Taste of Travel - Around The World in Three Courses

For me, food memories linger the longest from our travels so I was super-excited to receive the challenge to come up with a #tasteoftravel 3-course menu from Bunks and Beaches.  This challenge was sparked by a competition put on by Celebrity Cruises.  My menu may seem a bit disjointed but I wanted to give you a sample of some amazing foods across three continents rather than worrying about whether the foods go together into a cohesive meal.  Ok...time to get your stomachs rumbling.

Starter - Pozole and a Margarita in San Francisco

I could eat Mexican food three meals a day when I visit California.  It should ideally be washed down with a margarita on the rocks with salt (well, maybe not for breakfast...).  This pozole (a pork and corn based soup) and margarita with a hint of orange served in a pint sized glass from the Little Chihuahua in San Francisco is one of my fondest food memories of all time.

Main - Okonomiyaki in Osaka, Japan


We had the chance to visit Japan for the first time in 2014 and the food totally exceeded our expectations.  Forget sushi for a moment.  I present to you for your main...Okonomiyaki!  This dish contains a little bit of everything and the best part is getting it at a restaurant that cooks it table-side so you can watch the magic happen.

Okonomiyaki is kind of like an omelette, kind of like a pancake and can be filled with all manner of noodles, vegetables, and/or meat.  It's then smothered in mayonnaise and a savory BBQ sauce and topped with bonito fish flakes (tastier than it sounds).  We tried Okonomiyaki at Okonomi Yukari not far from the main train station in Osaka.

Dessert - Flourless Chocolate Cake in Dublin, Ireland

Chocolate Fondant

For dessert, we'll fly from Japan to my home base in Dublin, Ireland.  I'm a chocolate girl so I'm going with a classic to round out the meal...warm flourless chocolate fondant with a viscous liquid center.  This specimen from Blackboard Bistro is one of my favorites.  They don't always have it on the menu but whenever they do, we're there!

I hope you've enjoyed this round the world dining experience!  I plan to invite some of my favorite bloggers (Our Tasty Travels, Wanderlust Marriage, and Travel Sandwich) to participate.  Can't wait to see what they come up with.

Sharing is caring...
