Eating at home is an easy thing but what do you do abroad?
It’s all about thrills but soon you’re juggling
budget and belly, boldness and balance
and even while you gorge yourself on gorgeousness
and noodles and gimbap and bibimbap
you’ve gotta keep those mitochondria buzzing
in your dear old worn-out home-grown gut
and preferably without a lot of fussing.
Here are my travel rules for eating.
- Breakfast as familiar and normal as possible
- Main meal (whenever) as surprising and foreign as possible
- Snack (whenever) as cheap and healthy as possible.
Rules are made to be broken and these dainty
cherry, chocolate and green tea cakes
were my main meal yesterday.
