America has such a strong influence on so many different things all across the world. While everything from sports and music to movies and the business world is slightly changed by American culture, the one area that is heavily influenced by America is food.
People from all over the world travel to America to sample some of the tastiest and unique food. In fact, some travel companies offer entire holiday packages that focus solely on sampling different food from various cities all across America.
If you are a foodie and even if you aren’t, you may be wondering what cities would be included on a holiday tour like this. We will take a look at some of the greatest American food cities so you can create your own food sampling holiday itinerary.
New York City, New York
New York City is a city filled with round the clock attractions and entertainment. That also includes restaurants. Travellers could spend 24 hours straight sampling all types of food from unique ethnic culinary creations from some of the world’s top chefs to traditional American food dishes.
If you only have limited time in America, this is the city to go to on your holiday. You will get to sample the largest variety of food without having to leave the city.
Skip travelling to Italy and opt to visit Chicago, Illinois instead. The Chicago culinary scene is heavily influenced by Italian cuisine. There are hundreds of restaurants and eateries that offer everything from meatball subs and award-winning pizza to rich pasta dishes and tasty desserts.
What is so unique about Chicago is that the variety of restaurants you can choose. One night you could enjoy a 5-course dinner at a 5-star restaurant while the next night you can have a hearty meal at an independently owned local mom-and-pop shop. No matter which type of place you choose to eat, you are certain to be treated to a mouth-watering meal.
Southern cuisine is unique to America. Nashville is the place to go to taste this unique culinary delight.
What makes Nashville the Southern culinary capital of America is that corporate chain restaurants haven’t ruined it. Most of the dining establishments which serve Southern food in Nashville are independently owned and typically run by families. When you eat at these restaurants, it is like you are getting a home cooked meal made by your own family.
If you are an adventurous foodie, Nashville has a lot of fine dining establishments run by celebrity chefs. These fancy, 5-star restaurants serve everything from traditional American food such as gourmet hamburgers to ethnic delights like Chinese, Indian and European influenced cuisines.
