I will definitely try different foods wherever I go. I tried Ostrich and Boar in South Africa. The Ostrich tasted like beef and the Boar tasted like barbecued pork. Oh, and I have tried Alligator, which taste like chicken. I am quite adventurous when it comes to food.

I love trying out new dishes, but I'm definitely a bit hesitant sometimes. I definitely agree with a lot of the above though - one of the best things about traveling is trying out different foods!

Ha - I didn't realize that response was almost verbatum to one of the multiple choices :)

Oh Absolutely. Half my reason for traveling is for the food! I can't understand when I am traveling with somebody, and they want to eat at a McDonalds or are afraid to try anything!

I'm a definite fan of ethnic food! I'm up for new things, as long as it doesn't have meat! :D

Absolutely! You wouldn't go to India to eat McDonalds (even though their McDonalds differs from ours).

Yes absolutely! That's what makes a trip more exciting.

If you're traveling, check out this CDC website! You can enter the country you are traveling to and receive all the updated health information for that area.

It's good to be cautious for sure. My best friends step-mom just came back from a vaction in Mexico and is still really sick from a foodborne illness contracted there. She may take months to fully recover, it's so sad.

I was really picky as a kid, and now that my tastes have broadened, I look forward to trying new things! If you don't, you miss out!

I absolutely try new foods! When you travel the point is to get away from your everyday life. To me, it seems silly to have the same food you would eat at home.

Totally depends on where I am. I try new things if the place looks clean, but if the town is kinda scary, i usually wait to eat until I find something I know. I know that's kind of crazy, but it's psychological I'm sure.

Depends on where I go. I have this irrational fear of being food poisoned, so I tend to be a bit cautious.

Food is the best part of going to a new place!

Some of the best foods that I love are from the local flare. I always make it a point to try local foods. For example in Jamacia they have "coco bread" which is the tastiest bread I have ever had. I wish I had some now. :smile:

Always! I'm all about sampling local cuisines, checking out farmer's markets and grocery stores (along with purchasing spices and products that are native to that area), and asking for recipes at restaurants.
