The people of Amsterdam love their smoked meats and pickled fish. There are numerous herring stals around the city. The locals can’t get enough. They tilt their heads back, hold the herring by the tail and drop it in their mouth. It’s reminiscent of feeding a seal at sea world. The smell of pickled herring […]

Behind Hong Kong, I think Buenos Aires was my second favorite big city that we have visited. In large part, this is thanks to the amazing food, nice people, and general metropalitan feel of this place. Buenos Aires is known for its beef and the best place to get a good steak is at one […]

I am happy that last night, despite us being zombies from traveling, we decided to go out to eat. It was one of the best meals we have had on the entire trip. Peruvian food is awesome. We started with ceviche. Fresh, simple, delicious. Love the sauce options ranging from mild to spicy: I got […]

Everything we had was fantasitc. Apparently the original is so popular they have four different locations and apparently they all […]

No need to worry everyone, Japan has donor kebab. Anyone who has traveled with me before knows this is a value add.

We have seen a ton of people eating these Octopus Balls around Japan. I’m sure they have a proper Japanese name, but I don’t know it, and wouldnt know how to write it anyway. Regardless, given their popularity we figured we should try them. Bad idea. I should have known they were bad news when […]
