When was the last time you said “I want to eat where the locals eat”? I’m venturing to say that the majority of travelers have said this one time or another, including myself. It’s logical…if we eat where those who reside in that town eat then we can assume we are getting a more authentic; less-touristy experience. Where this is partially true, I challenge you to ask yourself a couple things 1) are you prepared to accept that the locals might not eat as well as you imagined? 2) should you really be so disappointed in this globalized world when you hear your neighboring diners speaking English?
