Most travellers want to experience the authentic culture of the places they visit -- especially the foods and drinks that the natives eat. Fresh out of beta, Eat Your World aims to be a global guide to local grub.
The site currently offers native or traditional food recommendations for several destinations around the world, most of them in North America, but a few in Europe and elsewhere. Clicking on Colombia on the interactive map, for example, you'll learn about almojabana, pan de bono and pan de yuca -- Colombia's savoury baked breads and where to buy them. Visit the Czech Republic virtually to read about koleno or roast pork knee and which trams to take to Klášterní šenk to order it.
Travel-food writer Laura Siciliano-Rosen and photographer Scott Rosen run the site, but Eat Your World also takes user-submitted photos, stories and tips, which makes it a great, budding site for travellers to help other travellers find authentic eats.
