20 Delicious Foods From Different Countries Around The World

One of the most unique aspects of travel is the luxury to taste all those new foods around the world, broaden your culinary horizon and calibrate your taste buds. Yesterday a thought hit me when I was organizing my travel albums, and that thought manifested today into what you’re reading right now.

What I’m about to show you is not the best or worst of foods, but rather foods that I managed to capture on camera and remembered to be interesting and worth sharing. I’ll be adding some more countries and photos over the months, trying to create a nice presentation of food from around the world.

Different Foods From Different Countries Around The World

The country next to each food is where I tasted it and took the photo.

This is the first thing I ate in the Philippines: ‘Stuffed squid’. Don’t miss the Filipino balut either.



Armadillo stew - Belize

Delicious stew of two armadillos we hunted in a Belizean jungle. Cooked with pineapples and some local spices.


Notice: some of those foods are not very healthy and don’t fit the scope of my dietary guidelines. I usually allow myself a few of the local dishes when I visit a new country for the sake of curiosity, experience and good time.

There are lots of foods from around the world I probably never tried, so feel free to add them in the comments if you’d like to share your experiences. Bon appétit!

    If one day you stumble upon Bangladesh (pronounced Bung-glu-dish, for all of you weirdoes who think it’s pronounced Bang-gla-desh), you should definitely stop and try our amazing cuisine. Bangladesh has the best of food. Dinner to dessert. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried beef or chicken biryani! Our food is the best, Bangladesh is a must visit for anyone who has a good taste in food. Ha, I could make a ten page report on how good it is, but, really, I guess I should cut this short. :/ -Sammie Wilde (lol, you already see my name on the top… Well, you get to see it again!)
