How many of these 16 food and drink experiences have you ticked off on your travels?

Last updated Apr 12, 2024

Think about some of the best meals you've ever had. We'd wager many of them were enjoyed on your travels.

Don't take this as a slight on Scottish food and drink. We're lucky to have a top notch pantry that is enjoyed and used by some of the best chefs working in the best restaurants in the business.

But travel is all about trying things and leaning into new experiences. It's often from that the best, most surprising, discoveries are made. You might be trying something new in a Spanish tapas bar, embracing the local favourites at a bustling food market, or putting that scrolling to good use and trying those Insta recommendations for yourself.

What we want to know is how many of these food experiences have you ticked off (and which is next on the list).

16 food experiences to tick off the, erm, bake-it list?

🌭 You could do a lot wurst... Been to Berlin and tried the Currywurst.

🍝 Ordered Tagliatelle al Ragu alla Bolognese in Bologna. The top choice in a food-mad city.

🔝 Picked up some Pastéis de Nata in Lisbon. The best custard tarts you'll taste.

🥪 Pastrami on Rye from New York City. Bonus points if it was from the world famous Katz Delicatessen.

😋 Tried pintxos, small plates showing off the best of the Basque Country in San Sebastian.

🙌 It's all about Goulash in Hungary. Budapest is the place to try this sublime stew.

🍲 Sampled paella in the city the dish was born - Valencia.

☘️ Enjoyed a pint of the 'black stuff' at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin.

🥟 Dumplings done right. Whether steamed, boiled or fried, Beijing is the place to try them.

🍕 Tucked in to a slice or five in a Neapolitan pizza joint. Naples is where it all started for the humble pizza (so don't ask for pineapple).

🍫 Zurich is choc full of chocolate factories and boutiques. Sampled the best of them?

👌 Enjoyed a feast at the food markets of Marrakesh and tried everything from sweet Moroccan pastries to tagines packed with tender meats.

🍽️ Filled your plate at a traditional Stockholm smorgasbord.

🧇 Belgian waffles from a Brussels street vendor. Checked it off your bake-it list?

🍻 Said cheers to Oktoberfest in Munich and tried the best Bavarian beers.

✅ Ordered more than was reasonable at a Barcelona tapas bar.

If that was enough to whet the appetite why not plan your own adventure, based on your favourite food of course?
