Most travelers will agree eating is one of the best ways to experience a culture and this can’t be achieved at a touristy restaurant. However, finding a local restaurant can be difficult but that’s where Eat Your World steps in and shows you where to eat. It is a global guide to local food.
Simply click on their map under Destinations and click on the destination you would like to know more about. Red pins are user contributions and The “plus” pins are straight from the experts at EYW. Both provide excellent recommendations and they encourage you to share your local spot as well by getting involved.
EYW is run by Laura Siciliano-Rosen and Scott Rosen, a travel-food writer and photographer. They encourage you join the project by sharing food memories and uploading content such as photos and writing reviews.
I love trying to eat where the locals do and this site is perfect for finding better food and meeting interesting people wherever your travels take you. I can’t wait to watch this site grow and the best way to make that happen is to share!
And one of my favorite non-eating parts of the site is the, “How to Burn it Off.” Here you can find local hiking, biking, and various other activities to help you burn off that meal. Working out while traveling can be a challenge so this little section can make that a little easier.
How you can participate: We invite all users to get involved in two ways:
- By uploading photos of distinct regional foods and drinks around the world. We aim to create a truly global database, and we need your help to do so!
- By writing stories about food memories to share online. We want to learn all about the world’s culinary traditions, and know that stories about food often convey the most sense of place.
(Participation is free; in order to do either, you just have to sign up.)
