Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. As we move from the heat of the summer into fall and now winter, my mindset seems to shift to food. This is the time of the year that I will cook up a huge pot of vegetable soup and eat it everyday until it’s just a memory. Food is also a welcome indulgence when I travel, and I love trying the local fare. This week I am sharing food and markets discovered in my travels.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.
The Twitter hash tag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

Out of this world Nova Scotia lobster….
Actually, I have to ‘fess up here. I bought this lobster at Costco here in Daejeon, but it is imported from Nova Scotia. If you ever go to Nova Scotia, don’t miss the experience of our local delicacy. Seafood restaurants abound. The other alternative is to buy live lobsters at the local pound and cook them yourself. Easy to do if you have a large pot and a stove.
If you are in Madrid, the Mercaso San Miguel is a must see. Just steps from the Plaza Mayor, your taste buds will love you!
Spain’s churros and hot chocolate…
I don’t think anyone can understand how good they are until….you know 🙂
Jeonju Bibimbap (Korea)…
Every region of Korea is famous for different dishes. This one hails from the historic city of Jeonju. Don’t worry about the egg. The dish is very hot, and the egg cooks as you stir the rice, veggies and egg together.
Northern Thailand’s famous Khao Soi…
China’s Peking duck…
, or as it’s known these days…Beijing Duck. One of the best meals I had in China, and so cheap!
Budapest’s Great Hall…the largest indoor market in the city.
Easily accessible by tram, with a fabulous river view. In addition to all the great food, you can find fab, reasonably priced souvenirs. I loved the painted egg Christmas ornaments. If you’re in the market for authentic Hungarian paprika, look no further. The secret is, go to the back of the hall where you’ll find vendors with carts. You’ll find the best and cheapest paprika here. I bought mine from a lovely lady who could have passed for about 80. 🙂
Market ladies in Myanmar selling their goods.
The flower lady in Myanmar…
And finally, no foodie post would be complete without my favorite…Thailand’s famous Som Tom Salad…
Do you have a favorite market or food that you would travel far and wide to taste again and again?
