EAT YOUR WAY AROUND THE WORLD

One of the things I look forward to the most about traveling is eating.  I especially love eating my way around Asia – Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia and Korea.  There are times I need to schedule what I am going to eat for each meal so that I get to try everything on my list.  And sometimes I eat even when I am not hungry.

I love char siu (bbq pork) and soy sauce chicken in Hong Kong.  Just about any place tastes better than the ones in New York.

Snails at one of the stalls in Marrakech Jamaa el Fna Night Market.  It is one of those dishes you must try at this world famous night market.  My friend and I had two of them and it was more than enough.  We invited a Japanese traveler over to help us finish it.
