As a food lover who is not only fussy but also has allergies to diary and eggs getting food right is important and can be quite stressful especially when there is a language barrier.
Here are some tips that you should use when in a new city looking for great food to eat.
- Ask your friends – If they have been to the destination before. When you have had a great meal when out-of-town or on holiday you tend to remember it.
2.Ask social media – Use your social networks. They have a wealth of knowledge so it’s always a great option.
3.Trip advisor – This can be great and not only are restaurants ranked they also have recent reviews which can be really helpful.
4.Ask the concierge or your airbnb host – They will have great local knowledge and can always have some great suggestions.
5.Read blog posts – Many bloggers will add in recommendations of wear to eat in their posts so do some research before your trip.
6. This next great tip is from travel blogger @world_with_ maria who suggests eating like a local. Google up the regional dishes, she always saves the “dishes to try” as it saves you time and effort in deciding what to eat once you are in that city.
Tip: I also use google translate to make sure the restaurants understand the allergies I have.
