Hey friends! I don’t know about Jew, but I am a big fan of trying local cuisine. What would a trip to Italy be without pasta and gelato? Or an exodus to Israel be without falafel and Magnum ice cream? Or a venture to Canada be without poutine and Canadian bacon? Not nearly as fun, I don’t think! So when MyCityCuisine recently contacted me about their collaborative Wiki project, I just had to spread the word. They are looking for contributors like you to help build this resource for travelers and foodies interested in different cuisines.
What is MyCityCuisine you ask? Great question! Here is a bit from their website:
“MyCityCuisine is a wiki project. Its goal is to help travelers discover the local food from around the world. Food has always been an integral part of the local culture so, naturally, tasting local food is often high on most traveler’s to-do lists. However, until now, there was no single comprehensive source providing this particular information for cities around the world.
“What should I order?”, an inevitable question faced by all travelers sitting in a restaurant, in a foreign country. MyCityCuisine is a project to create a free, reliable and up-to-date guide to the most original and tasty local foods from different countries of the world. This is an open project, so we encourage everyone to contribute to it.”
I love this! This isn’t an Austin, TX section yet, but I hope to contribute with all things breakfast taco and brisket. Mmmm brisket. I hope you guys will contribute too!
Question of the week: What is your favorite local food from your travels? How about in your own hometown?
