Finding Authentic Food Spots
When it comes to exploring a new city, this can be one of the most difficult skills to acquire. All too often, the highest quality local food is hidden away from view whilst the main roads are full of the big restaurant chains you can visit back at home.
Thanks to the wonders of technology, though, this issue is disappearing. There are numerous nifty apps that give you very reliable recommendations for the best authentic local food. LocalEats, for example, aggregates reviews and opinions from bloggers, online reviews and food critics in order to carefully rank each place nearby. Our favourite, though, is Localfu, which connects you to a long-time local resident for an honest chat about all the best spots, food or otherwise, nearby.
Discussion Forums – For Honest Recommendations
Whether you’re after a great hidden food spot or a local day trip, we always recommend checking out online discussion forums. These are spaces that tend to be void of advertisement and full of like-minded travellers sharing their honest recommendations based on experience. The best places for these tend to be the TripAdvisor Travel Forum and Reddit – just search up your question on both and the chances are someone has asked it before!
