The road has so many unexpected surprises, but the one that has caught on most to pop culture of late is the food. You have everything from Anthony Bourdain to Top Chef traveling about, talking about food, and showing you the good and bad. And to be honest, I love it. No better way to get a peek into a culture than through their food. So the following photographs are my food favorites and hates. Things that were so good, unique, and tasty that I had to share them. Others so nasty and vile that I had to experience them for my self.
So please enjoy my food fetishes.
Seafood grill. The fresh fish tastes so much better then I have ever had before. This is grilled prawn stuffed with cheese.
Gili Air, Indonesia
Mixed seafood and meat kebab. Not bad for four dollars.
Gili Trawangan, Indonesia
Dragon fruit on the beach. Cool looking, but not really that tasty, kinda bland.
Gili Trawangan, Indonesia
Fresh caught fish grilled to perfection on Virgin Beach.
Sweet and Sour chicken on a pineapple, Thai Restaurant.
Ok, this is not food, but Coffee. This guy made us numerous coffees and nonalcoholic cocktails all for free.
This was our lunch that we had as we were island hopping. The fish were caught that morning then grilled on the island. They cut the pineapple into cool shapes. This was such a delicious meal made in the middle of nowhere.
El Nido, Philippines
Street food. The green vegetable dish was the most disgusting thing I have had so far. Really bitter and fishy. We were not sure if it was sea cucumber or what. The mug was filled with chicken broth. I had chicken giblets which were actually really good.
This was a Filipino fast food place that we ate at. The owners woke up a three am to cook, then the food would be in covered pots all day and they would reheat it when you ordered. No worries about food going bad here.
Food being sold on street.
Seafood sizzling hot plate.
George Hogan showing us the art of making a seafood potato pancake. Tokyo, Japan
Man, these make me hungry!
Lol. The dried bonito flakes on that okonomiyaki do look a bit like worms.
I remember the first time havnh that dish and I really wasnt sure uf they were alive. So good though, I really wish they had that in the states.
So many things in Japan look crazy, but it all taste so amazing.
The photography is amazing! The food is presented so beautifully.
Thanks so much. I consider myself a bit of a foodie, but most definitely not a food photographer. I have to update this section because I have so many more exciting foods to add. I love all the markets around the wirld.
It has to be amazing. Nothing speaks about a culture more than food, music and art.
Thanks so much for checking it out.
