Eat Everything: Making the Most of Foodie Locations

No, seriously. We do want to eat everything when we travel somewhere. Honestly, we want to eat everything on a normal Friday evening– but when we travel, we try to eat even more.

When we travelled to Italy in 2014, this led to a lot of walking around, clutching our stomachs and groaning. When we planned a trip to the U.S. in 2015, I knew the American portions would not allow us to eat in the same way and still manage to stand afterwards.

Hence, my most genius travel idea yet (if I do say so myself):

We share. Everything.

One pastrami sandwich instead of two at Katz' Deli

One pastrami sandwich instead of two at Katz’ Deli. They were happy to give us two plates.

In New York, this meant that we got to try everything we wanted. Yes, this also meant that we ended up eating like hobbits: two breakfasts, two lunches, three or four afternoon snacks, dinner, an after-dinner snack… you get it.

But if we hadn’t shared everything we ate, we would never have survived the first day, let alone the whirlwind three days after that. And I am still so proud not to have had to say no to the post-lunch deep-fried Oreo I was offered at a Williamsburg street fair. (M.’s delicate Italian palate only allowed him to try one tiny bite.)
