In New York you cannot miss out on the hot dogs! Visit a cart on one of New Yorks most intersected corners and enjoy a hot dog with ketchup, mustard and onion! Watch out not to stain yourself!
In Turkey you cant miss having a real Doner Kebab made by the local themselves. Originally doner kebabs were served under buttered rice but with the need-of-the-time they have evolved to pita breads wrapped around the meat! Practical to travel and walk around visiting the city.
In Casablanca dont miss out on the spicy stew couscous made out of vegetables, chicken and lamb. Couscous can authentically only be made in a couscoussier so after you enjoy your meal, dont forget to take a peek in the kitchen and discover this curious vessel!
What would a trip to India be without trying the curry in the Land of Curries! The curry, usually mixed with coconut and spices can be eaten with the fragrant Basmati rice or with a chapati (unleavened flat bread).
