My favorite part of travelling is tasting my way through a new city. For me, food is a window into culture. With each bite of Spanish tortilla I begin to better appreciate the long, storied history of Spanish family meals, cultivated locally, cooked from memory and always shared. Sinking my teeth into a fresh baguette while walking the winding streets of Paris helped me further understand the importance the French place on fresh, flavorful food prepared by experts and sold fresh daily.
When I visit a new city, the one recommendation I’m always searching for but which is always the hardest to find is a good restaurant recommendation. After much trial and error, here are the foodie gems I’ve found along my travels. Each post has an array of recommendations for where to eat when traveling to Madrid or Paris (with many more to come!). Hope they can bring you the same tastebud-dancing joy!
