No matter where you go in the world, you will always find different and unique flavours! Even just passing across the border from one country to the next, not more than a few miles apart you will find foods that are completely different to those you had on the other side. In this article we are going to look at a few specific dishes that have very unique tastes from various countries. Let’s get started!
El Pobre Nigiri
This dish is actually a combination of Peruvian and Japanese dishes. It is comprised of Wagyu steak with a quail egg on tops sitting above a bed of rice. It may only be a small dish, even just bite sized; but it will still give an explosion of flavour in your mouth! If you want to try this dish, then head on over to Peru!
Cacio e Pepe Pasta
Cacio e Pepe pasta is a very simple dish, originating in Italy. It has only three ingredients; pasta, olive oil, and Pecorino cheese. Normally, you would also sprinkle some ground black pepper on top as well. Even though it is so simple, the resulting flavours are absolutely amazing! So get yourself a ticket to Italy and give this authentic Italian dish a try!
Pan Con Tomate
From the country of Spain, the Pan Con Tomate is essential for almost any Spanish meal. The base is comprised of a lightly toasted baguette rubbed with garlic and a sprinkling of olive oil. The topping is mostly grated tomato with some sea salt mixed into it. This dish is known as a Catalan tapa and is one of the most famous foods from Spain. If you ever find yourself in Spain or an area comprised mostly of Spanish people, you may want to keep an eye out for these tapas!
Now, I know what you’re thinking; oysters are pretty common, right? That may be so, but have you ever tried oysters from the Northwest Pacific region? Places like Seattle, USA, have the most amazing oysters. Taken fresh from the ocean, these oysters are just bursting with flavour! The oysters are cooked by local restaurants shortly after being removed from the ocean; these restaurants cook them to absolute perfection. You won’t find a better oyster in the rest of the world!
In many ways, this Japanese dish is similar to traditional ramen. Tsukemen Ramen is served in two separate bowls. One of the bowls contains dry chewy udon noodles; while the other bowl contains a deliciously flavoured broth with dried fish inside. The idea is to take some noodles with your chopsticks and dip them into the broth, grabbing some fish as you do so. The combination of these two bowls is refreshing and appetizing!
