What's the Best Country in Asia for a Foodie?

by HunterC »

Malaysia! There is a great diversity in the cuisines there, you won't get bored at all. Some hotels offer cooking classes for guests, check the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, I think they did.

I have two weeks to travel this spring and I'll admit it: I travel to eat (and take cooking classes). I'm thinking either Japan or Thailand, but is there another country that would be even better? Where would you go, if it was all about the food.

China by a long shot!   China has many different foods depending on where you are.  There are 57 minorities within China and each minority has their own food.   Sichuan food of course is famous but there are many other kinds of food within China that I have enjoyed greatly with my 50+ times travel to China in 26 years covering the whole country.  The French are famous for food in the western world and China is famous for food in the Asian world.   I have eaten food in China that I crave when arriving home but can not wait to go next time.  Camphor smoked duck is one of my very favorites.  You will not get any exotic foods if you do not want them such as dog and donkey.  Donkey I have tasted but didn't like it as it was like eating liver.  One of the funny ones I had at a banquet at a factory.  It is typical to serve about six differnt small plates before the meal is started to serve.  These are consumed with drinks to welcome the guests but most meals in China also include these small horderves.  One I liked was thinly sliced smoked meat.  I noted few others were tasting it and as it came around to my place on the spinning table, I continued to eat a few slices not wanting to take all of it.  After a few rounds I had eaten most of it but left a few peices to be polite.  My friend asked me if I like that horderve and I said of course.  He said something to the other guests who were all Chinese and they smiled a lot as if pleased that I like it.  It is not polite to ask what you are eating, but I couldn't resist asking since I would like to order it again sometime.   It was Yak Penis!    :-)    Be careful what you ask.....but enjoy it if you like it.

Malaysia and VietNam


My eating adventure in Penang Islands, Malaysia was unforgettable. Curry Mee, Hokkien Mee, Popiah… are dishes you guys must try in George Town.
VietNam has many sidewalk hawkers and is famous for Pho. But there are many other local foods I just had knew only when I joined this tour https://www.bestpricevn.com/Tour_Hanoi-Walkie-Foodie-Tour.html such as mixed pho, banh mi, ban cuon, beef noodle, egg coffee…

A couple of months ago, I was into a foodie tour in India & Sri Lanka with my family. Both countries are offering an unparalleled diversity of flavours and culture found nowhere else in the world. cooking in India means mouth watering curries and tandoors in the kitchen. food is a serious business in India, and Indian cuisine & restaurants are popular in most parts of the world. as it is one of the largest countries, its cuisine is quite varied. Even though Sri Lanka is a small island, you would fall in love with the rich cultural & Natural diversity and their Buddhist pre-dominant culture. Although Sri Lankan & Indian customs, traditions & tastes are different, both the countries share one common thing; using spices they create a rich flavour profile. both countries combine a different combination of sweet, sour, savoury and spicy flavours. I had a Lovely introduction into the delicious Indian cuisine in Kerala. I had an excellent Cooking class in Sri Lanka which was conducted by a Colombo Tour Guide. both of them were perfect in teaching about their culture and cooking. they did a great job of explaining every spice and everything we were making.  we had great conversations about life in India & Sri Lanka including market tour.
