There is a new theme every week, and Instagram decided this week’s theme was going to be food! While I travel, I get to eat a lot of different things, try many different flavours. But, I do always forget to take a nice picture before starting out (perhaps because most times I’m really hungry from all the walking). Often, I take a rushed photo with my phone just to show family and close friends, and immediately attack.
Chicken & Lemon Tagine from | This dish takes the name of the pot where it’s cooked, a conical shaped cover sits on the base while it cooks. It is seasoned with spices, garlic, onions and lemon, served with giant olives. You will surely be eating a lot of Tagines while exploring the country. Morocco
Chicken & Veg Kibinai from the city of – these are traditional pastries typically filled with some sort of mea, onion and cabbage. These are mostly associated with the Karaite ethnic minority in Lithuania, mostly residing in the small town of Trakai. Trakai, Lithuania
Pesto Pasta from – You can’t go to Italy without indulging in carbs. Personally, not a big fan of pasta, but I remember this one being amazing, and the best dinner I could have had after a day of exploring the old streets of Rome. Italy
Papanasi, from | This was just wow, and I don’t think I was able to eat all of it. It is a traditional Romanian dessert, consisting on doughnut, made with cottage cheese and topped with jam and sour cream. It’s an delight, but quite filling, something I would not eat more than once a year! Romania
Traditional Potato Pancakes, served with mushroom cream, from – potatoes in the form of pancakes is the best idea ever. I’ve seen other variations from other countries. It is always a good idea. Lithuania
Lithuanian Saltibarsciai (Cold Beet Root Soup) – This was something I hadn’t tried before. It is goof, but after a few spoons, I felt the flavour was too overwhelming. Thankfully, it was served with potatoes to dip on it, which made a bit better.
Hungarian Fried Lángos from | Oh man, the best food is street food. This is deep fried flatbread, covered with sour cream, cheese and mushrooms, but the toppings are completely up to you. I’m not going to lie, this is not the healthiest thing, and the smell of fried food was almost unbearable. But it is yummy. Hungary
The Chimney Cake (apparently with different names depending on the country), from | Oh this is another good one. I had the chance to have in Hungary and Romania as well. It is cooked by putting layers and layers of dough on a cylindrical spit. It is then covered in sugar and baked on an open fire. The outside is typically covered in crushed nuts and/or cinnamon, but all kinds of combinations and toppings can go with it. Prague, Czech Republic
Fish & Chips, from somewhere in the – I have had a lot of fish & chips and most types I don’t like it, because the fish is often flavourless and the chips soggy. This one was actually pretty good, it’s shame I don’t remember where I had it. UK
Vanilla ice cream & something else on cone, – it was a warm day, and this tasted like heaven. And I did feel in heaven that day, exploring the brilliant city of Florence. Florence, Italy
A suspicious cupcake & fries, – yep, this pretty much represents a typical experience of Amsterdam. To this day, I swear those were the best fries I had in my life. Amsterdam
Swedish Cinnamon Bun, from – the coffee break is called Fika. A cinnamon bun with coffee is all you need to get you restored from all the walking through the beautiful streets of the city. Stockholm
