Experience of trying exotic food & different cuisines of the world

exotic food of the world

When talking about tasting food and different cuisines, I’ll always be seen as the first person in the queue. Having been able to live and travel around the different countries in the world, I’ve been lucky enough to try lots of cuisines that originate from the various countries worldwide. Some of you might be aware that I’ve lived in the UAE, more specifically in Dubai for a few years and for me it was like a food heaven. Restaurants with food from all over the world have opened their doors not just for the residents but for tourists too, and since all the food served there is Halal, there have never (mostly) been any boundary for us to set when dining out. 

Exotic food I’ve tried...

I’ve been to the top restaurants in Dubai run by Michelin chefs and have tried some exotic foods such as a variety of sea food including lobster and crabs at a known Japanese restaurant in Atlantis and luckily, the restaurant is in London too. Exotic fruits such as passion fruit and loquats are also something that I've enjoyed eating. Commonly found in California, loquat is an orange coloured pear shaped fruit that tastes like a peach and mango. Native to South America, passion fruit is a golf ball sized fruit that has a hard skin and juicy seeds that can be scooped out with a spoon to eat. I’ve tried them at some fine dining restaurants in London and Kent. They’re not just served with desserts but in drinks too.

Favourite food destination... 

For me, UAE definitely gets the highest numbers for the country that has the best food and these aren’t just based on the taste but also keeping in mind the variety too. Dubai has got endless options from cheap eats to fine dining options so it’s a perfect destination for every budget. The restaurants there serve almost all the cuisines in the world, so one doesn’t need to visit Canada to try their most popular coffee place or to visit America for their famous burger joints. I’m also a fan of the Middle Eastern cuisine and Mandi, hummus, grilled halloumi, umm ali, shawarma and shish tawook are a few favourites, to name a few. If you would like to plan a trip to Dubai, then visit the website for more details.

Cuisine I'd like to try... 

There are a few cuisines that I’d still like to try and the Greek cuisine tops the list. I’ve had a look at the traditional Greek food, and it has a lot of similarity with the Turkish cuisine. In Greek cuisine I’d like to try Moussaka, a dish that has different variations but this layered Greek dish is served with sautéed aubergine, minced meat, spices, garlic, onion and tomato puree are topped with cheese and béchamel sauce. Also trying out fresh grilled fish from the Mediterranean, served at a seaside taverna with a ladholemono (a lemon and oil dressing) is definitely something I’d like to try on a pleasant evening in Greece.
