Top cities for foodies in the world
Regardless of our cultures, backgrounds, age, genders, and whatever other factors of life you can think of, we all share something in common — we love good food! After all, life is too short to fill up your belly with mediocre grub. While this is obviously a fact of life, you are probably aware that the quality of food and indeed the style of food can be vastly different depending on where you are in the world.
This post is designed to focus on some of the top cities from all over the world for their food, and we suspect that your tastebuds will be tingling by the end. We hope that you aren’t hungry, for this article will have you craving some of the best foods in the world. So, let’s get right into it.
The first city on our list is one that you might not have suspected, but Toronto, Canada, is one of the best cities for food in 2020. This just goes to show that Canada is more than a place full of friendly folks, awesome casinos, and great wild-life. Toronto has become particularly famous for its ‘farm to table’ style of restaurants, which ensures that the dishes are fresh and that the taste is always incredible. One thing is certain here, you won’t be finding many restaurants that serve up processed grub and then overcharge you for the privilege!
If you’re curious about some of the current trends in Toronto, you might be intrigued to know that restaurants are now serving up wood-fire sausages, but these aren’t your typical meats. These sausages are made with bison, wild boar, and even elk style meat, which is certainly different from other places on the planet.
If you’re looking to find one of the best restaurants in Toronto, we would recommend that you try ‘Est Restaurant’ if you get the chance.
Rome is one of the most famous cities on the planet for incredible food, and let us tell you – this city does not disappoint in the culinary department. Of course, most of the restaurants here follow that traditional style of Italian cooking, with plenty of varieties for pizza and pasta dishes. It’s not just the food that makes this city so special either, for it is one of the oldest and most historic cities that you can possibly visit. When you mix in the location with the quality of the food, Rome is a ‘must-visit’.
To name some of the more popular dishes that you can find in Rome, you should try and sink your teeth into Gelato ice cream, pasta carbonara, Cacio e Pepe (a traditional Roman dish), and of course, pizza! The beauty of Rome is that there is no shortage of top-tier restaurants at all, and quite literally, you will see an incredible restaurant on almost every corner. This is particularly true if you hang out near Rome’s famous ‘Piazzas’.
If you’re looking to try one of the very best restaurants in Rome, we would recommend the Ambrosia Rooftop Restaurant and Bar.
Finally, we are moving away from Europe now and heading out all the way East to Tokyo, Japan. This is one of the largest cities on Earth, and it is particularly famous for its selection of sushi, noodles, Asian curry, okonomiyaki (traditional sweet), and yakitori (chicken). Tokyo seems to have much more variety than many cities, but as you can see, it is an awesome place for local and traditional dishes.
Just be warned that when you go to Tokyo, you will need to get comfortable with large crowds. Tokyo literally has millions of people bobbing in and out of the city on a daily basis, but on the plus side, this makes the city particularly vibrant and lively. The size and prestige of the city has also meant that it is now a culinary hotspot, boasting the most restaurants with Michelin Stars than anywhere else in the world.
We have two restaurants to recommend too – The Tsukiji Fish Market and Ise Sueyoshi Restaurant. These restaurants are a bit pricey, but they are definitely worth it.
These three cities are amazing places, and of course, you don’t have to stick to our recommendations. There are literally hundreds of other restaurants for you to try, and we believe that you should try as many as you can whenever you visit a new place!
