Chowriffic Destinations...

Hi all,
I am a new hound but was hooked from the first moment I stumbled onto the boards. I got to thinking after the Rachel Ray/Tulsa post(you know the one!)-there was a reply asking about the role travel plays in unlocking your Chowhound potential. I know for me personally food and travel are definitely intertwined. A few of my favorite chow destinations have been Jamaica, Mexico(shout out to Eat_Nopal), Vancouver, and Barcelona. Still on the list: Singapore, Greece, and India. What about you?

      Hi Sam,
      I forgot to mention how much I enjoy reading your posts. Always very informative...
      I am planning to visit my brother and sister-in-law in Japan(Tokyo&Yokohama) next year so I will probably want to pick your brain just a bit in the coming months :)

        You might want to check the Japan board as well, it's very Tokyo centric and if you search you'll find just about everything's been discussed already. Good travels

    2. Oh, Italy. #1 is Italy.

      1. Paris, SF, Sydney, Oah'u, Mexico City, NYC, Tahiti, Vancouver, Italy and the whole state of Maine..

        1. Great post............ New Orleans is close to the top of my favs as is Paris but definately on my to-do list is asian countries: Vietnam, Japan, Thailand, China, Cambodia. Also Greece would be fantastic to go eat through.

          Seattle was a wonderful culinary adventure.

          We recently went to Paris and Italy and from an eating perspective : disappointed in Italy - Paris blew us away!!! (we had wonderful guides/hosts in Paris, on our own in Italy - could be part of the reason)

          1. Keep it simple. Hope a flight to NYC and take the number 7 subway to Queens and get off any stop. A wonderland of ethnic chow. So little time, so much chow.

              I second that! Former resident of Ridgewood....I enjoyed chowing my way though Queens

              1. re: Luvfriedokra

                I lived in Ridgewood, Glendale and Maspeth, and loved it! There was a terrific Asian supermarket in Maspeth (as of 8 years ago, lol) and I loved to browse the unfamiliar items. So, so many good places to eat in Queens!

              2. re: Passadumkeg

                Agree! I visit that area frequently.People always ask what I did on my visit. All I can really say is "we ate"!

                NYC is a truly wonderful eating area! My family member who lives in Brooklyn is planning on moving to Cal. in Jan. I hope I can squeeze in one more trip before then! (We are trying to talk her into keeping her a timeshare sort of thing with several of us chipping in...)
