With less than a week left until I leave for my family vacation to Europe, I have been put in charge of planning our itineraries and looking up all the information for where we want to go.
Essentially, I have been assigned to be our free-of-charge tour guide.
While I plan out where we go and how we get there, I have been thinking of food. Some people gave me great suggestions on Facebook for what I should be seeking out when I’m abroad, including but not limited to:
- Döner kebab in Berlin (apparently, Turkish food is really popular as street food in Germany and most of Europe)
- Ratatouille in Paris (hoping the French chefs’ versions blow the American ones I’ve had out of the water)
- Gelato or gelato crepes from Amorino in Paris
- Mogador (passionfruit) macaron from Pierre Herme in Paris
- Ice cream (but not sorbet!) from Berthillion in Paris
- Bangers & mash and fish & chips in London
- Snails & frogs legs in Paris (psh, I’ve already had the Chinese versions of these)\
- Beef bourguignone in Paris
- Brændende kærlighed in Copenhagen
- Kroppkaka in Stockholm
- Blini in St. Petersburg
What else should I be absolutely SURE to eat?
What can I pass on? What should I avoid?
To give you some insight on my food preferences, I don’t really like dairy and I do not eat cheese. I have kind of a wimpy palate, so nothing terribly spicy or SUPERDUPERBOLD in flavor would be preferable.
