    Culinary destinations

    Hello everyone! I was wondering what are some of the best culinary experiences you've have while traveling across america. What were the states/cities that you think are great culinary destinations? I'm talking about really good food, not necessarily the healthy type :P Because I believe almost everything goes while you're on a vacation Specially if you love food in general, so what is it guys?

    By the way, I might go on a culinary tour across the US in the future, so I'd really appreciate your suggestions!

    I've actually never traveled specifically for you know. . .a culinary experience per se. Let's just say you stumble into some of these things as you go. . .

    Anyway there are those who've actually done it, experienced it and wrote about it.

    Re: Culinary destinations

    I enjoy the ethnic food in Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, Canada (which are sister cities) across the river. There is a "Greektown" with incredible authentic food and "middle eastern dancing" (belly) to boot. The Italian food on both sides of the boarder there is incredible. There is also the classic "steak house meals" and now I understand they have legalized gambling in both cities and new restaurants are added.

    Now as to the fun food in the area..some of the best "coney island" hot dogs, White Castle hamburgers, pizza by the square, wonderful sub sandwiches and some down right good bbq. Thats all for starters.

    I've yet to travel for that purpose specifically, but in my travels 2 places stand out. Flagstaff, Arizona and New Orleans, Louisiana. Both just amazingly diverse options of great food...you almost can't go wrong with anything you try in New Orleans, and Flagstaff has an incredible selection of various ethic foods (Thai stood out for us!) and healthy options..a benefit to being an arts college town .

    I've never traveled just for culinary pleasure, but I have to say, New Mexico has a flavor that I didn't know existed. They pretty much eat hot peppers on everything. Not exactly my cup of tea, but I'm sure my fiance would be in heaven!

    I had a look at the article, and there were some interesting food places there that I didn't even hear of, not to mention that I didn't get to visit. I have heard of Joe's Crab Shack which sells the famous stone crabs of Florida, but I didn't want to visit there because I don't like crabs. But most of the other places I would like to visit. A great food destination in New York that you can visit is Junior's World Famous Cheesecake Factory in Brooklyn. I have never tasted cheese cake that good before or after visiting that place! I wish I had some now!

    Hi Dennis! Thanks for sharing this article, everything looked SUPER delicious, but some looked super unhealthy :P Like for example ''Atlanta'', but... mad did that look good!!!! I love onion rings!! Not a big fan of the ''cincinnati'' one... that chili looked a bit odd... was that a load of cheese on it?! Kansas city and Memphis are the absolute winners for me! I'm definitely going to check those two destinations one day :P Maybe when I retire and I have nothing else to do

    Omg... you had me at ''BBQ'', lol! But seriously, it sounds like you have access to the best of the best of both sides You are so lucky to be living in the right border! I'll definitely visit this place one day, I actually have some friends in Michigan... and I really like the idea of visiting Canada one day. This is definitely the right place to go, looks like those two cities offer a lot variety when it comes to food!!! Oh my...!

    New York. When I went to visit for a week, I've eaten so many different Asian Cuisine in New York and even got to try some Italian restaurant there. I love some of the Indian restaurants in Queens area as well. I am from Asia and love the variety of Asian food that is provided there. From Thai ,Japanese, Indonesian, Korean, Vietnamese and the list goes on .They are very affordable as well.

    Interesting, I guess New York is the perfect culinary destination because there are people from all around the world living there I think I might give this city a try one day. I totally love asian food, but so far I've only tried chinese, japanese and vietnamese food. I really think I need to expand my culinary horizons New York sounds like the right place to go!

    I'm guessing New Orleans food is really influenced by the french culture and they use a lot seafood, right? That's perfect, because I really love having seafood! I might go to New Orleans one day, I'm really interested in the history of that place, I think it's extremely interesting; enjoying the local food will be just a nice plus! I think I'll be traveling a lot with my soon-to-be husband

    That's basically an amazing thing and there is no doubt with it. If we see new york niagara falls tours is one of those experiences which are surely reasonable with a lot.
