‘When experiencing a new location, we often want new experiences, as well,’ says Jeanette Bunn of Travel To Go. One of the more memorable experiences about a new location is the food that you find while there. The cuisine at a new location can leave a big impression of what we think of the destination, and can sometimes make or break a good impression. If looking for good places to eat is on the agenda, here are some good tips for locating those local favorites.
Do some research online before visiting. With social media being a powerful method of spreading information, there’s a big chance that a reputable company has written a review of award-winning restaurants. Jeanette Bunn believes that using this method to find restaurants around the area that will be visited will be helpful, as it would make for planning the trip a lot easier, as well.
Ask the locals. If a place is popular, they’re most likely going to be talking about it. Local restaurants with good food don’t go forgotten by those who live there, and it’s guaranteed that asking people who live in a certain city will yield positive results when it comes to finding a good restaurant. If more than one local recommends the same restaurant, chances are that it’s the one to visit!
Some smart phone apps are good for finding local restaurants to visit. They’ll tell you how far away they are, give a list of reviews from people who ate there, and even give the full menu and pictures of the food. Travel To Go Executive, Jeanette Bunn feels that this can be helpful for getting in-depth info about a recommended restaurant or just help with finding the next local hot-spot for a great dining experience.
