The Traveling Omnivore’s 20


So much to eat…

Serious Eats’ Adam Kuban came across this list called The Omnivore’s 100—a quirky run-down of foods that every omnivore should try at least once—everything from bagels and lox to whole bugs and Hostess fruit pies. Very Good Taste, the UK-based blog that came up with the idea, asks that other bloggers copy the list, bolding the items you’ve eaten and crossing out the items you wouldn’t consider eating. Fun stuff.

Lists beget more lists, so I thought I’d put together a Traveling Omnivore’s 20: A run-down of my 20 top, must-have, location-specific eats. I’ve bolded the ones I’ve tried.
