But, finding the perfect place can often be quite a challenge, especially when visiting a city or a country for the first time.


So, instead of wasting hours scrolling through sites that only list the best-ranked, and overhyped restaurants, we offer an expert overview of some of the best places around the world.

Instead, what our readers need and can expect from our guide is: 

  • An honest review of the place and the food quality.
  • Detailed information on the taste and the ingredients used in the meal.
  • A story and a deep dive into the history of the place you’re visiting
  • More recommendations.

Adorned with powdery, sun-drenched beaches, one of the world’s most beautiful harbors, and multi-hued bluish crystalline waters, St. Thomas is one of three of the U.S. Virgin Islands located in the Caribbean Sea.

Mexico Foodie Guide

Your boarding pass to the very best of Mexico. From beach lovers to people who enjoy history and fun activities – every type of visitor can find an itinerary to suit them.

I’ve covered nearly all of Mexico. I have visited the best sites and some of the best must-try restaurants and places that I heartily recommend you try during your stay in the city.

There are so many mesmerizing places around the world, but somehow, my heart lies within Mexico, and I’m about to show you why.

The country is filled with sensational beaches, tropical islands, tourist destinations, and surprising culture. I have gone through a lot of efforts (food) to stitch together the very best of Mexico into this foodie guide, and frankly, It was not an easy thing to do.

15 Best Restaurants in Tulum, Mexico

Authentic tacos, Mayan ruins, postcard beaches, parties and sun. Describing Tulum BRIEFLY is not doing anyone any good but it’s the easiest way to show what you’re missing if you don’t visit this magnificent place.

13 Must-Try Restaurants in Cancun

It’s easy to write with a belly full of tacos! I promise you one thing though, even if you’re not a writer, but a foodie, you will blossom when you try the amazing dishes that Cancun has to offer!

Everything from street food to fine dining in one place? Yes! Guadalajara is just a mind-blowing soup of different restaurants, each bringing a twist of Mexico to its table!

EUROPE FOODIE GUIDE

Europe is magnificent in its diversity of countries and cultures, each having something unique to offer. This foodie guide dedicated to Europe covers nearly all of the Old Continent. I have visited the best of the best sites and dined in the most amazing restaurants around.

There are plenty of travel articles on Europe, but none of them cover the whole continent. My goal is to show you that there is so much more to Europe than just the usual tourist destinations and typical dishes. 

Europe is huge, and with so much history, you could always be discovering something new. That makes it challenging to cover all the European countries.

Italy…where to start? Pasta is my favorite dish in the world and when I had a chance to visit Trento, I did without hesitation. One of the best decisions of my life (my diet would disagree!).

Pico Island Azores Best Foodie Guide

Pico Azores reminds me of Mexico but with a completely different twist on the food menu. Seafood, local food and some whale watching. Worth it!

Food isn’t the only thing you should try while visiting these amazing places. That’s why I’ve made a specific list of things to do for most of the locations and I’m going to break it all down for you, along with my personal favorites, so that you can check the best and still have time to enjoy more food!
