Reading other blogs it seems that there are a lot of foodies out there traveling, the focus of their traveling is to have food experiences. I liked learning about about the Food Tours that Rowan at Circle of the Year took in Seville, Spain and Berlin, Germany. If we hadn't had the dinner cruise in Budapest we would have done a food tour there. Do hope to do one next year in Berlin or Prague. Mac and April are threatening to do one in Cambodia, you know I'm not doing that one.
But for the most part we're not that much into searching out fine meals when we travel, just looking for decent food at a decent price.
In London we opted for breakfast at our hotel, for a fee you got an all you can eat English breakfast every day.
Running around the city we noticed that every place seemed to be offering up hamburgers of one sort or another. So for lunch one day we had one at the Lord Nelson Pub across the street from our hotel. Holy, moly that puppy was 10 oz. of meat. If we'd had any idea how big it was going to be we'd have ordered one and shared it. Neither of us could finish one.
For lunch another day we found a Spanish restaurant--Andalucia (Mac's father was from Andalusia) near Trafalgar Square. Hard to find Spanish restaurants at home, people seem to think that Mexican food is Spanish food, well it's not.
They were offering a 3-course meal at a decent price so we ordered. Mac had Judias Verdes, Lamb and Flan--an egg custard. I had a Tortilla, Roast Chicken and Ice Cream. Except for the jackhammers in the street outside it was a great meal, I got to practice my Spanish and did it well.
Surprisingly some of the best meals we had were on our flights. Either airline food had improved or the stewardess running up to keep you wine glass full has helped.
