Macallan Scotch—Speyside, Scotland

A fifth of this exquisite 25-year-old Macallan will cost you about $600, but once you have a taste of it, you won’t stop craving for more (never mind the price); just like a vampire craves for blood! Imagine “drinking” a campfire on the coldest wintry night; that’s exactly the feeling I am talking about. The best place to enjoy this drink is in the southeast of Aviemore (Speyside to be precise) where it’s snowy with plenty of shallow streams to listen to.

Macallan Scotch Scotland

Spotted Dick—London, England

Also called Plum Duff, the Spotted Dick is a dessert pudding that’s made of dried currants, custard, and rum as the main ingredients. In the best restaurants, they add a generous douse of your favorite rum on top and that’s what gives the flavor which you are so gonna relish.

Churrasco—Belem, Brazil

Churrasco is a particularly Brazilian and Argentinian style of serving meat. As it is, these two countries are internationally known for great steaks; while they have some equally great pork, lamb, mutton, chicken and seafood. Some restaurants serve all you can eat, sliced fresh off the grill, along with corn, rice, and fresh fruits, especially mangoes. Belem will serve you some of the “bestest” Churrasco you will ever dig in!

Churrasco Brazil

Pizza—Napoli, Italy

The Italians made the pizza and as a matter of fact, there is no better place to taste the pizza except for in Italy. The very first pizza was invented in Napoli (Naples) in Italy by the poorer class who couldn’t afford anything other than bread dough, tomatoes and cheese. Putting these three items and baked gives you the pizza which is one of personal favorite food, I will admit. The extremely good tomatoes found in the San Marzano area in Napoli gives the traditional pizza the superb taste; a taste you will die for, I bet!

Pizza Italy

Fire-Roasted Lamb—Stavros, Crete

The Greeks know how to have fun, and if you can’t decide which you like more, mountains or a beach, just settle for both. What makes your vacation better is the exquisite fire-roasted lamb that’s roasted on a spit outside is a Grecian tradition, and you haven’t lived until you’ve tried it cooked by Grecian grandmothers!

Fire Roasted Lamp

It is typically rubbed with apples several times during cooking, and served with ghanoush, vegetable-stuffed grape leaves, Greek red wine, and homemade baklava. There are plenty of quaint beachfront restaurants in Stavros, in the shadow of the Akrotirian Mountains. Before, during and after supper, as you will be eating with friendly strangers, locals and tourists, you’ll be encouraged to drink ouzo, a Greek liquor that tastes like aniseed.

Fire Roasted Lamp Crete

Sachertorte—Vienna, Austria

Vienna is world famous for its desserts, and the sachertorte at the Sacher Hotel is even more world-famous among the world famous desserts. It is a dry chocolate cake, with apricot jam between layers, and dark chocolate icing on the top and sides. The only place outside Vienna where you can find it is a Sacher shop in Bolzano, Italy. It is served with whipped, heavy cream, which balances its dry flavor. A must-try for pastry lovers!

Sachertorte Austria

Trockenbeerenauslese—Bavarian Alps

Germany has its fair share of a claim to the world’s wines. Trockenbeerenauslese is extraordinarily sweet, white wine, with so much sugar in it that it’s syrupy.


If you’ve had a taste of bad wine and lost your liking for it, this will get you back on track. It is expensive, but can have as much as 300 grams of sugar per bottle, which will give you diabetes if you want it to. Alcohol content is therefore quite low as wines go, which means you can drink quite a lot before you get drunk. It makes a great dessert in itself, and goes very well with a local pretzel, a fresh, big one, with salt to cut the wine’s sweetness.

Germany Wine

Lobster and Cracked Crab—Pink Beaches of Harbor Island, Bahamas

Perhaps you aren’t as big a fan of mountains as you are of the tropics. Harbor Island is world famous for its pink-sand beaches, and Dunmore Town caters to tourists with outstanding seafood restaurants the highlights of which are lobsters and cracked crabs. Have your fruit of the sea brought out to you on the beach in the late afternoon, and the sunset will be behind you, over the palm and coconut trees. There is no better way to spend a laid-back afternoon!

Seafood Bahamas


At least one supper you eat should have the greatest wine in the world. Domaine de la Romanee-Conti is a very small vineyard, only 4 acres, and only produces about 5,000 bottles a year, but those 5,000 have a taste beyond comprehension. Rather than trying to describe the taste, it would simply suffice to say that a very good vintage will be 20 to 30 years old and will cost you no less than $900 a glass, or you can say about $3,600 a bottle. Some vintages have sold at auction for $14,000 a bottle. It’s all about money, honey!

Romanee Conti France

Spaghetti Bolognese—Bologna, Italy

For good and all, now and forever, the greatest spaghetti in the world is in Italy, and the finest restaurants are in Bologna.

Spagetti Bolognese Italy

Its nickname is “di Grassa,” “Bologna the Fat.” Sure, the Chinese invented the noodles, but tomato sauces are expressly Italian. The best spaghetti you will find is at Clorofilla, Strada Maggiore, Bologna, Bologne.

It’s advised to carry a photocopy of the passport with you while going out, keeping the original locked in the hotel’s safe-deposit vault. International travel safety measures highly encourage this action.
