Everyone loves to eat, and it is true that food makes the world go round. There are so many varieties of spices and flavors that you can never grow tired of trying things. In fact the term “Foodies” came from people who live to eat food.
Every country has its best seller, and restaurants will always be the main place to receive an amazing meal. But food trucks and street food are really becoming popular because people love to taste a small portion of something, leaving room for them to try another small something. This way they can really get a sample of the taste from the country they are visiting.
