Discover Secrets to Eating Out Around the World
If you’ve never had the pleasure of trying Venezuelan cuisine, then you are surely missing out. One of the great things about being in cities or in close proximity to cities is the wealth and abundance of food options you have at your fingertips. I like to go to Atlanta each summer to visit close friends of mine, and when I go, we usually stay at their home in a smaller town called Woodstock, which sits about an hour outside of the city of Atlanta itself. I like to think of the smaller communities surrounding cities as the great hubs of choice and cultural variance when it comes to restaurants and food stands and trucks. And Woodstock is no exception to this. One of the best places I’ve had food in the city of Atlanta is actually outside of the city in Woodstock, a small town built by planned communities and neighborhoods with a railroad running through the center of the town square. The real gem for food, though, is actually just a small little food shop set adjacent to a gas station. It’s playfully called Cylantros, and they serve fresh and authentic Venezuelan specialty food at an affordable price. And with […]

Haus Hiltl in Zurich, SwitzerlandDo you enjoy quality vegetarian food, excellent service, and a multicultural selection? Then this restaurant is for you. Me getting lunch at Hiltl on a sunny November day. SOURCE: Tamara Marie Johnson If you’re ever in Zurich, Switzerland, you should definitely check out Haus Hiltl near the main train station. Founded in 1898, Haus Hiltl is the oldest vegetarian restaurant in the world – and to this day it is jam-packed full of people. Always. If you don’t want to eat dinner at 11pm, you should definitely reserve a table, at least a week in advance. Haus Hiltl does have a menu but it is best known for its extensive buffet: over 100 homemade, vegetarian and vegan dishes from around the world await you here. There are hot and cold main courses, sides and salads, cakes, puddings, and ice cream. How it works You pay by weight until you reach around 50 dollars.

That might not sound like much but Swiss tap water tastes amazing – and most restaurants charge you for it. There is a fancy, sit-down […]
One of the culinary trends in Germany is the renaissance of regional cuisine. Young chefs are reinterpreting good traditional fare, for regional ingredients and dishes are in demand. A few classics: Kale and sausage People like to associate the Germans with sauerkraut. In Northern Germany, however, another sort of cabbage is extremely popular: kale. The harvest begins in winter, when the first frost has covered the bushy plants. Around Bremen, Hanover and Oldenburg traditional kale eating tours are organized. The classic recipe is kale with groats sausage, a smoked sausage. For this home-style cooking, kale is cooked with groats, lard, onions and the sausages for up to 90 minutes. This form of preparation is looked upon as exotic even in other regions of Germany. But there have long been other recipes that cook the kale more gently, for it is unbeatably rich in vitamins. Broad beans and pork fat In the west of Germany there is also a dish that combines an extremely nutrient-rich, healthy vegetable and calorie-rich meat. Here “broad beans and pork fat” is a classic. The board beans are in season from June to August, because they taste good only when young. In the traditional variant, they […]
