You can never really learn about a culture if you haven’t tried their food. This is one of the most important features of any country, besides its history, clothing, folklore, and other aspects, after all. It’s actually part of its history and traditions, which is why one of the most important highlights of any trip is finding the best places to eat.

It can be a bit challenging to find good, authentic restaurants in a place that you haven’t been to before, since you barely know anything about it at all. The good news is there are various ways to find your way around any place and try out some of the most delicious cuisines they have. Here are some tips on how to find good places to eat when you’re away from home.

The Easiest And Most Reliable Tip: Ask Friends

Asking your friends who have been to that destination before is the ultimate way to find the best places to eat, especially since they know you, so they know what you enjoy eating and will guide you to places that accommodate that. Friends will recommend good, authentic places, which will save you a lot of time on your trip. You can also ask them to tell you where to find these places, or at least tell you their names and the areas so you can find them.

Check Out Local Food Blogs

Another great way to find those hidden gems in any place you’re travelling to is to search for food blogs written by locals. It’s important to make sure they’re blog articles written by people who tried the places they write about. This way, you’d know for sure these articles are honest reviews, not restaurant ads that spice up pictures and descriptions for marketing. 


California is one of the most popular travel destinations for many reasons, including the warm weather, the beaches, cultural diversity, and the chance to run into celebrities. The city of Monetary is one of the most beautiful places there, because of all the amazing activities that can be done, the gorgeous beaches, and the delicious food. 

If you happen to travel there, and you’re about to swim and bask in the beautiful sun, you need to be ready. Getting a good breakfast in Monterey is one of the best things you can experience before a long day filled with adventure. You’ll definitely find many food bloggers who have wonders to say about how amazing the breakfast places are there.

Avoid Places That Are too Touristy

These places don’t necessarily have to be bad, but they’re usually too expensive, and they may not even be worth the money. You can find places that serve the same cuisines at lower prices, and maybe even have better quality and taste. Most of these places can be found at popular tourist attractions, so you know where you don’t want to eat.
