Finding good eats is truly exciting.
You will not only learn more about a place as you do your research on where to go for breakfast, but also learn more about a place’s history as you find out about the establishment where you’re planning to have lunch and learn more about a place’s culture as you find out about the people working in the establishment where you’re planning to have dinner.
But you know what?
Sometimes, the best things in life are found in unexpected places – and finding good eats in unexpected places is no exception.
This includes finding a great pizza parlor in that old shack on your right, which was actually first opened back in the 19th century; and finding a great coffee café in that holed wall on your left, which was actually first opened the day you were born.
That being said, here are some additional tips when finding good eats in unexpected places:
Ask a local for recommendations.
The fact that really good eats are usually found somewhere people don’t frequent much, it only means that only locals get to eat or to drink, as well as hang out with their friends or dine out with their families, there. The silver lining? Finding good eats found in unexpected places is a privilege, one that will even make the locals scrambling to provide recommendations for others.
Never fail to look around.
You’ll never know. That pub down the block also a sushi restaurant. You’ll also never know. That club across the street is also a taco restaurant. Never fail to look around when looking for good eats. Unexpected places like those ones already packed with a large crowd of people are also those who have a variety of really good eats to offer for those who were brave enough to look for them.
And when you find the perfect one, don’t forget to take pictures as it will be your turn to recommend these places to others. If you can, do this like you’re taking pictures of Mexican food for added engagement.
