Top Food Destinations



Let’s face it: Everyone needs to eat. However, most of us are particularly passionate foodies, and this is truly the case when it comes to travel.



Every region in the USA has its local dish. So please peruse the following list (which is an Amuse Bouche of sorts) to help you plan your upcoming vacation.



Houston is famous for delicious plates of nachos amongst other things.

Houston, Texas

Savory in nature, Tex-Mex satisfies the palate. Everything from nachos, fajitas, tamale pie, Frito pie, and chile con carne will satiate any voracious appetite. Practically every restaurant and eatery in Houston which serves Tex-Mex has mastered the flavors and textures of this one-of-a-kind and harmonious fusion of Spanish, Mexican and Texan cuisines.

Once you have eaten Tex-Mex to your heart’s content in Houston , you may want to learn how to make Tex-Mex for yourself. Fortunately, Houston has cooking schools that focus on the preparation of Tex-Mex just for enthusiasts like you!

    Chicken-fried eggs benedict tastes as amazing as it looks.

    Dallas, Texas

    Houston’s neighbor to the north, Dallas, is a meat lover and comfort food paradise! Breakfasts are bountiful, and there are numerous all-day breakfast eateries that serve very creative dishes such as pancake pot pie, chicken fried benedict, pancake battered and deep-fried sausage links, and more. Of course, what’s Dallas without its famous steakhouses and rib joints? These places abound and portion sizes are quite generous. However, if you are someone who enjoys lighter fare, there are several vegan and fermented-focused restaurants which are sure to delight.

        Jambalaya is a delicious Creole creation of meat and vegetables mixed with rice.

        New Orleans, Louisiana

        Louisiana Creole and Cajun cuisine reigns supreme in New Orleans. While these two different types of cuisine may appear to be the same, there’s one specific difference between them. Cajun cuisine is tomato-free, while Creole cuisine includes tomatoes (diced and/or sauced). Always extremely flavorful (and often very spicy), New Orleans restaurants specializing in Louisiana Creole and Cajun cuisines won’t disappoint. Whether you choose jambalaya, seafood gumbo, po'boy sandwiches, bread pudding, or beignets, you won’t depart disappointed. (Try them all!)

          You can bite into a juicy hamburger anywhere but L.A. is the go-to destination for an amazing burger.

          Los Angeles, California

          “City of Angels” and “Entertainment Capital of the World.” These are names which are synonymous with California’s largest city, Los Angeles. However, one additional name needs to be added to that list: “Burger Town.” From long-established local eateries with secret menus to restaurants serving up avant-garde offerings, L.A. is the go-to destination for an amazing hamburger. So much in fact that popular burger-specific restaurants based in other cities have established locations in L.A. to capture some of the attention (and financial rewards) of the city’s loyal burger fans.

          Another culinary arena in which Los Angeles excels is in Thai cuisine. Even ex-pat Thais in Los Angeles vouch for the authentic flavors. All throughout L.A., you’ll find a wide variety of Thai eateries that specialize in the various regional cuisines of Thailand, including Khao Soi (from the North), Massaman Curry (from the South), and Larb (from the Northeast).

              Delicious Chicago-style deep-dish pizza can be found just about anywhere in the city.

              Chicago, Illinois

              If you enjoy deep-dish pizza, Chicago is certainly the place to visit. Throughout the third-largest city in the U.S. (by population), you will find a bevy of wonderful pizzerias specializing in masterfully crafted deep dish pizzas (which are designed to silence any hunger pain). While most of these pizzas tend to be loaded with mounds of meats and cheeses, vegans aren’t overlooked in this regard as most Chicago pizzerias are mindful of the vegan dietary requirements.

                It's a known fact that lobster rolls taste better near the ocean.

                Boston, Massachusetts

                Some of the best seafood in the U.S. come from the waters of New England, and Boston excels in the culinary arts in this regard. New England clam chowder, the lobster roll, and broiled oysters are some of the good eats which Boston is famous for. Throughout this city, you will find that seafood cuisine is something that Bostonians take very seriously, and this doesn’t mean that you need to break your savings account to have a great seafood meal here. There are many popular local restaurants that serve up fresh and delicious seafood at a very reasonable price.
