Eating the Globe: Update


The series is going well and I am discovering local restaurants I would have never known otherwise.

I have tried 27 restaurants thus far:
Africa: Ethiopia, South Africa
Asia: Afghanistan, Burma, China, India, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam
Europe: Bosnia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Sweden
North America: Mexico, USA
South America: Brazil, Chile

I estimate that I can probably find another 20 to 30 countries in the Bay Area. At some point, I will have to make the decision of going to an ethnic market and buying packaged foods from countries that don't have real life restaurants locally. And after I have exhausted that idea, I will have to make the decision of just downloading a recipe and making the exotic meal at home.

But for now, these are on my To Do list.
