Europe's Best Food Spots on camera

1. Europe’s Best Food Spots – Greece

Experience Europe’s Best Food Spots in Greece. Who can possibly dislike food-filled filo pastry? Greek food is hard to fault and it probably has something to do with their history. The country’s culinary culture is considered to be over 4,000 years old. You can’t beat experience and it’s why it’s Europe’s Best Food Spots.

 

2. Amsterdam

The moment you leave the train station, you’re already bombarded with an array of amazing choices. First things first. Rent a bicycle. Step 2. Ride where your nose takes you! Europe’s Best Food Spots are in Amsterdam for a variety of reasons. No matter your budget, there’s something for everyone! You could visit for a week and subsist solely off of street treats and market fare.

Don’t know where to start? Get a fast introduction to the Amsterdam food scene with a plate of cured herring from one of the city’s many herring carts or haringhandels. If it’s cooked fish you crave then try kibbeling. Battered and deep-fried white fish served with a mayonnaise sauce. For dessert. Pop into any of the 100’s of bakeries.

If you’re looking for something savory, you won’t be short of options for cheese. They are literally on every street corner.  Our favorite? A stroopwaffel comprised of two thin waffles, deep fried with gooey goodness inside and topped off with powdered sugar.

 

3. Italy

How could we even think of naming Europe’s Best Food Spots and not include Italy! Is there a European country with more iconic food? Hello, carbs! Pizza and pasta are everyone’s go-to! Just remember that every region has their specialty and is season dependent.

4. Europe’s Best Food Spots – France

Lyon, known as France’s gourmet capital has never been more accessible, with a direct train to London and TGV connections that will whisk you to Paris or Marseille in under two hours. Are your taste buds feeling adventurous? Good! We have a treat for you! Try out the local specialty; tablier de sapeur (breaded tripe), then finish it off with a visit to the ever-popular Croix-Rousse district for a few drinks out on the town.

This may be one of Europe’s Best Food Spots but it doesn’t come without a warning: “entrée” can be used in other parts of the world to mean “main dish,” but in French, it actually means “appetizer.” So stick with “entrée” for appetizer and “plat” for the main dish, and you’ll come out on the other side with a full stomach and a great experience.

 

5. London

London’s food scene is still part of Europe’s Best Food Spots until we know the outcome of the Brexit. London scene is a mish-mash of traditional culinary vision and modern innovation. No food-centric trip to London is complete without at least one-afternoon tea, a Sunday roast at the neighborhood pub accompanied by a pint of bitters or some takeaway fish and chips from one of the city’s many ‘chippies.’ If Michelin-starred kitchens are more your thing, then you’re still in the right place. There are currently five restaurants in the UK which hold three Michelin stars. The Waterside Inn, Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester, The Araki, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, and The Fat Duck.
