Discover Your Next Culinary Journey
Most of the time, when you dine at a particular restaurant, you go for “the usual dish.” It seems like the safest route possible since you have already tried that meal – and you have confirmed it is good.
However, a good traveller will know that they should never be afraid of the new or unknown. Actually, that “new” and “unknown” is what drives you to travel. You travel to see places that you have never seen before, to experience the sights of far away countries and ancient cultures.
The problem, however, is that you don’t always have the money to travel the world the way you want. To compensate for that, you try to do it through food.
Seeing Different Cultures through Food
When you try the local food from another culture, you are basically stepping out of your comfort zone – and joining theirs. This culinary journey will allow you to feel what it’s like to be part of a certain country or culture – without actually leaving your own.
For example, let’s say you want immerse yourself in Japanese culture for an evening. This can be easily achieved by going to The Rising Sun Workshop, or Zushi in Barangaroo. Similarly, let’s say that you want to experience the Romanian culture; “sarmale” with “mamaliga” is the best way to do so.
When you go on a culinary journey, you should look to pick a country and choose their national dish.
