The best gastronomic experiences I had in 2017

Pad Thai from Thai Villa in New York City


Eating is one of the best things in life, and trying typical dishes from others countries is an amazing way to discover more about its culture and flavors. I love to try something typical when I’m visiting another country (or city), or even visit new sites in the place I live.

When I was checking the pictures of what I ate in 2017, I realized I selected a lot of small bites and desserts as well, so I divided the list into three categories: Dishes (that includes real dishes, breakfast, sandwiches/burgers), Small Bites and Sweet Treats. But they all have something in common; I’d eat them again right now!

 

Here are the best gastronomic experiences I had in 2017

Those were the things that I ate and enjoyed the most in 2017. This list is purely based on my opinion, of course. You can eat the same dishes at the same places and not feel the same way about them since each person has a different taste.

 

What did you eat this year that makes your mouth water when you think about it? Let me know about the gastronomic experiences you had in 2017!
