At Food For Thought we specialise in thoughts about dining, and in addition to our Food Guides, we have a specialised section known as our Ultimate Food Guides. Here, we seek to give you a more in depth knowledge on some of the best street food from around the world. Our Ultimate Food Guides are much more comprehensive with at least 20 different items from a certain city. We also go in depth on the type of cuisine, giving a historical background of the dish, ingredients and how it came to be. These Ultimate Food Guides are made to include the following: –
1.)Description of the cuisine.
2.) Name of dish (local name, English pronunciation and English name)
3.) Photographic description of the dish.
4.) Brief description and history of the dish.
5.) Our opinion on the dish.
6.) Special needs of Halal or Vegetarian options.
7.) Location and opening hours of the stalls.
As a heads up, I would recommend you looking at the addresses which are closer together so you can do your food treasure hunt more efficiently. Hope you have fun food hunting.
