Food Worth Traveling For
Savor these can’t-miss, mouth-watering dishes that are well worth the trip.
Travel brings out the inner foodie in all of us. From tasting an exotic dish, to trying an old favorite prepared in a different fashion, we always remember the food we ate along the way. Dive into some of our favorites.
1. Lobster Pot Pie
This dish orginated in Orange County, California at Stonehill Tavern. Prepared and served tableside, the Lobster Pot Pie is a creative Michael Mina dish that features a whole Maine lobster served in a copper pot, and paired with rich brandied lobster cream and vegetables. This beloved classic hits all the right notes.
2. Sweet Mango Pancakes
Need a reason to travel to Waikiki Beach, other than the sandy beaches and ocean views? Well, now you have one: the sweet mango pancakes found at the Veranda Restaurant. This delicious dish is comprised of mango pancakes topped with Hawaii’s original tropical granola and fresh seasonal berries. Need we say more?
3. Tuna Tartare Guacamole
This isn’t your ordinary chip & dip appetizer. The Tuna Tartare Guacamole dish at Richard Sandoval’s restaurant, Maya in Beaver Creek, features wonton chips (trust us, these are remarkable!) along with avocados, serrano and chipotle peppers topped with sesame seeds. A melt-in-your-mouth kind of appetizer.
4. Barbacoa Navajo Churro Sheep
As the only AAA Five-Diamond/Forbes Five-Star dining experience in Arizona, Kai at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort & Spa features Native American inspired cuisine. Feeling bold? Order the Barbacoa Navajo Churro Sheep dish featuring an olive tapenade popover, chimichurri, and topped with a fried egg. This unforgettable masterpiece is well worth the visit.
