Be a share millionaire! Tell the world!

Yes, it‚Äôs a debate that will forever exist amongst travellers ‚Äď What Is The Best Food And Drink In The World By Country?

Well, that’s a pretty subjective question. We all have varied tastes in food, and some of us are pretty adventurous when it comes to international cuisine (including myself) and then there are some where the sight of something a little different from home (and your comfort fast food chain) will send them straight to pounding the toilet.

So you could ask that question of anyone and they would always come back with something different.

But I‚Äôm going to have a different take on this ‚Äď the Best Food And Drink In The World By Country ‚Äď The Weird Version!

    Yeah, the menus in China are basically useless. The names of items rarely have any correlation to what is in the dish.

    The silkworms are gross in every country. Big ones small ones, they all taste like crap.

    If you have spent any time in Vietnam, you have probably eaten dog. EVEN if you didn’t know it.

    I have never had egg tea, but I drink an egg coffee in Hoi An, Vietnam almost every day.

    The coffee we keep in our house is called weasel coffee. The coffee bean was eaten and crapped back out by a weasel before it is packaged. We drink it every morning.
