Costa Rica

When I thought of Costa Rica, delicious food wasn’t the first highlight that came to my mind. I was expecting wildlife, cloud forests and waterfalls, but I never thought about Costa Rican dishes. Maybe because their cuisine isn’t well-known worldwide, or perhaps because I was too excited about the chance of seeing sloths.

But it turns out that food in Costa Rica is quite tasty. We tried a variety of dishes while travelling through the country, served at food stalls, in small cafes or excellent restaurants. And we are not the only ones who enjoyed eating out in Costa Rica. Below, you can find eight foods you should try, recommended by fellow travel bloggers.…

Europe

Bern is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve had the pleasure to visit. I still remember being amazed at the landscape while peeking from the window of my train. The city itself is also gorgeous, with beautiful buildings, cobbled streets and lovely gardens.

In retrospect, I have no idea why it took me so long to visit Bern. I had been thinking about coming here for many years but it was never feasible. The closest airport was too far away, I didn’t have time or I just decided to go elsewhere. But from Frankfurt, my new home, it was so easy to get to Bern by bus that there was no reason to go anymore.

I absolutely loved Bern! If you haven’t been, I highly recommend that you go.…

Nepal

Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal, is a chaotic city with constant traffic. Cars, bikes, scooters, buses, tuk-tuks, people… and definitely not enough sidewalks. It doesn’t matter where you are. There’s always someone honking or rushing near you.

However, this vibrant city is also full of markets, restaurants, trekking shops, handicraft shops, beautiful alleys and squares. It’s a great place to get lost and enjoy the city. Once you embrace the chaos and just go with the flow, you might end up loving the unique character of Kathmandu.…

Lithuania

What do you know about Lithuanian cuisine? Not much? Then you’re just like us. Before coming to Lithuania, all we knew was that people there ate a lot of potatoes. I also assumed they’d eat fish in the coastal areas, but that was it.

During our time in Lithuania, we got to discover lots of amazing dishes. Yes, people here like to eat potatoes. They also eat meat, soups, herring and produce amazing cheese and honey. Oh, and the desserts. Did you know about the delicious Lithuanian desserts?

If you’re travelling to this Baltic country, don’t miss out on any of those amazing dishes.…

Colombia

When I reached Cartagena after almost half a year of travelling through South America, I was tired of meat, rice and french fries. It didn’t matter where we went on this continent, it seemed as if half of the restaurants would only let you choose which kind of meat you wanted to have with your dry rice and your soggy french fries. And it didn’t matter which one we went for, the meat seemed to taste the same everywhere.

I am not saying that we didn’t have amazing food along the way. I remember that Patagonian lamb, for example. Or the delicious sopa de mani in Bolivia, a soup rich in flavours and spices. But there had also been parts where we hadn’t been able to afford anything other than the cheapest and most tasteless dishes, particularly in expensive regions like Patagonia or Galapagos.…

Ecuador

Ecuador is not known for its amazing food.

When I thought of Ecuador, I thought of the Galapagos Islands, of giant turtles, sea lions and white sand beaches. And of volcanoes and beaches, and the second-highest capital in the world. I certainly did not think of its cuisine.

But after spending a few weeks travelling around the country, I have gotten to know the most typical Ecuadorian dishes and found a few that I really liked. To help you discover the country’s unknown cuisine, I have put together this guide for you. Read up on the most delicious food and enjoy your stay here!…

Peru

By now, most people will have heard of the amazing Peruvian food. Restaurants all over the world serve dishes like ceviche and lomo saltado. But what about Peruvian desserts?

Until travelling to Peru, I had no idea such a thing even existed. But after spending a month and a half in the country, I got to appreciate many of the sweet dishes they sell at streetfood carts and in restaurants.

If you don’t know about Peruvian desserts, don’t worry. I have put together this overview so you know what to seek out next time you travel to Peru.…

Peru

It is no longer a secret that Peru is a foodie destination. Over the past years, the country’s cuisine has gotten more and more international attention. So when I travelled to Peru, I was excited to try ceviche and… well, ceviche. It was the only Peruvian dish I knew of.

After a month and a half of travelling through the country, I now know that there is far more to Peru than ceviche. I tried lomo saltado, rocotto relleno and chicha morada. I joined a food festival in Lima and ate dishes unique to the Amazon region.

Here are my favourite pieces of Peruvian cuisine.…

Peru

If you want to go to the Amazon in Peru (and you totally should), chances are high that you’ll pass through Iquitos. Iquitos is the biggest city in the world that cannot be reached by car. You can go by boat down the Amazon, but most travellers arrive here by plane.

While many jungle lodges can arrange to pick you up at the airport, you might find yourself spending a day or two in Iquitos. Either because your flight arrives too late or leaves too early or because you still need to arrange a jungle tour (which most hostels can help you with). Whatever the reason that leaves you staying in Iquitos itself, there are a couple of things to do here.…

Peru

One of the things I love about travelling is eating foreign food. And there is nothing more fascinating than the amount of fruit and vegetables that exist in the world and that I have never heard of.

Peru is no exception when it comes to exotic fruits. On markets, I found huge piles of produce that I couldn’t name and that I didn’t even know how to eat. Peruvian fruit is as diverse as the country itself. If you are wondering about which fruit to eat and how to prepare it, don’t worry. I have put together this guide so you can identify the 15 most common fruits and know what to do with them.…
