5 Must-try local food

  • Apr 28, 2021

We may not be culinary experts, but we sure have fun trying. Over the years we’ve tested out many places big and small, so whether you’re following your trip leader “another 5 mins” down a maze of back alleys to that mom n pop cafe, or rolling up your sleeves to learn some tips from the locals, we’ll be there to immerse you in the culinary experience of your choosing.

Here's our top 5 "must-try" culinary experiences on offer:

When your table is this close to the Mediterranean Sea, its no wonder the seafood here is some of the freshest and tastiest in all of Greece!  And if fresh-caught grilled Octopus or Swordfish isn't your thing, at least you'll be swept away by the charm, character and peaceful sea-breeze of this quiet little fishing village.





We think the best Paella we taste on all of our Spain trips is by far the one each of our groups make from scratch with the help of our friends at Taller Andaluz de Cocina. Learning how to cook this traditional Spanish meal is made even sweeter with the Sangria we make alongside it.





Thai food in Thailand is even better than you can imagine. Your tastebuds will be in overdrive throughout your trip as we get you trying some classic dishes like Tom Yum Soup, Penang Curry, Green Curry and Chicken with Cashew Nut.  And for those looking to throw on their chef hats and learn some tips and tricks, we know just the place!  We've been bringing groups to Pum and her talented team since we started running trips in Thailand. Classes are light and fun, and we guarantee you'll not only leave with a full belly and a full heart, but some sweet dance moves for when you make your next curry paste at home from scratch! 


4. Ω! Χαμός (O! Hamos), Milos Greece

The locals can't get enough of this place and neither can we! There's something incredible about the al fresco dining experience here, made even better with the personal touch this family add to the freshest locally-sourced ingredients taken right from the island. There's a good chance you whizzed by the goats that made your cheese earlier that day on your ATV!





A visit to New Zealand wouldn't be complete without experiencing a 'hangi', a traditional Maori method of cooking food using heated rocks buried in a pit oven underground. Paired with some of the finest wine in the world and you're sure to be in tastebud heaven during an evening at Tamaki Maori Village.
