At Food For Thought we pride ourselves on our food and travel discoveries, and know that it can be difficult to find the right thing to do at the right time. Food and travel go hand in hand, and its important to know where to go and what to eat, but even more important to know where not to go and what not to eat. This is why we have created our compendiums we call our Ultimate Guides. As a caveat, all the information here is to our best knowledge and are accurate at time of writing. Also do leave in the comments if you have a different experience and would like to highlight that to our readers. It’s really a pay it forward thing, help us help you.
“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.”
– James Michener
We pride ourselves on our Ultimate Food Guides, which normally takes us extensive research on the history of the dish, how its cooked, ingredients, rarity of ingredients, cultural significance and uniqueness. We painstakingly try out as many versions of the same dish to give you the best overall experience. We use local names and pronunciation to help our readers in time of need, so if you’re ever in a pickle, just take this guide out and point. The locals would know what you mean straight away. Also not to worry as English names and descriptions are used in all our food guides.
We know how difficult it is to travel a city within a few days, and that is why our Ultimate Travel Guides are made. We don’t bother to push the touristy attractions because you will easily find that out on your own. What we seek to do is to incorporate useful phrases, lesser known sights, food the locals eat and places the locals go. We also like to play on the spectrum, giving you what is affordable if you’re on a budget, and something a little more luxurious, if that’s what you’re after. We also specialise in reviewing boutique hotels as we feel they deliver a more personal and unique experience.
