Top Food Destinations – Part 2

Published: 02/05/2016

If reading the title of this post made your mouth start watering, it is pretty safe to say that you are a foodie. You are the kind of person who travels primarily for the purposes of trying new foods that you have never had before. Good for you! Trying new foods is a great way to be introduced to new cultures and new ways of thinking.

This post is the second in a series of two detailing the world's top food destinations. We have already talked about destinations in Asia, Europe, and North and South America, but we have only scratched the surface. There are so many great food destinations that it would be impossible to mention them all. Here are a few more to put on your list:

Tokyo, Japan

Japan enjoys the unique distinction of having the most Michelin five-star restaurants in the world. Tokyo is the place where the largest number of them are located. That says something. On your visit to Tokyo, you will certainly want to try their world-famous sushi. But don't stop there. The food scene in Tokyo is a food lover's paradise for everything from custom designed tofu dishes to excellent Japanese beer. You will never be able to sample everything Tokyo has to offer in one visit.

London, England

Yes, we know you are likely to live here in the UK. But have you ever really checked out the London food scene? We consider it truly exceptional. London does high-class dining like no other city in the world, but the city is also famous for its pop-ups. At any given time, you can find cuisine catering to any domestic or international preference. From traditional English fare to modern haute cuisine, you'll find it all in London. After dinner, you can settle into a great pub or bar to finish off the evening.

New York, USA

As long as we are going big, we cannot leave New York off the list. One of the things that make the Big Apple famous for food is its street fare. Vendors of all kinds offer everything from traditional American hot dogs to fresh seafood and vegetarian delights. However, the most interesting thing about New York dining is trying to keep up with how fast the local scene changes. If it is new and trendy, it's in New York. If it is passé, sophisticated New York diners probably left it a long time ago.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Dining in Copenhagen is more about the experience than the food. Progressive restaurants are laid out in a way that encourages socialisation among guests, both local and from abroad. Copenhagen also gives great importance to coffees and wines. It is a great place to visit if you are interested in learning about interesting new pairings you might not have thought of before.


Food destinations make for great holidays if you love to eat. We hope our two-part series has given you enough ideas to plan your next few holidays. Bon appétit!
