Spending 6 days last summer in Pays Bigouden with a local (and not any kind of local, but one very passionate about food and gastronomy) meant that we could spoil our taste buds with everything fresh, tasty and authentic this region has to offer. I took notes responsibly and here is Pays Bigouden’s gastronomy story.
I have to admit I worked hard before the trip to find some places to eat out in Kutaisi that would satisfying our need of local, authentic food. I asked around and I only got a couple of recommendations, enough actually for the amount of time we spent in the city.
Some recommendations of restaurants, bars, caffees, pubs in Tbilisi, all tested by us. The list is constantly updated, based on our travels.
Like every capital city that respects itself, Vilnius has a lot to offer in terms of restaurants, pubs and bars. The first step in discovering the authentic ones is to go to the Tourism Office in Vilnius and ask for the ‘Lithuanian Food and Beer in Vilnius’ Brochure which will give you a full list of places to eat out (from traditional to fine dine dinning) and to taste some of Lithuania’s best beers. You can also find it in PDF version HERE.
Belgrade is slowly becoming one of our favorite cities to visit when we’re in search of a laid back attitude and cool urban experiences. We’ve been already 3 times there and every time we go, we discover new places that convince us even more that this city has everything it needs in terms of urban lifestyle: cultural events of all kinds, cool places to go out for food, drinks and dancing, lots of outdoor places for the sunny days, interesting architecture, local and small designers stores, old industrial places reinvented into modern hangout areas and, a very big plus for this one, not that many tourists around and very decent prices for what it has to offer.
Spanish cuisine? Hats off! Cordoba is very well known for its delicious tapas and if you know the right places to eat out, then you can say you tried it all. As we had a friend who is originally from Cordoba with us, we were assured that everywhere we had something to eat was the best choice.
Besides the dynamic life and beautiful beaches, we had an other reason for our trip to Tarifa. During the last weekend of May, Ruta del Atún festival (The Way of the Tuna) is happening. From Thursday to Sunday almost all the bars and restaurant are serving tuna tapas. For every beer ordered you get also a tuna tapas, all for 3 euros.
Every region of Italy has its specific in terms of gastronomy that goes far beyond the classical pizza and pasta stuff. Puglia and Bari have a mixture of everything, plenty of vegetables (agriculture being one of the main activities here), plenty of sea food and plenty of meat.
Florence gastronomy (more general, the Tuscan gastronomy) has some main attractions (no, it’s not pizza) that we also tried while there.
We spend about 4 days in Athens but fell completely in love with this one restaurant from day 1 that we decided to go there every day of our trip.
