  • This is a repeat of my post from the memorable vacation discussion but I'm adding a photo.

    My favorite food memories from my travels are:

    • Kilauea, Kauai, HI - town Christmas celebration - had standard Christmas food but it was fun celebrating with the whole town.
    • Mexico City, Mexico - Chapulines with lime and hot sauce - chapulines are grasshoppers
    • Mexico City, Mexico - Chilaquile Torta sandwiches from a street vendor - The lines for this vendor vary from 30-90 minutes for the 4 hours they are open. Worth the wait!
    • Kowloon, Hong Kong - Cheung Fun rolls - rice noodle sheets rolled up with either shrimp, beef, pork, or fried bread stick.
    • Paris, France - Squid Ink pasta

    The squid ink pasta was rich and had a briny flavor with a light amount of saltiness.

  • It seems like an interesting taste. To try
  • I recommend that you try it out.

  • For sure I will.

    Also, I will have something special next week that I will share with you n a picture 

  • I will try to see if I can find these concoctions online. I will either have the cook mix them up or have them shipped to me. If they are great, I would like to know! 

  • I have driven down I-80 through Wyoming a few different times and in both directions you will see billboards  for miles beforehand advertising a convenience store called "Little America" and their $.50 ice cream cones. I have stopped there and gotten gas, but not an ice cream, but I have always remembered those signs advertising their ice cream.  The store is in the middle of nowhere.

  • Here are the traditional cakes of my native country.
    I don't have my own photo, because I only take them for the holidays.
    almonds, walnuts, honey, ... A pure delight.
  • meat pies in New Zealand! I should have expected it with the British background but I was surprised at how there were tiny bakeries simply everywhere with them.

  • Thank you for starting this   Can't wait to see what everyone shares - especially the photos! 

    I will take a look through my photos and see what I find to correspond to the following foods! 

    • Sesame seed alfredo pasta on my recent trip to Banff, Canada
    • Nutella crepe wandering streets in St. Malo, France
    • Meat pie, classic Sunday roast and much other food in England
    • 5 course, homemade German Christmas Eve dinner with a German family


  • Those look delicious. Where is your native country?
