"If you can only eat one country's food for the rest of your life, Mexico is a smart choice," CNN praised when talking about this country's cuisine.
In dishes like enchiladas (grilled cheese tortillas), tacos (wheat flour crust, deep-fried corn with a variety of fillings), helados (ice cream) and quesadillas (tortillas filled with cheese or meat, beans, vegetables), you will find delicious taste of Greek salad, the taste of Indian curry, the spicy taste of Thai food, etc.
It also serves as a distribution hub for nutritional superfoods. Avocado, tomato, lime, and garlic, along with beans, cocoa, and chilies, are high in antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients. However, it does not taste nutritious. In your mouth, it tastes like a festival.

With influences from China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar and a royal culinary tradition, Thai cuisine is the best of many worlds. The dishes are made up of a variety of herbs and spices. Thai cuisine is distinguished by its sour, spicy, salty, and sweet characteristics. When visiting the country of golden pagodas, try pad Thai, Som tam (green papaya salad), or the famed Thai hot pot. The best part about eating Thai food in Thailand though is the hospitality. Sun, beach, service with a smile and a plastic bag full of som tam -- that's the good life.

Traveling and dining are two things that travelers appreciate when coming to Greece. One of the things you must try is olives - a gift from the gods. Olive oil is sprinkled on food, drizzled on bread, giving it a distinctive, seductive taste that no other oil can match.
Greece is widely known around the world for its Mediterranean food, which is the world's most popular healthy eating model. Plants such as vegetables, fresh fruits, entire grains, beans, nuts, seeds, and extra virgin olive oil are commonly consumed. They don't use refined sugar or flour very often. Red meat and other fats, such as butter, are also less popular. Instead, meals usually consist of eggs, milk, chicken, and fewer portions than in the United States. Herbs are also grown on the island, and they are used in a variety of recipes.

India comes to mind when someone cites a meal that utilizes so many spices that meat and veggies look like leftovers. There are no restrictions on the usage of spices here. It doesn't matter how much you put in as long as it adds flavor to an excellent dish. When you visit India, make sure to try the Dal (boiled lentils), dosa (pancakes with various spices - photo), masala chai (tea with milk and herbs).

Japan is the birthplace of masters of sushi, ramen and a variety of beautifully presented dishes. Head to the land of the rising sun for a sumptuous multi-course kaiseki (pictured) meal, each beautifully presented as a poem. Otherwise, you can grab a seat at the sushi conveyor belt, enjoy a bachelorette party, or try any of the items in the convenience store. The only thing you'll notice will be: the Japanese food is exquisite. "It's impossible to eat badly in Japan," CNN wrote.
Let's eat and drink first, then sleep for two hours, then eat and drink again. Viva Espana, the hedonistic gastronomic culture that we all secretly wish was ours. The unending porron challenges, the bar hopping and tapas eating, the minimal working, the 9 p.m. dinners — this is a culture built on, around, and sometimes even inside food.
Spaniards gourmandize in the same way that they flamenco dance with uncontrolled zeal. They eat snacks throughout the day, with large meals in between. From the fruits of the Mediterranean Sea to the riches of the Pyrenees, from the Moorish saffron and cumin notes to Ferran Adria's mad molecular experiments, Spanish cuisine is both timeless and forward-thinking.

According to CNN, Paris is not only a beautiful city but also offers a wide variety of delectable delicacies, ranging from baguettes, croissants, and macarons to foie gras and grilled lamb chops. Wine tasting while traveling throughout the country is an experience that should be had.

People who ask each other, "Have you eaten yet?" are undoubtedly the world's most food-obsessed. Throughout China's turbulent history, food has served as a form of escapism.
"The Chinese don't just cook and sell anything, they make it taste great. This is a place where we can be shocked by the dishes dozens of times a day," CNN wrote. Some famous dishes are Peking duck, Sichuan spicy hot pot, sweet and sour pork, Dong Po braised meat, Xiao long bao, etc.
It's hard to realize China's different cuisines are all from the same country. It's not easy to summarize the food culture, except to suggest that you'll always want seconds.
