blog post very soon: “And ANOTHER best countries for food”.
      No doubts that Peru would be there!

      By the way, just for my information, could you share with me the official rating of foods that you are talking about?
      It will help me a lot to create a new article.

      Bon Appetit,

        Peru is not just “ANOTHER” best country for food. If you are on the food business you should know Peru has won 3 times as World’s Best Culinary Destination at the WTA (World Travel Awards) if you don’t know about WTA, it is like “Oscars of tourism”. It is very outrageous see this kind of list without the mention of peruvian food and it is quite perplexed see countries such United states or Australia which lack of culinary culture , in these countries maybe you could find great restaurants and chef from another countries but definitely these countries not have the best culinary culture and food

    How do you get the ingredients wrong on a Caesar salad? It’s not iceberg lettuce, it’s romaine. Romaine, parmesan, croutons, and Caesar dressing. Chicken only comes if it’s a whole meal. Maybe cherry tomatoes.

    Interesting article. However, ur way off regarding the vegetarianism and alcohol part. There r few dry states but everywhere else its legally available. The difference is the restrictions regarding its sale. For example, u won’t find it in regular grocery stores or departmental stores but u will find it designated liquor stores. Also statistically 40% of indians r vegeterian. And in must try u should also mention non veg dishes like butter chicken, hyderabadi biryani. Tandoori chicken which u attributed to Pakistan originated and widely available in India.

    Every country has a rich culinary history and can offer foreign travelers something delicious to find and eat ! If you are not too fussy or a food-snob of sorts, you should be able to get a good meal just about anywhere in the world. All countries have fresh fruits and vegetables, grilled meats, rice, starches, noodles, breads, salads, desserts, sweets and so on. Albeit in various different forms, cooked in different ways, served in different sauces and prepared with often strange and exotic condiments and spices. That is the beauty of travelling abroad and far and wide. If you are not willing to try and explore foreign foods and try experience local dishes, what is the point of travelling in the first place ?

    Pljeskavica ain’t Montenegrin cuisine, it’s purely Serbian, although Montenegro people are practically Serbs. In fact, Pljeskavica’s national dish of Serbia and, yes, you may check it out yourself.

    Also, your blog only lists countries which you may’ve visited. I know that a lot of Russians go to Montenegro each year so it’s no wonder, but not staying at Serbia and eating Serbian food is a serious loss. You should take at least 2 weeks in order to travel Serbia and stay in Vojvodina as well as Zlatibor and Leskovac.

    First of all it’s the best BBQ ever made on the planet Earth. Only Argentinian BBQ comes close to it.
    Second of all, Serbia’s cuisine is one of the richest cuisines in the world offering a huge variety for anyone who’s into gastronomy. Montenegro can’t really relive that sense made in Serbia.

    Here’s a deal, just google Serbian food or Serbian meze or Serbian breakfast or whatever comes to your mind ranging from river-fish up to the full-scale roasted pig or lamb. It’s a huge deal in Serbia.

    Next deal is – meet Serbian people and bond up to the point where you can go and visit a specific sort of a deal – SLAVA. Yes, slava’s the epitome of the Serbian gastronomical experience based on the religious views of Orthodox Christianity and is a must to visit.

    Another deal – check the youtube videos of the particular individual called Charles Cather and see what he talks about Serbian cuisine.

    Hello Anastasia!

    I am from India and I am a little disappointed in how you’ve portrayed India.

    More than half the population here is non-vegetarian. I don’t think you’ve tried a lot of dishes if you’re calling paneer butter masala the most popular dish in India. It is popular, yes, but not the most popular. You should try pani puri (also called golgappa), idlis, dosas, samosas, malai kofta, palak paneer, avial, dal makhni, paneer tikka, dhokla, and a long list of others in the vegetarian end. For your non-vegetarian side, you could try the Chicken Biryani, Mutton Biryani, and Egg Biryani, made of basmati rice and that define the city of Hyderabad in the country.

    I don’t know if you think that the food here is unclean but that is a huge, glaring misconception that is being spread about my country.

    Please do some research before resorting to unnecessary mudslinging on a beautiful, beautiful country!

    No offense meant! 🙂

It is shocking that there is absolutely no mention of Peruvian cuisine which is considered one of the best if not thee best gastronomy, if you haven’t tried it you’re really missing out. In order to understand this severity, this is like making a list of the countries with the best basketball teams and not mentioning the U.S or Spain.

There is food tourism from all over Europe forthe weekend trips to Istanbul. But it is not just Istanbul, the entire country which hosted 100s of civilisations for 1for 10,000 years. Besides the effect of Ottoman Empire which ruled huge part of the world for 600 years and the food culture is affected by these factors (hey Ottoman is not a couch or food, it is the name of an Empire).

    Hey! On Portuguese Cusine theres a few things misspelled and one other thing wrong!

    Bacalhau is not raw fish, it ‘s Cod Fish, there is multiple ways we cook it, bread crumbs on top, with potatos etc etc.

    its Pasteis de Nata and not Pateis de Natal!

    Alzeida I suppose you are talking about Alheira which is a typical sausage (as you said).

    Pollo Rosto, this one i really dont know what it is, and Pollo and Rosto are written in what I imagine to be spanish because those 2 words dont exist in the Portuguese Language!

    Hope I could be of help to you!

    You have done a valuable job, but food taste is very subjective and I believe Persian cuisine is absolutely missing or Turkish cuisine as well. Greek kitchen (Turkish kitchen is smaller size) is derived from turkish one during otteman empire based on historical facts.

    Thank you for what you have done.

I have noticed unhygiene in India but a good and clean restaurant with good food and alcohol can be found everywhere. research before you post.

    You cannot find alcohol almost anywhere in India!! lolz. I think you have not visited India real well. May be some of us are vegetarian but mostly we all eat non veg. Therefore you didn’t mention the sumptuous non veg dishes we have like lamb/chicken biriyani, chichen reshmi butter masala, murg masallam, Kerala fish curry, baked/steamed hilsa (a local fish) in mustard sauce (locally called Ilish machh vapa) and so on.
