If there’s one thing that everyone loves, it’s going out to eat. When you live in a city, you’ll likely want to entertain yourself, your partner, or your family and friends with a standard fusion restaurant that will offer standard restaurant foods, like spaghetti, burgers, and rice dishes.
However, that can quickly get boring, especially if you’re the adventurous type who wants to taste all of the flavors of the world without traveling.
So, what are some of the more interesting types of food you can find in 2023 in most cities? Read on to find out!
Most people have heard of Persian rugs and Persian cats, but what about food?
Persian food has become more popular in the US, Europe, and Australia, meaning that if you’re out for a night in the city, in Brisbane, for example, you will more than likely come across a Brisbane Persian restaurant.
Most Persian eateries will likely serve tamarind-stuffed fish, steamed saffron rice, and Persian kuku sabzi. Thus, if you want to try something new and tasty, Persian cuisine is the way to go!
Japanese cuisine has become more popular since the early 2000s in the US and the UK, but most people assume that Japanese food restricted to sushi. Of course, there’s more to this amazing and ancient culture than uncooked fish!
Most Japanese restaurants will likely have tempura, yakitori, sashimi, and takoyaki, typically served together with green tea or matcha tea. Most of these dishes are made from a rice combo, usually with meat that has been seasoned and fried, making for a tasty treat when you’re on a night out.
With the growth of K-pop, Korean food has become more mainstay in the West.
So, if you’re a fan of K-pop, why not look to eat at a Korean restaurant? The food can range from the 2,000-year-old kimchi, which is a spicy sidekick, to a soft tofu stew. Yes, the Koreans were eating tofu well before the vegan craze became a thing!
Of course, many other Korean dishes are noodle-based, with japchae and potato noodles being tasty alternatives to standard noodles that you should seek to try.
Ever heard of saltfish fritters? These are standard and well-known comfort Jamaican food, along with curried goat. Of course, if you’re going to a Jamaican eatery, there are so many other tasty and spicy foods that you can enjoy. For instance, beef patties, jerk chicken (or goat), as well as something sweet for after, like coco bread or even banana fritters. Very tasty!
When it comes to Belizean food, this is the ideal food choice and restaurant choice for those who adore spicy food. This cuisine is heavily influenced by Mexican foods and is big on bread, tortillas, and spicy side dishes.
So, why not try fry jacks, which are similar to pancakes? Or, why not opt for hudut, which is a spicy, mashed plantain-based meal, or even cassava? All very hot, very tasty, and very different from anything else you’ll find!
