Food is one of the unifying pleasures of life, stimulating our senses and sensibilities. Regardless of origin or custom, you have a tradition of gathering around the fire to share food and tell stories of the day’s adventures and misfortunes. Sustenance becomes not only about the food we eat but also the bonds that come out of a shared feast.
After looking at freshness and style of culinary practices, plus ingredient diversity and a search for a charismatic, innovative food culture, here are ten of the very best food destinations in the world right now:
20 million people can’t be wrong ! Bombay - the capital of the province of Maharashtra (which means “huge nation”) is truly the land of plenty. And no one goes hungry. Bombay food will excite your palate and fill your belly on any budget. A crossroads since ancient times, Bombay combines custom and cuisine from the four corners of the Earth. But it’s the incomparable Chaat (street snacks) that will make your head spin with flavor pleasure. Pani Puri, bite sized croquettes filled with potato or chick peas and tamarind, is the little star of the big Bombay food show. Another treasure is Juhu Beach for bhel puri. For the real Bombay comfort food, try the pav bhaji (“bread stew”) or treat yourself to the Kanda Pohe, a breakfast mashup that is the morning go-to in Maharashtra.
