From Anchovy To Zucchini: Taste The World’s Top Foods With Wendy Wu Tours

August 18, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

CNN Travel recently asked their readers to vote on the world’s best foods via a Facebook poll. More than 35,000 people voted, from all around the world. The results are both delicious and easily accessible for Australian travellers. Asia, you’ve won the tastebud challenge with a huge 50% of all of the world’s favourite foods, as voted by the people!

But because we’re the experts in Asia, we’ve got our top tips for exactly where you can taste the people’s favourites – they are, in fact, our favourites within the favourites. So, without further ado here’s our “Wu v Food!” courtesy of the Wendy Wu Tours team – and how you can see them in 2018 with our Early Bird Specials!

50. Goi cuon, Vietnam. Also known as “Summer rolls”.
Favourite of: Melissa, Marketing Specialist
Why I love it: The freshness of the herbs inside was the perfect antidote to the heat of the monsoon.
Where I ate them: Cruising Halong Bay, the junk boat crew showed us how to make them, and then we all feasted!
Taste them during: 12-day Vietnam at a Glance. From $2,980 per person twin share. Save $400 per person.

39. Masala Dosa, India
Favourite of: Aaron, Reservations Supervisor
Why I love it: A giant rolled up pancake filled with spiced potato, and dipped into tamarind sauce or sambal or coconut chutney – they are delicious for brekky or lunch and so fun to eat!
Where I ate it: Sailing the backwaters on a houseboat in Kerala, as we passed lush rice paddies, temples and coconut groves.
Taste them during: 17 day Kerala and the Southern Highlights. From $5,040 per person twin share. Save $600 per person.

34. Prawn Dumpling, Hong Kong

Favourite of: Angela, Product Executive
Why I love it: I’d had yum cha in Australia, but a prawn dumpling – or Har gow by it’s Cantonese name – was a mouth-explosion of thin, smooth dough, cuddled around a soft prawn, bamboo shoot and spring onion centre.
Where I ate it: Din Tai Fung, Kowloon
Taste them during: 16-day Cities of the Orient. From $5,860 per person twin share. Save $500 per person.

20. Pho, Vietnam.
Favourite of: Becs, Product Executive
Why I love it: I love that rich umami flavour of the stock, with the ginger, peppercorns, cloves, anise, cinnamon and fish sauce. Sitting on a tiny plastic side-of-the-road “restaurant”, being delivered a giant bowl filled with noodles and slices of beef…just heaven.
Where I ate it: Hanoi’s old Quarter
Taste it during: 16-day Angkor to the Bay. From $4,280 per person twin share. Save $300 per person.

9. Peking Duck, China.
Favourite of: Elisa, Marketing Specialist
Why I love it: That marinade! It’s made with lemon, honey, soy, rice wine and warming spices like cinnamon and anise. I love folding it into pancakes, like a little gift!
Where I ate it: Beijing, where it was created!
Taste it during: 9-day In Pursuit of Pandas. From $2,920 per person twin share. Save $500 per person.

8. Ramen, Japan.
Favourite of: Lauren, Content Specialist
Why I love it: All noodle soup is amazing, but ramen kicks it up a notch. The standard ramen broth is usually made from pork or chicken bones. From there, I choose a Shoyu flavour, and add a boiled egg with the yolk still runny, and Chashu pork belly. I’m drooling just thinking about it.
Where I ate it: Osaka, at a hole-in-the-wall on Dotonburi
Taste them on: 9-day A Week in Japan. From $6,140 per person twin share. Save $800 per person.

3. Sushi, Japan
Favourite of: Nicole, Senior Product Executive
Why I love it: fresh sushi for breakfast is such a treat in Japan. I like to order the chu toro (fatty tuna) for a generously cut piece.
Where to eat it: Early in the morning from Tokyo Fish Market! It doesn’t get any fresher!
Taste it on: 12-day Jewels of Japan. From $9,260 per person twin share. Save $1,100 per person.
