Favourite tips you picked up while travelling ? [Moved from Home Cooking]

I’m curious to know what little food tactics you-all have picked up while traveling. I don't mean the kind of thing you’d learn in a cooking class or by asking a chef – just little things that other cultures do, that you saw and adopted yourself.
Here’s some to get you started:
In Oaxaca, I learned to put a little chili pepper and lime on fresh fruit. Sharpens up the flavour and undercuts the sweetness.
In Florence, I learned to squeeze some lemon onto steak (just before eating it). I never would’ve guessed that’d be so good.
In London, I learned to love bacon jam and mayonnaise sandwiches. Okay, that one probably doesn’t count – it was one quirky friend, I can’t blame all of London. But you get the gist ;-)
