Image by mnadi via FlickrWhen you travel, the guide books tell you about transport, hotels and restaurants, but if you want a real sense of a place, it's the food that matters.
I've found this on so many holidays....the recommended restaurants dull, or over priced, or just plain rip offs.
So much better to follow the locals at lunchtime...see where they eat, and, more importantly, what they eat.
Now there's a site to help you.
Click on a city...and you'll find a local dish.
Why not contribute suggestions from your own region? Just click on the site and take a look.
I've put this on my Costa Rica blog....but with a good thing like this, it's impossible to over egg the pudding.
