Sampling delicious pintxos along the grid of narrow streets in San Sebastián’s old town has been named the #1 best food experience in the world, according to global travel authority Lonely Planet‘s Ultimate Eats.
In the much-anticipated follow-up to Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel, Ultimate Eats: The World’s Top 500 Food Experiences…Ranked (Lonely Planet Food / $29.99 / August 2018) travels the world with an insatiable appetite to present the definitive foodie bucket-list of the world’s top 500 food experiences – ranked.
Whether it’s baozi in Shanghai, steak tartare in Paris or clam chowder in Boston – food and place are inextricably connected. Whenever we eat while traveling, we don’t just taste the dish itself but experience the whirl of people, languages, aromas and sounds that are unique to that destination. That’s what makes each dish memorable, and why the food experience is always so much more than what’s in the plate, bowl or glass in front of you.
Ultimate Eats is Lonely Planet‘s collection of the planet’s most thrilling and famous culinary experiences; each entry in the list details an experience, the culture behind it, and what makes it so special. It also includes favorite food experiences as nominated by 20 of the world’s top chefs and food writers – from José Andrés to Andrew Zimmern.
