Anthony Bourdain on Finding Great Food Traveling: Get Genuine Advice
You probably know to ask locals for food recommendations when you travel, but you want to make sure you ask the right locals.
Chef, author, and TV personality Anthony Bourdain knows a thing or two about finding good food when traveling abroad. For the best food experience, he suggests you go the extra mile to make sure you get advice from the right people:
“That concierge is sending you to a place they know tourists will like. Don’t eat like a tourist. That’s not the type of knowledge you want.”
Tap your network to see if you know someone who lives there, or happen to know someone who knows someone else who lives or has lived there. Ask around before you leave and you might end up with a list of fantastic places to try that tourists will never find. If you can’t find anyone in your network to help you out, Bourdain suggests posting a fake, positive food review on a travel site.
“Then, wait for all the angry food nerds to tell you how wrong you are and about all the other places you should go instead.”
You’ll get a great list in the blink of an eye. Of course, you could also just ask people on those sites for help, but that’s not nearly as fun. If you want to eat like a local, be sure to get your homework done first.
