One of the biggest perks of traveling is getting to try new foods. Something that all of us traveling abroad must remember is that in order to experience some amazing dishes, we must keep an open mind. The following dishes are rather unusual, but simply delicious.
Pie Floater In Australia
While this dish may look unappealing, it’s actually known as a great cure for a hangover. This thick pea soup contains a meat pie as well as vinegar and tomato sauce. While some visitors turn their nose up at this green soup, they really don’t know what they are missing out on.
Poutine In Canada
As word spreads about how good this dish is, it is gaining popularity. Poutine basically consists of French fries served with cheese curds and gravy on top. This dish is packed with flavor and calories!
Khachapuri In Georgia
This is the perfect dish to eat for breakfast. This chewy bread is filled with cheese and sometimes a few eggs. It’s so good in fact that you may just find yourself coming back for seconds.
Escargot In France
Many people might think that trying escargot, which is simply snails, would be slimy and gross, but it’s a totally different experience in France. The snails are served in their shell, which somehow preserves the flavor. They are often made with a garlic herb butter and the end result is a dish that just might surprise you.
Dim Sum In Hong Kong
The dish, Dim Sum, varies greatly on where you eat it at. In Hong Kong it can consist of anything from spare ribs to shrimp dumplings. The key is for it to be in bite size pieces that you don’t need a knife to cut.
